Tips For Building an Energy-Efficient Custom Home

Tips For Building an Energy-Efficient Custom Home

Making your home energy efficient is the most cost-effective strategy to saving energy.

Building green is a trend that is increasing rapidly throughout the country. A surplus number of custom homes are being built with materials and technology that help reduce the amount of energy consumed from homes, benefitting homeowners and the environment. Making your home energy efficient is the most cost-effective strategy to saving energy. Energy efficiency is a common thought considered in the building of most new homes. The smallest addition to your new home can significantly impact the environment, your community, and your savings. Below are a few additions that can make your new custom home more energy-efficient, reduce your monthly utility bills, and can ultimately increase the value of your home.

Adding Solar Panels

Solar panels cut the cost of powering, heating, and cooling for homes throughout the year. Although the initial price of having solar panels installed in your home is high, you make a return on your investment. Having solar panels can supplement your electricity usage, providing you with increased energy savings across the board.

Adding Energy Saving Appliances

Living in today’s era, where technology is increasingly advancing, it’s easier to live more efficiently. We can utilize appliances that can save water and electricity in our homes, such as smart thermostats, laundry machines, water heaters. Energy-efficient appliances are critical components in increasing the efficiency of your home, saving you money on energy costs, and protecting the environment. As a homeowner, investing in energy-efficient appliances is a must.

Proper Insulation

A properly insulated home goes a long way in reducing your energy needs. Insulation is a significant component in building your custom home to be energy efficient. Proper insulation prevents outside air and moisture from entering your home, regulating your home’s temperature ensuring that its heating and cooling systems work efficiently.
