- By changing our behaviour, we can make significant energy savings and reduce the related costs. However, to see long-term effects and mitigate the risk from the future disruptions on the energy market, the solution is to invest in the measures of energy renovation of buildings/houses by:
- Increasing thermal insulation of the envelope (exterior walls, roofs, and floors), and replacement of the glazing – implementation of these measures has to comply with the requirements of the Technical regulation on rational use of energy and thermal insultation in buildings, and depending on the baseline condition of the building/house, the energy required for heating can be reduced by more than 50% - the energy renovation projects implemented so far show that the average savings in energy consumption exceed 60%;
- Replacing the existing heating systems with more efficient ones using renewable energy sources, including the systems for own electricity generation using PV panels.
Think about the ways you can reduce energy consumption and talk to a licensed design engineer for more information, and/or request the concept design to be drawn up for your house/building.
