Save On Your Energy Bills With a Modular Home

If you live in an older home, it can be difficult and expensive to keep your house comfortable throughout the year. Because older houses weren’t made with the benefit of modern materials, living in them can result in you paying more on your energy bills due to poor heat or cold retention. By choosing a modular home as your next dwelling, you’ll gain more than just a stylish house. You’ll be living in a home that provides the best energy savings possible. Read on to find out how a modular home from Yates Home Sales can dramatically cut down your energy spending.


Because the windows in modern modular homes are made with much more updated class compositions, they work much better than the windows in older homes. While old glass was not made with as much temperature retention in mind, current glass stands up to the test. Current glass is engineered to not only keep the temperature you want inside, but it’s also engineered to be reflective against UV radiation. That means that you won’t have to worry about the inside of your house getting hot in the summer, and you’ll have the added benefit of not having to worry about UV rays damaging your objects and furniture.


Modular homes are designed with doors that fit snug, ensuring that the right temperature is always maintained inside your home. With older houses, it’s easy for drafts to get in during the winter, meaning an increased cost for energy to compensate against the air getting in. Ensure that your doors keep your comfortable internal temperature from leaking.


Take the hassle out of managing internal temperatures yourself with a home that self regulates its temperature. While older homes often have heating systems that stay on at a constant temperature, a new modular home comes equipped with an updated thermostat that can keep your home comfortable while you’re there and save you energy by not heating or cooling your home when you aren’t.


If you live in an older home, you might not realize it, but your roof can be a source of temperature leaks. To avoid spending more to stay comfortable, modular homes implement a sheathing technology that prevents temperature from both escaping and entering without you knowing. That results in even more money you’ll have to spend on the things that matter.


If you’re thinking about moving from an older home, consider making the switch to a modular home. Making the move can help save you time and money in the long run when it comes to avoiding unnecessary energy costs. At Yates Home Sales, we implement the best homebuilding technologies and processes possible to ensure that your home is safe against wasted energy all year long. Each of our modular homes fully meets the Energy Star guidelines for energy use and in addition our roofs utilize LP® Techshield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing.
