How do log cabins do in terms of insulation and energy costs?



  1. 0 Votes

    With the correct insulation, log homes have proven to be very energy efficient. A properly insulated log home can save anywhere from 2.5%-15% more energy than a standard home in most U.S. climates. These percentages can end up costing a homeowner between $150 and $400 less per year on heating and cooling related energy costs. An average log home has 7″ thick walls which makes for a fairly energy efficient living situation. These costs will certainly vary from climate to climate, but overall it seems safe to say that log homes do well in terms of energy efficiency and costs.
