Energy renovation: one in five French people ready to carry out work

From the end of August, the rents of houses considered to be energy efficient will be frozen if the owners do not carry out the necessary repairs. But what budget should he plan?

According to a study by HomeServe (1), a company specializing in renovation and work on household appliances, “88% of French people are committed to living in sustainable and environmentally friendly houses”. However, if they are content with the desire to offer them the best accommodation, the budget to achieve this remains at the heart of their concern.

However, the government intends to accelerate the modernization of energy-efficient houses: from August 25, the rents of houses classified F or G in the Energy Performance Diagnosis (DPE) will be frozen and, from January 1, 2023, houses classified G it will be prohibited only for rental.

Allow between 400 and 600 euros per m²

To meet the new obligations, owners must budget for major activities (or take out a loan). Indeed, during international renovation projects, the amount can easily exceed 50,000 euros. In general, experts estimate the average cost of an energy renovation project between 400 and 600 euros per m². According to Pap.fr, to go from type G to C or B, the amount to be expected is 15,000 euros on average.

However, according to the study, the envelope allocated by the French for the maintenance and repair of their accommodation is 3,403 euros.

Assistance to be accompanied

If in fact, all French people are aware of the importance of reducing the energy consumption of their home, only a third (33%) has already installed insulation to improve energy consumption and 20% say they are ready. to spill

These results are partly explained by the conclusions of the survey: 6 out of 10 respondents want to find an environment-friendly accommodation, but do not know where to start. To solve this problem, the government has set up the SARE program (renewable energy support service) with the aim of helping the French to find their way and benefit from advice on the subject. There are also many financial aids, such as zero-emission loans or energy renewal loans from MaPrimeRénov’, accessible under conditions (entry, accommodation, type of work, etc.).
