How to Make Your Mobile Home More Energy Efficient

Mobile home improvements typically fall into one of two categories: aesthetic or functional. Aesthetic improvements such as new flooring or a fresh coat of paint look great, but they won't add storage or help save you money. Functional improvements such as energy efficient mobile home upgrades happen largely behind the scenes to improve your quality of life while reducing your monthly utility bills.

New Windows and Doors

Unless you've replaced your windows and doors in the past 10 years, there's a good chance that they're single-pane, which means that they protect you from the elements with only a single pane of glass. Double-pane vinyl windows start at just over $100, can pay for themselves in just a few short years, and will make you more comfortable year-round. To further increase energy savings, choose low-E or argon gas models.

Air Conditioners

Air conditioners are notorious energy hogs and can account for as much as 60 percent of your utility bills. You can save 5 to 10 percent on your cooling bills by turning the thermostat up a few degrees during the summer, but to slash your energy consumption, you'll need to invest in a new energy efficient AC system. Look for models with a high SEER rating — a 16 SEER air conditioner will use about 20 percent less electricity than a comparable 13 SEER unit.

Heat Pumps

Most people can't tell the difference between air conditioners and heat pumps. They look exactly the same, and both systems keep your home cool. However, heat pumps can work in reverse during the winter to draw ambient heat from outside into your home, which is more energy efficient than firing up the furnace. Just like air conditioners, high SEER heat pumps can save you hundreds of dollars a year in energy bills.

Ceiling Fans

Moving air helps keep your home's temperature uniform throughout the structure. Ceiling fans use a fraction of the energy that air conditioners require, and you can bump the temperature up a few degrees without feeling any warmer.

LED Light Bulbs

In the past few years, LED light bulbs have dropped in price. Many consumers remain on the fence because LEDs are still more expensive than comparable incandescent bulbs, but they will last you between 20 and 50 years depending on use instead of a year or two. LEDs also use about 25 percent of the electricity while generating less heat.

Seasonal Maintenance

A little caulk can go a long way towards making your home airtight. Make sure that your doors and windows don't have any cracks along their edges, and consider installing some insulation behind your skirting to prevent heat loss through your floor.

Some of these tips you can implement tomorrow while others may take a year or two given the investment involved. Either way, taking the time to make a few of these energy efficient upgrades will go a long way in reducing your utility bills.

Mobile homes made during or after October 1994 have had to meet a higher standard for insulation. This means that older homes may need a bit more cooling power. If you have an older mobile home, you might need to consult with a contractor who has experience with HVAC systems for mobile homes.

What AC Unit is Right for My Mobile Home?

Finding the right central air conditioning system for a mobile home is important to maintaining a comfortable environment. An air conditioner performs two functions. The first is to lower the temperature of the area by removing heat. The second is to remove excess humidity from the air. If the unit is too small, it will labor to cool the home especially during the warmest times. However, if the unit is too large, it will have difficulty removing the humidity that builds up in the home, which can result in mold, mildew and condensation around the floor registers. To determine the best system, you will need to consider the following factors.

What is the square footage of the home?

The home's square footage should appear on the sales contract, title, tax statement or the permanent tag affixed to the home. If you have made alterations, such as adding a room, you will need to add that square footage to the original home's number. Should you be unable to locate a document with the footage, you can calculate it by multiplying the home's width by its length.

When was the home manufactured?

Mobile homes made during or after October 1994 have had to meet a higher standard for insulation. This means that older homes may need a bit more cooling power. If you have an older mobile home, you might need to consult with a contractor who has experience with HVAC systems for mobile homes.

Here are some more tips to help you find the right system:
  1. Purchase your unit from a company that specializes in mobile home parts. A unit built for a traditional home often costs more for the same capacity than a unit designed specifically for mobile homes.
  2. A package unit that includes the furnace is typically a better investment than trying to purchase the heating and cooling units separately.
  3. The permanent tag affixed to your mobile home may indicate the size of cooling system that the manufacturer recommended. These are often stated in terms of BTUs, while systems are normally stated in tons. To convert, divide the BTUs by 12,000. To illustrate, if the tag recommends a unit not to exceed 36,000 BTUs, you will likely need a three-ton central unit.
  4. Purchase a unit with a rating of at least 13 SEER, which stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. Higher SEER ratings indicate better energy efficiency. If you live in a hotter climate, you will likely be better off to purchase a unit rated at 16 SEER.

