Leader in AeroBarrier. Results Guaranteed.

Delaware promotes sustainable building practices for new construction homes.

AeroBarrier is the only method to reach any level of air tightness, the first time, every time.

Delaware has recognized the importance of sustainable development and has implemented several initiatives and programs to encourage and incentivize sustainable building practices. AeroBarrier provides an effective an efficient path to reaching any level of air tightness needed to achieve these program requirements.

We connect our patented technology to your home via a modified blower to pressurize and distribute the sealing formula. The pressure carries our non-toxic, water-based formula throughout the home and effectively seals any leak by using the very air that is leaking out of the home, thereby finding any leak point; visible or not.

Why Choose AeroBarrier?

There are several incentives in Delaware that encourage builders to construct energy-efficient homes.
  1. Federal Tax Credits: As part of the Inflation Reduction Act, the Section 45L Tax Credit for Energy Efficient New Homes has been extended and updated. For homes built after January 1, 2023, the base-level tax credit is tied to meeting ENERGY STAR program requirements. The tax credit amounts are:
  • Single-Family New Homes: $2,500 for meeting ENERGY STAR program requirements.
  • Manufactured Homes: $2,500 for meeting the most recent ENERGY STAR Manufactured New Homes program requirements
  • Multifamily: $500 for meeting the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction National program requirements. A larger tax credit of $2,500 is available for multifamily projects that meet prevailing wage requirements​.
  1. Energize Delaware Home Performance: This program offers incentives to offset the cost of making a home more energy-efficient. Homeowners and renters (with the property owner's permission) who meet certain requirements can participate. The benefits include significant incentives to offset upgrade costs, average utility cost savings of 20% or more, improved comfort, and decreased greenhouse gas emissions. Incentives are capped at 50% of the total installed cost up to the incentive level indicated​.
  2. Market Demand: There is a rising market demand in Delaware for energy-efficient and environmentally friendly homes. Prospective homebuyers actively seek out features that promote energy efficiency, lower energy bills, enhance indoor comfort, and minimize their ecological impact. Delaware builders incorporating sustainable practices, such as AeroBarrier, can effectively set themselves apart in the market and cater to the increasing demand for high-efficiency homes, attracting environmentally conscious buyers.
  3. Long-Term Cost Savings: AeroBarrier enables the creation of a tightly sealed building envelope, reducing air leakage and improving insulation effectiveness. This results in decreased energy consumption for heating and cooling purposes, leading to substantial long-term cost savings for homeowners. By offering homes with lower operating costs, builders in Delaware can strengthen the value proposition of their properties and appeal to budget-conscious buyers.
Did you know?

In June of 2020 Delaware adopted the 2018 IECC requiring all newly constructed homes to pass 3 ACH50 blower door test.

Achieving a blower door test result of 3 ACH50 (air changes per hour at 50 Pascals) can be challenging but is not impossible, and the pay off you achieve in energy efficiency makes it totally worth the effort. It requires careful attention to building design, construction techniques, and the implementation of proper air sealing measures. Builders need to pay close attention to details and ensure a comprehensive air barrier throughout the building envelope to minimize air leakage.

This is why AeroBarrier is such an attractive solution for builders in the state of New Jersey. If you would like to explore this option for your projects, contact us to discuss our demo and pilot project opportunities.
