Retrofitting Your Home's Insulation
Reduce Energy Costs with a Retrofit to Your
We are seeing an increasing trend that existing
homeowners are replacing their fiberglass insulation with spray foam insulation.
This process is called a retrofit. Once homeowners learn how much they
can save in energy costs, more are making the decision to retrofit their
home. Not only do they save on energy costs, but the additional benefits
make a retrofit an attractive option. Read more to learn how a retrofit
could benefit you and your family.
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