The Perfect Garden Tub for Your Bathroom

The perfect bathtub can be a sanctuary that allows you to forget about the stresses of your day. As such, choosing a tub for your bathroom comes down to a few things: space, design and comfort. When trying to distinguish between different types of tubs, it’s key to note that Garden tubs offer several advantages over traditional tubs and come with plenty of space to enhance your bathing experience.

Give Your Mobile Home More Curb Appeal

Transform your mobile home's exterior for maximum curb appeal with our selection of mobile home parts. You probably spend a lot of time decorating the inside of your home and making sure the decor complements each room, but how much effort goes into the outside of your mobile home? With just a few items and a sunny weekend, you can create an entirely new look and enhance your home in no time.

Start With Landscaping

Create a new entranceway to your front door with a series of stepping stones in the yard. To each side, plant a row of flowers and small shrubs to accentuate the new walking path. In addition, have the stepping stones lead to fiberglass steps for a brand new look.

New fiberglass steps make your mobile home more inviting, and their 12-inch depth offers an easy, comfortable way for you and your visitors to enter your home. Because our steps have a slip-resistant surface and mimic the look of stone, they provide safety in wet conditions and match the look of your new stepping stones.

For even more visual appeal, add our decorative stair railings to your fiberglass steps. Depending on your mobile home's entrance, you can choose between single and dual railings. Adding railings not only creates a pleasant look but also improves safety for everyone who walks up the steps.

Create a Solid Foundation

Give your mobile home the look of a solid foundation with vinyl skirting panels. Skirting panels not only create a uniform appearance around your mobile home, but they also keep out unwanted pests and animals and protect your home from damage. Furthermore, they prevent rainwater from blowing in and causing soil erosion under your home.

Vinyl skirting panels benefit your home in other ways, from offering weatherproofing to adding a pop of color. In fact, skirting panels come in a variety of colors and instantly breathe new life into your mobile home. If you add stepping stones and fiberglass steps, pick skirting panels with a pebblestone color to complement your new additions.

With new steps, stones and skirting in place, step back and view your mobile home's transformation. Accentuate your exterior even more with louvered or raised-panel shutters, and tie the look together with a brand new vinyl-steel combination door. From fiberglass steps to vinyl skirting, upgrade your home's exterior with the help of

Energy Savings Tips for Summer

When summer arrives, it is time to deal with the warm outside temperatures. Often, this means running the air conditioner to stay cool indoors. When living in a mobile home, this can cause a great increase in electric bill costs. To avoid the expense and be friendlier to the environment, it will be helpful to learn some tips to save energy.

Seal Doors and Windows

As summer approaches, it will be important to stay cool. When the air conditioner is on, it is imperative for the cool air to remain inside. Often, mobile homes have poorly sealed doors and windows. This allows warm air to enter and cold air to escape. In the end, the air conditioner will have to run harder to maintain the same temperature.

To make sure these leaks do not occur, it is wise to inspect the spaces surrounding the mobile home's doors and windows. If it is not possible to block the leaks, it may be time to select new windows or doors. Besides being energy efficient, the numerous style choices will update the look of a home as well.

Maintain the Air Conditioning Unit

The best way to make sure an air conditioner is ready for summer is to perform regular maintenance on the unit. The most common chore that assures few problems is cleaning the filter. Every few months, it may be wise to invest in a new filter. Not only will the unit function better, it will also save energy as well.

Replace the Light Bulbs

Although summer is a season filled with sunlight, it will still be necessary to turn on the lamps from time to time. To make things more energy efficient, it is possible to replace old light bulbs with newer energy saving fluorescent models. These bulbs use up to a quarter less energy than traditional bulbs. Lowering the energy usage will create a nice savings at the end of each month.

