Energy consumption

The energy bill in the low energy house is 400-670 euro per year including hot water. This results in annual savings of 1,740-2,000 Euro compared to a normal house. Furthermore, the family saves 3,350 Euro for not having to connect to district heating. Building this low energy house requires an investment of up to 13,400 Euro - which means a pay back time of 5- 6 years.


Insulation

The house is tightly insulated. Underneath the façade there is 390 mm of ROCKWOOL insulation; along the inner side of the foundations 75 mm of ROCKWOOL insulation has been put up in their full height to minimise thermal bridges between the foundations and the ground deck.


Technical solutions

An efficient heat pump converts the energy in the air outside into heat indoors and ventilates the entire house. Solar panels are also used to heat the water.
