Energy Efficient Measures Boost House Prices

Energy efficient measures and  improvements to your property could increase its value by 14 per cent on average – and up to 38 per cent in some parts of England – new research released today by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) reveals.

Improving Energy Efficient Measures

For an average home in the country, improving its EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) from band G to E, or from band D to B, could mean adding more than £16,000 to the sale price of the property. In the North East, improved energy efficiency from band G to E could increase this value by over £25,000 and the average home in the North West could see £23,000 added to its value.   The report, which took into account over 300,000 property sales in England between 1995 and 2011, is the most comprehensive research in this area to date. It indicates that energy efficiency is now a key factor influencing the sale price of most residential dwellings in England. Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:   “We have long known the benefits of making energy saving improvements to the home, but this study is real evidence of the huge potential rewards. Not only can energy efficient improvements help protect you against rising energy prices, but they can also add real value to your property. This Coalition is committed to helping hardworking families with the cost of living. The Green Deal is designed to do exactly that.”
