Case Study

Near Net Zero

Building: Residential Home

Location: Arizona

Contractor: Mandalay Homes

Goal: Scale carbon neutral (or zero energy) homes and offer them as a standard feature

Before ACH: >1.4

After ACH: 0.6

Results: Can now achieve net zero with only 8 solar panels on a typical 2,000 sq ft home compared to 60 solar panels required on a code built home; cost savings of $50k.

Case Study

High Performance Homes

Building: Residential Home

Location: Seattle, WA

Contractor: Dwell Development

Goal: Find a product that can be used in both new and existing homes to help achieve an ongoing commitment to building the most high performance homes.

ACH with AeroBarrier: 0.22 ACH50

Results: Achieved a 45 HERS index pre-solar (30% better than code). Reaching .22 ACH is now easy and affordable.

Case Study

Multi-Family Passive House

Building: 6-Story Apartment

Location: New York

Architect: Chris Benedict

Goal: Meet Passive House levels after an initial failed test, and after plumbing, electrical, and sheetrock installation had been installed rendering manual sealing impractical.

Results: Using AeroBarrier, 34 units were sealed to passive house levels of 0.6ACH50 in just 8 days.

Case Study

Path to Net Zero

Building: Residential Homes

Location: Washington

Architect: New Tradition Homes

Goal: Find a new construction strategy that can be standard on each build while remaining market competitive (affordable).

Results: Decreased ACH from 2.6 to 0.6 within 90 minutes. This reduction in energy demand means very little solar is required to reach zero energy.
