In today’s world, it’s no secret that energy efficiency is a growing priority for homeowners. Beyond the environmental benefits, energy-efficient homes offer a range of advantages that may impact your finances, well-being, and overall quality of life. Let’s explore why making your home energy efficient is a smart choice.
1. Saving Money
Energy-efficient products can decrease household energy consumption and save families money in the long term. Make small changes, such as installing a smart thermostat, attic insulation and LED light bulbs. Alternatively, replace inefficient windows with ENERGY STAR® certified windows to lower household energy bills by an average of 12%.
Alside offers ENERGY STAR® certified insulated glass packages that can help maintain a consistent indoor temperature, prevent heat loss during winter and keep your home cooler in the summer. The result? Reduced heating and cooling costs year-round, leaving more money in your pocket.
Familiarize yourself with the latest ENERGY STAR program updates and ensure your new windows and doors meet increased performance requirements. The ClimaTech PriME insulated glass package meets ENERGY STAR’s Most Efficient Criteria for tax credits and is available with Mezzo and Fairfield 80 Series windows and Promenade sliding patio doors.
2. Increased Resale Value
Investing in other energy-efficient upgrades such as insulated vinyl siding can contribute to the resale value of your home. Potential buyers will likely seek homes that are aesthetically pleasing and environmentally conscious. An energy-efficient home may attract more buyers and allow you to command a higher price in the real estate market.
3. Healthier Living
Energy-efficient homes provide a healthier living environment. For individuals with asthma or allergies, energy-efficient windows and doors can help improve air quality, which can lead to a reduction in asthma triggers and allergy symptoms.
The benefits of energy-efficient homes extend far beyond reduced energy bills. With Alside’s energy-efficient products, you’re investing wisely in your home and contributing to a cleaner environment and a more sustainable future.
