Energy Efficient San Clemente Condos & Homes are All the Rage

Homeowners love to save money, especially once the monthly mortgage payment bills start coming in the mail. One of the best ways to save money on your San Clemente condo or home is, surprisingly enough, to spend money on it. Making your San Clemente condo or home energy efficient can lead to sizable savings in the long run, and adding energy efficient features do not have to break the bank. While features such as solar paneling on your roof or a tankless water heater may cost a pretty penny, things like proper window and door seals or LED light bulbs are on the cheaper side and can really make a big difference.

Save Money with Energy-Efficient Additions to Your Condo or Home

“Green” technology has been a huge talking point in politics and the media for almost a decade now, and one of the primary areas where going green can pay big dividends is with your condor or home in San Clemente. Energy-efficient additions to your home add resale value and will save you money on utilities and future maintenance stemming from inefficient home features. Like we said above, you don’t have to break the bank to make your condo or home more efficient. Making sure the seals throughout your home are sound will allow you to spend less energy on heating and cooling the home as temperatures are more locked in with better home insulation. Energy-efficient light bulbs last 3-4 times longer than ordinary light bulbs and use less wattage, so your energy bill will decrease, as will your light bulb shopping bill.

Big-ticket upgrades like solar roof panels are much more expensive (average cost is around $14,000 for a standard single family home); when you factor in the savings enjoyed from lower utility costs, a more comfortable living environment where you don’t have to run the A/C or heater all day and night, and the value these improvements will add to your San Clemente condo or home, the results more than justify the costs. The old adage goes that you have to spend money to make money; spend some cash on making your San Clemente condo or home more energy efficient, and you will eventually see sizable rewards.
