Whether you currently own a home, or you are renting your current residence, you know just how costly the monthly expenses for utilities (electric, natural gas, fuel oil, etc.) have become. In many cases, the cost of monthly energy usage is approaching one’s mortgage or rent payments.
Dream Home Outlet understands just how important this significant expense has become in our customers’ budgets. We are invested in making sure your new manufactured, modular or mobile home is as well insulated, thermally protected and as energy efficient as possible.
Our customized manufactured homes are designed to conserve energy (and reduce associated utility costs) while insuring you have maximum year-round indoor environmental comfort.
Our homes are professionally engineered to meet and/or exceed the specific climate zone requirements for the State of Alabama (as identified by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development). Every Dream Home Outlet design is thoroughly assessed, examined and tested to insure it meets or exceeds all pertinent efficiency codes before being anchored to your foundation.
We use the finest building materials available to insure this tight, integrated and secure thermal envelope for your new home. Some of our primary thermal suppliers are these well-known brand names: Weyerhaeuser, Georgia Pacific, GAF Materials, ICI Material Advantage and of course, Owens-Corning.
Beyond the energy efficient and cozy thermal envelope, Dream Home Outlet also utilizes a number of optional enhancements to further increase your new home’s energy efficiency such as Energy Star® rated appliances and high efficiency heating and cooling systems. As we help you select, customize and finalize the plans on a new manufactured, modular and mobile home that is exactly right for you, together we can determine your best choices in this monetarily important energy efficiency arena.
Here are a couple of examples:
Whirlpool Corporation is an industry leader in developing high-performance appliances that help conserve the earth’s resources and allow homeowners to use energy and utility resources more efficiently.
Whirlpool continually strives to create new and innovative products that consume less energy and water by improving their manufacturing processes and using materials that minimize harsh impacts on the planet.
Today’s air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment.
High SEER models are generally more expensive, but can easily make up the difference by reducing your home energy bills over the long run.
