Energy Efficient and Sustainable Homes
The Modular Advantage
When it comes to sustainable construction, building modular remains the most viable option. Modular manufacturing by its very nature is green building by recycling materials, reducing material waste and having a low environmental impact on the job sites. For a home that reduces your energy costs as well as your carbon footprint, enjoy the modular advantage.
NO WASTED MATERIALS
Reuse and Recycle
Recycling is a major part of Westchester Modular Homes Green Initiative. Drywall scraps are shipped to mills where it is recycled into lime for farming. Cardboard, electrical wire, plywood and other materials are sorted and recycled.
Reduces Environmental Footprint
Energy Efficiency is a key component of Westchester Modular’s Building Green Program. R-21 wall insulation and R-38 ceiling insulation are the start of a highly energy-efficient home. Other standard features such as, Andersen 400 Series Low E glass windows filled with argon gas, greatly reduce your energy consumption. In turn, the amount of carbons released into our environment is greatly reduced. We are even able to build to ENERGY STAR or Leed-Certified standards.
PRECISE CONSTRUCTION METHODS
Reduced Environmental Impact
By nature, modular homes are among the best engineered and sturdiest homes built. As a result, they’re extremely quiet to live in - lessening their environmental impact. Tight, precise construction keeps your family warm and away from harmful toxins in the air.
RENOVATING VS. REBUILDING
Teardown and Rebuild
If you love your neighborhood but you need more space, the solution could be to Teardown and Rebuild. It costs less than a complete remodel, has a predictable timeline, and you have the ability to customize your home.
