What is Energy Performance Certificate?

It is a document that includes information about minimum energy need of the building and energy consumption classification, insulating properties and heating and/or cooling systems efficiency.

To Have a Better Building Energy Class:

  • For the new building that have 1000 m2 and above usage area, it will be mandatory to use central heating system instead of combi boiler.
  • Use controllers that can be programmed automatically in central heating systems.
  • If there is no central heating system prefer more efficient systems like consending combi boiler.

HEAT INSULATION

Heat insulation reduces the heat transfer between the two places that have different temperature. Insulation is done by applying heat insulation material to the outer walls, roof and floor. Heat insulation has a cost. But this cost is between 2%-5% of the building construction. This cost can be reimbursed in a few heating seasons by using less fuel, installing a small capacity heating system.

  • Windows 10-25%
  • Ceiling 25%
  • Heat bridges 20-50%
  • Infilled walls 15-25%
  • Floors 10%

 

Is heating insulation expensive?

It has a cost. But this cost is between 2%-5% of the building construction. This cost can be reimbursed in a few heating seasons by using less fuel, installing a small capacity heating system.

Insulating the building in compliance with the regulations, choosing the right appliance, yearly periodic maintenance, choosing natural gas as fuel, taking cheap and simple precautions in energy consumption helps to increase country’s economy and decrease the pollution.
