Prepare for the Future with a High-Efficiency Home Build or Retrofit
If you’re thinking about building a new home or renovating your existing one, there are many decisions to be made. One of the largest considerations is whether to make the investment in building with efficiency in mind or simply settling for the minimum or baseline standard.
Why Do High-Efficiency Home Standards Matter?
While it might be less expensive to build just up to code, the additional investment for a high-efficiency home is worthwhile. Just a few of the benefits of building a high-efficiency new home or retrofitting your existing home with energy efficiency standards at the forefront, include:
Improved comfort levels
Improved indoor air quality for home health
Higher resale value
Reduced carbon emissions for decreased environmental impact
