EnergyWise,® a NASA spin-off company, has
successfully engineered and guaranteed tens
of thousands of homes and commercial
structures with incredible results. Foam
insulated structures require expert
engineering to perform well and
avoid problems in the future. Our
engineering has proven to be un-
matched for over thirty years.
“We had the independence to test what worked
and what didn’t,” Rue explained. “What we found
was that R-values don’t mean much because
they’re strictly a measure of conduction.”
“There are four things you want to work in
harmony,” Rue said, “the thermal envelope,
caulking, the air infiltration package, and
properly sized mechanics.”
With R-values representing just one of the three means of heat transfer – conduction, convection and thermal radiation – EnergyWise sought a better approach to insulation, specifically in the form of spray foam.
Air infiltration is another area in which Rue and
Energy Wise see misconceptions. Specifically, the
company addresses the concept of make-up air
in a different way than the industry at large.
Many new homeowners are disappointed with
results in energy efficiency and comfort even though
they have incorporated a foam insulation package
into their design. It’s sad, but true.
EnergyWise mechanical engineering is very
affordable and offers the perfect solution and
with a written performance guarantee!
“Polyurethane foam is the only insulation we
know of that addresses all three forms of heat
transfer,” said Rue.
“Most houses don’t need make-up air, because
you have enough leakage at the windows and
doors,” said Rue, noting that this is a completely
divergent, albeit more efficient, concept from
current common practices.
Our proprietary space age engineering software and mechanical layout
services are designed exclusively for
foam insulated structures. We correctly size and engineer each mechanical
system for proper air distribution, thus
preventing problems such as improperly
sized units, moisture issues, temperature
Having settled on a properly robust material
with which to engineer thermal envelopes,
EnergyWise could design mechanical systems
to its desired efficiency with what it calls a
The periodic opening of doors and windows,
when combined with their air leakage rates
when closed, introduces enough fresh air to
make up for a tightly engineered building
All engineered duct layouts are
reviewed and can be stamped by
Dr. Michael R. Busby, our Chief of
Engineering, an MIT Graduate, PhD, PE
and former NASA Rocket Scientist, to
ensure optimal performance.
Anything less is simply guesswork.

insulation we know of that addresses
all three forms of heat transfer.”

“EnergyWise homes perform so well
that the money my customers save in
energy is enough to cover up to two
of their mortgage payments per year.”

The Decision To Use Energy Wise
Spray Foam Insulation Should Be A No-Brainer!
Energy Wise spray foam is fast becoming the choice of builders and homeowners across the nation. Because Energy Wise SPF’s patented process makes it
inherently fire resistant, it doesn’t require the addition of expensive chemical
fire retardant coatings. As a result, you save time and money.
In addition, Energy Wise SPF has the highest green content (up to 25%) of any
spray foam available while providing excellent yield. Energy Wise SPF is currently available in a 0.5 pcf formulation, boasts R-values of up to 3. 7 per inch,
is VOC and formaldehyde free and is virtually odorless.
When Energy Wise spray foam is used with the Energy Wise HVAC engineering package, we are able to offer customers an ultra energy efficient
combination with guaranteed results. No one else comes close!
