CMC Energy Services completed an overhaul of the lighting equipment at Trumbull Gardens, an income-eligible community located in Bridgeport, CT.
The project, funded through a partnership between the Park City Communities and United Illuminating (UI), under the EnergizeCT Multi-Family Initiative, is expected to help Park City Communities reduce their energy costs, improve visibility in poorly lit areas, and reduce annual lighting-related maintenance expenses.
The state of Connecticut now enforces the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as part of the Connecticut State Building Code for residential and commercial construction. As part of this code, duct testing is a mandatory process and adhering to tight standards for duct leakage is specified for all new construction and retrofit projects.
The code is significantly tighter than previous requirements. For example, a home built to meet the new code will need to be almost 60% tighter in terms of envelope air leakage and 50% tighter for air duct leakage than a home built prior to the fall of 2016.
Meeting these stringent specifications and verification tests is very difficult without extra consideration during construction to make the envelope and duct systems tighter. Aeroseal technology helps contractors meet code requirements as well as the required verification tests.
Whether you are a property manager looking to reduce operational costs, a building contractor needing to meet tight building code specifications, or an HVAC business owner that wants an easy entry into the growing home performance market, CMC Energy Services has a proven solution.
CMC is helping turn property managers into heroes by enabling them to save significantly on their monthly heating and cooling costs. Our number one weapon against rising energy costs is Aeroseal technology. Leakage in Connecticut-area buildings is estimated to be 20% – 40% of wasted energy – an amount that can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars annually.
If you are a building contractor in the state of Connecticut you know that meeting building code requirements has just gotten much tougher.
CMC can help you easily meet both of these requirements with Aeroseal. Aeroseal’s computerized process tests leakage rates before and after each sealing project, providing an official computerized certificate of the results. Aeroseal is so effective at sealing leaks that it is all but guaranteed to ensure you meet today’s super stringent building code requirements for duct leakage.
