Along with that for home sellers green homes features will add to the selling power of a home compared to a standard home. According to studies green homes will sell for more money and will sell up to 1/3 fewer days than standard homes.

The return or payback on the added cost of the green investments can be anywhere from under a year up to ten years but then the return on investment (ROI) can far outperforms CDs, saving accounts and sometimes even the stock market. For example installing a new high efficiency, variable speed, furnace/boiler will cost an average of $1,145 above that of a standard boiler/furnace but will give you about $300 of annual savings with a payback in 3.8 years and over 20 years a savings of $6,000.(3)
