Manufactured homeowners face unique challenges, from cooling and heating to maintenance and rental agreements. In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, many businesses across the United States faced closures, reduced operations, and increased sick leave. People are also subject to quarantines and ordered to isolate themselves from the general public. These factors have greatly impacted the supply of consumer goods which has led to panic within the community. Here is how COVID-19 affects manufactured home sites.

Changes in Energy Consumption And Emissions

COVID-19 has led to lockdowns across the globe and that has affected various sectors including manufactured homes. One industry that has felt these effects is the energy industry. The pandemic has affected both the production and consumption of energy and we have witnessed a decrease in energy consumption for the very first time ever since the great depression. One of the many reasons is due to the closure of many offices and factories. This is despite the domestic energy consumption in manufactured homes increasing as more people work from home. This group of people has seen their utilities increase and subsequently, their rent.

Energy-Saving Options in Manufactured Homes

As a resident in a manufactured home community, you can try the following energy-saving options to help cut down on your monthly utility bills:

  • Install energy-efficient windows and doors
  • Install insulated skirting
  • Add insulation into the belly
  • Add insulation to walls
  • Perform general repairs and maintenance
  • Install a belly wrap
  • Add insulation onto the roof and install roof caps

Working from A Manufactured Home

The workforce has faced a significant change due to the COVID-19 situation. More workers are required to work from home to reduce social interaction to a bare minimum. This has redefined the value placed on the supply chain industry as well as different workforce members. Some workers may have also been laid off due to the closure of various businesses due to financial losses. For employees who need to work from their single-wide manufactured home, they can set aside a designated space in the living room to cater to office functions. Homeowners of double-wide or triple-wide manufactured home units have the option of setting aside one room as their office space and this trend is set to continue even further into the future.

Future Design of Manufactured Homes

People used to hang out at the community parks to socialize with their neighbors but due to lockdown restrictions, people mostly stay at home. In the future, perhaps manufactured home communities can have certain smaller areas where families can still enjoy the outdoors while still maintaining proper social distancing measures.
