Residential insulation for an energy-efficient home
Changes to the residential building code and consumer demand for energy-efficient homes gives you the opportunity to differentiate your home designs from the rest and still fit into your construction budget. Go beyond your client’s expectations with an energy-efficient home that delivers on performance, functionality, and comfort year-round.
Residential insulation such as Icynene or Demilec spray foam insulation helps you differentiate your homes in many ways, including:
- optimal energy performance and energy efficiency score
- comfort and improved indoor air quality, regardless of the season
- quieter spaces to live, work and play
- lower heating and cooling bills each month.
Backed by trusted, industry-leading engineering and technical support network, Icynene energy-efficient spray foam insulation has been tested and evaluated by industry associations, including ABAA, ICC-ES and CHPS.
Build new or retrofit more energy efficient homes
Energy-efficiency is just one of the many ways spray foam insulation can help architects and builders bring design flexibility and sustainability together. Spray foam insulation’s air-sealing properties help buildings work towards energy efficiency. Selecting spray foam insulation can noticeably reduce a building’s carbon footprint since less energy is required to heat and cool the building.
The dual functionality of thermal insulation and air sealing in spray foam insulation in a residential sustainable design means that fewer building materials are required. Plus, energy-efficient foam insulation can help shorten construction schedules thanks to quick application and a reduction in building materials. Icynene works for the life of the building, eliminating the need for replacement or additional materials and waste.
With spray foam, builders can lower construction costs, meet or exceed today’s stringent building code requirements, and provide homeowners with the benefits of spray foam.
- Spray foam fits into hard to reach places and can be applied directly onto existing roof coverings, which could eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming tear-off and replacement.
- Spray foam roofs and insulation can help you meet or exceed the stringent building and energy codes adopted by states and localities that encourage or mandate increased energy efficiency.
- Spray foam can help builders meet the energy efficiency requirements if involved programs such as Energy Star, LEED, and NAHB Green Building Certification, potentially eliminating the need for a local code official inspection of energy elements and reduced fees.
