Installation of the Self-Sealing Bituminous Membrane in Relation to the Drip Edge and Roof Underlayment
Installed interior removable storm window
Installer permanently labled ventilation switch
Installing a garage exhaust fan is one important step in keeping auto exhaust and other pollutants out of the home
Installing a soffit in an exterior wall
Installing air barrier above a soffit
Installing ladder blocking at interior-exterior wall intersections rather than three solid studs in the exterior wall as the supporting surface allows room for insulation in the exterior wall.
Installing transfer grilles is one way to balance pressures from room to room
Insulate the porch-attic wall making sure the insulation fully aligns with the inside wall sheathing
Insulated concrete forms are hollow foam blocks that are stacked to form walls, reinforced with plastic spacers and steel rebar, and then filled with concrete.
Insulated header made of one piece of plywood aligned with exterior wall, with room for insulation to inside
Insulated header made of two pieces of plywood that sandwich a layer of rigid foam insulation
Insulated headers can be hung with metal hangers instead of jack studs to reduce lumber usage
Insulated sheathing has been taped and sealed at seams
Insulated splines consisting of boards layered with rigid foam minimize energy loss at joints between the SIP wall panels.
Insulated whole-house fan cover
Insulating sheathing is extended up to the roof rafters and sealed around the framing with spray foam as part of this exterior wall retrofit
Insulation does not cover boot and is not sealed

Integrated collector storage (ICS) on roof
Integrated collector storage (ICS) passive solar hot water system
Interior and exterior footing drains keep moisture away from the foundation. Spray-on water proofing helps the concrete foundation walls resist moisture.
Interior non-load bearing walls are 2x4 studs spaced 24-inchon- center, can have non-structural connectors
Interior removable storm window sample

Intermittent supply and exhaust fans rated at ≤ 3 sones by manufacturer, unless rated flow ≥ 400 CFM
Internet-enabled lighting controls are part of many home automation systems and can increase safety and security as well as energy efficiency.
Joints between SIP panels can be connected with solid lumber splines or SIP panel pieces. SIP panel pieces help to ensure a continuous layer of insulation across the building shell.
Jump ducts are installed in the ceiling to connect closed rooms with open space to provide a return air path and balance air pressure
Key elements of a wall system clad with insulated vinyl siding
Kitchen exhaust properly installed and sealed with mastic
Kitchens should be equipped with an exhaust fan that vents directly outdoors
Ladder blocking where interior and exterior walls intersect uses less wood and provides more room for insulation than stacking studs in the exterior wall to nail the interior wall to.

Lapped and taped polyethylene sheeting
Lay out duct so that no radius of a bend or turn is less than the diameter of the airway
Lay out the rigid foam sheathing joints so they do not align with the window and door edges
Leaks at the air filter cover panel can draw in unconditioned or undesirable air
LED interior and exterior lighting makes a stunning display without a big energy penalty.
LED lights can be connected and controlled remotely via a communications bridge.
LEDs are especially efficient in fixtures that send light in one direction, like track lighting
LEDs cut energy costs by using less watts to produce the same amount of light as other light sources.
Lifting plates attached to the wall provide good bracing to tighten up SIP panel seams
Light tubes adjacent to unconditioned space include lens separating unconditioned and conditioned space and are fully gasketed
Light tubes are installed in hallways and closets to bring natural daylight into the home, even in areas that do not have direct windows.
Lithium-ion batteries charged by the solar photovoltaic panels provide 200 amperes of standby electricity to critical circuits in case of power failure.
Locate the fresh air intake away from pollution sources and in an easily accessible location
Low-flow water fixtures save energy and water in the kitchen and bath.
Make sure the beads of caulk are continuous the full length at each SIP panel seam, such as at the wall-roof seam, to maintain air barrier continuity
Manatee County Habitat for Humanity trains its volunteers to construct homes made of construct insulated concrete forms (ICFs).
Mandalay Homes uses information displays, equipment displays, an interactive “energy wall,” equipment modeling, and building deconstruction displays in its model homes and sales offices.
