When it comes to new homes, one of the greatest benefits boils down to the ability for home builders to make use of modern advancements in order to create a home that’s as beautiful as it is efficient. Older homes tend to falter in this regard. That lower upfront cost may seem appealing at first but, as time goes on, the older home will become more costly. And we’re not only talking about maintenance. Odds are you’ve noticed how cold rooms can get if the windows are drafty. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it’s also not efficient at all! If you run your heater for hours, that heat will only escape through the leaks in the windows, barely warming up the home’s interior. This is why it’s best to consider Energy Star certified custom homes from Winton Homes, today!
1) Consistent Indoor Temperatures, No Matter How Hot or Cold it May Be Outside
Your home should be your retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world. You should be able to come home after a long day to unwind. But when your home is freezing cold because of leaks and drafts, you’ll feel more uncomfortable at home than you would’ve if you were outside. Our homes come with comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high-performance windows and doors in order to minimize warm and cold spots. Not only are these drafts uncomfortable, but they can also result in higher utility bills. When your doors and windows are properly sealed and your walls are properly insulated, you won’t have to worry about uncomfortable indoor temperatures ever again!
2) More Durable Water Management System Throughout The Home
Energy Star certified homes come standard with a comprehensive water management system which includes flashing, moisture barriers, and heavy-duty membranes. These systems protect roofs, walls, and foundations from disastrous moisture damage.
3) Improved Indoor Air Quality
Our homes include a fresh-air system which, along with high-performance filters, improves indoor air quality and reduces dust, pollen, and other allergens. Not only will your home’s interior be comfortable throughout, but it’ll also be healthier than you could ever imagine!
