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
Demilec works with the highest qualified contractors in the industry. These
are the professionals who will partner with you in choosing the best product
and application for your retrofit project. In addition, our Building Solutions
Department will provide support throughout your project – ready
to answer questions you may have, design specifications, applications,