Cover the Windows

A smart way to keep the heat from the sun out of a mobile home is to keep the windows covered. Window blinds are easy to hang and do not interfere with existing curtains. They will increase privacy and help keep interior temperatures lower. This means that an air conditioner will not need to work as hard. These blinds are available in various sizes to accommodate all windows as well.

Coat the Roof

Something most people forget about is the roof of a home. However, this is one of the first places to consider taking measures to save energy. Many products on the market are made to coat the roof of a mobile home and reflect the warmth of the sun. This will keep interior temperature much lower. A white roof coating will reflect up to 85 percent of the sun's rays. This type of product is simple to apply, especially with a quality roof coating brush and handle.

Use Appliances Wisely

To save energy during the summertime, it is vital to understand how to use appliances wisely. For instance, to keep indoor temperatures down, it is wise to run the dishwasher or dryer at night. It is also better to cook dinner on the barbecue instead of baking in the oven. Lastly, it is important to unplug appliances or other electronics when they are not in use.

Setting the Thermostat Correctly

When your air conditioner is connected to your thermostat, remember to set the temperature to the highest level possible that maintains comfort. It is recommended to set the dial at 78 degrees or higher when at home and 85 degrees while away. This will prevent the A/C unit from running when it is not necessary. It may also be helpful to turn the hot water heater to 120 degrees. Both of these measures will help save energy during summer months.


The best way to make a mobile home energy efficient is to add insulation under the roof and underneath the base. This will protect the home from the elements and help maintain the interior temperatures. In other words, it will remain warm in winter and cool in the summer.

The above tips should help a person save energy in a mobile home during the warm months of summer. They require simple effort but will bring many positive benefits. In the end, using less energy will lower monthly utility bills and help the environment as well.

8 Items to Keep Your Mobile Home Safe

Safety is one of the top concerns for mobile-home owners as well as for conventional-home owners. A thorough inspection of your mobile home may reveal some features you can upgrade and some features you can add that will increase the safety of your family and guests.

Smoke and Carbon-Monoxide Alarms

Early warning systems are important features that help save lives and property, and we have a good selection of alarms that will give you peace of mind concerning fire, smoke and carbon monoxide. Keep a smoke alarm near every sleeping room and living area and select electric or battery-powered detectors. Protect your family from carbon-monoxide poisoning by purchasing a carbon-monoxide detector as well. Our carbon-monoxide detectors powered by lithium batteries have sensor-life monitors, electrochemical sensors and are resistant to tampering. Additionally, a combo alarm combines a smoke detector and a carbon-monoxide detector in one unit for economy and efficiency.

Fire Extinguishers

Made especially for kitchen fires, our kitchen fire extinguishers are effective for electrical, oil and flammable-liquid fires. The fire-fighting contents of the extinguishers are not corrosive and surfaces with which they come in contact are easy to clean.

Our heavy-duty, multipurpose fire extinguishers are rechargeable and valuable tools for controlling fires fueled by electricity, liquids, paper, wood and trash. Keep them in convenient locations where you can reach them quickly if necessary.


Well-lit spaces provide extra measures of safety both inside and outside your mobile home. Exterior lighting discourages intruders by making your home more visible and less attractive to anyone with criminal intentions. Further, you can walk around outside without stumbling on objects left in your driveway or on the sidewalk when you have adequate outdoor lighting, and our lighted assist handles help you locate doors easily. Sufficient indoor lighting helps prevent tripping or stumbling in your home after the sun goes down. We have a wide range of light fixtures, bulbs and shades, including dome lights, ceiling lights, the popular Europa lights, appliance bulbs, chandelier bulbs, a variety of outdoor and indoor shades and even skylights.

Railings and Steps

Guarding against falls at the entries to your home is easy and inexpensive when you install railings along the steps. Our rail mounts have pre-drilled holes for faster installation, and prices start at less than $30. If your steps are cracked or broken, replace them with our fiberglass steps that have textured, slip-resistant surfaces to give a better foothold in any weather. Receding risers allow the steps to offer 12 inches of space for feet and provide a contemporary appearance as well.

