Energy label application?
SENS Consult takes care of it!

At SENS Consult, we are happy to help you apply for an energy label for your home. Whether you want to sell, rent or preserve your home, an accurate assessment of your energy label by our certified Energy Performance Advisors (EP Advisors) will ensure that you meet all legal requirements.

What is an energy label?

An energy label provides insight into the energy performance of a home or building. The label ranges from A++++ (very energy efficient) to G (very energy inefficient) and is mandatory when selling or renting a home. An energy label helps potential buyers and tenants make an informed choice based on the energy efficiency of the home.

Benefits of applying for an energy label

At SENS Consult, we are happy to help you apply for an energy label for your home. The energy label indicates how energy efficient your home is, and it has several benefits. Below we list the most important benefits.

Understanding the energy efficiency of your home

Applying for an energy label gives you a better understanding of your home’s energy performance. The label indicates how economical your home is with respect to energy use, insulation, and heating. This allows you to discover what aspects of your home can be improved to save energy and costs.

Potential increase in the value of your home

A favorable energy label can increase the value of your home. Potential buyers or tenants increasingly value energy-efficient homes because it means lower energy costs and a more comfortable living environment. Therefore, by investing in energy-saving measures, you can not only save on your energy bill, but also increase the value of your home.

Contributing to a more sustainable future

By applying for an energy label and implementing energy-saving measures, you are contributing to a more sustainable future. An energy-efficient home uses less fossil fuels, reducing CO2 emissions. This helps combat climate change and preserve our planet for future generations.

Meeting legal obligations

In many countries, including the Netherlands, it is mandatory to have a valid energy label when selling, renting or delivering a home. By applying for an energy label on time, you will comply with the legal requirements and avoid fines that can amount to several thousand euros.

How long is an energy label valid?

An energy label is valid for 10 years. After this period, a new energy label must be requested, especially if in the meantime energy-saving measures have been taken that have improved the energy performance of the home or building.

How does a home inspection work?

Our advisor reviews your home in ± 30-60 minutes. What aspects are actually examined closely? There are several, but think mainly about:

For example, a terraced house from the 1970s, an apartment from the 1990s or a detached villa from 2005. The year of construction and type of home are important in determining energy performance because older homes are often less well insulated and lack energy-efficient technologies.

The size and layout of your home. A larger home often requires more energy for heating and cooling, while a more compact home is generally more energy efficient. The layout can also affect air circulation and thus the energy efficiency of the ventilation system.

There are several ways to insulate, for example, double glazing, cavity wall insulation, floor insulation and roof insulation. Good insulation reduces heat loss, thus helping to reduce heating energy demand. In addition, good insulation makes for a more comfortable indoor environment and fewer drafts.

Consider a high-efficiency boiler, heat pump or district heating. The type of heating system and its efficiency are important for energy consumption. Modern, energy-efficient systems provide lower energy consumption and a better energy label.

For example, natural ventilation or mechanical ventilation with heat recovery. A good ventilation system ensures a healthy indoor environment, and modern systems with heat recovery can also help save energy by reusing the heat from the exhaust air.

This could include air conditioning or passive cooling. An efficient cooling system can help reduce energy demand for cooling. Passive cooling techniques, such as shading or natural ventilation, are often more energy efficient than active systems such as air conditioning.

Is hot water moved with a boiler, solar water heater or heat pump? The type of hot water supply and its efficiency affect the home’s energy performance. Sustainable solutions, such as solar water heaters and heat pumps, can contribute to a better energy label.

For example, solar panels, solar collectors or a wind turbine. Renewable energy generation can reduce energy consumption from fossil fuels and contribute to a better energy label. In addition, local energy generation reduces dependence on external energy suppliers and can lower energy costs.

Examples include LED lighting, energy-saving bulbs or halogen bulbs. Energy-efficient lighting contributes to lower energy consumption and thus a better energy label. LED lighting, for example, is much more efficient than halogen or incandescent bulbs and lasts longer, so replacing lighting has a positive impact on the energy performance of your home.

Do you have a smart meter or traditional meter? A smart meter provides insight into energy consumption and can help raise awareness and save energy. In addition, a smart meter allows the energy advisor to more accurately chart consumption, providing a more realistic picture of the home’s energy performance.

Based on this, the energy consultant calculates the amount of energy needed for:

  • Heating;
  • Domestic hot water;
  • Ventilation;
  • Cooling of the home.

Based on these various factors, the energy label is determined and issued.
