How to save energy?

In recent years, more and more attention has been paid and people are more and more informed about the causes of global warming, energy resources and renewable energy sources, energy consumption, the greenhouse effect, climate change and other current issues.

Saving energy is an important topic that needs to be taken into consideration. There are measures we can take even when the buildings we live in are not energy efficient. It is up to us to take measures in our daily lives that lead to a more efficient use of energy and to be more careful about our lifestyle.

We bring to your attention the following tips:

  • When choosing thermal insulation, use materials with maximum thickness and good thermal insulation performance. The thickness of the insulation material should be adapted to the climatic regions – this can lead to approximately 50% energy savings. The greater thickness of the material significantly improves the comfort of living, while not greatly increasing the costs incurred for the placement of the thermal insulation material.
  • The insulation of the facade allows the temperature to be maintained long-term at the desired levels and eliminates thermal bridges. External thermal insulation also protects the facade of the building, which is exposed to atmospheric influences, from wear. The installation of facade insulation acts as a shield.
  • Since the biggest heat losses are through the roof, you should start with its insulation. Installing thermal insulation on the roof is not only necessary protection from the cold and excess heating costs, but also protection from the summer heat.
  • The pipes of the heating system must be insulated with pipe insulation modules. This prevents losses on the heat transfer network.
  • When choosing a home, always be interested in whether adequate insulation has been installed.
  • Windows and doors are responsible for about 25% of heat loss. Sealing doors and windows or installing appropriate window frames will greatly reduce these losses.
  • Instead of opening doors and windows when the room temperature is too high, you can reduce the power level of the radiators. You can also install valves with a thermostat that stop the circulation of water in the radiators when a certain temperature is reached – this will protect the room from overheating.
  • Use energy-saving light bulbs and place a motion sensor in front of the front doors.
  • Check the energy efficiency class of the appliances you buy. Replace appliances with energy-saving ones.
