When it comes to finding energy upgrades for the home, there are many choices available to homeowners, but the industry leader is ENERGY STAR®. These products get this special designation by following tight guidelines that were created by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The reason ENERGY STAR products are so popular is that the little bit of extra money spent on these higher quality products is more than compensated in reduced energy bills and increased home value. Here is how this line of products make energy upgrades for the home simple and easy!


Increase Home Value

By creating an energy-efficient home, you can increase the value of your home and at times by quite a bit.  While studies vary, data suggests in increase of 2-9% in home sales price with an ENERGY STAR certification. According to ENERGY STAR, certified buildings are more attractive because they:

  •  Have lower operating costs
  •  Are more marketable
  •  Contribute fewer greenhouse gas emissions to the environment
  •  Command higher rental rates
  •  Have increased asset value

If you are looking for energy upgrades for the home these are some of the great ways to get started:

Upgrade Insulation. According to Energy.govheating and cooling account for about 48% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes.” Improving the insulation in your home with quality, approved, energy-efficient insulation is one of the best ways you can improve the energy efficiency of your home.


Windows. If your home is 10-15 years old, it is likely time for new windows. Poorly sealed windows, damaged window systems, and uninsulated windows can account for one-third of a home’s total energy loss. There are many types of windows and styles to choose from so finding energy-efficient windows for your home should be a piece of cake.  Check out MI Windows for some great options.


Appliances. ENERGY STAR appliances are one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to make energy upgrades for the home work. From washers and dryers to refrigerators and TVs, there are many appliances that bear the Energy Star seal of approval. Using these in your home is a great way to conserve energy and increase the value of your home!
