When Renovating a Home for Flipping, Consider a Whole-House Green System

Real Estate Agent RS280067


If you’re looking to buy a home in Philadelphia with the goal of fixing it up and flipping it for a profit, then you’ll want to look at renovations that will provide you with the highest return on investment. Since more and more homebuyers are looking for homes with energy efficient features – both because they are more environmentally aware and because they want to save money on their utility bills – you should consider installing a whole-house green system.


A whole-house system is the best way to optimize the house for maximum energy efficiency. Basically, the entire house becomes an energy system that contains interdependent parts, all of which affect the entire system’s performance. Every whole-house system takes into account factors such as the number of occupants, the location of the house and the climate of the local area.


You will want to hire a designer in order to perform a computer simulation that compares different combinations of variables in order to find the most energy efficient as well as cost-effective way to integrate the system. These variables will include appliances, home electronics, the climate, the conditions of the site, the heating and cooling of the space, windows, doors, skylights, lighting, insulation and air sealing.


By creating a whole-house green system, you will increase the comfort of the occupants, reduce the amount of noise that travels through the house, a healthier indoor environment, reduced maintenance costs, reduced utility costs and improved durability of the home itself.


By implementing a whole-house green system in order to create a more comfortable, cost efficient and energy efficient home, you’ll receive a higher return on investment and attract more buyers when flipping the home.
