“My friend is a UT PhD student researching indoor air quality and how well a home’s barrier can keep out fine particles. We agreed to let him come today to take some tests on our house. I told him that it should be very tight because it’s new and has the spray foam insulation. He said that’s good and that he wants a range of results for his tests (this is his 15th house).
He set up a blower door test, then set some other equipment up to compare indoor and outdoor air quality over time. He said tests typically are about 3 hours and he will be able get all his readings of how much outdoor air particles have came into the house.
Unfortunately for him but great for us, he couldn’t get any readings for particles coming in from outside! He said, ‘I never retrieved an accurate reading because the house is so tight…I’ve literally measured ducts that were leakier than your entire house.’
Congrats on building a super efficient house!!”- Joe & Melissa
“We love our new home! Thanks PSW for all of the hard work and attention to detail. We were blown away by how thoughtful and committed you were throughout the whole process. Thank you again!”- Tim & Christy
“$30.02 for our first electric bill! Now, I know the solar helped out a lot, and we work hard at saving energy in our house, but we credit the many features PSW had designed into these homes for making this even remotely possible. We truly appreciate very much all the thought and efforts that went into making these homes, all the many features that contribute to low energy usage and easy livability, and all the things that are working just right. Model homes, indeed, my friends. Lifting a glass to your success and our teeny, tiny electric bill!”- Mike & Michelle
“It goes without saying, we’ve never had such a great experience purchasing a home – no hitches whatsoever. And you all are so nice!”- Paul & Kathy
“I don’t normally lend my recommendations in support of vendors, sales people and companies. I believe that if I have a positive experience they are just doing their business as I expect it. However, I feel so strongly about my experience with PSW Real Estate I want to go public with my accolades. I would definitely work with PSW again and recommend them to my friends.”- Rosie
“PSW was knowledgeable, caring and helpful throughout the buying and moving process, not to mention the friendship we have grown with them since. Every time we make an addition to our home we are reminded of the great decision we made by working with PSW.”- Neil & Rupal
