Energy-efficient homes can benefit the homeowner as they are money in the bank. Not only do they lower utility costs, but also increase comfort levels and translate into higher property values. These are the top reasons to consider when determining what home repairs will add the greatest overall market value in remodeling and help your house to become more energy-efficient.
