From your annual fuel consumption for heating (fuel oil, natural gas, propane gas, wood, wood-pellets and electricity) and the total of your house’s heated living surface, EcoHouse calculates the specific heating energy consumption of your house or apartment in KWh per square metre per year. EcoHouse also considers whether your heating system is used for sanitary hot water preparation or not. This allows a classification of your house or apartment in fuel efficiency classes from A+ (very good) to H (bad). As a result, you may estimate how economical your heating habits are, and/or how efficiently isolated your house is.
