4 Ways To Improve Your Mobile Home’s Energy Efficiency

Posted in https://mobilehomeoutfitters.com/blog/4-ways-to-improve-your-mobile-homes-energy-efficiency/

Making your home more energy efficient comes with many practical benefits. A few simple changes can make your home more sustainable, significantly reduce your monthly utility bills, and cut down on future maintenance. Here are four ways to improve your mobile home’s energy efficiency and greatly improve your quality of living.

Doors and Windows

Many homes suffer from losing heat or cool air through doors and windows. If you own an older model mobile home, the windows might lack energy efficiency. The thicker panes help to control internal temperatures, and upgraded seals around the edges keep conditioned air indoors. If you live in an area with severe weather conditions, installing a manufactured home storm door can keep your house safe and provide an extra layer of temperature control.


Installing insulation can make your home more energy efficient and help you maintain a comfortable internal temperature. Unfortunately, many mobile homes have narrow spaces that make installing insulation difficult but possible. Discuss potential options with a professional before making big renovation plans.

New Skirting

Skirting protects the underside of your mobile home and keeps the pipes safe from wild animals or adverse weather conditions. One way to improve your mobile home’s energy efficiency is to install new skirting. Upgrading to a stronger material and adding insulation can create natural airflow and make your home’s piping system more efficient and manageable.

General Maintenance

No matter how many big changes you make, sometimes the small ones can make the most difference. Taking the time to caulk around seals or gaps can block off leaks. We recommend performing regular duct inspections to ensure no cracks or blockages. General maintenance to your mobile home keeps things comfortable and can reduce stress on your heating and air system to keep things flowing smoothly.
