Green homes have been around for decades, however, as people look for more ways to save money and reduce their impact on the environment, sustainable homes are becoming more and more popular. By building an energy efficient or net-zero energy home, homeowners can greatly reduce their utility bills and generate hundreds of dollars in savings in just a year! How? By building a home using structural insulated panels (SIPs), designers are able to create resilient, well-insulated, and highly sustainable homes that are also beautiful to look at and comfortable to live in. As a custom home SIP designer, Sunlight Homes designs high performance green homes that withstand the test of time.

What are SIPs?

A SIP is a type of sandwich panel, made with a middle layer of insulating foam core and two outer layers of sheathing, typically made of oriented strand boards (OSB). Since SIPs are factory-built, they are made using strictly controlled criteria which help to ensure that every panel meets the quality standard. With these standards in place, SIPs are highly adaptable and can be used for just about any type of home design and offer the same stability as other construction materials with the added benefit of being more energy efficient and cost effective.
