It’s summer! You know what that means – time to crank up the air conditioning. That also means a higher electricity bill. Increased usage of air conditioning is the most common cause for the summer electricity bill price hike. As the difference between the temperature inside and outside grows, the amount of electricity your AC uses to maintain the temperature also increases. However, with a few home renovations, not only can you reduce your electricity bill, but you will also increase your home’s resale price.

Metal Roofs 

Metal roofs can save you up to 40% in cooling costs, which is about $1200 a year considering that the average yearly energy bill is $3000. The way metal roof reduces your cooling costs is through its natural reflective nature, and its ability to insulate. Regardless of color, many modern metal roofs are considered highly energy efficient. The money-saving accolades increase with lighter colored roofs because they are better at reflecting heat waves back into the atmosphere which keeps it from being absorbed into your home. A lighter colored metal roof can be about 50 to 60 degrees cooler than its traditional roofing counterpart.

On average, homeowner recoups about 86% of what they spent on their metal roof. Metal Roofs also increase a home’s resale value from 1 to 6 percent, depending on the region.

Energy Efficient Windows

25 to 30 percent of residential cooling and heating costs escape through windows. According to the Department of Energy, switching to energy efficient windows can save you between $126 to $465 a year. In warmer states, homeowners see an average savings of $250, while homeowners in colder states see an average savings of $150. Aside from reducing bills, energy efficient windows are also efficient in reducing sound. Most homeowners state that about 70% of noise pollution is muted.

Installing energy efficient windows can increase your home’s asking price by about $8,500.
