High Performance System
We believe building safe, healthy, durable, comfortable, affordable to operate and maintain, environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing homes is simply the right thing to do.
The Parr High Performance System™ incorporates building sciences in the construction of the home’s building envelope. This process effectively and efficiently protects your family and your investment by managing the water, air and thermal aspects of the home’s building envelope. This is done while reducing construction time, reducing waste and improving the quality and livability of your home.
Homes that use The Parr High Performance System™ are designed and built to drastically reduce the amount of dust, dirt, pollen, carbon monoxide, and pollution from entering your home through the foundation or the numerous other gaps created in the typical construction process. Carbon Monoxide and other contaminants are also reduced through the systematic design of your home. Did you know in most homes air from the garage leaks into the homes living space? Considering that’s where items like gasoline, fertilizers and other toxic items are stored, that’s not air you want in your home. The Parr High Performance System™ takes extra measures to help keep the contaminated air in your garage completely separated from the living space. The building envelope of a home that uses The Parr High Performance System™ is a total house system that ensures your family will breathe fresh, crisp filtered air continuously.
Many homes on the market today were built without enough attention paid to the details of the construction process leaving homes unprotected against moisture. Be assured, the engineering, detailed construction techniques, and meticulous quality control of the Parr High Performance System™ is designed to mitigate moisture.
Parr High Performance Homes are built to drastically reduce the amount of air that is wasted due to air leakage. Each home is designed with quality craftsmanship, advanced framing techniques and a superior thermal insulation system in mind. The result is not only lower heating and cooling costs and consistent comfortable room-to-room temperature &mdash you will also have peace of mind knowing your home is designed to reduce waste.
Eliminating waste, conserving energy and preserving our environment makes good sense. That’s why our homes are specially designed and engineered using NSC manufactured wall panels and components including Parr Lumber Open Web Floor Joists, all built in a controlled environment eliminating weather related damage or delays. A typical jobsite will accumulate approximately 3,000 lbs. of wasted lumber and siding &mdash that’s enough to fill a 10 yard dumpster. Remarkably, the waste on a High Performance Home jobsite is reduced to less than 25% of the average lumber waste. The result is an extremely efficient use of natural resources.
