Residential: Saving money with clean Energy

The interest for “green homes” – that allow home owners saving on heating and electricity bills – is increasing in the latest years.

Solar panels provide hot water during the winter and supply electricity to air-conditioning systems during the summer.

There are a lot of groundbreaking eco-friendly technologies that can promote an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Houses can be equipped with solar panels, water butts, high-standard insulated boards, double-glazed doors and windows, pellet stoves and biomass boilers.

Experts say that “green houses” will be sold faster than usual properties in the future, as energy efficiency is becoming increasingly desirable for home buyers.

Energy-efficient homes allow reducing the expenses involved in running a house while cutting down the emissions of carbon dioxide. The potential reduction of running costs influences the decisions of home buyers and of clients looking for a home for rent.

Green homes are also easier to let. Tenants are attracted by insulation, double-glazing and systems of water conservation.

Having an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) may represent a value-added feature and increase the appeal of a house.

Green home experts stress the importance of improving the energy-efficiency of houses, as saving energy would also mean respecting the environment and saving money.

In many countries – such as in the UK – the government provides financial aids to make energy-saving improvements to homes and install renewable energy sources.
