If you’re searching for a new home in the St. Louis area, consider that innovative design, advanced construction methods and digital technology bring savings advantages over resale homes. A newly built house by Rolwes Companyfeatures a host of energy-saving aspects that can result in significantly lower monthly utility bills.
Make It a Smart Winter
With the cold weather approaching, you can stay cozy without having to budget for large seasonal spikes in gas and electricity use. Investing in a new home means that state-of-the-art floor plans, framing techniques, insulation methods, appliances and fixtures allow you to avoid the higher costs that come with living in an older residence. As you consistently save money over time, you will be able to see (and enjoy) firsthand the value of complete home energy efficiency.
A Comprehensive Strategy
From initial blueprints to the final coat of paint, Rolwes Companybuilds homes with energy efficiency in mind. Their open floor plans help conserve energy by directing conditioned air into one central location rather than generating the unnecessary voltage to heat or cool several smaller spaces.
During the construction phase both framing methods and insulation make a long-term difference in energy efficiency. Modern framing methods are used to reduce thermal bridging – which occurs when warm interior air escapes to the outside.
Because most older homes don’t lack proper insulation and often have significant air leaks, insulation regulations have improved across the country. Today’s home builders meet stricter insulation standards that offset heating and cooling costs. Rolwes’ in-depth insulation protocol ensures that your new home is thoroughly sealed upon completion of each phase of construction.
Warm Up to Buying New
Higher levels of energy efficiency and added savings are achieved with the use of multi-pane windows and airtight doors. Single pane windows that are often found in older homes have been replaced over time by installation of windows with multiple panes of glass that reflect warmth inward along with tightly sealed doors that eliminate heat loss.
Because household appliances account for nearly 11% of energy usage in an average house, conserving energy with everyday use can be key to lowering utility bills. In a new home, energy efficient appliances not only help save cost, they also keep your home running smoothly. Rolwes Company homeowners benefit from energy efficient modern appliances including high efficiency washers and dryers, furnaces, fans, dishwashers, air conditioners and hot water heaters.
Get Tech Savvy
New home construction incorporates some of the latest developments in digital innovation. As a new homeowner, your energy efficiency protocol can be enhanced through LED lighting fixtures for mercury-free bulb longevity and smart thermostats. These temperature sensors can be programmed to assess each area individually, and then instruct your heating system to target only the rooms in use. As soon as this coming winter, you will finally stop spending on warming up empty rooms.
