A variety of useful. Building America provides the results of its research to help builders improve the quality and performance of new and existing homes throughout the country.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – LEED

LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

Tax Incentive Demonstrates Commitment to High Performance Homes

We now have three forces that will gradually increase buyer interest in highperformance homes: steadily increasing energy bills; quality advantages (better comfort, healthier air, more durable construction,etc.); and energy tax credits.

HPH – Builder’s Challenge

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has posed a challenge to the homebuilding industry – to build 220,000 high performance homes by 2012. The initiative is called the Builders Challenge, and homes that qualify must meet a 70 or better on the E-Scale. The E-Scale is a scale that allows homebuyers to understand – at a glance – how the performance of a particular home compares to that of others.

The Future of High Performance Building

Today’s high-performance green buildings are a significant improvement over the conventional buildings of the past. They consume significantly less energy, materials, and water; provide healthy living and working environments; and greatly improve the quality of the built environment. Although notable progress has been made in building performance, for the most part contemporary green buildings use existing materials and products; design approaches, and construction delivery systems. Ecological design, perhaps the key concept in creating high-performance buildings, is in its infancy and sorely needs articulation to be able to create truly green buildings. The concept of green building materials needs to be better defined and methods for their evaluation need to be developed. The role of nature in buildings is another one of the key areas needing development for the future of green buildings. Natural systems can provide heating and cooling, wastewater processing, stormwater uptake, food production, and a range of other services for the built environment. New energy strategies, such as ground-coupling, radiant cooling and advanced photovoltaic systems are needed to dramatically lower energy consumption and increase the use of renewable energy systems. Closing materials loops by designing buildings for deconstruction and developing disassemblable building products with recyclable materials is a barely addressed issue in the context of today’s green buildings.

NAHB – Certified Green Professional

The National Association of Home Builders’ Certified Green Professional designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. Classwork leading to the designation provides a solid background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry.

NAHB’s Model Green Home Building Guidelines

NAHB’s voluntary Model Green Home Building Guidelines are designed to be a tool kit for the individual builder looking to engage in green building practices and home builder associations (HBAs) looking to launch their own local green building programs. Since their debut in 2005, the Guidelines have helped move environmentally friendly home building concepts further into the mainstream marketplace.

  • My tenants always complained about the noise and their inconvenience during winter. So, during the summer, in order to address their concern, I went out and search the internet for reliable people who will carry out the task -This was where I found Spray Foam Insulators. I cross-referenced them in order to be sure that they are for real. So, I hired them and they worked on 4-door apartment and true enough – these people are really committed. Now I know that all the good reviews I have read on them are real!

  • Spray Foam Insulators delivered an outstanding service. I had my house’s wall cavities foam-sprayed in preparation for the winter. On top of delivering a very clean job without leaving a single mess, the staff was courteous and educated me enough on the product that they used. Now, I know that the products doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals like CFCs and all. Kudos for a job well done!

  • In an attempt to be able to save more, I tried DIY spray foaming and simply followed some videos on how to do it online since they are (as I thought it was) very easy to follow. Problem was, I wasn’t so sure about the correct mixture so it left me with brittle texture foam which in the end, I had to remove. Luckily, my brother told me to try Spray Foam Insulators. I gave them a shot and was astonished at how my basement turned out. Had I known them first, I would have not thrown away my money trying to do it on my own. Thanks!

  • I had the entire house insulated by Spray Foam Insulators and I am so happy about the decision as well as choosing them. It is my first time working with them and I am really impressed about the output. It has been 3 months since they insulated the whole place and I can really say that the savings I get from my electric bill is really something that other people should know. Aside from the convenience that you get, you’ll have savings on top of that. I don’t really have a single hesitation in my mind recommending this company.

  • What I really like best about Spray Foam Insulators is their use of environment friendly products that does not compromise our health. Being an advocate of green products, I am really pleased that these people does not only work on delivering an excellent job on carrying insulation projects but more so, on being aware of the environment impact that their product may cause. Had my small basement insulated and I can’t say anything except that it is better now during winter. On top of that, sound proofing is superb!
