Buyers’ demand for sustainable homes in 2022 is becoming increasingly evident as the year progresses. At VAPF we know that it is very important for buildings to respect the environment, and to include systems which will maintain this respect in the long term.

As a result, we are working to ensure that our villas and apartments obtain the highest energy certification type A. But do you know what this classification means? We provide you with the details!

The energy certification scale

The Energy Efficiency Certification assigns different types of buildings with a label that indicates information on its Energy Consumption and CO2 Emissions. This information is classified on a scale that varies from Class A, which indicates maximum energy efficiency, to Class G which denotes less efficient buildings. You are sure to have seen the coloured label indicating these different efficiency levels.

A building that has energy qualification A means that it is has proper thermal insulation, correct led lighting, the house is well positioned, and efficient materials have been used in its construction. Furthermore, the use of efficient electrical appliances is relevant in these cases.

This certification evaluates different buildings regardless of their actual use. It simulates different conditions of operation which are the same in all cases.  This makes it easier to identify the level of energy efficiency of each building, without taking into account the use that the owners make of it.

Energy efficiency in VAPF homes

At VAPF we have been building villas and apartments on the Costa Blanca for the last 59 years. We are aware of buyers’ new requirements and also of environmental considerations, and that is why energy certification is important to us.

Many of our villas now have the highest certification A.  This is the case with Villa Tempo, in Altea, and Villa Llebeig and Villa Veleta, in Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. All these homes fulfil the highest standards in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This makes them a more pleasant and agreeable place to live in.
