Today’s Manufactured Homes are Highly Energy Efficient
When manufacturers make homes energy efficient, it affects many aspects of the building process. Consequently, the homes offer money savings and provide greater comfort and health to those who dwell therein. Here are some construction factors involved.
A house should be built in a manner that is conducive for keeping the heat out in the summer and the cold out in the winter. To achieve this goal, builders select the best quality products and materials that can be procured at a reasonable cost to erect the “envelope” of the home. Items that make up the envelope include insulation, windows, doors, and the air/vapor barrier.
Another aspect that is a part of energy efficiency is the mechanical system that heats and cools a home, as well as heats the water used in it. Some fuels are more desirable than others.
Home builders must also install ventilation that gets rid of moist indoor air, which can affect the health of the family. An example of equipment that addresses this concern is fans in the kitchen and bathrooms. Moreover, a whole-house ventilation system may be installed to facilitate the intake of fresh air and the elimination of stale air.
Aside from all the above, a range of extra touches can be used to make a home more energy efficient. Builders may recommend showerheads and faucets that conserve water, in addition to appliances with optimal energy-use ratings and certain kinds of lighting.
