Benefits of energy-efficient manufactured homes
Older manufactured homes, especially those built before 1995, have less efficient windows, insulation and heating. Your navigator will help you receive financial assistance for a newly built manufactured home that provides:
- Great year-round comfort
- Lower monthly energy costs
- Healthier indoor air
What’s in an ENERGY STAR home?
ENERGY STAR certification requires specific built-in features that reduce energy use and increase comfort. Certified homes are far more efficient than homes built to code, which can save you hundreds of dollars a year on energy costs.
Better insulation: Increased levels of insulation in the ceiling, walls and floors help keep your home comfortable year-round.
Efficient windows: In an ENERGY STAR home, the windows have a lower U-factor, meaning they insulate better. More efficient windows are also resistant to condensation and moisture build-up, which helps prevent mold and mildew.
Building tightness: Cracks around windows and doors, and holes drilled for plumbing and electrical are well-sealed to prevent your conditioned air from escaping the home.
Go further with a NEEM+ home
NEEM+ is a manufactured home certification tier that goes beyond minimum code requirements. The upgraded thermal shell and added efficiency features of a manufactured home with NEEM+ certification can provide up to 30% more energy savings.
Upgraded thermal shell: Increased insulation, an even tighter envelope and better performing windows than ENERGY STAR standards provides greater comfort and reduces noise.
Energy-saving technology: Reduce your energy bill further with a smart, Wi-Fi connected thermostat and efficient LED lighting.
Third-party inspected: Durability measures such as house wrap and door/window flashing are verified in the production facility for correct installation.
Efficient appliances: Increased electricity and water savings with an ENERGY STAR certified dishwasher and refrigerator.
