The energy performance of log homes is frequently confusing for people to understand, and many believe that log homes are not energy efficient. Although log home oenwers can tell you how energy efficient their own log homes are compared to stick-built homes they have owned or are near them, the rumors and misinformation continue.
Recently, Rob Pickett of Rob Pickett & Associates finalized the 2015 Energy Performance of Log Homes White Paper and it was recently uploaded onto the Log and Timber Homes Council Consumer Webpage. This White Paper provides actual field data and its analysis on the energy efficiency of log homes. Nationwide, energy and building officials are downloading and referencing this document, and we suggest that you, our potential Clients, look it over as well. If anything, please read the Conclusion on pages 39-40, which summarizes the exceptional energy performance of well designed log homes like ours.
