Company: Superior Insulated Sytems, Inc.
Established: 2007
Description: Superior Insulated Systems strives to be a good steward of the environment. Superior Insulated Systems provides their customers with an amazing key element to keep structures green. Superior Insulated Systems offers Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), derived from sustainable materials, with a high R (heat resistance) factor, which helps prevent cool air leakage in the summer and warm air leakage in the winter. The company encourages builders to share in this commitment and to adhere environmentally-friendly practices, by implementing the following suggestions in development whenever possible: When choosing a building site, Superior Insulated Systems would like to encourage homebuilders to avoid development of prime farmland, wetlands and endangered species habitats. "In-fill" properties are the best option for new homes and commercial buildings, like former parking lots, shopping malls and factories and rail yards. It is important for builders to choose high- density development (at least six units per acre.) Superior Insulated Systems would like to suggest to their customers to consider building within close proximity to public transportation to avoid driving, and within walking distance of stores, schools and parks. Riding a bicycle is a good way to run errands, and it is transportation that is healthy, free, and is better for the environment.

When building, the structure should be situated to make best use of natural daylight to reduce lighting needs. The building should take advantage of any existing breezes. Windows, skylights, light monitors, light shelves and other elements should be strategically used to bring daylight to the interior of the structure. The exterior walls, patios and other hard, flat surfaces should have shading elements, such as sunshades, canopies, vine-covered green screens and trees that are drought resistant, particularly on the southern and western facades (in the Northern hemisphere) and over windows and doors, to block hot summer sun. Uncovered, flat areas on the exterior can create heat islands. Roofing finishes should be a light-colored, heat reflecting, or a landscaped roof, to reduce heat absorption

Superior insulated Systems encourages builders to use non-toxic interior finishing materials and furnishings, like low- and zero-VOC (volatile organic compound) wall finishes and floor finishes. Wood-based features should come from rapidly renewable sources like bamboo. Wool carpeting is biodegradable and healthy. Certain recycled and salvaged materials should be used, such as tiles and countertops with considerable recycled content. Dual-glaze, low-E or double paned windows reduce heat gain in summer and heat loss during cold winter months. Windows and exterior doors should have Energy Star ratings, and they should seal their openings tightly. With stand alone, solar powered lighting systems, no wiring or electrical contractor is needed. Energy-efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) and fluorescent lighting should be used wherever possible, which outlast halogen and incandescent lights up to 20 lifetimes, and there is much less fixture upkeep.
 Efficient heating, cooling, such as a heating, ventilation and air conditioning [HVAC] system, and solar water-heating systems should be implemented. Appliances should have Energy Star ratings.

The structure should generate some of its own energy with technologies like photovoltaic systems that convert sunlight directly into electricity. More and more utility companies are offering their customers the option to purchase electricity generated by rapidly renewable resources like solar power, wind turbines, geothermal systems and biomass to power buildings and homes, which helps to combat global climate change and dependence on oil. Superior Insulated Systems suggests a water-conserving irrigation system and water-efficient kitchen and bathroom fixtures, rainwater collection and storage systems, and composting systems.

Natural ventilation (via building orientation, operable windows, fans, wind chimneys and other strategies) should bring plentiful fresh air inside the house. A split-system HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system should filter all incoming air and vent stale air outside. On a housing unit, the garage should not have any air handling equipment or return ducts, and it should have an exhaust fan. Being a good steward of the environment includes having a sustainable lifestyle: reduce, reuse and recycle! Clean with non-toxic, environmentally safe cleansers.

Some municipal governments are reducing fees or waiting periods associated with the approval process for projects that can demonstrate a commitment to sustainability. There are programs available that will assist projects that are still in the planning stages to gain the necessary approvals as expediently and cost-effectively as possible. The benefits of going green are vast. Implementing green strategies into construction and green living practices result in lower operating costs and increased asset value, conservation of energy and water, reduced waste sent to landfills, better health and safety for occupants and reduced harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
