Energy efficiency now trumps luxury

A new study shows homebuyers put a premium on energy-efficient features.

What tops home buyers' wish lists today? Pools? Home theaters? Actually, it's energy-efficient home systems, reports Jenn Goodman in Builder. "The recently released annual Energy Pulse study from Shelton Group suggests that consumers in the market for a new home prioritize energy-efficient features over luxury items," she writes. "Eighty-five percent said they’d pay more for an Energy Star–certified home, and their preferences for individual features bore that out: more people wanted Energy Star appliances in their new homes (52%) than wanted a pool (42%), a state-of-the-art sound system (40%), or a home theater room (29%)." Beyond making your homes more marketable, energy-efficient propane appliances can make you and your customers eligible for rebates and incentives. Check out our incentives page to learn more.
