Why Our Homes Are Energy Efficient

And why you’ll feel right at home in your pick

We’ve all been there. Getting that energy bill that makes you legitimately reconsider every single decision you’ve made until this point. Needless to say, it’s an eye-opening experience for sure. This experience is part of the reason why we champion energy efficient practices in the building of our homes.  

Our homes are built to meet high thermal efficiency requirements, meaning they feature: 

  • Low-E windows 
  • Airtight building envelope  
  • Insulation values that meet or exceed code standards for keeping homes comfortable 
  • Optional features such as LED lighting packages and programmable thermostats 

This keeps you living comfortably inside your home and keeps the elements living outside of the home.

Our manufactured homes and our modular homes are energy efficient, but the standards and requirements differ for each.  They are similar but built to a different code. Each state has its own code for modular construction. For HUD manufactured homes, there are different thermal zones. HUD is also a very active EnergyStar® proponent, though not all HUD homes are EnergyStar® certified, so be sure to search with this detail in mind if it’s important to you. 

Northwood A-46653

EnergyStar® certified homes “are designed and built better from the ground up,” as per the U.S. Department of Energy. This means they are built using more stringent thermal assemblies related to walls, floors, ceilings, windows, doors, and more! The result is better design and construction; these homes provide more sustainable and eco-friendly advantages you can trust.

Model 2444 will bring all your #coastalvibes dreams to life! 

First thing first, what is a prefab home? Well, another term for prefabricated homes is “factory-built homes.” This second term might shed more light on what a prefab home really is: a home built and designed in an off-site facility and then transported to the site for assembly and finishing. Prefabricated homes are brought to their final site about 90% already done.  

The World of Prefab Homes

So, now you know “prefabricated” refers to how and where a home is built. Now it’s time to learn about the different types of prefabricated homes available to you!

    • Factory-built homes built to the HUD code. To learn more about manufactured homes, click HERE.  
  • Modular

Why Are Prefabricated Homes More Affordable? 

Factory-built homes are more affordable because they are more efficient. Let us explain. Having the luxury of building homes in a climate-controlled facility means a lot of great things. One of those means being able to pre-plan and pre-buy materials according to what we know we will build each day. This means fewer materials are wasted because we can allot what we buy to our standard building output. Also, using a skilled labor force means workers are assembled efficiently as well. This means multiple homes are finished in our building facilities every day!  

What Are Some More Benefits of Prefabricated Homes? 

Sustainability, energy efficiency and timeline, just to name a few! 

And there you have it! As you can probably see, prefab homes are pretty darn cool! And at Champion® Homes, we like to think ours are the coolest. Ready to make the leap into factory-built housing? Talk to a retailer near you for your best options today!

The Difference Between Manufactured and Modular Homes

Let’s Set the Record Straight on Your Options

So, you’re interested in factory-built housing, but don’t know where to start. We get it! The world of pre-fabricated homes is vast and full of options, so you’ll definitely want to know which of those options work best for you and your lifestyle. When it comes to manufactured homes and modular homes, knowing the difference can take you a long way. So, let’s get into it!

Manufactured Homes 

Manufactured homes have actually been around longer than you might think. You’ve likely heard manufactured homes referred to as mobile homes in your day-to-day conversations. Before 1976 when the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) code was developed, they were referred to as mobile homes. After the HUD code was developed, they were and still are referred to as manufactured. Same type of home, but manufactured homes of today meet the regulations of the HUD code.

  • Manufactured home built-in shelves
  • Manufactured home living room
  • Manufactured home primary bedroom
  • Manufactured home primary bathroom

Modular Homes 

A modular home is a home that is also built in a climate-controlled indoor factory, but to a local state code, such as the International Residential Code, or IRC. You may often hear modular homes described as “prefabricated homes.” A modular home is built in sections, or modules, which are then delivered to and assembled on the home site. A modular home is more comparable to a site-built home in details like its available financing through more traditional mortgages and the local codes to which it is built.

