Magnificently Built Modular Homes
Today everyone is concerned with their carbon footprint and going green. Home construction is no different. Home remodeling and new home construction are going green as well. Modular construction is considered green construction. If you are interested in building a new home with green construction methods, read on.
Modular construction includes green initiatives from the structural insulated panels, to the windows, to the home appliances, and the energy efficiency of the finished home. Modular homes use less energy and create less waste during construction. But they are also built to use less energy once built.
Structural insulated panes are used for the walls, ceilings and floors. This allows less heat in your home in the summer and less heat out of your home in the winter. This means that you use your Energy Star HVAC system less, cutting heating and cooling costs.
By creating less waste through the modular construction process, the construction process itself is more environmentally friendly. Weather and labor can result in materials waste, these are not factors in modular construction.
At Avalon Building Systems, our modular homes are built to meet “Energy Star Standards” and HERS requirements. There are many aspects of “building green”, and we can help you design in such a way that you can maximize your LEED points throughout the site design, building design, and construction decisions.
Green modular homes are typically more affordable for home buyers. For more information, contact Avalon Building Systems.
