We have tried to gather the most asked questions to our EstiaTech teams in order of frequency.
What is the price per m2 of an EstiaTech House?
This is by far the most asked question to our EstiaTech team. And it is at the same time the most difficult to answer question. Why?
For us, before calculating a price, need us a precise definition of your project. Let us make a comparison: If you go to a car dealership and you ask him: "how much is your car?"
He will have to answer you: "which one? What series? Which engine? What pack? What color? …"
Based on your requests, the price of the car can go from simple to double. It is exactly the same for an EstiaTech construction. To give you a firm and final price, we need to identify your project. That is why we ask you to describe your project as accurately as possible before they can give you an answer on the price. You can go to the "your project" page and complete the form.
We understand that need you a price to compare us to our competitors. The again, find it us very difficult to answer because we use high quality materials, thermal resistance far exceeds the demands of legislation RT2012, resistance to fire (REI30) two times greater than the legislation, of the noise insulation to name a few…
In order better to compare ourselves, see our page "Technique". Then compare us a competitors.
What is the value of a home EstiaTech?
We believe that one must approach this issue rather in the sense of:
"what is the loss of value of my house".
We are in 2015 and subjected to thermal regulation of 2012, the RT2012. These are homes that consume an average 50kWh of primary energy per m2 per year. Today, we know already that to satisfy the future RT2020 our homes will have to produce more energy than they consume. There are more than 5 years.
So why even build a home RT2012? With the increase in the price of energy, these houses will lose much of their value.
Unlike a House EstiaTech, which today is able to satisfy the future RT2020. You can by adding our modules independence, at any time, become not only a producer of energy, but also autonomous water and therefore no longer have energy and water costs.
Which of these two types of House will keep its value in the future? You decide.
Can you explain to me the difference between a house "self-sufficient", "autonomous", "passive", "positive energy" and "sustainable"?
In short, we build a passive house (which has more need of heating) and sustainable (which optimizes the use of energy and water resources) to then with our independence EstiaTech modules make a House autonomous or self-sufficient in electricity and water.
These words are explained in our 'Glossary' of the EstiaTech words.
What is the life span of an EstiaTech House?
AXA guarantees our homes 10 years by ten-year warranty, as for all the houses in France. In Germany, our homes are guaranteed for 30 years.
There are houses in Alsace, built in frame wood which have now 200 years.
