There are a lot of ways to add value to a house, but did you know that installing LED lighting can achieve this too? According to Consumer Reports, adding LED lighting into your house can increase a home’s value by up to 3 percent! There are several reasons for this.
Consumer Reports suggests that LED lighting can have such a huge increase in a home’s value because of its durability and low energy consumption. Most LED lighting lasts on average up to 17 years and it’s estimated that there will be a saving of up to £600 per light fitting if it is replaced with LED. That’s because LED use 80% less energy than traditional lighting. This will of course be a huge positive for someone looking to move to a new home and will give them peace of mind that they will not have to start replacing electrics for many years.
This report also outlines a need to introduce Smart systems to homes. It states that ‘smart features have broad appeal with millennials who grew up on smartphones, so they’re used to being able to control things at their fingertips’. They estimate that such buyers will pay 3 to 5 percent more for a home with the right amenities.