Doors, Guards and Viewers

In addition to our standard, manufactured-home doors, we offer doors made of thick, high-quality, vinyl-laminated, galvanized steel to provide greater protection. Comparable to those on site-built homes, the doors have additional value because they feature insulation of energy-efficient polyurethane, and you can add one of our decorative door lights to enhance the appearance of the doors.

Our doorknockers include viewers that let you see who is on the other side of your doors before you open them, and chain guards allow you to open doors enough to speak to people without admitting them into your home.


Locks provide security for your family and your possessions. We have an array of locks, including single and double-cylinder, stainless or brass dead bolts, storm-door closers and latches and patio-door locks, and we offer the kits that make installation simple.


Mobile homes constructed in factories and delivered to their home sites do not have as much structural support as do standard homes built on site. Because mobile homes are lighter, which makes them easy to transport, they may not be sturdy enough to withstand the winds of a strong tornado. Although it is best to get out of mobile homes if threatened by a tornado, it may not always be possible to leave before a storm hits the area. There are ways to make your home safer during extremely windy conditions, including anchoring it down securely. In addition, you can prevent outdoor sheds and other heavy objects like swing sets from becoming flying missiles if you anchor them into the ground as well.

We have the supplies you need to secure your home, like anchor machines and adapters, anchor/stabilizers, patio anchors, J-rod concrete anchors, eye anchors, rock anchors and rods, double-helix anchors, double-head anchors and stabilizer plates.

Warning Signs

Because mobile homes are relatively easy to transport, you may want to literally move your home when you transfer to another location, and our moving and setup equipment will help you make the move safely and efficiently. Tarp straps, longitudinal struts and beam clamps are some of the supplies you will need. If you plan to transport the home yourself, you will also want items to promote safety on the road, like red flags, light bars or strobe beacons and signs warning other motorists about your large load.

Five Upgrades for Your Mobile Home Kitchen

Some people decide to upgrade a mobile home and add personalized touches to the space. This eliminates the factory-made appearance. Since most budgets are tight, a great room to consider renovating is the kitchen. This is the area that is used the most and tends to become a gathering point during parties or family get togethers. Here are five upgrades that will create a unique look in a mobile home's kitchen without breaking the bank.

Change the Faucets

For an instant upgrade to a mobile home's kitchen, it is wise to replace the sink faucet. This is one of the most affordable upgrades as well. Few people realize the big impact that results from replacing such a small fixture. It is possible to choose from a wide variety of fancy faucet options. For instance, choosing a brushed metal or chrome finish will bring shine and class to the room. Selecting a gooseneck design with teapot handles will add elegance to any kitchen.

When changing a faucet in a mobile home, it is wise to replace the stiff water lines as well. The ends of the lines often crack and cause leaks. Replacement will prevent problems down the road.

Replace the Ceiling

One of the first places a mobile home's kitchen begins to show its age is the ceiling. There are numerous ways to upgrade this item. If no leaks are present, it is easy to apply a coat of paint over the area. Many mobile homes have unflattering "popcorn" designs as well. This can be easily removed with some sanding. If it is necessary to replace the ceiling due to water damage, there are some great panel options available. For example, many designs include attractive texturing and code-approved moisture retarder that will not sag.

Consider New Cabinets or Refacing

Many cabinets found in mobile homes are commonly made from pressed boards instead of strong plywood. This can become an eyesore that must be replaced. However, solid wood can be expensive and heavy. To cut the cost, there are numerous discount retailers that provide a wide variety of options. It is essential to hang them correctly and with the right tools, so the cabinets remain on the wall without falling.

If a person is buying new cabinets, it may be smart to purchase a few extra. These will make a wonderful base for a kitchen island. To complete the look, a piece of laminate countertop or wood can be applied to the top.

If the cabinet frames are solid, it may be possible to resurface the existing doors and save a great deal of money. Painting or using a wood laminate covering will definitely boost the appeal in the kitchen. A nice touch would be adding a few glass inserts into the existing cabinet doors as well.

