7 Benefits of the Whole House Approach You and your family will:Enjoy a healthier, safer homeBe more comfortableLower your energy costsHelp the environmentIncrease the resale value of your homeFor every dollar you save on your annual energy bill, the market value of your home increases by up to $25FromA recent study published in The Appraisal Journal shows that the market value of a home increases by $10 - $25 for every $1 decrease in annual fuel bills. The study confirms what many have believed for years: Energy efficiency substantially increases the market value of owner-occupied homes.The study was conducted by ICF Consulting with funding from the Environmental Protection Agency. It involved extensive statistical analysis of American Housing Survey data collected by the Department of Housing and Urban Development between 1991 and The research was based on detailed interviews (including a review of energy bills) that are conducted every other year at a sample of over 16,000 housing units all across the nation. Even taking many other correlated home features into account, the study confirmed energy efficiency improvements do result in higher home values:"With after-tax interest rates between 4% -10% and stable fuel price expectations, home buyers should pay $10 – $25 more for every dollar reduction in annual fuel bills resulting from energy efficiency“
