Studies by the US Department of Energy show that 40% of a home’s energy is lost as the result of air infiltration through walls, windows and doorways. 

A lot of the value of a home comes with how it was constructed. Small details can make a big difference, including on how much you will pay every single month for heating, cooling and other utilities. These costs may not be reflected in the purchase price but represent long term costs to homeowners. At Ivory Homes we use blown-in insulation on all new homes. We also address small details many people don’t think of. We build an energy-efficient home that is comfortable to live in and costs less to heat and cool.

What many homeowners don’t realize is how one house that is well-insulated might be paying half or less to heat or cool their home. You may be paying $150 a month while they are paying $250+ for a similar size home. That really adds up over time. Some builders make it an upgrade to add more insulation but our standards are high without an upgrade.
