Manufactured homes are one of the more affordable housing options for American citizens. However, they have also gotten the reputation of being energy inefficient and contributing to hefty utility bills. However, the fact is that any older and outdated home will cost more when it comes to energy consumption. 

To ensure that this does not happen to you, here are some tips to help ensure that your manufactured home is more energy efficient.

Update Your Roof

Your roof is one of the key structures that ensure your living spaces and all your assets remain safe and dry. However, it is also a key area where large amounts of exposure to the sun and other natural elements occur. Whether you’re worried about hot summers or cold winters, putting on a roof coating and extra insulation will help to reduce your air conditioning and heating costs. A roof coating helps to reflect sunlight and minimize the amount of heat that enters the home, whereas additional insulation will assist in trapping both the cooled and heated air to help maintain optimal temperatures inside.

Spend Some Time on Improving Your Insulation

Good insulation isn’t only needed in your roof. It’s just as important that your walls and crawl space have insulation that is updated and in good shape. Research has shown that by improving insulation underneath your flooring, you’re able to cut at least 11% of heat loss! and insulated walls can reduce heat loss by 13%.

If you’re thinking of taking the steps to improve your home’s insulation, it’s important to contact an expert so the job can be completed properly. For those with financial constraints, there are government issued or organizational energy grants that can help with reducing the amount you pay upfront.

Invest In Better Appliances

Whether it’s your dishwasher, dryer, refrigerator, or even lightbulbs, it is important that you’re choosing a modern option that has been certified by Energy Star. On top of being easier to repair, these appliances will use significantly less energy when compared to older appliances that don’t meet the strict guidelines. While you may pay more upfront for newer appliances, it’s important to see these purchases as investments as you’ll notice a savings on each month’s utility bill.

Go Solar

Another option for those who are looking to be more energy efficient is to consider generating your own clean and renewable electricity. For most manufactured homes, it is possible to install lightweight solar panel systems.
