Kinzler Helps Achieve Superior Energy Efficiency in St. Paul, MN Passive House

Passive House in St Paul, MN
Passive House buildings consume up to 90% less energy than typical construction and provide a measurable, proven framework for reducing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment.

The local experts at Kinzler Construction Services were hired as the insulation contractor for this cutting edge home. We started by installing Intello-Plus, which is an air barrier, smart vapor control, and dense-pack reinforcement all in one. A blower door test was performed before we installed blow-in cellulose insulation into the ceiling and walls.

“The Lexington Parkway Passive House is not only the first certified Passive House in the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota, but also a beacon for sustainability, resilience, easy ownership and aging-in-place.”
—Tim Delhey Eian, CPHD, TE Studio, Ltd. & Passive House Minnesota

Kinzler Construction Services was hired to install Rigid Board Insulation and Fireproofing on this commercial construction project in Castle Rock, CO.

THERMAX Ci rigid insulation has many advantages:

  • Provides continuous insulation on the interior or exterior
  • One of the highest R-values available (R-6.5 at 1″)
  • Features a distinct free-rise technology for better product consistency, durability and fire performance over generic polyisocyanurate insulations
  • Approved for fire exposure
  • Contains UV-stable technology and can remain uncovered up to six months
  • It reduces the potential for condensation within the wall assembly resulting in long lasting performance due to its low perm rating and high insulating value
  • Eliminates the extra step of installing a membrane or building wrap
  • Can be installed exposed to the interior without a thermal barrier

Customer Testimonial: Homeowner

We can definitely tell a difference in our house after adding the insulation.  The AC doesn’t run as long, stays cooler longer and the 2nd floor is much cooler throughout the entire day.  The crew did a fantastic job of installing the insulation.  The garage with the added insulation (which never had any in the beginning) is cooler as well.  We say Thank You to KINZLER CONSTRUCTION SERVICES for a great experience and for a job VERY WELL done. Thanks!
