Energy Efficient

Wood-One of nature's best insulators

Our building techniques keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer!

We've shown you fine examples of log home living "Country Log style" and we have discussed how this style is backed by considerable substance, our patented Log Home Construction System. Our precut log home packages are protected by a Lifetime Limited Warranty and your design options are limited only by your lifestyle, building site and budget.

 

Another advantage of solid wood structures that log home owners are pleased to acknowledge, is the energy performance of a properly constructed log home. 

Wood is one of nature's best insulators. When solid log walls are stacked using today's sophisticated log construction techniques, the results are log homes that are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than their conventionally constructed neighbors.

The traditional "R-value" associated with any one log can vary depending upon thickness and log species. The energy efficiency of an Adirondack Country Log Home depends upon a property of wood called "thermal capacitance." Simply put, the cells which make up the log's structure do not allow the easy transfer of heat from the inside of the home to the outside making your log home warmer in the winter. Further, during the summer months heat is not transferred easily from the outside to the inside living spaces helping to keep your log home cooler.

The inherent ability of solid log walls to "store" heat helps to guarantee less fluctuation in your home's inside temperature, leading to lower energy bills and reduced consumption of fuel. Both of these benefits are particularly attractive to today's responsible log home owners.

Year after year the states which boast the greatest number of newly constructed log homes are located in some of the coldest and most unforgiving areas of the nation. Although it is difficult to imagine a more perfect setting for a Log Home than the natural beauty of the dramatic sites found in places like Colorado, Pennsylvania, New York and Montana, they also feature harsh weather conditions marked by climate extremes.

In locations such as these, the energy performance of your log home is at least as important as the stylistic options and natural beauty offered by modern log home living.  It's clear that your Country Log Home "stacks up the best", eye-catching style combined with a patented construction system resulting in unmatched energy performance.
