Beyond savings: Hidden benefits of energy efficiency

by | Sep 1, 2023 | Finance and Business, Home and Living

When it comes to home upgrades, energy efficiency is often linked to saving money and helping the environment. But there are many more advantages to improving home energy efficiency. Here are a few:

Enhanced comfort
Energy efficiency has a great perk – it boosts the comfort of your home. With energy-efficient upgrades like insulation, new windows and doors, and air sealing, your space can stay at a comfortable temperature all year round. Say goodbye to drafts, toasty areas or chilly corners. You can enjoy a cozy and inviting atmosphere in every room, no matter the season.

Improved indoor air quality
Another great thing about energy-efficient choices is the positive impact they have on indoor air quality. When you upgrade to energy-efficient appliances and HVAC systems, you get advanced filtration and ventilation systems too. They can help remove allergens and pollutants that like to linger in the air. The result? Fresher, cleaner air inside your home. So not only are you saving energy, but you’re also promoting healthier indoor air quality.

Boost your home’s resale value
In today’s real estate market, buyers are actively looking for homes that are already energy efficient, and they’re willing to pay a little extra for those green features. So, if you’ve got energy-efficient windows, doors, a heat pump and other features in place, you’re instantly making your home more appealing and valuable.

Energy-efficient home upgrades go beyond saving the environment and saving on your utility bills. If you’re not sure where to start, consider signing up for a home energy assessment. You’ll receive a custom report with recommended upgrades for your home and see which rebates you can qualify for through the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus program.
