Energy Efficiency

The National Bureau of Standards finds that a log’s thermal mass is a very important factor in energy efficiency and can reduce a log home’s overall energy needs and expenses by as much as 30 percent.

Thermal mass measures a materials capacity to absorb, store and slowly release heat over time when temperatures drop.

Therefore, it takes longer for temperature to move through a log wall than a wood frame insulated wall. Once a temperature has been established on the inside of a log home, it takes longer for that temperature to change so your heating/cooling units cycle less often.
