EPCarlson have produced an informative graphic detailing the numerous benefits that can be attained by making energy efficient alterations to a property. The infographic details both the monetary and environmental benefits that can be enjoyed by the property owner.
There are a large number of different ways in which a property owner can improve the energy efficiency of their home and increase its worth and money saving ability. Often these money saving changes can also benefit Mother Nature in the long run.
These changes could be as small and simple/quick to implement as changing energy inefficient lighting in the property to LED bulbs. This simple change can incur significant savings, especially for owners of large property with a high number of lighting fixtures.
There are a number of larger changes that can be made to the home such as updating an inefficient boiler. Replacing a boiler that is only working at 60% of its potential can pay for itself in less than 8 years and keep the family warm throughout the harshest of winters.
One of the most significant actions that a property owner can undertake is the implementation of an Energy Performance Certificate. This EPC details the property’s energy inefficiency and suggests changes that can be made that will help the property owner reduce the energy bills in the long-term.
