   Welcome, you've reached one of the most important sources of information on how to significantly reduce the use of energy in your home, business or building project or development in the world.  Our innovative products have applications in every type of building.  LEED Certified Architects offer "slab up" plans for new construction on both residential and commercial and multi-family structures. 
If you have any questions please feel free to email us. 



 Thermal Control Membrane, the most effective attic insulation in the world for hot climates and the only radiant barrier with a lifetime performance warranty!  How does it work? Rather than resist the flow of heat like conventional fibrous insulation, TCM changes the direction of heat.  The results?  Lower energy consumption, doubles the life of the HVAC equipment, increases comfort Click here  

 When considering a radiant barrier it's imperative that you also significantly increase the attic venting to exhaust the super heated attic air.  We've been smoke smoke testing full size homes and checking which vents work and which do not and have listed our findings on our venting page.   Click here



TCM Roof Underlayment System: Keep the heat out before it gets into the attic.  A fraction of the cost of foam in the attic Click here


Shown here is a new gymnasium for the Phoenix Christian Assembly Church which is wrapped in Diamondback Stucco Foamtm and Thermal Control Membranetm (TCM/4).  The attic has R30 cellulose covered by Thermal Control Membran (TCM/6). This combination allowed the church to use only 10 tons of the 20 tons installed to cool this structure.

NOTE: You must downsize the HVAC at least 40% when using this construction detail when specifying Diamondback Stucco Foam and Thermal Control Membrane in the attic.
This just in from the pastor two years after the building was completed:

To Whom It May Concern:

     This is to verify that Horizon Energy Systems, designed and implemented his latest
products on our new multipurpose building at our church, Phoenix Christian Assembly.  The products work so effectively that the building does not go over 90 degrees without using any air conditioning.  The whole building can be effectively cooled in 20 minutes.  Horizon Energy also put some German attic fans and added additional venting on the East side that also does a good job. 

               When the building was built the power company automatically increased our electric bill.  Then later they came back and reduced the budget plan by $500.00 per month. 

We found Brad to be a man of character and integrity wanting only what s best for the owner.

This 2800sq foot Phoenix home not only had high energy bills but even at this cost per month the a/c units ran non stop and at the peak of the summer could not cool below 81F.  Hot rooms, high bills, blasts of hot air out of the ducts when the units started, dust problems, duct leaks are not problems, they are symptoms of existing problems.  We have turn key solutions to all of these problems.  Our video page has examples, click here.  It all starts with an $80 home inspection.  A BPI certified home inspector will evaluate your home, identify problems and write you a succinct proposal for the solutions.


This is the Frank Luke Senior Center Phoenix Arizona 650 North 16th Street
This building was designed by Biltform Architecture.

Frank Luke under construction. Note the TCM and Diamondback stucco foam being installed.

Architect: Biltform Architecture

Frank Luke Completed.  The most efficient multi-family building in Arizona.

This three story assisted care center is going to be comfortable and easy to cool due to the installation of Thermal Control Membrane and our new Diamondback Stucco Foam product on the walls and attic.  This combination effectively keeps heat from moving into or out of the building through the walls.  We used a similar system when we applied our technology to the most efficient home ever built on ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition. 





Solar Powered Heat Pumps and air to water condensers (also solar powered), are among a few of the items of grea
t benefit for the reduction of fuel and water on MOB's, FOB's and remote outposts.  Consultation and unique challenges welcomed.  Horizon Energy Systems is part of two

The time has come to move quickly on making decisions to reduce our consumption of finite, fossil fuels, propagate renewable energy and nurture our planet.  All of us are caretakers and have a responsibility to make changes at every level and inculcate into our children and others, by example, a move in this direction. 

We must immediately address archaic building codes which are not climate specific and begin using available proven technologies as found on this site.  We need to move now to build more energy efficient, sustainable and comfortable homes and buildings.  Our proven products will help you meet these goals.  Before building, buying or remodeling, read this web site thoroughly and please be prepared to "think outside the box".
