The program primarily serves to finance sustainable renovations of family homes. It covers up to half of the costs associated with achieving energy savings in the home. This includes the implementation of optimal insulation, but also, for example, the installation of photovoltaics or the use of rainwater. Reconstruction can thus represent a way to evaluate your finances or secure your own quality housing.
“Older houses often have high operating costs, which make them unattractive for heirs or potential buyers, or even unsuitable for long-term use. At the same time, reconstruction can very significantly affect both the comfort of living and the future value of the property,” explains Petr Magda, managing director of Wienerbergeg, adding that if the home owner invests in increasing the energy efficiency of the building, he will consume only a minimum of energy in the future, which will enable him to reduce living costs and use the funds differently.