Install New Appliances

Besides improving the overall aesthetics of a mobile home's kitchen, installing new appliances will make it function better as well. There are a wide variety of colors and materials available. Stainless steel is extremely modern and will add a very space-aged feel to the kitchen. Matching the stove and refrigerator will give a great uniform look. It may be wise to install a new sink as well. Sinks are usually inexpensive. A shiny new sink will provide extra appeal to the room. However, it is important to make sure the unit is made for use in a mobile home.

Replace the Floor and Backsplash

Most original mobile home flooring is made of particle board. This breaks down easily and absorbs water, which makes it a poor choice in a kitchen. Often, this material soaks up wetness and begins to rot. Many times, the floor begins to feel like a sponge.

Even if the floor seems like it is in good condition, cheap linoleum is usually used as the floor covering. To update the look, it will be necessary to get rid of the old flooring. This includes the sub-flooring as well. After the particle board is removed, a layer of plywood should be nailed into place. Vinyl tile will be the cheapest and most durable covering choice. It is possible to select a tile for both the floor and a new backsplash. This will tie the design into the whole decor of the room. A great way to finish the room is with a decorative crown molding.

When a person is upgrading a mobile home's kitchen, the above tips should provide some creative ideas. Although space is commonly limited, it is possible to make the most out of every inch and create a functional and modern room.

Bathroom Upgrades For The Spring

Give your home more than a fresh coat of paint this spring. With our vast selection of mobile home parts, you'll be able to completely transform the look and feel of your bathroom at heavily discounted prices. Whether you install a deep and relaxing soaking tub or a spacious shower, you'll want to stay in your bathroom all day.

Enough Room to Stretch Your Legs

Space is always a concern, so we carry a wide variety of tub dimensions to fit any bathroom. Our 54-inch bathtubs are perfect for smaller bathrooms while our 60-inch models, designed for your Master Bathroom, allow you to stretch out.

Because it's made from fiberglass, it's both durable and lightweight, making it easy to install and even easier to enjoy. With multiple drain and color options, you can pick out a tub to fit your bathroom's existing plumbing and decor without costly upgrades.

For homeowners who want more room to kick back, we recommend the 60-inch drop-in tub, which holds a whopping 48 gallons of water. While the 42-inch wide tub won't fit in every bathroom, the 23.5-inch depth can't be beat. We guarantee that you've never experienced a more comfortable bath.

Beautiful Shower Surrounds for Less

We carry surrounds for both tubs and shower pans. Made from either ABS or fiberglass, surrounds complete your bathroom's look while protecting your walls and floor from water damage, which can cause rust, rot, and mold.

Our surrounds also come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes, so you can match your bathtub. We recommend choosing your tub and surround at the same time, so you can pick out a surround that fits your tub's style.

Some models come in multiple sections, allowing you to compensate for different dimensions, and if you need extra storage, look at surrounds with integrated shelves. You can add shelves and caddies later, but it's easier and cheaper to purchase surrounds that already include them.

Spend Less Time Cleaning

Looking forward to spring cleaning? Nobody else is, but don't worry — we believe that spring is meant to be enjoyed outdoors. Nobody should be stuck inside cleaning day in and day out.

Our bathtubs, shower pans, and surrounds are all coated in high-gloss resins to make them incredibly easy to clean. You'll have less mold, soap, and hard water buildup, and a light cleaning once a month should be sufficient to keep your new bathroom sparkling.

Many of our tubs come with five-year warranties and when they arrive in one piece, you probably won't run into any issues down the road. Each tub goes through a four-step quality control process to eliminate defects and ensure that your tub will last for decades.

No More Shower Curtains

Let the light in! No spring renovation is complete without a brand new glass shower or bath door, which brightens up any bathroom. A shower curtain makes your bathroom feel smaller than it really is, but a glass door makes it feel more spacious.

Have you ever tried to clean a shower curtain? They're all but impossible to scrub, but glass doors are a breeze to keep spot-free. Spray them with your favorite cleaning solution, and quickly wipe them off with a rag or squeegee. Integrated handles and drips make our shower doors a snap to install, and they come in sizes ranging from 27 to 54 inches.

