For building designers, developers, and owners, NRG is here to help you navigate the green path toward net zero.
You already know the first step: reduce the building energy load through passive means. (Without spending an extra dime.) The Advanced Energy Design Guides, which recommend cost effective strategies to reach net zero, recognize that placing insulation exterior to thermal mass creates the most energy efficient mass walls in all climate zones. In one block, NRG's patented insulated thermal mass features an impact-resistant masonry surface on the interior, then a layer of continuous effective R-22 integral EPS insulation exterior to that, and an architectural finish for the exterior masonry surface.
The NRG interior walls stay comfortably cool in summer and warm in winter, as the insulation helps keep the energy in the building, and holds Mother Nature at bay.
Summer: warm out, cool in
Winter NRG: cold out, warm in.
NRG's insulated thermal mass eliminates the need for additional insulation and related labor and finishing costs. NRG delivers cavity wall benefits in a single wythe wall.
Plus, NRG enables HVAC system downsizing that presents further substantial upfront cost savings.
Available in 8", 10", 12" depths, NRG gives you the thermal and moisture performance typical of cavity walls, at a considerably lower cost.
NRG buildings deliver a double pay back: NRG uses less energy, and NRG can also use less expensive energy, as NRG's exceptional thermal lag time allows you to preheat or precool your building when utility rates are lower. NRG buildings can save over fifty percent on heating and cooling energy costs, compared to conventional construction. NRG's value increases as energy prices escalate. Available in brick-look half-high and standard height. NRG is the only commercially available, fully reinforceable block that meets the ASHRAE definition of continuous insulation: "insulation that is continuous across all structural members without thermal bridges..." . NRG currently saves money and energy in well over a hundred buildings, including big box retail, government, military, educational, industrial, US Postal Service, US Border Patrol, office, single-family residential, multi-unit condos, seven-story senior housing, gymnasiums, refrigerated warehousing, and a 10,000 seat arena. Thank you for taking a look at NRG for your next building project. NRG is listed on GreenSpec.
