An energy label is also useful for the potential buyer and can be advantageous. Buyers nowadays look closely at what kind of energy label a house has. Energy labels run from energy label G, very inefficient, to label A+++. This is the most economical energy label currently available. A buyer naturally wants the highest possible energy label since he will then have a lower energy bill.

In addition, it is good for the buyer to have a well-insulated house and it is good for the environment to have a good energy label. This is because it means you emit less CO2, which has a positive effect compared to a low energy label. In general, a house with a high energy label sells faster than a house with a low energy label.
