New Homes & Buildings are More Efficient

September 9, 2019


Whether you are seeking space for your growing business or buying a home for your growing family, there are many factors to consider, including price range, loan and mortgage rates, and of course location. But you should not overlook another important factor - the age of the property.


While old homes and businesses have their charms, the value of new construction is impossible to ignore. New homes and businesses are far more efficient than those built just a decade ago, and that efficiency could mean lower maintenance costs, reduced utility bills and fewer problems down the line. Here are some of the reasons why new homes and commercial builders are the more efficient choice.


Advanced House Framing

No matter the size, or the cost, of your new home, its quality rests on its frame. Framing a home is the most critical step in the construction process, and advances in house framing technology have created enormous improvements in the quality of new homes - and their ability to stand up to extreme weather conditions.


This advanced house framing is one of the biggest advantages of building a new home, yet it is often overlooked. Before you buy an existing home, do yourself a favor and research the advances in framing technology.


Better Insulation and Air Sealing

The cost of the mortgage is just one expense of owning a home or commercial building. Utility bills can be a big part of the cost, especially if your home or business is prone to air leaks and other common problems.


Compared to homes and businesses built a few decades ago, newly constructed properties are far more energy-efficient. With better insulation and advanced air sealing, these homes and commercial buildings are designed to keep cold air out in winter and hot air out in the warm summer months. This greater efficiency could mean lower heating and cooling costs - making a new building a much better value.


Multi-Pane Vinyl Windows

The quality of the windows is a critical factor in everything, from safety to energy efficiency. If you are seeking space for your new business, the safety of your employees - and your inventory - is your responsibility, and multi-pane vinyl windows can provide that protection.


Multi-pane vinyl windows can also enhance the energy efficiency of your home or commercial space, and that could mean sharply lower utility bills and a lower cost of doing business. These windows are relatively new technology, and they are far more likely to be found in newly constructed homes and businesses.


Smarter Building Additions

Older homes were designed for an earlier age, long before the advent of the internet and the new technological workplace. Newly constructed homes and office spaces, on the other hand, come with many of these smart amenities built-in.


From built-in Wi-Fi and wired internet access to special connections for newer appliances and electronics, these new homes and business spaces have many advantages. It is also easy to add on to a new home or commercial building, so your family - or your business - can grow with you.


If you are in the market for a home or business, there are many reasons to consider new construction. Newly constructed homes and businesses are more energy-efficient, more cost-effective and overall better value for the money.
