Insulation may not be the most glamorous of home ownership topics, but when increased R-values and air leakage prevention equal money saved on energy costs, it’s like blowing a dog whistle in a kennel—a whole lot of ears perk up. Icynene’s insulation system kills two birds with one stone. Available in both spray and pour fill varieties, it acts as an insulation and air barrier system—a one step solution that saves contractors time and money. As an air barrier system, Icynene minimizes costly air leakage and improves indoor air quality by limiting mold growth from moisture buildup. Air leakage is responsible for as much as 40% of a home’s energy loss, and that same air leakage can lead to moisture buildup and mold. With 40% of homes housing at least one family member with asthma or allergies, an effective air barrier system becomes a health necessity. Tack on noise reduction and an end to sagging or shrinking, and you have a product that’s worth hearing more about. Want more? The Icynene Insulation System can qualify a home for a Federal Tax Credit under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Suitable for new home construction, renovations, and retrofits. Available now.
