3 Benefits to an Energy-Efficient Home

Energy-Efficient Modular HomeMaking more eco-friendly decisions has almost become a trend in the last few years, but it’s a bandwagon we at Yates Home Sales are happy to support. Keeping energy efficiency in mind is more than a trend, however. It’s an incredibly important aspect of home building, one that secures a more sustainable future for you and the planet as a whole. Working with a green builder to ensure your home is energy efficient is a win-win: you and your family save money and get better performance out of your home while saving energy that benefits everyone. As an Energy Star-certified energy-efficient modular home builder, Yates Home Sales has helped homeowners throughout North Carolina and Virginia create their perfect home with all the eco-friendly perks for years. One of the best parts of our job is helping home buyers save money. There’s nothing like getting to tell home buyers that they really can pay less to have more when they choose an energy-efficient modular home, and it starts with the way we build our homes.

The Perks of an Energy-Efficient Modular Home

So what does having an energy-efficient modular home mean? There are several benefits, but here are the top three:

  • You’ll save money. That’s right. Energy conservation means money conservation. How often do you get an all-around perk like that? At Yates, we go the extra mile to make sure our modular homes are built fully sealed and well insulated, saving you hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling your home.
  • It’s good for the planet. It’s no secret that using high amounts of energy results in a decrease of natural resources and an increase in pollution do to harmful emissions. The good news is that the US uses 56% less energy today than if we didn’t have energy-efficient technologies and policies. When we cut down on unnecessary energy use, we do our part to help preserve the planet for all.
  • Your home will be more comfortable. When weather turns to one extreme or the other, being inside your home doesn’t feel like much of an escape if your house isn’t properly sealed. In the boiling hot summer months, the house gets stuffy, but you don’t want to continue cranking up the AC and running up your bill. The same goes for when cold air slips in and chills your house. In an energy-efficient home, you can be perfectly comfortable all year round without having to alter your heating and cooling so much you run up your energy bill.

At Yates Homes, we construct all of our modular homes to the energy efficiency standards set by our certifier, Energy Star. We also have an independent, third-party testing company that verifies that each of our new modular homes meet or exceed the Energy Star guidelines before they’re awarded an Energy Star seal. Our home buyers who utilize Duke Energy can also qualify for a small discount on their power bills because of their home’s Energy Star rating. In addition, we also use LP® TechShield® radiant-barrier sheathing, which is installed on the inside of the roof surface in the attic to lower attic temperatures and reduce cooling bills in the summer.

See? Win-win. So what are you waiting for? If you’re interested in saving on your next home by going modular and becoming more energy efficient, contact us today to find out more about how Yates Home Sales can make your eco-friendly dream home a reality!

Five Star rating across the board!

We have had a wonderful experience (start to finish) with everyone at Yates. I sent an e-mail earlier in the week letting all know how much we really appreciated everyone. I think we met or spoke with most of you staff and everyone was more than helpful with any questions we had.

Your folks definitely make this painless (for us anyways) as possible and we are truly grateful.

Five star rating across the board!

"I love my new home!"

I love my new home! I have received so many compliments. One couple in particular wanted to come by and see how we customized the outside. They also wanted a 2 story house and couldn’t visualize how it would look. They asked us about our experience with the home process. This couple is now purchasing a new home from Yates!

My home is “comfortable” and I got the kitchen I was dreaming of! Thank all of you at Yates Home Sales!

"...expertise and professionalism..."

We would like to thank Yates Home Sales for their expertise and professionalism with our new home. Our sales representative was very knowledgeable of her job and she knew what we wanted for our first home. We had toured many modular dealers but, my heart kept leading me back to Yates. The staff that built our home and the workers that put it together was on point with everything. We were never left with unanswered questions. Their tour homes is well kept and beautifully decorated inside so you as a customer can actually see yourself living in one of the modulars. That’s when my husband and I decided that Yates Homes was the place to go to have our home built.

So thanks to the staff at Yates for a job well done and a special thanks to our sales representative Lydia Gibson.

"We are very pleased..."

We are very pleased with our beautiful Yates home. The staff was very helpful and patient as we planned our custom built modular home. Since we had recently lost our first home to a fire we needed to move quickly to rebuild and move back on our land. Yates worked very hard to have our family in our new home as quickly as possible.

"...we highly recommend them..."

My wife is a nurse and I handle warranty claims for one of the largest companies in Southside Virginia. We both work in fields where we know how important customer service is and should be. We don’t mind one bit telling anyone about our experience with Yates Home Sales. In fact, we highly recommend them to anyone that asks about our home. If you are in the market for a new home, go by and meet Lydia, Scott, C.R. and everyone else at Yates Home Sales. Then go look around at other places. If a top notch home, honesty and customer service are what you are looking for, I’m willing to bet that you end up right back where you started.

"My family and I are so pleased..."

My family and I are so pleased with our new home from Yates, I cannot say enough about the quick and courteous service we have received! The entire process of buying our home was made easy by the excellent staff at Yates and the service after the purchase has been great! We had one small problem with our plumbing after we moved in and the service staff from Yates was on it and had it repaired very quickly with absolutely NO FUSS. In times when good products and service seem to be getting hard to find, Yates Homes stands out as a great local company! I would recommend Yates Homes to anyone who is in the market for a well-built modular home – sold by people who care about the customers they serve!
