SUBJECT: NO FURNACE . . . NO KIDDING!
I have been building low-energy airtight homes since 1984.
In february of 1994, I began using Par/PacTM Cellulose Insulation
System for sidewall and cathedral ceiling insulation. I feel
the Par/PacTM System contributes greatly to my low-energy
system by lowering the heating load of the home in two ways:
(1) It contributes to my airtight system by reducing air infiltration/Exfiltration,
(2) It raises the R-value of my insulation throughout my entire
my homes typically test with a blower door at .5 to .7 air
changes per hour at 50 pascals! Par/PacTM also contributes
to my airtight system. It helps my whole
house ventilation system work more efficiently, making my
homes more comfortable and healthy.
I dont know if i can heat my homes with a candle
but by lowering the heat load in my homes...
I have not installed a furnace in any of my new homes since
I use the domestic hot water heater as the heat source for
all my heating systems. Forced air, baseboards or in-floor
radiant. I have completely eliminated the need for a furnace
in all my homes in 7800 degree days!
My homes also conform to the E.P.A. energy star program and
one of my homes was rated by the hers at 93.7
five star plus! THe highest rating home in Wisconsin (and
it does not have a furnace)!
I always bid my homes as a conventional home and offer the
low-energy system as an option on my proposal. the option
for as more durable, safer, healthier, efficient and affordable
home is always added to the contract by the buyer. in simple
terms, the energy savings for heating and cooling the homes
pays for the option in 3-5 years!
Today, my homes are 100% cellulose and the results are astounding.
I will continue to market and build my homes with cellulose
and the Par/PacTM system because If it works, dont
