Energy-Saving Features for Scottsdale Home Renovation
It is likely not all that surprising to hear that more and more homeowners are putting energy efficient upgrades at the top of their wish lists when outlining their renovation plans. But data released last month by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) still offers some interesting insights as to exactly how some homeowners are trying to go green while cutting down their utility bills.
One main takeaway from the data: contractors and homeowners are increasingly turning to technology to help make a home more energy efficient. The majority of remodeling contractors said they are using tools such as programmable thermostats and ceiling fans in homes as part of energy-saving renovations.
Going green is becoming more important to building professionals and their customers. The survey found that the number of remodelers who expect to be doing most of their projects from a green standpoint will double over the next five years.
As to how exactly homeowners are going green, the top choice is high-performing, low-emissive windows. Other popular options include Energy Star appliances and high-efficiency HVAC systems.
Incorporating these sorts of elements in a home remodeling project offers several benefits to homeowners. Obviously, it helps them save energy—which is good for the environment. It’s also good for the budget, as well, helping property owners keep their utility costs down. In addition, it can often help keep the home more comfortable and allow it to operate more efficiently.
