Did you know that the insulation you choose for your new residence should contribute to the durability, energy efficiency, comfort, health and safety of your home?
Most homebuyers get excited about selecting new appliances, counter tops, landscaping and other aesthetic items but rarely consider the variety of insulation materials available to the construction industry. With the rising cost of energy, and a focus on health and environmental issues, architects and builders are recommending insulation materials that add significant performance value to construction projects. Open-cell spray foam is at the top of the recommended insulation materials list.
DurafillTM insulation is part of the Durafoam Energy-Efficient Insulation SystemsTM family. The structure of the spray foam is referred to as "open-cell" because air is trapped in small cavities that expand 120 times its initial volume, filling the building envelope with an insulation R-value of 3.52 per inch. The spray-applied foam forms an air seal that prevents air leaks and greatly reduces noise transmission through walls.
LOWER UTILITY BILLS
More than 40% of the energy consumed in a typical household goes to heating and cooling. Durafill insulation is a continuous air barrier system-when properly installed, the open-cell insulation prevents the conditioned air from escaping through building voids. Minimizing air leakage reduces HVAC equipment energy consumption, which lowers utility bills.
Consider these facts before you settle for conventional insulation materials:
Durafill open-cell insulation is environmentally safe, a "perfect fit" for your budget, and can improve the overall performance of your home.
Take an active role in the construction of your home by requesting Durafill open-cell spray foam to insulate your most valuable asset.
