Older homes have a tendency to cost more to heat and cool, and are often not energy-efficient. Newly built homes are designed to be much more energy conscious, and new heating and air systems are far more efficient than older models. Once you factor in the energy efficiency of newer appliances, and you could see dramatic savings on your monthly bills.
