Problem: When Black Timber Builders set out to complete the Donath Lake development, they intended to create the first high-end custom home development in the US meeting the criteria for passive home certification. They needed insulation contractors that knew how to get the job done, so they called on Ascend Construction to meet their high-end insulation needs.
Solution: We put together a detailed and effective plan for the Donath Lake development to achieve a very high level of energy efficiency with a focus on insulation and delivering airtightness in the home. Our team put their plan into action and insulated a vaulted ceiling cavity, the exterior framing cavities, the attic space, and interior floor cavities using Green Fiber Cellulose Insulation. We also installed Rockwool Mineral Wool Batt to insulate and reduce air leakage within the walls as well.
Problem: The Ashleys wanted a cost-effective solution to cool their home during the summer months without the expense of running air conditioning.
Solution: Ascend Construction installed an AirScape Sierra 3200 whole house fan to provide cost-effective cooling solutions for this Fort Collins, Colorado home.
Problem: The Westover household in Fort Collins, CO was experiencing huge temperature changes throughout their home and their utility expenses were extremely high.
