5 Ways to Cut Your Electric Bill in Your New Manufactured Home

By Frank Weisser May 24, 2016

1.  2x6 Exterior Walls   2x6 wall thickness will give you an R-19 rating--up from the standard R-11.


2x6 exterior walls with thermal pane windows

2.  Thermal Pane Windows    Standard single pane windows let in a lot of heat in the summer and a lot of cold in the winter.  Thermal pane windows can reduce your heat gain or loss dramatically.


3.  Radiant Barrier Roof Decking   This product reflects heat before it gets into your attic.  Great for homes located in sunny areas.

4.  Extra Ceiling Insulation   An upgrade to R-30 ceiling insulation helps keep your living space comfortable year-round.

5.  Wood-burning Fireplace  For those of you who have access to cheap firewood, take a look at upgrading to a fireplace.  This feature also gives you peace of mind should the power go out in the winter.

With all of these options available, you can customize your home to make it as energy-efficient as possible.  Give me a call and we can discuss which options would work best for you.
