Why Does Energy Efficiency Affect a Home’s Resale Price?

Energy efficiency is one of the real estate factors that continues to positively affect home resale prices. There is a national trend toward energy efficient and sustainable living that is quickly gaining momentum across the country. More and more homeowners want to control and lower their monthly energy bills, reduce reliance on traditional utilities and decrease their carbon footprint. One of the highest impact ways to accomplish all of these goals is installing high-efficiency HVAC systems.

Heating, cooling and hot water bills combined can represent over 70% of a home’s annual operating cost. By upgrading traditional HVAC systems to those powered by ENERGY STAR geothermal heat pumps, homeowners can reduce HVAC-related energy bills up to 80% because geothermal HVAC systems are 400% energy efficient compared 98% efficiency of the highest efficiency gas furnace systems available.  This investment also makes the house more marketable when it comes time to sell it, resulting in increased property valuation, faster sale and higher home resale price.
