Retrofit

Lower Energy Costs with a Retrofit of an Existing Structure

In this day and time, more and more commercial, as well as residential buildings are being initially designed with Demilec's spray foam insulation. Architects are relying on spray foam insulation to reduce energy costs, controlling moisture, and improving indoor air quality and air infiltration.

However, spray foam insulation can provide the same benefits in an existing structure with a retrofit.

According to the Department of Energy, if the building envelope includes inefficient technologies and poor insulation, the building envelope can contribute to higher heating and cooling costs – which account for 43 percent of the average energy consumption.* The building envelope is designed to be the barrier that protects from the uncontrolled movement of heat, air, and moisture. The same air infiltrating the home or commercial building brings in outdoor pollutants, such as dust, dirt, pollen, and mold.

Extreme energy retrofit and energy expenditures per square foot are becoming a hot commodity in commercial real estate. Existing property owners are more knowledgeable today about how to reduce their energy costs.

Creating an air barrier, which lowers these costs, and provides a more comfortable living or working space is how Demilec spray foam insulation performs. Demilec makes spray foam insulation products which meet a wide variety of commercial and residential retrofit projects.

Consider the following benefits of Demilec spray foam insulation:

  • Insulate with an air barrier in one application
  • Fills all cracks, gaps, and voids between insulation and framing
  • Adheres to nearly any substrate
  • Save on energy costs
  • Contains no CFC's, HCFC's, formaldehyde, or fibrous materials
