MORE HOME FOR LESS MONEY!
** According to the National Association of Appraisers, studies of resale prices of homes over the past 15 years have
allowed them to attach an increased value to effcient homes. The value is calculated by taking one year's energy savings
(as certified by a state licensed energy rater, part of the national program) and multiplying the savings by $ 20.73.
Please also check with your insurance carrier for discounts on engineered, disaster resistant, healthy buildings.
