According to real estate professionals, for every $1 reduction in energy usage, on average it increases the value of the home around $20. For instance, if you reduce your energy bills by $500 annually, your home’s value increases as much as $10,000! (Please keep in mind this is just an average and actual increases in value are influenced by a number of factors including current market conditions.)
Furthermore, energy improvements increase comfort levels within your home year round. This can also help reduce other energy costs. For example, during the winter, if your home previously had cold spots, you may have put on sweaters and extra clothes to stay warm, increasing the amount of dirty clothing you had to launder, which meant you were using more energy.
