Timberframe homes are energy efficient — July 17, 2009
Timberframe homes provide many advantages which is why so many people opt to build timberframe homes. They are well known as being energy efficient, but you can increase their energy efficiency even further by adding a few extra features.
Energy efficient windows:
The wrong choice in doors and windows can have a serious effect on the energy efficiency of your home. But as well as keeping in the heat, energy efficient windows can help to keep outside noise out. The result is that you will be spending less on your energy bills and you will also be able to relax and enjoy your timberframe home in perfect peace and quiet.
Energy recovery ventilator:
Along with energy efficient timberframe, it is also recommended that you install an energy recovery ventilation system. The energy recovery ventilation system will greatly help to improve the air quality and to maintain a constant humidity level in your home. The energy recovery ventilator will help to control the relative indoor humidity in any type of climate.
During the colder seasons, it can minimise the additional moisture that the incoming airflow might contain. An energy recovery ventilator constantly replaces old stale air with fresh outdoor air. In this way, you are ensuring that your timberframe home stays fresh and ventilated.
