PROPRIETARY PATENTED SUSTAINABLE BUILDING PRODUCTS
A compilation of videos we have compiled of our discoveries, sustainable building
procedures and our proprietary products being installed. This is great resource for
do it yourself home owners, architects, builders and those living (or planning on) in
off grid homes. Please allow a few moments for the thumbnails to load below.
Our outdated building codes need to address this stored heat problem when using
insulation in a hot sunny climate. Insulation is designed to keep heat in, not heat out.

Once a house has been built, the only way to prevent this heat storage is to install our
Thermal Control Membrane product above the ceiling. In colder climates, where keeping
heat in is desired, our new perforated TCM should be installed on top of the existing insulation.
Effective and reliable attic venting can be accomplished by an efficient German attic fan.
This is one of our lastest products in our growing Thermal Control Membrane line of products.
Shown here is a flat black finished bottom surface specifiied by many commercial interior
designers and architects. Not only does it mee the requirments for appearences, there is no
commecial deck insulation that outperforms Thermal Control Membrane. Changes the direction
of infrared heat from the hot deck during the summer and works like a Thermos bottle keeping
heat in during the winter. (also available in white). Both colors are reinforced so after being
stapled up it won't degrade and fall off like many others.
This is a standard connection between an attic mounted air handler and the coil box.
Obviously not very efficient and brings in dust and pollutants in the attic right in the
supply air going into the house. Is your home always dusty? An hour after you dust?
Look here first.
This is very typical of what we find during our NRG Audits with regard to how heat pumps are
typically installed in hot climates. Not much attention is given to duct leaks which put the house
into either a positive or negative pressure.
We now recommend using Ductless Mini Splits rather than replacing an entire unit.
This homeowner had several complaints after moving into this used home: The APS
bills were too high, the house was hard to cool and when the next door neighbors were
having a barbque, it smelled like it was inside the house. A quick check on the roof
revealed some startling discoveries. All problems solved with a few screws and a
tube of 25 year silcone in the right places.
