Benefits of Concrete Block Homes

Energy Efficiency

Attractive Energy Savings
Concrete block homes are more energy efficient than wood homes, especially in Florida’s hot, humid, sun baked climate. That’s because the mass factor of block acts as a reservoir to trap and store heat from the sun, so that interiors stay cooler longer.

The Florida Energy Code recognizes the value of mass by requiring much less insulation for block walls than for wood frame walls.

Another point: air infiltration from “wall leaks” is estimated to cause up to 39% of home energy loss. Concrete block walls, which are more airtight than wood frame walls, seal in air conditioned air far better – while keeping out hot, humid air.
