Benefits of Ownership
Owning a highly energy efficient home means you are saving money, increasing the comfort of your home and protecting the environment.
- Energy cost savings – Monthly savings from reduced energy usage can help you free up cash for buying that new sofa or qualifying for a higher mortgage. In addition, higher quality equipment lasts longer and costs less to maintain over time.
- All-season comfort & indoor air quality – Tight construction, higher insulation levels and upgraded windows add up to a more comfortable home. You’ll also experience less noise, fewer drafts and hot/cold spots, less airborne dust, and reduced exposure to pollutants.
- Higher resale value – The upgrades found in a high energy efficient home result in years of lower utility bills, which can help boost the resale value of your home when it comes time to sell.
- Protecting the environment – These homes use less energy, helping to reduce the amount of air pollution created by household consumption. It’s a natural way to help the environment and one more reason to feel good about building a high energy efficient home.
