Seattle, Washington -- Green Builder Media, which promotes sustainable living in North America, is presenting the Vision House exhibit at Walt Disney World's Epcot park in Florida.
Vision House, which uses BioBased Technologies' open-cell spray polyurethane foam, is a case study in green building and living, Green Builder said. The house has been rated by a third-party, EnergyLogic, and it actually produces more energy than it uses, the media company said.
Green Builder said that while the Vision House is an exhibit, not a real home, the company has worked with Disney to make it a practical teaching tool that demonstrates some of the resource efficient systems that families could choose for their home.
"The biggest impact in energy efficiency realised by the use of BioBased Insulation Open Cell is that it provides an air seal for the home's thermal envelope," commented Jennifer Wilson, brand manager of BioBased Technologies. "This gives the home's HVAC system and ventilation system complete control over the indoor environment and allows the systems to work more efficiently."
The exhibit is currently on display in Innoventions, part of Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
