Homeowners Can Lower Energy Costs with a
Spray Foam Retrofit

In this day and time, more residential buildings are being initially designed with Demilec's spray foam insulation. There are many benefits to homeowners that rely on spray foam insulation, such as reduced energy costs, controlling moisture, and improved indoor air quality and air infiltration.

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

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. The building envelope is designed to be the barrier that protects from the uncontrolled movement of heat, air, and moisture. The same air infiltration also brings in outdoor pollutants, such as dust, dirt, pollen, and mold. However, Demilec's spray foam insulation products can significantly reduce these factors.

This air barrier, created using Demilec spray foam insulation, lowers energy costs, while also providing a more comfortable living or working space. Demilec spray foam insulation products meet a wide variety of 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
  • "We enjoy the benefits of Demilec as a thermal barrier, air intrusion barrier and as a sound attenuation material. We plan on being a Demilec customer for many years to come."