Similarities & Differences 

The main similarity you’ll find between manufactured and modular homes is that they’re both built in a climate-controlled factory by skilled craftspeople who do the same thing every day. All of our scrap material is used somewhere in the home instead of being piled and thrown away like in site-built homes.  

The main difference you’ll find between manufactured and modular homes is the codes to which they are built. The HUD code can differ from the code of a specific state, town or county, and this all helps to determine what kind of house can be built and where. For example, a home built to the HUD Code for delivery in Massachusetts could be very different from a home built to local the Massachusetts modular code.. And that’s just one state!  

Bottom line: we’re building homes to the right code for the right regions.  

Whether you’re looking to go the manufactured route or the modular route, factory-built provides the advantages you’ll want and need as a new homeowner. Browse our floorplans today and find the home of your dreams.

The Light Choice

Choosing the right lighting for your home

It’s time to shed light on something important in the realm of home design: lighting! Choosing lighting fixtures for your home can really make a difference. In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the details and thought processes that will help you make the best decision for your home, room by room.  

Finishes are key. 

 The material used in a lighting fixture can add a special touch to a room and should be considered when thinking of your overall design. When it comes to choosing a finish, you want to let current trends guide you but not anchor you, so that you won’t bring in a finish that’s going to date the product.  

These days, you see a lot of mixed finishes. This helps because if one fades, the other will keep it from being considered outdated. Brushed nickels, matte blacks, lots of gold (champagne for example) — those are metal finishes. You’re seeing a lot of wicker, tan, basket weaving textures paired with metals. As for textures, cane is very popular. Terrazzo, which used to be huge in flooring in the 60s/70s, is now making a name for itself again in lighting.  

Paint and application are huge because you can have one material, but it can look something totally different. People are really exploring new approaches to classic touches, which means lots of mixing. 

Go big AND go home.  

The size of lighting has changed over the years, and larger than life lights are more popular than ever as lighting becomes more and more of a talking point in a home. “Oh, I LOVE these lights over your island” has become much more common of a conversation. At Champion® Homes, we are always trying to find the best in lighting with our customers’ best interests in mind, that includes both style and affordability. 

Lighting is important now because it’s so much easier to change the lighting out instead of trying to change the structure of your home. If you select something that allows for flexibility, and allows you to be eclectic, that decision will allow you to make changes down the road more easily. 

 Want to see a visual representation on the importance of lighting? Be sure to check out our models, including the Advantage 3276 211, the Titan Extreme 3276F and the Magazine. Interested in illuminating your path to homeownership? Contact us today.  

What is a Manufactured Home?

Here are all the details you’ll need to begin your manufactured home experience

You might be seeing a lot of media about the benefits of manufactured homes and why you should consider one if you’re in the homebuying market. But you may be confused to know: what IS a manufactured home? What sets it apart from a stick-built home and why is it a smart purchase? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

  • Yes, its a manufactured home!
  • Manufactured home kitchen

  • Manufactured home living room

The first thing you should know about manufactured homes is that they’re factory-built. This means our teams work indoors, in climate-controlled facilities, with no dependence on weather fluctuations like your typical site-built home. Because manufactured homes are factory-built, they provide assurance for details such as:

  • Quality control
  • Weather-protected construction materials
  • Construction speed
  • Energy-efficient structures
  • Less waste

So, you’ve likely heard manufactured homes referred to as mobile homes in your day-to-day conversations.  That’s a historical reference that has changed from the past perception.

Now, let’s move on to why we call them “manufactured” homes. From the early 50’s to the mid 80’s manufactured homes were referred to as single-wide and double-wide mobile homes. In 1976, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) federal building code was developed to bring oversite to the growing mobile home industry and that lead to the new product type “Manufactured Homes.” The (HUD) federal building code continues to evolve and is updated by various government committees on a regular basis to ensure all the latest standards regarding safety, energy, structural integrity, and indoor air quality are maintained at a high level.

Why Should You Care? Manufactured homes offer many advantages, including:

  • Affordability
  • An independent engineering plan review and inspection process
  • Governed by the federal HUD code who sets quality standards for manufactured housing
  • Insulated for the right climate, wind and seismic criteria
