What services do certified energy consultants offer?

Our energy efficiency experts will show you the way through the jungle of funding and support you in renovating your residential building's energy efficiency using coordinated measures. They are:


Analyze the current energy consumption of your building: You assess the current energy condition of your property. This includes the roof, your windows and doors, the heating system, the basement ceiling, exterior walls, and the facade


Advise you on suitable renovation measures: What options do you have to improve the energy efficiency of your building?


Find out about government funding programs: They will advise you on the offers from BAFA and KfW and help you choose the right funding.


Support you in applying for grants or promotional loans: They explain to you what evidence and documents you need for your application and accompany you through the application process - or take over the application for you.


Create energy certificates: If you want to sell or rent out your property, you need an energy certificate. Certified energy consultants will issue you the certificate.


Determine your energy-saving potential: How much energy can you save in your household through renovation?


Create an individual renovation roadmap (iSFP): Together with you, they will plan the step-by-step renovation of your property.


Support you in the energy-efficient new building: If you don't want to renovate but rather build a new building, our energy consultants will offer you competent construction support throughout the entire construction phase.


Advice before buying an energy-efficient house: Would you like to buy a newly completed efficiency house? Reputable energy consultants assess the property and its energy efficiency before purchase

Why is energy advice for residential and non-residential buildings worth it?

Not every renovation measure automatically leads to the desired result. If you plan incorrectly, you not only waste time but, in the worst case, also waste money on unsuccessful modernizations. But there is another way: If you perfectly coordinate the heating technology, building envelope, etc., you can drastically reduce your energy costs and avoid unnecessary improvements. At the same time, you make an important contribution to climate protection and increase the value of your property. 

In order to make the most of your savings potential and government funding, professional support is necessary
