Burlingame, Calif., met the standards required to be a
Preferred Contractor for the manufacturer’s Energy Cost Savings Guarantee
program. Requirements include a commitment to the building science behind the
program, an established business practice and recognized community involvement.
The Energy Cost Savings Guarantee is a systems approach to
residential energy efficiency which combines an appropriately designed HVAC
system with spray foam insulation installed by an energywise Preferred
Contractor. The guarantee is backed by Bayer MaterialScience to provide
homeowners a substantial reduction in energy usage.
Of the 40,000 plus homes designed and built using the
guarantee, annual heating and cooling cost savings are commonly more than 50%
versus conventional construction.
“We are aggressively pursuing our mission to bring practical
energy-efficiency solutions to homeowners, and having SDI as a Preferred
Contractor in a critical market like San Francisco is a win all the way
around,” said Renee Zierden, general manager, BaySystems. “We know California residents
already embrace sustainability, so we are confident the energywise Energy Cost
Savings Guarantee will be an attractive option for conscientious homeowners.
SDI is also anxious to educate area builders, architects and developers about
the many benefits of spray polyurethane foam insulation, making this is an
excellent opportunity to positively impact the full life-cycle of residential
