Owning a home can be costly, especially when it comes to energy conservation and overall home maintenance. SipForm aim to reduce these costs – home owners can now opt for a more modern approach, with homes that are built using structural insulated panels (SIPS) to reduce the overall energy consumption.
With the size of our land mass, we experience some of the most extreme climatic variations in the world which leads to needing efficient and reliable home cooling and heating systems. The need for building smart, energy conserving houses that not only play a part in reducing overall home ownership costs but also reduced maintenance due to the use of high performance materials.
We’ve put together some reasons below why homeowners are moving towards modern high performance homes.
1. Increased efficiency
Times have drastically changed from the days of building basic timber or brick houses that lacked necessary efficiencies to reduce the cost of living. This is because, with the increased cost of power, homeowners are changing their preference to greener houses that can almost power themselves.
A house with structural insulated panels installed on the walls, floor, and the roof is likely to save a homeowner up to ten times the amount that would otherwise be incurred through cooling and temperature regulation. Additionally, modern kit homes increase efficiency by ensuring every appliances energy costs are significantly reduced to minimise household expenditure.
These efficiencies in energy conservation plays a large role in reducing overhead expenses associated with owning and running a home.
2. Sustainability and affordability
A prevailing trend common to most homes is the preference to construct using durable and environmentally friendly materials. Through with the use of long-lasting structural insulated panels, homeowners can rest assured costs of running their homes will be significantly reduced. Modern 21st-century homes offer more than just efficiency as they are designed to be more durable whether during both hot, cold or rainy season.
Further, modern homes are constructed with posterity in mind. This reduces the usage of environmentally dangerous products that would otherwise affect future generations either through gradual emissions or extreme energy consumption. As a result of this, most of us are opting to go green as it appears to be the cheaper and safer option.
3. Increased comfort throughout
All potential homeowners must consider the comfort of the home. Traditional homes are becoming less attractive, especially since the rise of smart homes that automatically control the home temperature to be both comfortable and energy-wise. Most homes are expensive to maintain due to their outdated designs that tend to increase costs while reducing user comfort.
Modern features such as solar/battery storage, energy recovery ventilation, waste water recycle systems and water storage tanks are pushing the limits of sustainable and eco living. From the basic arrangement of modern designs to the interconnection of the various technologies mentioned above, modern homes are no doubt the way to go in these trying economic times.
High-performance homes are slowly transforming into a necessity due to the high-level energy conservation. The reason for such preference is the effectiveness of the home in conserving energy and improving user comfort. Further, modern design allows for proper ventilation and heat conservation through the structural insulated panels. The panels are not only useful in regulating temperatures and conserving energy but are also sustainable due to their durable characteristics.
