Energy Efficient Home Building
One of the biggest advantages of building a new home is the ability to take advantage of the latest in energy efficient home building design and practices. Energy efficient homes save money on utility bills, and offer homeowners increased comfort. In fact, many of our clients are surprised to find that even with a larger home, their utility and maintenance bills are much smaller.
Energy efficient homes feature:
- A tightly sealed thermal envelope, which includes the walls, roof, windows, insulation – anything that protects the inside from out.
- Controlled ventilation to account for the tight seal of the thermal envelop while allowing proper ventilation and fresh air exchange.
- Properly sized, high efficiency heating and cooling systems that provide comfort without operating in a wasteful manner.
- Energy efficient windows, doors, appliances and lighting throughout.
Energy efficient home designs also take into consideration environmental and climate factors, which vary by location. For instance, a window that traps the sun’s rays is great up north where the climate is cooler, but wouldn’t work so well in a more southern climate.
As an Energy Star building partner, Hibbs Homes stays up to date with high efficiency building and home design practices for the St. Louis area. Our clients can always be assured that we incorporate the most efficiency into every home we build.
