Here are answers to some frequently asked us questions about the construction of energy-efficient homes , passive and contributions to the National Fund mortgage on their construction and acquisition .

1 Is the construction or purchase of house / flat energy-efficient in Poland is now profitable?

In the past 30 years there has been a decisive leap forward in every area , including construction . Western countries such as Germany for many years, supporting energy-efficient construction and passive. In Poland, this trend is in its infancy - a problem so far was the price . Preferential terms of financing and crediting the construction and purchase of energy-efficient houses and apartments have to change it. In the case of single-family passive houses subsidy amounts to 50 thousand . zł gross , in the case of energy-efficient homes - 30 thousand . zł gross . Slightly smaller subsidies are provided for apartments - analogous 16 and 11 thousand . zł gross .

Program payments for a mortgage is part of the priority program of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management under the title " Efficient energy use ", which is a derivative of the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 2010/31 of the European Union . Enter into force in the first half of 2013 . The Directive will enter into force in 2020 - building houses " nearly zero energy " will be the duty of all investors in Poland. Already, energy and passive houses have a higher market value than homes built in the traditional technology . Made mandatory energy certificates that must be done for example, wanting to sell the house or apartment already having an influence on the price of the real estate market .

2 What are the costs of heating in houses / homes energy efficient ?

Heating costs of energy-efficient home or apartment are minimal compared to the buildings posed in traditional technologies. This Sale of low demand for thermal energy.

Check the heating costs for energy-efficient home about the size of 200 sq ft :


3 While the higher are the costs of building a house : energy-efficient house constructed from traditional technology?

Energy-efficient houses are much more expensive in the construction of houses constructed in the traditional technology . This difference from year to year more and more reduced. Growing environmental awareness among investors become increasingly popular to build houses in the technology backbone or prefabricated . Today arise technologies that allow to rise homes that meet energy efficiency standards significantly lower expenditures . As a result, energy-saving , more than a hundred-meter house you can bet inclusive 50 square meter flat in the city center .

On subsidies for loans may primarily benefit the buyer houses and flats from developers . Solutions related to energy efficiency , yes they are more expensive , but it does not mean that the end customer will automatically incur higher costs associated with the purchase of energy-efficient housing from the developer . The combination of efficiency , good design , innovative solutions enable developers to build cheap and warm energy-saving houses whose price does not have to exceed the standard cost of the property.

4 What are the biggest advantages in favor of the construction or purchase of house / flat energy-efficient or passive ?

Energy demand technology built house is significantly less energy efficient than the traditional home stawianego . That is much lower bills for heating and hot water .

70 % lower than the monthly cost of living lodgings ;
70 % lower energy costs ;
10 times lower heating bills .
Simultaneously, the house offers its residents a comfortable life - used in the ventilation system provides excellent interior microclimate regardless of weather conditions - with air filtration frees residents from all allergens and bacteria. Energy-efficient houses to save energy and use natural sources : the sun and the earth , without exploiting residues into the atmosphere - thanks are also environmentally friendly - their exploitation reduces CO2 emissions by about 3 tonnes per year.

5 How are reduced the costs of energy loss in homes energy efficient ?

The heat losses are reduced at the design stage . One of the most important elements is suitable thermal insulation of the building - essential windows, doors and exterior walls , roofs , floors , ceilings and floors on the ground . The more compact shape of the building , without a large number of dormers , bay windows and balconies including the execution phase easier and lower construction costs. Insulation and ventilation alone is not enough - to achieve the standard low-energy house or passive it is also appropriate orientation of the building relative to the world, the careful arrangement of the rooms in the facility and the appropriate window.

Also important is the material from which the house is made of, are increasingly used cellular concrete, silicate brick , technology backbone or prefabricated . Patented by our engineers, system houses climb the so-called expanded polystyrene . Neopor ® - in allows you to resignations of typical building materials - bricks and concrete and has excellent thermal performance .

Heat recovery units , solar collectors and heat pumps - the so-called . green energy sources energy-efficient homes allow residents consume about 70 percent . less energy than homes built in the traditional technology . A well-built house or flat energy reduces heat loss by many factors. For example, it can be reduced at the ventilation up to 90 %, for the insulation of heat bridges to 80%, or the thermal insulation of walls and roof to 40%. As you can see the benefits of operational savings are significant.
