Benefits of Energy Efficiency
Energy efficient construction continues to evolve, and even new home builders do not always use the most energy efficient materials and techniques. Remodeling a home for energy efficiency offers several benefits.
Cooling and heating homes in the Memphis and Germantown area is a major expense for homeowners. Even a modest reduction in energy costs over time can add up to real savings.
Here are a few energy efficient strategies that can save homeowners money:
- Installing ENERGY STAR® rated low-e windows can reduce energy costs by up to 33%
- Upgrading attic insulation and sealing house air leaks can lower costs another 8% to 20%
- Replacing your roof with an ENERGY STAR “Cool Roof” can reduce the cooling demand by 10% to 15%, lowering overall energy costs.
Historically, energy efficient homes have a higher resale value. Studies show that for every dollar that utility bills are reduced per year, homeowners gain a $25 increase in their property value.
An energy efficient home is a more livable home. After all, that’s the point of any remodel. By keeping your home affordably cool in the summer and comfortably warm in the winter, an energy efficient remodel enhances your home’s indoor environment.
Increasingly, homeowners are concerned about their impact on the environment. Remodeling to take advantage of energy efficient materials and techniques increases a home’s overall environmental friendliness by consuming less energy.
