FIRST-TIME HOME BUYERS NEED HOME ENERGY TRANSPARENCY

You’re dreaming about buying your first home and there’s a lot to think about. And most of that thinking comes down to money. Will you have enough? What's it really like to keep up with payments? What can you afford? Home energy labelling is all about knowing what it will cost to heat, cool and power a home before you actually to buy it. This makes sense, right? How else are you supposed to make a smart decision about which house to buy? You’d never sign a mortgage without knowing exactly what the monthly payments will be. You'd never buy a house without knowing what the taxes are. So why should energy costs be a mystery?
