Guaranteed, Low Heating Costs
Celebration - Aurora, IL
Bigelow Homes is so confident in the energy efficiency of our homes that we will guarantee your heating costs are *$400 or less for the entire year. We are the only builder that can make this claim.
Here are some other things we do to keep your heating costs down:
ENGINEERED FOR VALUE AND ENERGY-EFFICIENCY
Not only does our modern, engineered advanced framing system save up to 10% of the lumber used in traditional framing techniques, it also allows us to optimize the amount of insulation used.
STATE OF-THE-ART WINDOWS
By installing Low-E (emissivity) windows we not only reduce short wave infrared radiation, we also reduce the fading of upholstery and drapes by 80%. At the same time, you’re saving energy.
SHINE A LIGHT ON YOUR SAVINGS
We have been using energy-efficient, compact fluorescent lighting for years because we have understood that it is a great way for homeowners to save money on their monthly energy bills.
WE HAVE OUR DUCTS IN A ROW
We design our homes so that all ductwork is within the thermal envelope. There are no ducts in the attic or exterior walls where they can increase heating and cooling costs by 30%.
Properly sized heating and cooling systems based on computer simulation and analysis ensures increased overall indoor comfort, air quality and energy savings.
* This applies to The Jubilee, The Fiesta, The Melody, and The Merriment models. Larger homes include a $600/yr. heating guarantee.
