-2″ foam roof with 10 year “no leak” warranty through Star Roofing
-Stego wrap vapor barrier under house slab . A 4″ pipe connects under the Stego vapor wrap with the exterior, at least 12″ above the house. This pipe carries radon gas and moisture-rich air to the exterior, which prevents pressure, radon and moisture build-up, while keeping them out of the home

-Entire exterior is insulated with 1″ foam, which provides a continuous r-6 insulation
-R-27 insulation rating in walls

-3,570 watt Photovoltaic system. Sun Valley Solar provided an upsized inverter, which allows the solar panels to be expanded by another 1.6 kilowatts, if the future homeowner decides to purchase an electric car. The system is sized to generate as much power as the home uses over the year. The swing of summer power use is also minimal since the load on the cooling system is about 25% of a standard new home and as low as 10% of an older block home
-All walls and ceiling space are packed full of no-VOC dense pack cellulose. (made from recycled old newspaper)

-Ductless mini-split, high-efficiency Fujitsu wall and ceiling mounted air conditioner systems
-The only ductwork is 4 and 5″ ducts for the fresh air system. Monthly maintenance savings come from much smaller air filters and a washable pre-filter. Long term savings come from reduced replacement cost and longer lifespans due to the reduced load on the system
-On the exterior, rusted steel panels with 1″ air gap provide high insulation value and deliver an exciting contemporary look with zero future maintenance (unlike common stucco or painted surfaces.)
