Diversified Energy, LLC is a Home Performance Auditor & Contractor located in New Orleans specially trained and certified to perform energy audits and testing services for our Department of Energy's Energy Star Program, The Louisiana's HERO (Home Energy Rebate Option) incentive program and the New Orleans' Energy Smart rebate and discount program. Performing energy audits since 1999 Diversified Energy is focused on Residential Energy Efficiency Testing and Home Performance Contracting and Weatherization. Using a "whole house approach," Diversified Energy looks at all the components of a home -- heating/cooling, insulation levels, air infiltration, windows/doors and, most importantly, forced and passive duct leakage -- to show you exactly how to maximize your home's energy efficiency, provide a cleaner interior-air quality environment and expose any potential health & safety concerns. As a certified and accredited member of Building Performance Institute (BPI), RESNET and Energy Star Diversified Energy will utilize the latest diagnostic equipment along with strict standards to diagnose and treat your home for greater performance, comfort, health and safety.
These tests are not only recommended to New Orleans' residents who would like to decrease their utility bills, increase the comfort of their home and improve the overall health of their home but may be required and paid for in part by particular local incentive programs such as Energy Smart of New Orleans. You may save up to (and potentially more than) 30% on energy costs once Diversified Energy has diagnosed the home's energy efficiency deficiencies and recommended improvements are made.
A chemical additive formulated into either the A-side or B-side which creates bubbles that are trapped in the polyurethane as it solidifies to form foam cells. The gas produced from the blowing agent contributes to over 97% of the volume of polyurethane foam. The blowing agent can be physical or reactive in nature. The physical blowing agents (for example, liquid fluorocarbon) vaporize with the heat of the polyurethane reaction, where a reactive blowing agent (for example, water) reacts with one of the other chemicals in the formulation to produce a gas during the reaction (for example, water and isocyanate yields carbon dioxide).
SPFA believes that the path to a healthful, safe, high-quality and performing SPF installation travels through the hands of a knowledgeable, trained, experienced, and ideally PCP-certified professional contractor.
