Several local companies helped us succeed in this project. We would like to thank them for their work:
Weatherseal Insulation installed "all-borate" cellulose in both the walls and the attic. They used three different techniques, including damp-spray, dense-pack, and loose fill!
Airflow Systems, Inc. installed the HVAC system according to specifications. Note that they are the only Energy Star certified HVAC company in our area / region. They used a large quantity of mastic to reach duct leakage targets!
Think Little, LLC acted as the energy consultant. This description doesn't begin to describe their work, which included energy modeling, HVAC design (Manual J and Manual D), blower door testing, HVAC commissioning, HERS rating, Earthcraft certification, Energy Star certification, and the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home application.
Finally, we're pleased to report the homeowners electric bills for the summer months; the average monthly bill on this all-electric house was $64.44.