Faucets, Shower Heads, and Other Fixtures

Now that your spring upgrade is almost complete, it's time to start putting the finishing touches on your bathroom. We carry a variety of faucets and shower heads specifically designed for mobile homes. With integrated valves, you can install these fixtures in minutes and begin enjoying them almost immediately.

Each faucet comes in polished chrome, nickel, oil rubbed bronze or antique brass finish for a sharp look that's also easy to clean. Hard water spots come off in seconds with a little vinegar, and you'll be able to keep your fixtures bright and shiny with next to no effort.

The Right Fit With The Right Plumbing

Just as important as the quality of your bathtub is the quality of your plumbing. Our drains and accessories keep your water flowing in one direction. Each piece is made from either high-quality brass or plastic, which won't corrode over time and start leaking.

Flanges and molding keep water from penetrating your walls and floor, and we even carry repair kits to patch up holes and cracks in your bathtub or shower surround. Whether you're repairing an existing bathroom or completely renovating it, our plumbing parts will ensure worry-free operation for years to come.

The Benefits of Insulated Skirting

Energy costs have been trending up for the past five decades, and they're not showing any signs of slowing down. Mobile home owners spend more on heating and cooling than they do on appliances or electronics, and the easiest way to slash your utility bills is to upgrade your home's exterior with insulated skirting.


Your mobile home is open on all four sides and on top, but it's also open to the elements underneath. While your walls and roof are already packed with fiberglass or foam insulation, your floor is constantly leaking energy, which is costing you hundreds of dollars a year and overwhelming your HVAC equipment.

Many of our skirting products meet or exceed insulation found in permanent construction. For example, the Rapid Wall line of skirting panels offers insulating values starting at R9. The foam and foil wall panels used in permanent homes typically range between R3 and R5, letting more thermal energy escape.

Insulated skirting is more expensive than traditional vinyl skirting, but it will pay for itself in just a few years, and you'll enjoy energy savings for as long as you own your mobile home. With a small investment, you'll enjoy heating and cooling savings of 20 to 25 percent, and you'll be far more comfortable in summer and winter.


Want to increase your home's curb appeal? Check out our selection of decorative skirting such as K Rok, which gives your home's exterior the appearance of real stone. Prices start at just $4.61 per linear foot, so you can update your home's look for just a few hundred dollars.
For a traditional look, check out our selection of Novik skirting, which looks and feels just like real brick. It's UV-resistant, so it won't discolor even after years of baking in the hot sun, and it's durable enough to withstand any type of climate.

All of our decorative skirting products will look great with your existing siding, and they require absolutely no maintenance whatsoever. Once you install them, you'll enjoy them for decades to come without painting or repairing them. All of our vinyl products come in a variety of colors, so you'll be able to closely match your existing decor with ease.


Insulated skirting products are designed for fast and easy installation. They require only a few steps to install, and you'll be able to finish the job in just a few hours. Our complete skirting kits include everything you need for installation, so there's no guesswork, and you won't need to order individual parts.

Other exterior upgrades are just as easy to install. Our raised panel shutters go up in minutes, and our fiberglass steps take no time at all. Vinyl siding and skylights are slightly more difficult to install, but most homeowners will still be able to install them without hiring a professional.


Like your roof, your skirting requires adequate ventilation to prevent hot air from building up. We carry vents for each skirting product line, so you'll be able to find the perfect vents for your mobile home. There's absolutely no need to mix and match parts from different brands or product lines.
Additionally, our skirting products provide moisture protection, which prevents moisture from seeping up into your home from underneath. Moisture can be a significant problem in any home by rotting carpet and drywall, cracking wood floors, and discoloring any surface it touches, and it's costly to repair after the fact.


Insulated skirting increases your home's security by preventing people and animals from crawling underneath. You won't have to worry about your kids getting trapped beneath your home, and snakes, raccoons, and other wild animals won't set up their homes beneath your own.

Spring is the perfect time to upgrade your home's exterior. It's neither hot nor cold, and the mild weather is perfect for exterior upgrades. Have a question about any of our products or need some help with your order? Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-771-2200.
