The energy rating equates to how much energy will cost you per month.
It is a combination of energy efficient heating and cooling systems with thermal insulation and airtightness with minimum thermal heat bridges.
It translates as good thermal properties in the structure, insulation and windows with low energy heating and cooling.
Energy efficiency can be further enhanced by the addition of photovoltaic systems, solar assisted water heating and calorific recovery of air exchange.
Spain has less competition in retail energy so prices are some of the highest in Europe,it is not uncommon for energy bills of 400€ per month in peaks of winter and summer, the return on investment is significant.
An A rating is not only good for your monthly expenses, it reduces dependence on outside suppliers, increases the resale value of your property and ultimately helps to reduce use of precious resources such as energy and water. Blueleaf Design strongly believes that all houses we build should have the lowest impact on the planet as possible.
