Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is an entirely new concept when it comes to insulation. Rather than allowing the flow of air through a home, spray foam insulation seals off a home from the heat or cold. This in turn dramatically increases the efficiency of your home and the air quality inside your home by reducing the air flow through the home.
“Spray-applied as a liquid, it expands within seconds to 120 times its volume to fill every nook and cranny providing superior energy efficiency and improved indoor air quality by eliminating air movement through walls. SEALECTION® 500 is a non-toxic spray foam which has undergone extensive testing and meets the intent of all building code requirements and reduces airborne noise and dust making it the healthy choice for those who suffer from allergies, asthma or chemical sensitivity.
On Demand Hot Water Heaters
The installation of on demand hot water heaters in your new home is likely one of the most cost effective items to include. With just a small increase over the traditional tank water heaters you will have a great return on your investment in short time as well as reap the benefits of its increased efficiency, usability and safety.
- Increased efficiency – on demand heaters heat only when hot water is needed which leads to dramatic energy savings.
- Provide a never ending source of hot water.
- Precise water temperature set with digital thermostat.
- The tanks can be located near the destination of the water to reduce the run for the water and in turn reducing the wait time for hot water.

High Efficiency HVAC
With Nalle Custom Homes your home will start with a 14 seer HVAC that offers great efficiency. Many home owners recently have decided to increase this efficiency with 16+ seer HVAC units.
The addition of spray foam insulation reduces the tonnage that is required for your home and in turn reduces the cost to increase the efficiency. Along with the increase in efficiency the upgraded system offers a humidistat to control the humidity level in your home.
