Air Barrier Return on Investment
Official Report on Efficiency
In 2016 the report was published as the State Building Energy Efficiency Program, and featured 196 pages of information and recommendations.
Efficient Systems = Double Savings
In other words, efficient systems in State buildings have proven to provide double savings:
- The buildings cost less to heat & cool
- Since the mechanical systems don’t carry such a heavy load, they last longer and require less maintenance
Here is an excerpt from the report:
“Generally for every dollar leveraged on energy engineering during design, it can be expected that a minimum of ten dollars will be saved in energy costs savings and/or operational and maintenance cost savings over the life of the building.”
Bonus: Hidden Savings
AeroBarrier is an installation that takes less than three hours for a typical new home. Compared with the labor-intensive methods of air control that we often see (think of the man hours needed to caulk and spray foam an entire house), AeroBarrier offers an automated system that allows us to get in and out. Most installs take less time than sitting through a movie.
On top of the other financial benefits, the end result is that AeroBarrier keeps your project on schedule and doesn’t cost you any unexpected interest expense.
