Seeing the Value in Home Energy Efficiency Improvements

By Brian Zeidner, Director of Member Services

If I'm going to invest time, effort or money into something, I usually want to know how I am going to benefit from my investment.

Somethings are easy to determine.  Upgrading to a vehicle that gets better gas mileage will save on gas money.  Buying bulk paper towels at a discounted price saves grocery money.  But how do my wife and I calculate the potential savings when considering energy improvements to our home?

I recently identified some areas of our home where I suspected problems.  I felt I was losing heat in the winter because of attic areas that had ventilation problems and were not well insulated.  I assumed that I needed to make improvements, but I really didn't know if it would be cost effective to commit the resources requried to make those improvements.
