Subject: "PAR/PAC™ GETS STRAPPED IN ALASKA"

Dear Richard:

As owner and manager of Arctic Energy Systems, I have assisted in the design and construction of numerous energy efficient homes in Alaska's far North for over 20 years. Building to extremes in Alaska's arctic has provided me with a unique testing ground for modern energy efficient building methods and materials, such as the Par/Pac™ cellulose insulation system.

When redesigning my own home (10,000+ degree days), I discovered that after twenty years of offering technical advice on energy efficiency to others, I had to struggle for months selecting an INSULATION SYSTEM for my own home. I'm an asthma sufferer so I needed an airtight insulation system to ensure the structure would not LEAK in a cold, windy climate. We needed to guarantee against cold spots in the wall that would support mold growth. Other healthy home features were to be included as well.

Par/Pac™ dense packed recycled cellulose insulation system, licensed to Thermo-Kool of Alaska (call for more information, 907-563-3644), with its new Par/Pac™ reinforced poly, met all of our criteria.

Because of the added structural framing and steel hold downs required in new homes built in earthquake areas, and the need for higher insulation levels in the walls to achieve the 5 Star plus home energy rating, I STRAPPED the exterior walls with 2x2's for added insulation space. After installing the Par/Pac™ CELLULOSE INSULATION SYSTEM, I THEN STRAPPED the walls which allowed me to keep all the electrical wiring within the STRAPPING space. This technique protected the vapor barrier from unnecessary penetrations, and increased my R-value in the wall by 20%.

My home is heated with simple, low-cost radiant floor heating. With the increased energy efficiency of my home, I eliminated the need for fancy concrete in-floor heating systems and exotic zone controls, saving thousands of dollars over the typical floor heating installation. Yet I still have all the advantages of warm floors, thanks to a well insulated, airtight Par/Pac™ home.

I'm convinced the Par/Pac™ cellulose insulation system is a great system for a warmer, safer, and healthier home. We encourage builders to try the Par/Pac™ system. If they will do one home with dense dry packed cellulose and Par/Pac™, they will never go back to their old, archaic methods.

Sincerely,
