How do we do it?
Forty percent (40%) of a home’s energy can escape the home through gaps, cracks and leaks in the structure. The spray foam insulation used in our Energywise® homes, seals these leaks and gaps, providing comprehensive air sealing. Coupled with high performance doors and windows, our homes are virtually free of air leaks and drafts.
Energywise® energy efficient homes by American Life Homes save on overall energy use, reducing the greenhouse gases making your home a more environmentally-friendly option.
In addition to being an eco-friendly living space, our total energy efficient homes provide:
YEAR ROUND COMFORT
Energywise® homes enjoy a balanced, stable indoor temperature. Utilizing the latest Smart thermostat technologies, your home will learn what temperatures you prefer and keep your rooms comfortable year-round.
Allergens and other pollutants are reduced by more than 50% by sealing gaps and cracks in the home.
Homes are less humid. Lower humidity levels means your home is less likely to develop mold, mildew and our Energywise homes can eliminate dust mites.
Lower the noise level. Homes with Energywise® engineering and spray foam insulation enjoy the benefits of a quieter home.
