If you have ever considered investing in an energy-efficient home, now is the time to put those thoughts into action. New homeowners are selecting more innovative and energy-efficient homes to invest in for numerous reasons, such as decreasing energy costs and reducing their carbon footprint. As a result, homebuilders are responding to the call by providing new construction homes for sale equipped with all the latest features and advancements to meet the needs of the current market. 

Here are a few reasons to invest in an energy-efficient home.

 

Saves You Money

 

The most significant incentive for purchasing an energy-efficient house is that it saves you more money! In 2014, the ENERGY STAR program saved consumers $31 billion on their energy bills. Now that’s a lot of savings! Features such as programmable thermostats, Low E windows, and water-efficient fixtures in your new home can save you hundreds of dollars each year on heating, cooling, and water usage alone.

 

Beneficial to the Environment

 

You can reduce your personal greenhouse gas emissions with the benefits of energy-efficient features in your home. Your home will use less carbon that is derived from plants when it is energy efficient. These homes provide safer air and water quality, reduce waste, and conserve and restore natural resources. Overall, it will make you feel better about contributing to the betterment of the environment when you invest in an efficient home. 

 

Improved Comfort

 

Have you ever lived in a home where one of the rooms seemed to always have a cold, wet draft during the wintertime due to poor insulation? Or maybe you’ve experienced an unusually high energy bill because of uneven temperatures in your home. One of the most important things to have in your new home is comfortability. Investing in an energy-efficient home allows for a more even temperature throughout no matter the time of year. Homes that are not efficient are more likely to have more drafts of cool air and humidity from insufficient insulation or drafty windows, which can be uncomfortable for everyone and result in an increased cost in repairs and energy usage. 

 

Increases Property Value

 

A 2019 survey by the National Association of Home Builders discovered that if a home reveals that it can reduce $1,000 in energy costs annually, the average home buyer would be willing to pay an additional $8,728 for it. Today’s real estate market has seen an increase in eco-conscious homebuyers who would be more eager to purchase a home that is proven to decrease their carbon footprint and align with a green lifestyle.
