Realizing Big Energy Savings
Incorporating Dow insulation and sealant products throughout the home has yielded significant savings in the Revitalize Home. How much? 30%
To see how the home would perform in other climate zones, we researched average energy use (in millions of Btu per year) for a home of this size, taking into account heating, cooling, water heating and plug-load consumption.
Then, using REM rate, we factored in a comparable amount of insulation and air sealing, and estimated the annual savings that could be achieved in 11 cities in the United States and seven cities in Canada.
Bottom line: Wherever your home is, Dow’s products and solutions for energy efficient retrofitting can help improve your, or your client’s, home’s energy efficiency – and make it a more comfortable place to live for years to come.
The Revitalize Home also features the Remote Energy Monitoring System (REMS), which is a revolutionary breakthrough in home energy management. The dashboard-type monitoring system is an affordable solution that allows the homeowner to pinpoint where energy is being used – and wasted. The system uses a unique combination of circuit- and appliance-level monitoring to provide energy analytics and recommendations that are accessible through an easy-to-use Internet interface.
