At Ecologic we pride ourselves in offering up to date knowledge of the latest building science principles as it relates to energy efficiency. Providing education on how to reduce home and business operating costs through the use of insulation, air sealing and HVAC systems is where we derive our greatest job satisfaction. The transformative nature of good insulation work can change perceptions of what a comfortable home and an acceptable utility bill should be. We're passionate about the products and services we offer, and with over 40 years of industry experience amongst our team, nobody understands the uses and limitations of insulation more than us.
Our proficiency in the new construction, (particularly custom residential) segment of construction has garnered a lot of attention for us in Southern New England. Attention which has earned us placement in nationally and locally syndicated magazines as well as performing work on a project featured on A&E television. We've been working in alliance with architects and general contractors to develop a value added approach to insulation. Nowhere, has foam been more relevant than in the custom home market where designers demand high performing products that allow complete design freedom.
Existing home attic spaces present the best place to begin looking for energy efficiency improvements. They are typically readily accessible, represent a large part of the total surface area of the envelope and provide an opportunity to greatly increase the efficiency and comfort of the home. Sealing these spaces will help maintain the thermal energy in the home by cutting off a key contributor to heat loss through convective loops. In addition, with most Southern New England homes built prior to 1980, the quantity and type of insulation materials found is sub-standard.
Our time spent in the field, working with HVAC engineers, architects and general contractors has exposed us to the right and wrong ways to approach energy efficiency design for residential and commercial construction. Additionally, our certifications with the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and the Energy Star HERS program provide us with a foundation of basic principles necessary to provide guidance for your next project. Measured performance through the use of diagnostic equipment is the other essential component to a successful design / build.
Already enclosed wall cavities can be retro-fitted with pour in place foam insulation by installing through the exterior or interior. We have developed tools and methods of drilling and finding wall studs to ensure every square inch of wall cavity is filled. No other wall insulation option provides more R-value, air seals and resists moisture better than polyurethane foam insulation. In addition, pour in place polyurethane foam insulation will not settle, sag or change dimensional stability over time.
Building Science, as it relates to thermal energy transfer, represents the foundation of our business model. Saying our products outperform conventional insulation materials holds no weight without the science to back it up. Understanding and applying the concepts of thermal energy transfer is how Ecologic is able to deliver on cutting your energy bills and reducing your pollution output. Since World War II when the Federal Government mandated building code regulations to include insulation standards (R-value limits) a booming industry emerged in the US; building insulation.
If the above criteria do not apply, open cell foam insulation is an excellent alternative to closed cell because of its ability to custom apply to a variety of building geometry shapes, its ability to air seal and provide higher R-value over conventional insulation materials such as fiberglass and cellulose.
Federal and state governments have recognized the benefits of improved building efficiency for their communities. As a result, tax credits and rebates are readily available and easy to access. Energy providers are also on board in offering rebate programs promoting energy efficiency. Improving the insulation value of your home improves comfort, increases the resale value of your home, and provides financial relief for future heating and cooling bills. Low or no interest financing is also available for the purposes of improving building energy efficiency.
