When you own a home, utility bills really add up… unless you’ve taken steps to improve energy efficiency, that is.
If you’re selling a home in Grand Junction or the surrounding communities, you also need to know that buyers love energy efficiency.
But what can you do, realistically, that will make your home more energy-efficient?
3 Ways to Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
If you’re ready to boost your home’s energy efficiency so you can sell it more quickly (and at a better price), these ideas might help you along.
Check Your Exterior Doors
Look at doors’ energy performance ratings, and if you find one that’s a great deal, it may be worth snapping up. While you’re at it, check all the weather stripping around your doors; you’ll save money when drafts can’t come in or out.
Good Exterior Paint
The color of your home does matter when it comes to absorbing heat, but that doesn’t mean you have to opt for a dark house because our winters get a bit… frigid. Instead, invest in quality exterior paint that helps shield your home from exterior conditions.
Carpet can trap heat and keep your home warmer, as can rugs, but what’s more important is sustainability. Bamboo and cork make excellent (and energy efficient) flooring materials, and buyers seem to love them.
