Saving money on utility bills is a driver for many prospective new home buyers. According to National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), home buyers are willing to pay an average of $9,292 up front to save $1,000 a year in utility cost (which is equivalent to a 9.29-year simple payback), up from $8,728 (8.73-year simple payback) in 2019. The median amount is $5,000 (five-year payback), which has remained stable since 2003. Call Dan Burdett 512-755-3899 and ask how the energy calculations can suit your build.
