Old house for sale? First, an audit of the cost-efficient renovation potential


Prof.dr. Johan Albrecht writes about the necessity of complete renovations of old Belgian houses in a cost-efficient and ambitious climate policy. The increase of the comfort without a fall in energy use is the result of a lack of information to the purchase of an old house. Obligating an audit before selling a residence makes the information available for potential buyers and is consistent with the European Directive on the energy performance of buildings.
