Any changes in the external climatic conditions have an almost immediate effect on the climate inside the structures. The heat loss from the internal parts of the house is direct. Contrarily, insulated log cabins prevent such influences of the external environment over the internal climate of the structure.

The loss of heat from the interiors of insulated log cabins is little and, therefore, the weather inside the cabin remains pleasant for a longer time. A stable temperature positively affects the human body by keeping its temperature at a stable level.

   *  Wood is a natural insulator

  *  The transfer of heat between the interiors of a wooden cabin and the external environment is minimum

Insulated log cabins avoid any loss of heat from the internal parts of the house. Likewise, if the external climate is too hot, the heat from the outside does not get transferred to the inside. Hence, whether the external environment is either cold or warm, the interiors of the insulated log cabins remain at a comfortable level. It means there is significantly low requirements of weather control equipment. In winters, as the interiors of wooden cabins remain warm, there is a significantly low need for heating apparatus or even the fireplace.

As there is a lesser need for such equipment, it results in saving energy. Insulated log cabins are more energy efficient than the houses made using any other material. Since energy efficiency results in lesser emissions, the adverse effect of the weather controlling equipment on the health of the people is reduced to a great extent.
