Improving a home's efficiency can boost its resale value

A wisely planned renovation can provide significant efficiencies in an older home and make a substantial reduction in your monthly household operational costs.

Finding opportunities to cut your energy bills is an important step in renovation planning. Improving your home’s energy efficiency not only saves you money, it can also be the key to increasing the comfort of your home. And by using less energy, you will help protect our environment by producing less harmful greenhouse gases.

Ensuring your home is energy efficient also increases its resale value. If it comes down to a choice between your home and another resale home, you’ll be the winner when the homebuyer compares heating costs.

The most cost-effective approach to energy efficiency will depend on the age and condition of your home. The best starting point is to have a licensed home energy adviser perform a detailed assessment of your home’s energy performance
