You may have considered solar for your home or business for reasons such as lowering energy costs and protecting the environment. Solar panels can also be a part of your investment and improvements for your home or business, increasing the value of your property at time of sale. Studies by the U.S. Department of Energy have proven that solar can increase the value of your home, indicating that for a standard 6-kilowatt (kW) solar PV system can add up to $24,000 to home resale value. Isn’t that great?!
Energy conscious homeowners are also now realizing the value of energy efficient windows, insulation, roofing and other home improvements to lower energy costs associated with heating and cooling their home, which of course adds to resale value should you look to sell at a later date. And of course, this doesn’t even touch tax rebates that you may be entitled to.
Almost half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling, so ensuring that your HVAC system is up to date and running efficiently is also critical. If you’re HVAC system is older than ten years, it’s a great time to have a home improvement contract like CA Home Solar evaluate your current equipment to see if you could benefit from ENERGY STAR or other efficient appliances.
Home improvements are no longer about mere aesthetics, the larger beauty of these types of home improvements is the short term and long term financial return that property owners can receive from these types of investments.
