Project Information

On January 3, 2019, the PBS program This Old House aired an episode featuring the use of a breakthrough envelope sealing technology called AeroBarrier. Viewers saw how AeroBarrier quickly and effectively seals tight the structural envelope of a home during a major renovation project.

“When it comes to indoor comfort, air quality, and energy efficiency, few things, if any, have a greater impact on homes and apartment buildings than a tight building envelope,” said Ken Summers, principal of Comfort Institute, an international home performance research and training organization. “This episode looks at a new approach to envelope sealing that could make high-performance buildings much more affordable and change the very way homes are being built.

Aired on January 3, 2019, This Old House Episode 1708/3808 entitled “Air Tight House” featured the AeroBarrier technology being used to seal the building envelope of a century-old New England cottage. Replacing a myriad of traditional sealing methods with a single-step application, the AeroBarrier technology is used to help builders quickly and cost-effectively meet the ultra-high efficiency requirements needed to qualify the renovated home for net-zero certification.

Project Information

Goal: Find a new construction strategy that can be standard on each build while remaining market competitive (affordable).

Results: Decreased ACH from 2.6 to 0.6 within 90 minutes. This reduction in energy demand means very little solar is required to reach zero energy.

For 30 years, New Tradition Homes has led the Washington home building market, constructing over 5000 single-family homes. They are recognized as a top builder in the state based on volume, and are known nationally as a leader in building energy efficient homes.

Some builders claim to build energy efficient homes, but very few build to the level of New Tradition. All New Tradition homes are certified ENERGY STAR and Built Green Washington 3-star –the only high-volume builder in the state to do so. This commitment to excellence is reflected in company values, which emphasize quality, durability, health, and innovation.
