|This is the next generation of low energy
residence. It takes our typical R 30 wall assembly, and raises it to R
This system achieves the high insulation levels
of double wall framing -- without the increased labor costs of constructing
double-thickness walls onsite. You gain the benefits of increased quality
control and maximum cost-efficiency.
doubling the thickness of the walls
to 12" deep
using "Blown-In-Bat" insulation in a pre-
manufactured wall stud which can be delivered to the site as a completed
unit by the truss manufacturer.
A traditional vapor barrier and
barrier are built in, as well as a layer of exterior rigid mineral-wool
insulation to reduce thermal bridging through the wall and provide a rain
This superior wall assembly is then combined
with triple-glazed windows which have two low-"E" coatings, argon
charging and non conductive edge spacers -- all of which significantly
reduce heat loss.
Two layers of drywall are used to
create additional "thermal mass" in the wall. This then works to store
internal gains and reduces internal temperature swings.
These super insulated homes also incorporate
our leading-edge mechanical systems, which can include such elements
combination heating systems,
whole-house ventilation with heat recovery,
hybrid passive systems
in-floor forced air distribution,
masonry heaters, etc.
In other words, Just Homes' "Super-Insulated
Buildings" offer you all of the industry's leading-edge technologies for
energy conservation and maximum comfort. All you have to worry about
is setting the thermostat!
