Summer is here!!!
This is what your hot roof looks like with an infrared camera.  It's emitting infrared heat at 186,000 miles per second,
the speed of light.  One hour after this image was captured the insulation will be glowing from trapped heat.  It's starting to in this image and this was captured at 9am.  

This recent email should be read before purchasing attic insulation to keep your house cooler:

"I have a house in New Mexico and I'm at my wits' end. I've had a lot of
insulation work done in my attic and it's now R-50, but the house is
still incredibly uncomfortable in summer. In fact after adding 10" of
fiberglass to the attic floor, I spent more money on cooling than I did
during the prior summer, and the house was much less comfortable, too."
Nate C.

We have developed and manufacture a product to prevent this, here are
some of the Benefits:

This is Thermal Control Membrane, the most effective attic insulation in the world for hot or cold climates and the only radiant barrier with a lifetime performance warranty!  How does it work? Rather than resist the flow of heat like conventional fibrous insulation, TCM changes the direction of heat.  The results?  Lower energy consumption, doubles the life of the HVAC equipment, increases comfort Click here

Load Controller

 Attention SRP residential customers considering solar PV.  This is designed for the E-32 solar rate which SRP has implimented for Solar PV customers.  It's also very effective controlling APS demand charges. 

 

This relay box is mounted to the right side of the main panel.  This is considered a standard installation.

This is the control module being wired to the high voltage loads like water heaters and clothes dryers.  The HVAC equipment is controlled via WIFI thermostats that communicate with the System 3000 and collects data such as run time, time to reach target temperature and uploads this information to the cloud.

This powerful new load controller from Inergy Systems is a cloud based system that offers a dynamic, real time view of not only how your home uses power but when and how much. 
Demand levels as well as load run times and can be viewed or modified in real time.

Roof Vents
While visiting the Texas A&M energy laboratory years ago I saw this vent on the bench which was being tested.  I immediately recognized the design to be far superior to anything we had been using previously` and reached out to the inventor to be first in line to offer these on our web site.

Whether your needs are for a passive roof vent or a vent to mount one of our imported German fans under, these vents will meet and/or exceed your expectations.  The vents to be used in conjunction with a power fan have an inverted cone under the flat top to better transition the air out through the sides and reduced turbulence and sound. 

 

When considering the most effective method of removing heat or moisture understanding how attic venting
affects your home is important.

TCM Roof Underlayment System: Keep the heat out before it gets into the attic.  A fraction of the cost of
spraying closed cell foam in the attic Click here

 

                         

Shown here is a new gymnasium for the Phoenix Christian Assembly Church which is wrapped in Diamondback Stucco Foamtm and Thermal Control Membranetm (TCM/4).  The attic has R30 cellulose covered by Thermal Control Membrane (TCM/6). This combination allowed the church to use only 10 tons of the 20 tons installed to cool this structure.

NOTE: You must downsize the HVAC at least 40% when using this construction detail when specifying Diamondback Stucco Foam and Thermal Control Membrane in the attic.

"But how much can I really save, many companies have wild claims about savings?"

Here's an acutal bill one year after our Attic Solutions Package 

" 

    

This is a 2800sq foot Phoenix home that had not only had high energy bills but even at this cost per month the a/c units ran non stop and at the peak of the summer could not cool below 81F.  Hot rooms, high bills, blasts of hot air out of the ducts when the units started, dust problems, duct leaks are not problems, they are symptoms of existing problems.  We have turn key solutions to all of these problems.   It all starts with an $80 home inspection.  A BPI certified home inspector will evaluate your home, identify problems and write you a succinct proposal for the solutions.

 

 

NEW CONSTRUCTION MULTI-FAMILY

 

This is the Frank Luke Senior Center Phoenix Arizona 650 North 16th Street
This building was designed by Biltform Architecture.

 

 

Frank Luke under construction. Note the TCM and Diamondback stucco foam being installed.

 

 

Frank Luke Completed.  The most efficient multi-family building in Arizona.

 

This three story assisted care center is going to be comfortable and easy to cool due to the installation of Thermal Control Membrane and our new Diamondback Stucco Foam product on the walls and attic.  This combination effectively keeps heat from moving into or out of the building through the walls.  We used a similar system when we applied our technology to the most efficient home ever built on ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition. 

 

Tired of your kitchen looking like a dungeon?  Why turn on hundreds of watts of electricity just
to make a sandwhich?  Virtually every day  there is sunshine on your roof above your kitchen.
We can let the light in without the heat by installing a tubular skylight. See images below:

The time has come to move quickly on making decisions to reduce our consumption of finite, fossil fuels, propagate renewable energy and nurture our planet.  All of us are caretakers and have a responsibility to make changes at every level and inculcate into our children and others, by example, a move in this direction. 

We must immediately address archaic building codes which are not climate specific and begin using available proven technologies as found on this site.  We need to move now to build more energy efficient, sustainable and comfortable homes and buildings.  Our proven products will help you meet these goals.  Before building, buying or remodeling, read this web site thoroughly and please be prepared to "think outside the box".
