Westchester Modular Homes cares about the environment and our customers. Let us show you how we can save you an average of 15% on utility costs by building green modular homes.
Green Building is a design and construction process that saves energy and natural resources while protecting the environment. A green built modular home uses less energy, water and natural resources, creates less waste and promotes the health and well-being of the home owners and their families. Westchester Modular Homes participates in the Energy Star and LEED programs that encourage the growth of green building.
Modular manufacturing by its very nature is Green by recycling materials, reducing material waste and a having a low environmental impact on the job site. Every Westchester Modular Home is built in a climate controlled factory in Wingdale, NY. Building this way reduces the chance of weather related damage or costly delays in completion of the home. Building in a environmentally controlled environment also eliminates the possibility of lumber becoming wet and incurring mold damage.
Westchester Modular Homes are energy efficient as well. Quality engineering and the latest construction techniques significantly increase the energy efficiency of your new modular home. Your energy costs will be lower and your home will be more comfortable with less drafts and humidity because every Westchester Home is built with R-19 Wall Insulation and R-38 Ceiling Insulation. In addition, Westchester uses 2x6 framing for walls which allows more insulation to be placed in the wall, thereby ensuring greater energy efficiency. Finally, Westchester Homes have much less air infiltration, which is one of the largest causes of heat loss in a home. By these energy-saving features, the customer will pay less to heat their homes in winter and cool their homes in summer.
Westchester Modular Homes is helping homeowners like you to build "green," far healthier for your family, your budget, your neighborhood and the planet.
These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes, built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes. Westchester Modular ENERGY STAR qualified homes improve home quality and homeowner comfort, and lower energy demand and reduce air pollution.
