  • ENRGY 3.E Polyisocyanurate Board Insulation
    Johns Manville Corporation
    ENRGY 3.E is a polyisocyanurate foam board insulation with no halogenated flame retardants—the first in the industry. Instead of using the standard TCPP, or Tris (1-chloro-2-propyl) phosphate, ENRGY 3.E uses a non-halogenated organo-phosphorus monomer to provide an insulation board with a Class A fire rating. The chemistry of this is proprietary and has not been evaluated by third-party groups, but Johns-Manville has provided information indicating that it is a safer alternative to TCPP and binds much more directly to the foam insulation. This roofing insulation has glass reinforced faces, an aged R-value of 5.7 per inch, and is available in Grade 2 (20 PSI) and Grade 3 (25 PSI) densities.

    Build Equinox
    Build Equinox’s Conditioning Energy Recovery Ventilator (CERV) is an energy recovery ventilator that also monitors indoor air quality. Engineered for residential use, the CERV provides approximately 3,800 BTU/hr heating and 5,500 BTU/hr cooling capacities while monitoring inside and outside temperatures and relative humidity. The unit Fresh Air Control Module monitors interior carbon dioxide and VOC levels and, using preset indoor air quality set points (in parts per million), adjusts fresh air flow accordingly to maximize energy efficiency, air circulation in the home, and fresh air flow.

    Proctor Engineering Group, Ltd.
    Proctor Engineering Group manufactures products that improve the performance of air conditioners in dry climates, including the Western Cooling Control (WCC) system. Air conditioners are designed for humid climates, but in dry climates dehumidification is less important so the WCC allows the fan to run longer than standard AC controls to take advantage of cooling that is still present after the compressor turns off, saving up to 15% in energy, according to the company. The company also offers its Concept3 variable speed, electronically commutated motor and controls for furnaces and air handlers, which can reduce fan energy consumption by 50%. It can be climate optimized for greater dehumidification in humid climates and better cooling in dry climates, and it can accept humidistat input for improved efficiency in mixed climates.

    By using a powerful blast of air to blow off water droplets, the XLerator electric hand dryer dries hands in 10–15 seconds, drawing 1,500 watts instead of the usual 2,200 watts. XLerator is available in all voltages; 110/120V, 208V, 220-240V, and 277V and the noise level is 80 dB. The company also offers the XLeratoreco, which draws only 500 watts because it does not use heated air. Both are available with an optional HEPA Filtration System that removes 99.9% of bacteria and particles at 0.3 microns from the air stream. A kit is available for recessing the units in compliance with ADA.

    Wausau Window and Wall Systems
    Wausau’s S.E.A.L. (sound, energy, air, and light) window system installs as a retrofit on the interior of existing weather-tight commercial windows or curtainwalls to improve their thermal and acoustic performance. They have a thin profile to fit within existing frames and can be accessed for cleaning via a lockable side-hinged mechanism. A variety of glazing options are available, including laminated glass, polycarbonate, dual-glazed, low-e coatings, and security glazing. Performance of the window assemblies will vary depending on existing glazing and frame. Venetian blinds that sit between the existing window and S.E.A.L. system can also be specified. Wausau recommends a sample S.E.A.L. window be installed for a “seasonal cycle” to ensure that the system will perform as intended. S.E.A.L. comes with a limited 10-year warranty.
