Previously, we analyzed the valid law in Spain regarding the energetic efficiency tag of properties, which must be applied to all country members of the EU. Now, we will analyze the characteristics of the energetic efficiency card of properties in Spain (size, colors, details, etc.) and the significance of each element included in it.

Energetic efficiency tag of properties in Spain.

According to the Spanish valid law regarding the residential properties inside buildings inside this territory, the energetic efficiency tag must count with the following:

  • The energetic efficiency tag must measure at least 190 mm wide and 270 mm high. When printed in a higher format, the tag must maintain the specific proportions.

  • The background must be white.

  • The rest of the colors used are CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black), which must be set like this: 00-70-X-00 (Cyan 0%, Magenta 70%, Yellow 100%, Black 0%).

  • All official languages of the Spanish State are accepted (there are several official languages in Spain).

  • An energetic efficiency tag, both for a property for sale as for a property for rent must fulfill all the requirements established by the law.

Particular cases for the use of the energetic certificate tag.

There is the possibility to reduce or enlarge the tag when including it on the advertisement for sale or rent of a building, only if we maintain the format and the established proportions and it should be easily readable.

In these cases, it is allowed to maintain the format and the proportions and showing only the scale and the values of the tag, as shown in this image:

The law accepts other exceptions, linked directly to the moment when the real estate advertises its properties for sale or rent through different media:

  • In the case of press advertisement it is allowed to mention the energetic qualification based on the consumption and emissions (the letter associated to them).

  • It is not necessary to mention it on the for sale or rent boards which are situated outside the buildings, on which the telephone number appears.

The scale of energetic qualification in Spain is different because there are two different scales: one for the buildings for living properties and one created for different purposes.
