Eco Friendly Modular Home Additions
As people become more conscious of the environment and the impact we have on it, eco-friendly modular home additions are becoming more and more popular. Here are a few reasons eco-friendly modular home additions are the next big thing:
- Because they are built in a factory and then assembled at the construction site, there is less waste overall. And a lot of the factories can recycle any leftover material. So this means the homes are built using the necessary materials and that’s it. No more, no less.
- Most eco-friendly modular home additions are energy efficient. So not only are fewer greenhouse gasses emitted from the home, but homeowners can also save a bundle on utility bills because these homes are easier to heat and keep cool. They have a smaller carbon footprint than their “stick built” counterparts.
- How are eco-friendly modular home additions more energy efficient? For one thing, generally the home’s insulation is more effective. The home’s “tightness” is also better. That means there are fewer cracks and open spaces in between the doors and walls or windows and walls. So there is less airflow coming in and out of the house. And this is how homeowners can save money on their heating and cooling bills! Modular homes are typically more airtight than stick-built homes. And to safeguard against indoor air pollutants building up, a top-of-the-line mechanical ventilation system can be installed that can ventilate your home but not drastically drive up the cost of your utilities.
