Energy Savings for Double-wide Benefits
Energy costs can take a big bite out of your budget, especially if your mobile home has poor insulation and air leaks. We can help you make energy-saving upgrades that save money month after month and make your home more comfortable in every season. It’s easy to get started with resources from Energize Connecticut.
The average mobile home owner in the Northeast spends over $2,000 on energy each year, almost double what any other type of housing spends per square foot1. Poor insulation, air leaks, leaky ductwork and inefficient windows and doors are common problems. Fortunately, energy-saving improvements can improve energy efficiency, reduce energy costs and make your home more comfortable.
Many mobile homes can be remodeled or retrofitted to improve energy efficiency with:
- General repairs (caulking air leaks, sealing and repairing ducts, etc.)
- Energy-efficient windows and doors
- Belly insulation or a belly wrap
- Insulated skirting
- Roof insulation or a roof cap
- Wall insulation
