Energy bills are an important consideration when building a new home. Reducing energy use is also one of the easiest and most important ways to lessen a home’s environmental footprint.
Deltec homes can be substantially more energy efficient than conventional homes. Our homeowners confirm this consistently. They rave about their low utility bills—many say they are half the cost of their previous homes. Building an energy efficient home just makes sense, and one built with Deltec has several inherent energy efficient qualities.
A round home reduces the amount of heat lost by reducing the amount of surface area exposed to outside temperatures. According to the Cold Climate Housing Resource Center:
A round home is also more aerodynamic, allowing fewer drafts which can otherwise rob a home of precious heated or cooled air. Read more about the energy efficiency of a round home.
The same qualities that make a Deltec simple to build also help make it a very energy efficient home: precise window installations, tight-fitting wall panels, and floor and roof trusses that join together to form an exceptionally accurate structure help in reducing energy losses from air infiltration. We also offer many options to enhance your home's energy efficiency for those who are trying to achieve a higher level of energy savings.
Visit the green building section of our website for a more in-depth look at how we build energy efficiency into our homes.
“The seven windows in the living room all face south and in the winter admit the sun’s heat, which turns off the heater in the central part of the day. The generous overhang keeps the sun out during the summer—a very satisfactory arrangement. Each time the gas company sends out a bill, they include a chart comparing our consumption with their average customer. Always, our consumption is just half that of the average.”
