Sustainable solutions for your house
Investing in the future
Making your home more sustainable is a good investment in the future. With sustainable solutions you save energy and thus monthly costs. In addition, the value of the house increases.
Check your energy label
Every house has an energy label that indicates the energy consumption. It also lists sustainable solutions to make the house more energy efficient.
HuisAssist helps you find the right specialists to make your new house more sustainable. Read on to learn more about the different solutions.
Insulating is the first step in making your home more sustainable. Good insulation depends on the walls, floor, glass and roof. By insulating well you save a lot of energy and money.
Start with the roof
When improving insulation, it is important to start with the roof. Because warm air rises, a lot of heat is quickly lost in the roof. Therefore, when insulating, work from top to bottom.
Getting solar panels installed?
If you have solar panels installed together with your neighbors, you will save a lot of money. This is because the installation and travel costs are a large part of the total cost of installing solar panels. By dividing these costs among your neighbors, you will save a lot of money.
By solar panels you can easily save a lot of energy. The energy you generate is deducted from the energy you consume. This is called balancing. If you generate more energy than you use, this energy goes into the energy network. You receive a compensation for this per kWh.
The current compensation per kWh will probably be a little lower in 2023. So don’t wait any longer if you still want to gain maximum benefit.
Most energy suppliers lower the monthly costs if you install solar panels. If you generate more energy than you use, you can even earn money from your solar panels.
Solar panels pay for themselves
For 10 solar panels you pay about 4500 euro. You will earn this amount back in about 6 years. Installing less than 6 solar panels is relatively expensive, because the installation costs are very high.
There is no national subsidy in the Netherlands. However, there are municipalities that pay subsidies for solar panels. In addition, you may claim back 21% VAT on the purchase.
Poly- and Mono solar panels
There are two types of solar panels: poly and mono. Poly panels are blue and slightly cheaper than the mono panels. Mono panels are black and stand out a little less. In addition, they generally generate a little more energy.
There are also solar panels without a rim. This looks even better and also prevents accumulation of dirt against the frame. These panels do cost more money.
Is my roof suitable?
The angle of the roof is important for the energy yield. A roof with a 35-degree angle provides the highest yield. However, it is not so bad how much the yield decreases at a different angle. A flat roof of 20 degrees is still suitable for solar panels.
Solar panels facing south provide the highest yield. East and west is also profitable but north is often not recommended.
A heat pump heats your home in an environmentally friendly way for most of the year. Only when it is around zero degrees outside does the central heating boiler lend a hand. With the water pump, you use 50% less gas.
Costs and benefits
An air source heat pump gets its heat from the outside air. The cheapest pumps cost around 3500 euros. As with solar panels, it is possible to get a subsidy in certain municipalities. In addition, you will save about 250 euros annually on your energy bill.
Good insulation is important
A water pump only works in a well insulated house. Houses built after 1995 generally meet this requirement.
Electric charging station
If you have an electric car it is nice to be able to charge it close to home. You can only have a charging station installed on your own property.
