Today we see several shows and articles based around the concept of smaller is better for living an more economical way but what if we told you that you don't necessarily have to downsize to have a more energy efficient home?
Enercept homes, also known as (SIPs), Structural Insulated Panels, are highly efficient building panels that can be used in floors, walls and roofs. So what makes them energy efficient? Enercept homes are air tight, especially compared to stick build methods. If you live in a warmer climate, a moisture barrier is applied externally and if you live in a colder climate, one is applied internally. This moisture barrier adds an extra layer of protection to an already air tight house.
With an enercept home, you will be able to downgrade your HVAC system as the home will use far less enegery throughout the year. This is beneficial to those who live in extreme weather states.
Another economic benefit for the SIP home is the reduction in waste. SIP construction tends to use less waste as the window and door openings are cut in the factory.
If downsizing isn't in your future but you are interested in becoming more Eco-friendly, then consider your next house for Enercept construction.
