As a builder in South Carolina, 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) requirement. 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 Duke Energy HERO program is an initiative that provides incentives to builders for constructing energy-efficient homes in some parts of South Carolina. The program operates under Duke Energy Carolinas (DEC) and Duke Energy Progress (DEP), both of which offer different rebate amounts and criteria. DEC customers can earn $650 per home for when qualifying for the HERO program and up to $6,000 additional per home for HERO plus a qualifying HERS score. For DEP customers, the benefits include cash back of $750 per home for HERO only and up to $9,000 per home for HERO plus a qualifying HERS score.
To participate, builders should apply at the official Duke Energy website: duke-energyrncinfo.com
