Schell Brothers presents EXPOsure June 18 at Independence
LEWES, Delaware (SmallTownPapers) -- Rising gas prices, tightened budgets, and an increase in allergy-related illnesses have heightened public interest in improving home performance, including energy efficiency, air quality, and comfort. Schell Brothers, an established home builder located in Rehoboth Beach, is enhancing its continued focus on customer happiness by including an array of features in every home to improve comfort, safety, efficiency, and durability. The company will launch this exclusive Schellter Advanced Building Science technology at EXPOsure: A Delaware Home for Life EXPO, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, June 18, at Independence Hall, 23767 Samuel Adams Circle, Millsboro.
This educational event will showcase how Schell Brothers homes can reduce consumers' energy bills by at least 35 percent, while providing healthy air quality that rates in the top 10 percent in the natioa Event participants will have the opportunity to experience state-of-the-art demonstrations and attend Tech Talks where experts such as Ed Minch of Energy Services Group will share the latest information about high-performance features that can significantly impact a family's comfort, health and pocketbook.
At EXPOsure, the company is launching three exclusive high-performance brands with a long list of features that are standard in every Schell Brothers home. The 4tress components and techniques provide a product that is sturdy and long lasting, requiring fewer repairs than a typical new home. Advanced framing techniques associated with 4tress include 2-by-6 exterior walls, engineered flooring systems, special waterproofing techniques, and a five-check leak-prevention system. All 4tress homes meet stringent requirements for strength, durability, moisture resistance and sound attenuation. The Ener-Wize brand is characterized by 16-SEER air conditioners, variable-speed blowers, Rinnai tank-less water heaters, specially sealed ducts, and proprietary techniques. These features combine to provide an average HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score in a Schell Brothers home that is at or below 65. That means homeowners can expect a utility bill that will be about 35 percent less than a typical home. In addition, the 95 percent efficient gas furnace ensures that 95 cents out of every dollar an owner spends on fuel will end up as useful heat. Available only from Schell Brothers, SanctuAIR standards exceed the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency's Indoor AirPLUS program, placing Schell Brothers homes in the top 10 percent in the nation for air quality. Visitors to EXPOsure will learn how low VOC (volatile organic compound) building products and MERV-13 air filters with a surface area 20 times larger than a standard filter create a healthier environment that minimizes allergens, VOCs, and other contaminants that are prevalent in many homes.
Registrations are still available for EXPOsure, and out-of-town visitors are invited to take advantage of special hotel rates from two area hotels.
