Sustainability is an increasingly important theme in the housing market. Sustainability is not only good for the environment, but also for your wallet. That is why we take 5 steps in a row on the way to your own sustainable home.
Step 1: Optimal Insulation
Without really good insulation, your home can never be completely future-proof. Double glazing and simple roof insulation are no longer sufficient. Go for triple glass, HR ++ and roof and floor insulation of at least 13 centimeters. Then you deal much more efficiently with the energy you use.
Step 2: connection to a heating network
Some cities have district heating that you can be connected to. This gives you hot water in a sustainable way. But you can also connect your home to a heating network in your own neighborhood. Then a large heat pump provides hot water.
Step 3: From Gas cooking to Induction
If we want to say goodbye to gas in our home, induction cooking is a good alternative. With this you switch from gas to electricity.
Step 4: Smart Grid for a Good Energy Balance
Generating electricity yourself is quite successful nowadays, especially through solar panels. And thanks to smart grids, we can also store the generated energy locally for later use. Although this form of storage is still in full development, you can already store power in the battery of an electric car. When you need the energy, you can then drain it again.
Step 5: The Costs of Sustainability
Making your home sustainable will yield money in the long term through energy savings. But it does require an investment to live in a more sustainable and natural gas-free way. The costs depend on your wishes and how well insulated your home is. The government also makes a contribution with, for example, energy savings loans and subsidies on heat pumps.
