Energy efficient home improvements can:

- Earn you thousands of dollars in government and utility grants

- Provide opportunities to access great, low interest financing

- Save you hundreds of dollars in annual energy bills

- Increase your home resale value by an average of $20 for every $1 savings in annual energy costs

Energy efficient home improvements can reduce chills and drafts, mould problems, and even decrease outside noise.
