How Modular Homes Reduce Utility Costs

efficiency How Modular Homes Reduce Utility Costs

Compared to a conventional site-built home, modular homes can save you a lot of money each year on utility costs. Here’s how:

Modular homes are built for energy efficiency. Compared to conventional homes, they:

  • Have more insulation to prevent treated air from escaping and/or outside air from seeping in
  • Have smaller duct systems, which require smaller furnaces for safe heating
  • Are built in a climate-controlled environment, ensuring the highest quality construction

This translates to significant savings on your home heating and cooling costs. Conventional homes require furnaces or boilers that run 40,000-80,000 BTU. Modular homes’ heating systems, on the other hand, run as low as 10,000-15,000 BTU—up to 80% lower energy consumption! Less energy consumption isn’t just good for your home budget. It’s good for the environment, too!

If you notice you are continually turning up the thermostat to stay warm as the temperatures drop outside, consider investing in a modular home. Visit Fiesta Homes to learn more about the benefits of quality pre-fabricated homes.
