LOG HOME STRENGTH:
According to Matt Dobson with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), log homes do offer greater protection from the elements and natural disasters. Dobson says these structures are typically over-engineered and better capable of withstanding natural disasters. He believes that with proper maintenance and treatment, log homes last longer than conventional homes.
R-FACTOR & THERMAL MASS:
THE National Bureau of Standards and Technology erected test structures and recorded their energy consumption, their findings were amazing. They found that over a 3 week spring heating period, a log structure used 46% less energy than the same sized insulated wood-frame structure; during the 11 week summer period, the log structure used 24% less cooling energy than the insulated wood frame structure; and during the 14 week winter period; the log structure used 15% less than the insulated wood-frame structure.
There is often confusion about the energy efficiency of log homes as compared to traditional stick-built homes.
There are two primary factors that determine the ability of a wall to be an effective barrier to temperature differences. One is "R-Value," which is a numerical measure of a material's resistance to heat flow over a defined thickness of that material. Second is "thermal mass," which is a measure of a material's ability to store heat and thereby delay heat flow. Traditional Insulated Frame Walls Conventional framed walls typically use fiberglass insulation and have an R-value of about R-13 to R-19. Fiberglass is a good, lightweight insulating material which traps air within its fibers and is therefore a poor conductor of heat. It, however, has very low mass and does not store heat.
Solid Log Walls
Log walls are dense and heavyweight, making them poorer insulators of heat than air-filled fiberglass walls. In fact, a log wall the same thickness as an insulated wall (about 6-7 inches) would only have an R-value of about R-9. However, the high density of solid wood also creates an important "mass effect." Instead of heat being conducted through a log wall, as the lower R-value might suggest, the heat is actually stored in the logs and significantly delayed in its release. This allows, for example, high outside temperatures to be effectively blocked and stored during the hottest part of the day, and released during the cooler night. In winter, heat from the inside of your home is stored in the logs and released back during the colder night. In effect, thermal mass tends to even out large temperature changes. This interesting phenomenon is often referred to as "thermal capacitance."
What It Means
Because of thermal mass benefits, log homes, can be 2.5% - 15% more energy efficient than comparable stick-built homes, according to the National Association of Home Builders, Log Homes Council. Assuming other parts of the home, such as roof, floors, windows, and doors, are similarly insulated, log homes can cost significantly less to heat and cool. Many log homes in cold climates are heated with nothing other than a single fireplace or stove. Note: No home, no matter the type of construction is energy efficient if poor construction methods are used.
LOG STYLES - Swedish Cope Logs
This style is known for its beauty, strength, and efficiency. The saddle notched corner system is aesthetically pleasing, and locks the two walls in a corner together. Log sizes are milled in a range from 6 to 16 inches in diameter. Offered by Ernest Smith with Abode Real Estate Equal housing opportunity.
