It’s heating up outside, but that doesn’t mean that your home will as well. If your home is built with concrete block, it’ll hold cooler air inside for longer periods even in the heat of a Florida summer. With airtight walls, concrete block also reduces wall leaks which prevents energy loss and can lower your heating and cooling bills by 50 percent. It may take up to eight hours for a temperature change through a concrete block wall, whereas an insulated wood frame wall takes only an hour with air leaks and up to one third loss of energy in homes.
An energy efficient home will significantly lower your electric bill which is something everybody can get excited about. As one of the most durable materials on earth, concrete block is unquestionably the most practical building material in Florida.
Will you be keeping it cool this summer?
