Energy efficiency is an important feature in Highlands NC homes. A recent study showed that energy efficiency tops the list for home owners. Energy efficiency means lower utility bills as well as a small carbon footprint and if you are designing a new home or remodeling a home in Highlands NC consider adding energy efficient to your list of needs.
Easy improvements to homes in Highlands include sealing doors and windows, if not replacing them. The more air tight windows and doors are the less heat that can escape, thereby making your home run more efficiently in the winter with the added benefit of lower heating costs. Other relatively easy improvements include purchasing new energy star rated appliances and replacing light bulbs to CFL or LED bulbs. Of course building a home from scratch means that you can implement a myriad of energy efficient items.
