upgrades, energy efficiency, home sales, new construction

Real Estate Agent with Smart Green Realty

Penny Hull of Raleigh, NC recently wrote a post about how buyers these days are willing to go without some of the upgrades they had wanted in the past--like more sq footage and landscaping. However, one thing, she finds, is more important than ever: Upgrades that save you money every month on energy costs. That is great to see! One thing that kills me: HVAC manufacturers who still sell "cheaper" systems that are only 86% energy efficient, when for $500+ more, you can get 93% to 96% efficiency. Smart consumers realize that the higher efficiency system pays you back that premium quickly and then saves you money year after year.
