The Energy-Efficient, Healthy Home

You might be thinking about your dream kitchen.  But the decisions you make on what materials will be used to construct the shell of your home will have a much larger impact on your family’s health and well-being.  


People spend 90% of their time indoors.  The quality of indoor air can make a significant difference in overall health, productivity, and long-term quality of life.  A healthy home starts with an efficient, tightly-sealed Building Envelope.   Proper insulating, sealing, and ventilation with the highest-performance materials makes a big difference to ensure the Indoor Air Quality is at it’s best. Best-building practices include ThermalBuck™ High-Performance ROESE, which will limit condensation at the mounting points of windows.

Protect not only your house, but the people who make it your home.  

 

Long-Term Energy Savings

As natural resources become more expensive to consume, homeowners realize that improving the energy efficiency of their home is an extremely important consideration whether building a new home, or remodeling their existing home.

Reducing the amount of natural resources needed to heat and cool your home is better for the environment, and your wallet.

Water can be very destructive in a home.  Your builder will prevent water from entering the home at every possible point of failure.  Through proper installation of windows and doors using ThermalBuck™, you greatly limit the opportunities for condensation to form at the mounting points of windows & doors.

ThermalBuck™ helps prevent mold and mildew growth, which affects the quality of the air in your home.  

Better for the Environment

  

ThermalBuck™ does not contain ozone depleting gasses, or any harmful VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds).  Lightweight, it saves CO² emissions when freighted.

Energy-efficient windows and doors are important – but if they aren’t mounted properly, it won’t matter how energy efficient they are.

ThermalBuck™ is an important part of an efficient building envelope.  Build green, and you’ll live green.
