As a manufacturer of custom, engineered wood homes, energy efficiency is at the top of our "Most Important" list, as it most likely is for you as well. Today, we're talking about why energy efficiency is important in today's world of home building - more than ever.
Why is energy efficiency important, in general?
The answer to this question is simple, but important:
"When we use less energy, the less energy we need to generate at power plants, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and improves the quality of our air. Energy efficiency helps the economy, too, by saving consumers and businesses millions of dollars in energy costs." - energy.gov
Why build an energy efficient home?
When you consider constructing an energy efficient home, you're investing in 2 things: Saving money and maximizing comfort. In addition, you're securing a stronger resale value, and overall, simply doing the right thing.
Once we move in, what can you do to continue an energy efficient lifestyle?
- Purchase energy efficient appliances
- Heating and Cooling
Regardless of the style or size of your Timber Block home, R-30 wall insulation is standard. Not long ago, we incorporated an R-36 wall, as we worked as hard as we could to stay ahead of the rest. This upgrade is an option, and will allow our homeowners the highest level of comfort and an even further savings on energy bills.
On top of a highly insulated wall, our patented system results in a tight thermal envelope...add that to an R-30/R-36 insulated wall and you have a home that is highly energy efficient, saving you plenty of money immediately.
Timber Block homes are constructed faster and easier, which means less waste, more financial savings, and families are able to enjoy their new dream home that much faster.
