What does energy efficiency mean for my expenses?

You're probably wondering this because you're about to move into an energy-efficient home. Terms like gas-free or zero on the meter are often mentioned as well. These terms can sometimes be confusing regarding costs. What do they actually mean?

When cooling or heating your home, little to no use is made of fossil fuels such as gas. Energy usage from such polluting sources is minimized. We provide energy, but your home is not connected to the existing gas distribution network. Instead, a separate central energy system has been installed. This system is located in the technical room, and energy is delivered to your home via the delivery set. For this, you pay fixed annual costs and variable costs for consumption.

These rates are determined by the Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). Energy-efficient means that it has minimal impact on the climate. "Efficient" does not refer to costs. The advantage is that you are fully prepared for the energy transition, and this energy does not contribute to global warming.
