to build better energy efficient homes"
We are pleased to announce that our small business strategic
alliance program has been enhanced to meet changing federal
directives of energy home building guidelines.
We would like to introduce a new concept of energy savings for
your home, using proprietary software from our engineering firm
and using our latest technology from Berlin, Germany known as
Hydronic Cooling “a new concept of air conditioning” with Indoor
This systematic approach is quite simple;
Invest on the building envelope to optimize performance!
all of the options below that are appropriate to the project:
openings, select glazing, and utilize shading devices (interior
or exterior) to optimize day lighting and glare control while
minimizing unwanted heat loss and heat gain. Glazing with a high
Visible Transmittance (VT) is desirable for day lighting. Solar
Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)/Shading Coefficient (SC)
requirements depend on desire for maximizing passive solar
heating (higher SHGC) or minimizing heat gain (lower SHGC). In
colder climates, glazing with a low U-factor minimizes energy
use and may reduce need for perimeter heating. Optimize
insulation amounts to reduce heating and cooling energy
consumption by heat losses or heat gains through the building
envelope. Moderate interior temperature extremes by using
thermal mass where appropriate.
the integrity of the building envelope to provide thermal
comfort and prevent condensation. Use best air/vapor barrier
practices and avoid thermal bridging.
In other words, the more you invest on the envelope of the
structure the less you depend on the mechanical system to
What if I guarantee your home of 3,000 sq. ft. and your heating
and cooling bills will be under $100 a month following this
simple method of the “super energy building” concept?
