The saved 3600 litres of oil for heating would correspond to more than £2,500 per year. If Mr.Smith were to save the same amount of CO2 by using his bike instead of his car, he would need to pedal some 70,000 km per year – or 1 1⁄2 times around the globe. Luckily, not all buildings are from 1970. But even an average EU building could each year save nearly 5 tonnes of CO2.
A building normally lasts 50-100 years or more. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to make build- ings as energy-efficient as possible from the beginning. The energy prices have risen dramati- cally in the past years and probably will never go back to the low price level that the world has got used to.
By choosing a low energy building or by improv- ing an existing building energy-wise, building owners can keep their energy costs under control and become less vulnerable to future fluctuations in energy prices.
For the home owner, insulation is not only one of the most effective ways to save CO2. It demands no change of daily routines, but actually increases the quality of life.You can save upto 11 tonnes of CO2 per year if you renovate a very poorly insulat- ed 150 m2 house from 1970 to low-energy stand- ards, installing better insulation, good windows and other energy efficiency measures.
