And although people will save on the consumption of electricity or gas, but the actual construction cost of homeownership is much more expensive.
The fact is that within two or three years, Slovakia has to tighten the rules for the construction of new buildings on energy consumption for heating, because it must comply with the directive on energy efficiency, which approved the European Union. This document sets out the transitional period up to 2021-year. After that should be built only energetically superekonomichnye houses and apartments.

The official said the Technical University in Bratislava Ivan Hmurnogo directive requires minimizing the amount of energy needed for heating, lighting, water heating or air conditioning. As a result, this should reduce the consumption of electricity and gas, and thus the amount of harmful substances released into the atmosphere.

It indicates how much energy is consumed in the operation of the building. In accordance with this house is divided into seven groups.
