Salem Design’s “Design and Construction
Energy Smart” Package Home

Our homes include the key features of an Energy Star Qualified home.

1. Effective insulation
2. High-performance windows
3. Tight construction and ducts
4. Efficient heating and cooling equipment
5. Efficient appliances and lighting.

Our Insulation & Radiant Barriers exceed the Energy Star requirements. In addition to the R13 wall Batts, all exterior walls are sealed with radiant barrier ˝ foam board. This doubles the insulation value on the 8-10% of a homes exterior (the studs, corners & Ts). Radiant Barrier decking is also used. Air infiltration is controlled three ways: all exterior seams on the radiant barrier board are taped; windows are taped with asphalt tape and spray foam is used around windows, plates & all plate penetrations, all exterior doors are also foam filled. R50 Insulation is blown in the attic (17”). Performance Framing Techniques allows insulation to be packed into crevices that otherwise would be only wood or air (Ts & corners).

Windows exceed Energy Star requirements Our homes use vinyl windows with 5/8” glazing and low-E coating, the vinyl frame acts as a thermal break in the windows. Plus we use Double low E tint windows on all west elevation windows.

Heating and Air System exceed Energy Star requirements. A super efficient reverse cycle heat pump efficiently heats and cools our homes. Our homes features include Super High SEER Ratings of 16, engineered systems, with separate zones. Super Duct R8+ is used & engineered to the proper size. To reduce energy loss all joints and duct ends are sealed with Mastic and Metal backed tape. Return air in each room and adjustable levers on all grills.

Energy Star Rated appliances Dishwasher, microwave and high efficiency 50 gallon storage water heaters.

The lighting package includes compact florescent bulbs wherever possible throughout the home, and Ceiling Fans help circulate air efficiently.
