Pro Remodeler and Symbi Homes CEO Nicole Tysvaer hit the show floor at the National Association of Home Builders' International Builders' Show 2023 to find share-worthy green products.

Tysvaer, a green home builder and remodeler based in Maryland, shares five standout energy-efficient products at IBS, plus shares a few fast tips for viewers.





A lot of homeowners are thinking about energy efficiencies. It's a hot topic, so we're going to go inside and I'm going to take a look at some of the products.

CertainTeed has a brand new design on their solar shingles. It integrates right into their asphalt shingle system. It looks very sleek, very cool.

A high quality spray foam insulation can be so beneficial if you're trying to tighten up your house, and this is the John Mansville Corbond IV product. It's Greenguard Gold-certified.

And if you want a really quick efficient, wonderful solution for sealing up all the tiny little nooks and crannies on the outside of your home, Aerobarrier is the way to go.

As we're tightening up our homes, we have to think a lot about ventilation and dehumidification, and sometimes, humidification and doing all that mechanically. AprilAire is leading the way with so many cool products right now.

Also filtration, they have this UVC light that's killing 99% of the mold on your A coil. They have these unbelievable accordion filters that just capture everything. We also have fresh air ventilation, dehumidifier here, and a new radon system too.

And when we're talking about home efficiency, here's the star player of the show, one of our Mitsubishi heat pumps. Absolutely wonderful, works great, and you'll save a ton of money too.

Okay, that's just the tip of the iceberg when we're talking about retrofits and energy-efficient improvements, but we gotta go! There's more for me to see in there.
