Savings with the help of a quality facade
What would the savings on heating and cooling costs of up to 40% mean for your home budget? From month to month, the lack of a quality facade is the main cause of high costs for heating and cooling. According to the report of the Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia, owners of family houses spend the amount in the range from 543 EUR to 975 EUR per year for heating residential space of 100 m2. In average, that’s approximately 759 EUR per heating season or as much as 18.977 EUR for a period of 25 years. When cooling costs are added, the figures are even higher.
The data of the Ministry of Mining and Energy draw attention to the fact that more than 70% of houses in Serbia does not have high-quality, and most often any thermal insulation of the facade. Due to poor quality facade systems even 40% of energy for heating and cooling is wasted. It’s an approximate loss of 126 EUR per household per year, and Serbia has 2,487,880 households. When the thermal insulation is not of good quality, money “leaks through the walls”.
Safety outside, warmth inside
In order to avoid unpleasant experiences and situations, it is necessary to keep in mind that poor installation of the facade can produce numerous problems.
Improperly installed or poor-quality thermal insulation facade system can cause further damage to the owner of the building and produce insufficient cost savings in relation to the investment – which is a double loss. In the case of a poor-quality facade, problems such as unstable temperature and humidity in the house, condensation on the walls, mold in the corners, the appearance of cold bridges or a damaged appearance will not be solved.
Improperly installed thermal insulation facade system can hardly be repaired locally. In most cases, the complete installation must be completely repeated. Inadequate thermal insulation, without certified materials, is not subject to warranty, which excludes possible support from the manufacturer in the technical sense, as well as troubleshooting. So, a bad and incorrectly installed facade system can bring you more harm than good.
Therefore, for a pleasant stay in your house, quality thermal insulation is of the utmost importance. A well-insulated house is warm in winter, and protected from overheating in summer. No condensation and mold, and the manufacturer’s warranty lasts up to 25 years.
AII in one
A quality thermal insulation facade system saves you money and reduces bills by 10 to 40% per month. With it, the lifespan of your house becomes significantly longer, and the value of the property increases. The certified façade system is subject to the manufacturer’s guarantee, and a positive impact on the environment should be taken into account. First of all, the main advantage of quality facade systems lies in the fact that it is a solution without disadvantages.
If you own a family home, why waste your money unnecessarily if you don’t have to?
You will install the Bekatherm thermal insulation facade system once, and it will work for you in the long run to save on heating and cooling costs.
The absence of facade thermal insulation leads to unnecessary energy consumption and contributes to air pollution that we breathe every day. CO2 emissions are increasing, as is the consumption of limited natural resources.
So, high-quality thermal insulation also brings the positive impact on the environment.
THE QUESTION THAT COMES FROM ALL OF THIS IS WHAT IS A QUALITY FACADE SYSTEM? WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT? WHAT ARE ITS MAIN CHARACTERISTICS AND ADVANTAGES?
Quality that lasts for decades
A quality facade system is, above all, a system of a reputable manufacturer that meets all the requirements prescribed by the Rulebook on Energy Efficiency of Buildings .
