Manor Homes’ planning and building process allows us to produce homes that work for you any time of the year. We build our modular homes in a factory setting, and are therefore not delayed by weather like traditional builders. We can build you an energy efficient home to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter via two key ways, clever design and key features.
Energy efficient by design
We will inspect your property and note the orientation of your block. This is to understand how your future home will be affected by the sun, wind and shade. The right design will ensure living areas and an alfresco are light filled, whilst theatre rooms and pantries are in the shade.
Windows can also be placed in particular rooms to capitalise on morning and afternoon sunshine in the winter. Simply add shades to keep the house cooler in the summer.
The wind can also be used to an advantage, with a clothes line placed in an optimum spot for drying clothes, for example.
Key features in the home can also contribute to energy efficiency. Double glazed windows and insulation in the walls and roof will keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Our quality builds also means your house will be draught proof with no gaps around doors and windows, walls and floors. If you invest in LED lights, your house will also be more energy efficient. Of course, using natural light to your advantage with windows and glass doors means you can use your lighting even less.
Manor Homes works with you to help you get the most out of your home. We know that an energy efficient home is not only better for the environment, but it is better for your comfort and your hip pocket as well.
It is worth spending the time designing an energy efficient home from the start, so you can reap the benefits in the future, and we’d be happy to help! We can make any recommendations and work with you to plan every aspect of your home so that you are getting the most from your site, your home and your energy.
