Year-round Comfort for You and Your Family

Drafty rooms | Ellison Building | Cape Fear, NCAt the end of a long day, there’s simply nothing better than returning to a comfortable home. One of Ellison Building Company's core philosophies is to provide superior comfort through building science, and we are acheiving that goal with every home we build.

Factors that Affect Home Comfort

There are a variety of factors that can get in the way of achieving high levels of comfort within a home, including the following:


The temperature of each room in your home should remain consistent, as this can affect comfort more than anything else. Variation in temperature between rooms can also lead to discomfort.

Drafts / Air Movement

Drafts occur whenever proper air-sealing principles are not employed during the building process, and they can make even the most attractive home difficult to inhabit. A drafty room can make you feel as if you’re sitting outside instead of relaxing in the comfort of a warm home. Air movement through the building envelope also contributes to moisture and mold problems within walls, which affects the durability of a home and the health of its occupants.


Moisture levels within a home can influence comfort even when homeowners are unaware that they have humidity issues. High levels of humidity can lead to mold, bacteria and dust mites, which places your family at risk for a variety of potential ailments.

A “Whole-home Approach” for Comfort and Versatility

To avoid potential issues that might affect the comfort of your home, it’s important to work with a builder who takes a “whole-home approach.” This approach is characterized by viewing the home as a system and ensuring that every one of its processes works in tandem with one another. It’s a hallmark of what sets Ellison Building Company apart from other builders in the area, and one that has resulted in supreme comfort for our clients and customers.
