Door and window frames
Installing new door and window frames is definitely not a low-cost option, but latest systems do offer optimal insulation for protection against challenging weather conditions, helping keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. The cost of such an investment essentially offers long-term benefits as a result of your home’s increased energy efficiency, resulting in reduced use of air conditioning and heating systems.
Solar water heating
If living in Greece, you can benefit from the country’s sunny weather most days of the year by using solar water heating, a system rightly established as a key tool in virtually every home, ensuring hot water supply without the need to consume electricity.
Automatic watering system
Installing an automatic watering system in your garden or balcony saves many cubic meters of water, crucial for the planet as well as your budget.
Fifty percent of building heat loss happens through walls, especially ceilings. It’s important that roofs or rooftops are well insulated. This will offer protection from rain and moisture and will make it properly slanted for rain water to flow to and for thermal protection.
Ready for an eco-friendly home
If you’ve decided to transform your home into an eco-friendly home with building adjustments needed to boost its energy efficiency, NBG can be your ally.
NBG, a strong supporter of eco-friendly initiatives, participates in the country’s official subsidy program Exoikonomo 2021, aiding energy efficiency upgrades of homes. It provides financing for energy-efficiency project budgets of successful applicants, covering energy inspection costs, loan file management costs and much more.
If you’re building or renovating your home, adopting an eco-friendly approach for various project decisions has become standard practice in this day and age, both for the environment and long-term benefits for your finances. Eco-friendly choices may cost more initially, but they definitely offer savings in the long run. Your home’s energy-related expenses will be considerably lower compared to those of conventional homes.
Make sure to choose energy-efficient models when buying appliances such as washing machines, dish washers, refrigerators, TVs, stoves, or air conditioners. Modern household appliances have energy labels indicating energy efficiency levels. Give preference to models with maximum energy efficiency rating.
The energy efficiency rating is a scale that consists of letters (from A to F), stating the amount of energy that an appliance consumes. An energy efficiency rating A means the appliance is more efficient and consumes less energy than F.
An eco-friendly home not only saves you significant amounts in energy-related costs such as heating or hot water expenses, but also greatly contributes to environmental protection. Ecological awareness is essential. Today’s global climate reality is setting new, crucial environmental rules and standards for everyday life, transportation, your car and, naturally, your home.
