A recently constructed home in southeast Louisiana is eye-catching because of its unique and striking design, but its appeal goes way beyond the cosmetic. Perched on the water, the home is an impressive combination of luxury and practical achievements. There is definitely the ultimate luxury in everything you see at the Pond House, but there are also many great elements that aren’t quite so visible upon first glance.
The home was designed to achieve net zero status, meaning it produces as much energy as it consumes. It uses recycled water collected from the roof, and also has a solar energy system. There is also a thermal heat pump and LED lighting system. One of the main components that help establish the property’s energy efficiency is the use of spray foam insulation.
Spray foam helps keep the three-story home comfortable, while also reducing air loss and the wasted energy it represents. In that area of Louisiana, residents often want their homes to be an escape from the heat, so this insulation helps keep the interior space cool and comfortable, without the soaring utility bills this level of cooling often causes.
Intech Equipment & Supply has all of the spray foam insulation equipment that contractors and building professionals need to create energy efficient homes of all types.
