Learn More About Energy Improvements And RetrofittingThe vast majority of homes in the United States were built during an era of inexpensive energy supplies. Despite several energy shortages since the 1970s which triggered a wave of residential energy conservation, most homes are still operating far below their potential for energy efficiency. In addition, building codes and standard construction practices have not kept pace with state-of-the-art energy technologies. This means that nearly every home, including recently built ones, have numerous opportunities to save energy and money. Residential energy conservation offers the advantage of being a risk-free investment with a guaranteed return, and the return goes up as energy prices rise. Energy related home improvements can also increase the value of your home equity.
