Living an Energy Efficient Life with American Life Homes

Whether it is a wish to live a greener, more Eco-friendly lifestyle, or a desire to cut heating and cooling costs, many homeowners are looking for homes that are energy efficient. American Life Homes believes in building homes that have a positive impact on the environment and our homeowner’s pocketbook. From the smallest detail to built-in benefits like spray foam insulation we’ve got you covered. Let’s explore some of the ways American Life Homes creates the perfect living environment:

THE BIG STUFF

Drafts around doors and windows can waste a tremendous amount of energy but these exterior air leaks are not the sole problem; even small gaps around switches and electrical outlets can lead to energy-consuming air leaks. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that roughly 20 percent of the energy used to heat or cool the average home literally creeps out the doors or windows [Energy Star]. Older homes with poor insulation, gaps under the doors or old, ill-fitting windows, can cause energy costs to skyrocket.

Engineered from the ground up, utilizing best-in-class energy saving materials & practices, including spray foam insulation, American Life Homes take all the worry out of the equation. The sealing qualities of the insulation in your EnergyWise home significantly reduce air leaks – increasing your overall comfort and saving you money.
Additional Benefits of Proper Sealing of your Home:

  • For individuals with sensitivity to dust, pollen, or other allergens, dramatically improves indoor air quality.
  • Air sealing can also protect structural elements from damage—especially in high humidity areas
  • Stabilize indoor humidity
