 What are SIPs?

Big Twig Homes provides you with numerous options to build the house of your dreams. One of those options is SIPs. You may be wondering just what SIPs are how why they may be the right choice for your home. It is important that you understand these options well before making a decision.

One of the most important things in building a home, coming in a close second to design, would be energy efficiency. We all want to find ways to make our living costs lower. This is why SIPs were designed. SIP stands for structural insulated panel, and these panels truly are cutting edge when it comes to home building for energy efficiency. Just how are they so energy efficient?

To start with, an insulated foam is used for the core of each panel. It is adhered to two facings that are used for structural integrity in a home. These panels are placed within the home walls, sandwiched between the inner and outer walls. You do not see the SIPs, but they are doing a great deal of work for you.

SIPs provide continuous insulation. This means that all of your home walls are insulated. When you have a traditional home built, energy can be lost wherever wood beams are placed since wood can transfer heat. In the case of SIPs, there is not energy transference and this is how the use of these panels will increase your home’s energy efficiency noticeably. SIPs can also be placed in the roof and flooring for greater insulation.

Many people worry that building a home with SIPs will actually cost more than other options, but this is not the case. In fact, in many situations, SIPs will actually cost less, providing significant savings over time. You will be happy to know that you can save money to build your home and save money to heat and cool your new home once you have moved in.
