Why know your energy label?

An energy label indicates how energy-efficient your home is, ranked from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Knowing this can help you make informed decisions about potential improvements, energy savings, and even the resale value of your property.

Where to find your energy label

You can search for your home’s energy label through your national or local government's dedicated public databases or websites. For example, in the Netherlands, homeowners can use the EP-online platform, while other countries may have similar online resources where you can enter your address or register details to retrieve the label.

Understanding your energy label results

Once you find your energy label, it's important to understand what it implies. A label showing 'A' signifies excellent energy efficiency, likely indicating modern heating systems, good insulation, and possibly renewable energy sources. Conversely, a 'G' label might suggest there is significant room for improvement in terms of energy conservation.

The value of an accessible energy label

Having easy access to search and understand your home’s energy label is invaluable. It empowers you to take control of your energy usage, aligns with global sustainability goals, and can significantly impact your financial outlays on energy.

Common questions about searching for energy labels

Is it free to search for my home's energy label?

Yes, searching for your home's energy label is typically free through government websites or platforms designated for public access to such information. Check out the website EP-Online to see the most up to date energy labels.

How often should I check my energy label?

It’s a good practice to check your energy label whenever considering home improvements or before buying a new property. Also, after any major renovations, it might be necessary to reassess the energy label.

What if my home doesn’t have an energy label listed?

If your home does not have an energy label listed, you may need to contact a certified energy assessor to conduct an evaluation and register a new label, ensuring compliance with local regulations and benefiting from a potentially higher property value.
