Thinking about selling your home in the future? Many people don’t think of it, but it is wise to consider some home electric upgrades to boost resale value. The benefits go way beyond curb appeal!
By swapping out old appliances, you’ll increase efficiency to slash monthly electric bills. You’ll boost your mood by upgrading light fixtures and better utilizing natural light. At the same time, you can ensure that your home is safe and that everything is in good working order. You might like these upgrades so much that you will decide against moving after all!
Save with energy-efficient upgrades to your kitchen appliances.
Kitchen renovations have long been the solution for people wondering how to increase home value. Installing energy-efficient appliances may be expensive, but the energy savings they offer pay for any additional up-front costs. And don’t forget the visual appeal of new appliances: a new oven or refrigerator gives your kitchen a modern look that is certainly appealing!
Light up your space with smart and energy-efficient lighting.
Although often overlooked as a value-added feature, energy-efficient lighting can increase energy savings and by extension, home value. Home buyers appreciate LED light benefits and pay attention to little details in the house, including whether you’ve installed the best light switches and motion sensors.
You don’t need to replace every light fixture in the home: replacing the five most frequently used fixtures with ENERGY STAR–rated models could save you $75 a year on electricity and will be the fixtures most noticeable to potential buyers.
Invest in new windows to let in natural light and improve energy efficiency.
Retrofitting windows can transform a room by adding more natural light but choose which windows to replace with care as window replacement is expensive. Only replace windows if a room needs more light or if the existing window provides poor insulation. If you choose to replace windows, invest in the most energy-efficient windows possible to help offset installation costs.
