Manufactured Homes Save Energy, Says HUD

Posted by: admin | Posted on: April 28th, 2011 | 0 Comments

Today, thousands of Americans are tuned into what Washington has to say about energy saving practices. When the federal government gets behind an energy saving concept, people pay attention – and for the past several years, government agencies have promoted the benefits of saving energy with manufactured homes.

Energy Efficient Manufactured HomesIn fact, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released a comprehensive guide to “Manufactured Homes: Saving Money by Saving Energy” in 2005. The tips, techniques, and information contained therein on improving heating and cooling system performance, improving lighting efficiency, and insulating walls, floors and ceilings – not to mention reducing solar heat – are just as applicable today as they were six years ago.

However, it’s worth noting that with the significant advancements in manufactured home fabrication and energy efficiency that have occurred since then, there are even more great benefits to choosing manufactured homes. For example, today’s solar grids can be more effective (even when you choose a DIY solar grid), and the manufactured home builders of today (like Hallmark Southwest!) have far more energy tools at their disposal. We can incorporate Energy Star® appliances, low-flush toilets, and advanced insulation. In short, there are even more reasons to consider energy efficient manufactured homes today.

We recommend downloading the HUD report “Manufactured Homes: Saving Money by Saving Energy.” Then, we suggest you contact Hallmark Southwest to inquire about your energy efficient manufactured home options.
