Incredible energy efficiency—that’s really the best way to describe the homes of tomorrow. These homes will have digital programmable thermostats, which provide precise temperature control options. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that digital thermostats can save homeowners 10 to 30 percent on heating and cooling costs. The homes of the future will be better able to retain warm or cold air, depending on the temperature conditions outside.You can expect these homes to have LED lighting packaging since LED bulbs last up to 50,000 hours. These bulbs are significantly more efficient than the incandescent bulbs and fluorescent bulbs commonly found in homes today. Solar-ready roofs, low flow plumbing, heat recovery ventilators, and radiant floor heating will also be features of the new homes.
Best of all, the homes of the future will be built pretty quickly—in about six to nine months. To learn more about the homes of tomorrow, check out the infographic.
