Energy Efficiency “Highly Important”

A recent survey by the National Association of Realtors indicates that 71 percent of those households polled consider energy efficiency “highly important,” but only 35 percent actually felt their homes were energy efficient.

Somewhat surprisingly, this gap between importance and satisfaction was larger than other more “traditional” concerns such as safe neighborhoods, affordability, updated kitchens, and available storage space. One possible reason is that spending on household utilities has risen significantly more that overall consumer spending.
