You’ll want to make sure that your log house design is energy efficient so that you can save money on heating and cooling costs in the future and make sure that your home will be useful to you for many years to come.
Insulation. It is possible to insulate your log home design in a number of different ways. When it comes to heating and cooling costs, your choice of insulation can make a big difference.
These batts of fiberglass or mineral wool insulation are used to insulate both framed walls and attics. Most people are familiar with these batts because they are so fluffy. Most people use this type of insulation because it’s the most common and the least expensive. Batt or blanket insulation can be very effective if the insulation is put in the right way.
Heated and cooled. It can take about 56% of the energy used to run your log home to heat and cool it. This shows that the heating and cooling system you choose for your wood cabin can have a big impact on your monthly heating and cooling bills.
Start by looking for appliances that are EnergyStar certified, which means they have the best efficiency ratings. There are some boilers and furnaces that have a 90% or more Annual Fuel Use Efficiency rating. You want to look for those. It’s also important to look for cooling equipment with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) of 13 or more.
Heat pumps will also be the most cost-effective systems in most places. Heat pumps can be used to both heat and cool your home. So why do heat pumps become less efficient as the temperature difference between inside/outside gets bigger? Because they work on the principle that heat moves from one place to another.
