Energy Saving Measures | Home Performance | Morris County NJ

 

On this project we performed a number of energy saving upgrades to improve the efficiency of the home.  With the house opened up we had the unique opportunity to address not only the mechanical components of the home but also the entire building envelope, putting our BPI Gold Star Contractor experience to work.  The first summer after project completion our customer reported significant electrical energy savings and a summer gas utility bill under $25.00!

Our measures:

 
 
Maximize R-value and air seal tight. Using Roxul insulation we were able to maximize the R-value in the existing 2x4 cavity with the added benefit of implementing non-combustible insulation. With the installation of a smart vapor barrier we created an effective air barrier with exceptional air sealing results,

On demand hot water heater.  Unlike a standard tank hot water heater that fires consistently to maintain tank temperature, our installed Navien NPE 240-A doesn't utilize any significant amount of energy unless hot water is being used.  It is also direct vented to the exterior putting the Carbon Monoxide outside and alleviating orphaned hot water heater issues such as spillage. Points for IAQ and Energy Use Reduction.

Building Envelope.  Air sealing and insulation.  In this attic crawl space we baffled, insulated and air sealed the rafters using fire rated polyisocyanurate insulation creating a insulated, conditioned crawl space. Bonus energy savings in the kitchen space below, with numerous recessed lights / building envelope penetrations.

High Efficiency Furnace and Air Conditioner.  After running a Manual J calculation accounting for our building envelope upgrades, we installed a Carrier 95.1 Efficient Furnace coupled with a 16 SEER central air system.  The system is augmented by a Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaner, a True Steam Humidifier, mastic sealed tight duct work and a Visionpro AIQ Thermostat.  Properly sized and custom controlled, this HVAC system operates at the highest levels efficiency.
