Our mission is to improve energy efficiency, comfort, safety and interior air quality for residential homes and commercial buildings in the South Florida area. For the nation, our mission is to preserve its energy resources. For our planet, it is to reduce homes’ negative impact on the environment.
The mission of our energy management consultants is to help our customer to take the right decisions by providing objective information and education.
We accomplish our mission with science, experience, education and ethics.
Owner / CEO
Aldo is our contractor. Our Building Insulation Contractor is a Certified Class I Existing Residential Rater that is issued by the State of Florida Energy Ratings System. Being a previous physics professor provides him with a strong background in physics and gives him the best tools to understand the complexity behind the comfort, interior air quality, and energy efficiency expected in a residential or commercial building. He continuously participates in conventions, courses and training classes to be up to date with the most modern practices, changes in codes and regulations, new materials and more. The starting point for Aldo’s approach is always to prioritize the “customer’s concerns and goals.” These concerns and goals are the first priority before conducting a building inspection. After the building inspection is completed he then proposes an action plan to bring the most cost efficient solution in order to solve the customer’s problems and reach their goals.
All Star Team
When you see workers installing any insulation in a building, at first glance, it looks like something simple. This process will produce the desire outcome “reduction in heat flow” between the exterior and the interior of the building that will bring comfort, energy efficiency, and interior air quality.
But is not so simple.
Behind the act to install any insulation material, there is a long chain of steps aimed at achieving a goal: How to bring energy efficiency, comfort and interior air quality for the inhabitants of a building?
There is a theoretical base usually called Building Science that helps to produce and improves insulation materials, understand the physics of heat or humidity dynamics, installation procedures, there are codes and regulations, construction laws to respect, employee training, customer care and much more.
In order to achieve our mission our staff follows a never ending learning process that will improve A Best Insulation’s knowledge and skills. Our knowledge is gathered by attending energy conservation seminars, attending specialized courses, meetings with energy conservation experts and staying updated with scientific publications. Furthermore, we gain valuable skills through “on the job” experiences in South Florida, participating in supplier’s products application training, and factory visits.
We follow guidelines from leading agencies and organizations such as:
- U.S. Department of Energy, (DOE)
- Residential Energy Service Network, (RESNET)
- Florida Solar Energy Center, (FSEC)
- International Code Council, (ICC)
- International Building Code (IBC)
- International Residential Code (IRC)
- Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA)
- American Society for Testing Materials, (ASTM)
- American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers, (ASHRE)
- North American Insulation Manufacturers Association, (NAIMA)
- Insulation Contractors Association of America, (ICAA)
Home Energy Audit: to achieve our mission we apply science principles to buildings and use sophisticated diagnosis equipment, including a blower door, duct blaster, smoke wand and infrared cameras. This equipment will provide valuable information about your home’s energy consumption.
Review of data: We view and analyzes your home as a system. This system is composed of interrelated components such as the building shell, air conditioning equipment, windows, floor, roof, etc. With this view we can evaluate cost-effective solutions for your concerns.
Apply cost effective solutions: Installing attic insulation, upgrading the air conditioning system, sealing home air infiltration, applying a radiant barrier to the bottom of the roof, and fixing duct leakages are some of many energy-improvements that we could apply to your home.
Verification: How can you verify that the job has been completed correctly? A Best Insulation will provide the customer with infrared pictures, readings of the final duct performance test, readings of your homes blower door test, and color pictures that will verify that what we have installed what you agreed on.
