Do homeowners truly value energy efficiency?
A new study says that homeowners often prioritize more aesthetically focused improvements.
EcoBuilding Pulse breaks down the annual Energy Pulse study from the Shelton Group, which found that most homeowners said "energy efficiency would have somewhat to very much of an impact on their selection between two homes." Yet when given money for a hypothetical remodel, homeowners prioritized kitchen and bath remodels. But perhaps the misalignment isn't as great as it seems: Window replacement and HVAC or furnace replacement were the No. 2 and No. 3 priorities.
