This steel framed house with IMP panels and solar energy system is likely the most energy efficient home in Florida. With insulation values of approximately R-41, the energy required to run this 1500 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is less than ½ of what the (20) 340 watt panels produce each day. In fact, there is enough excess energy to be able to charge an electric car each day for no cost to the homeowner.
Since the entire structure and insulated envelope is made of steel (which is mostly recycled in America) there will be zero maintenance on the home over a 25 year period. There are significant cost savings over a conventional home with this sustainable home.
Here are the savings the homeowner can expect:
1) Electricity $168/mo
2) Maintenance/repairs $120/mo
3) Insurance $50/mo
4) Gas (with EV ownership) $180/mo
5) Car maintenance (with EV ownership $50/mo
TOTAL SAVINGS $668/MONTH $8,016 per year $200,400 over 25 years
State of the art high efficiency IMP technology makes this home the most energy efficient home in the area. The insulated metal wall and roof panels (as well as the solar panels) are warranted for 25 years, ensuring virtually no maintenance costs over that period of time. This home is not about the cost for buying but more about the savings while owning it. No VOC paints used inside or out, virtually allergen free and mold/moisture resistant, this home is ideal for people with allergies or respiratory ailments. With less than a few hundred linear feet of wood in the construction of the entire house (window sills, cabinets, interior door frames and A/C platform), the clean, mold resistant steel frame, envelope and framing members will ensure almost a 100% prevention from mold or water damage problems.
The entire structure, including impact windows and doors are category 5 storm rated for over 170 mph winds. With no roof shingles or tiles, there will never be an insurance claim for lost roofing shingle. With the "pitched roof design" there is no traditional attic, meaning there are no required soffit holes to circulate air as required in traditionally built homes. (This is where most homes are susceptible to water penetration and mold issues.) A 100% sealed steel envelope also ensures no moisture gain through cracks/holes or natural means such as with wooden homes or even stucco homes. All windows and doors are outfitted with hurricane glass.
