As a builder in Florida, you may wonder why you should prioritize achieving a tight blower door test result when the code only mandates a 7 ACH50 (air changes per hour at 50 pascals). There are several reasons why you should still consider aiming for a tighter building envelope... and AeroBarrier can help you get there.
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.
The Energy Star 45L program in Florida provides significant tax benefits to builders who construct energy-efficient homes. The program offers a $2,500 tax credit for single-family and manufactured homes certified as ENERGY STAR, and a $500 tax credit for multifamily homes constructed after 2020 and certified as ENERGY STAR. Builders constructing homes that meet the DOE's Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) standards can earn a $5,000 tax credit for single-family and manufactured homes, and a $1,000 tax credit for multifamily homes. If the multifamily homes are constructed with prevailing wages, the tax credits for ENERGY STAR and ZERH certifications increase to $2,500 and $5,000 respectively. These incentives are applicable to homes sold or leased from January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2032.
This is why AeroBarrier is such an attractive solution for builders in Florida. If you would like to explore this option for your projects, contact us to discuss our demo and pilot project opportunities.
