Renovating your home is an expensive and dirty process. You rip open walls, old materials replaced with new ones, you can even expect to replace and upgrade more aspects of your home. After the work begins, problems arise, and old wiring and pipes are discovered.
Home remodeling costs you thousands. It only makes sense that you do all you can to recoup some of those costs through energy upgrades.
Here we will discuss some of the many ways you can help reduce your energy bills after a remodel, saving you long-term cash!
f you are planning on renovating your roof or attic or even just upgrading walls in your home, one thing you need to remember is that heat rises. When the heat rises, this means your winter heating leaves your home right out of your attic.
Finally, perhaps the best reason to add energy savings plans to your home remodel is the plethora of government incentives! Most local gas and electric companies have rebates and tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements. Also, at the federal level, there are several home improvement tax credits, rebates, and other savings. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency website can help guide you with a handy map giving you money savings information by state! In addition, ENERGY STAR lists several options for federal tax credits and other savings for your remodel project.
