Energy Efficient Custom Homes In DFW
At DFW Custom Home, we make it a priority to always stay on the cutting edge of energy efficient design and construction. Therefore, all of our custom homes come standard with Spray Foam Insulation and Smart Thermostats.
What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray Foam Insulation helps create a more efficient seal than traditional forms of insulation. Spray Foam is sprayed into open cavities, attics, crawl spaces, and joists. One of the best things about spray foam is that it never loses its shape, while the leading alternative can. Spray Foam Insulation works to decrease the amount of air infiltration that occurs by creating an air-tight, seal.
What is a Smart Thermostat?
Smart thermostats are used with Smart Home systems and control a home's air conditioning and heating system, that can be controlled from your computer or smart phone. They perform similar functions to a regular thermostat as they allow the user to control the temperature of their home throughout the day using a schedule, but also contain features, such as sensors, WiFi connectivity, and learning capabilities that improve upon the issues with programmable thermostats and help substantially reduce home energy usage.
Why it matters to you!
“Air leakage can account for as much as 40% of the energy cost to heat and cool your home,” according to the Department of Energy. Spray Foam Insulation combined with Smart Thermostats can help to protect your home against air leakage and inefficient HVAC systems, which in turn, can help decrease your annual energy bill by nearly $1,000 to $2,000 annually.
