We have been fortunate to work with Bruce B. Butler AIA on several projects which he has designed to be extremely energy efficient, responsible to the environment, as well as beautiful and a pleasure to live in. It is great to collaborate with an architect and with homeowners who share our interest in sustainable construction.
There are a number of excellent insulation options available today. For us, however, one stands out as being the best value as it balances performance and cost. Combining 2” of closed-cell spray foam against the interior side of the wall sheathing with dense-pack cellulose in the remainder of the wall cavity creates very effective air sealing and high R-value with no gaps or voids while maintaining full contact with all six sides of a wall cavity as recommended by Energy Star Thermal Bypass guidelines.
The BIB system will not settle over time, has no added moisture, and will not promote mold growth. When utilized with advanced framing techniques, diligent wall sealing methods, and insulated sheathing, we achieve tight wall assemblies with high R-values which manage moisture effectively.
It is our pleasure to work with Royal River Heat Pumps of Freeport, Maine to include high efficiency ducted and ductless Mitsubishi Heat Pump systems in many of our projects. These systems provide very efficient year-round comfort to our homeowner clients.
We were recently asked to include a whole house fan installation on one of our new home construction projects. We found a great energy-efficient product that provides whole-house cooling in warm weather and does not contribute to cold air infiltration during the heating season. Additional energy-efficient products can also be found at the Tamarack Technologies website.
