Home Owners

HercuWall® is the backbone of an energy efficient building envelope. The building envelope consists of the walls (HercuWall®), roof, floor slab, windows and doors that define the insulated barrier between the interior conditioned living space and the outdoor environment. Investing in an energy efficient building envelope will yield greater energy savings over the life of a home than high efficiency appliances and heating and air conditioning equipment.

HercuWall® combined with an air resistive insulation barrier in the roof and energy efficient windows and doors, will afford owners substantial energy cost savings. Smaller capacity air conditioners and heating equipment should be specified and installed. One national builder claims energy savings of 40% to 60% compared to standard construction.  

Energy efficient construction was previously reserved for custom homes and came at a heavy cost premium. Today, utilizing innovative technologies like HercuWall®, smart production builders are offering energy efficiency at or near the same price as the conventionally built homes they previously built. Leading commercial contractors have adopted similar technologies including HercuWall® to meet market expectations for energy efficiency.
