Hy-Tech ceramic paint additive has insulating properties - Paint additive by Hy-Tech Thermal Solutions is a NASA-based technology using an exclusive blend of insulating ceramic microspheres or "vacuum beads". The inexpensive and easy-to-use product helps keep heat out in the summer and in during the winter.

There's more than one way to install a Radiant Barrier Installed properly, this radiant barrier foil helps with your home's energy effeciency.

Green Fiber - GreenFiber is the largest manufacturer of natural fiber insulation, fire and sound products. With 11 manufacturing plants located throughout the United States, GreenFiber products are sold to building supply retailers, manufactured housing builders and insulation contractors in the U.S. and Canada.

Horizon Energy Systems - Thermal Control Membrane is a multi-layered, thin film material that is very effective at controlling heat flow. It can be rolled out over your existing insulation and is impervious to gravity, dust or settling. It holds heat in during winter, keeps heat out during the summer and cuts energy costs.

Solar Gard Summer/Winter film - Low-Emissivity window film is ideal for colder climates experiencing more heating system usage than cooling, rejecting 77% of solar energy. It keeps the heat from escaping through the glass when outside temperatures are cold, while keeping the heat from entering your environment during the summer months.

Energy Efficient Solutions low cost foil insulation can dramatically cut your heating bills.

Innovative Insulation Radiant barrier insulation systems reflect radiant heat energy instead of trying to absorb it.

Industrial Nanotech Nansulate thermal insulation is easy to apply yourself and can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on in a variety of places. Nansulate provides protection against all three methods of heat transfer - conduction, convection and radiant.

Bubble Wrap Window Insulation - Cut the bubble wrap to the size of the window pane with scissors. Spray a film of water on the window using a spray bottle. Apply the bubble wrap while the window is still wet. The payback period is about 3 months.

Acrylic Window Innovations - The InnerG window is an insulative, sound deadening interior storm window made from shatter resistant acrylic plexiglas, mounted in a specially designed pvc molding with a magnetic rail. It snaps magnetically to the inside of your existing windows in seconds to reduce sound and heat transfer up to 60% and eliminate condensation, providing savings on both heating and air conditioning costs.

Aeroseal - Seals air duct leaks from the inside, using small sealant particles that deposit at the leaks without coating the interior of the duct system, providing energy savings up to 40%.

Research and Development

Directory:Conservation >What is Greensulate Insulation? - The idea behind Ecovative Design is to find new ways to insulate buildings and package material goods without the traditional use of petroleum based polystyrene/Styrofoams. Greensulate is made from local, sustainable resources such as the agricultural byproducts of rice (China), buckwheat, and cottonseed (Texas) hull. (PlanetGreen Jan. 22, 2009)
