Benefits for Residential Property Owners
Lower utility bills and a more comfortable home are the big benefits of home energy efficiency. By combining proper equipment maintenance and upgrades with recommended insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings, you can reduce your energy use for heating and cooling and reduce environmental emissions. Wind mitigation improvements can provide a safer home and protect your loved ones and the contents of your home during a damaging wind event (e.g., hurricane). These improvements may also reduce the wind portion of your property insurance bill by up to 77%, depending on the age of your home and type of improvement.
