In the last decade we have gotten pretty good at combining the water control layer, air control layer and vapor control layer into a single layer that can be a film or coating or membrane or a sheet good. We have also gotten pretty good at wrapping the exterior of all this with the fourth control layer – the thermal control layer. This configuration, with the thermal control layer outboard of the water, air and vapor control layers, allows the assembly to be constructed in all climate zones: cold, mixed, hot and humid or dry.

Most of us are aware that marketing greatly impacts the way consumers make decisions and ultimately make purchases or investments. Still, depending on the products or services you are attempting to market, the costs and complexity of executing a marketing campaign will vary depending on the product's marketability. Thus, if you are attempting to market energy efficiency as a package of services and products, then you need to focus on developing an in-depth marketing plan.
