- Improved air circulation - An open floor plan allows for better air circulation throughout your home. This results in less use of air conditioners, furnaces, or other HVAC systems.
- Increased natural light - Open floor plans allow the most light to come in, leaving the ability to turn off light fixtures to your leisure.
- Cleanliness and ease of use - Many homeowners prefer open floor plans as they use space most efficiently, but they are also easier to clean. This not only saves time and effort, but you can use less power and cleaning products.
There are a number of things that you can do to improve your home’s energy efficiency while building a new home, but an open floor plan is just one. Here at Miller Construction, we also utilize excellent insulation and efficient utilities.
