More Energy Efficient
By controlling air leakage, buildings can perform 30-50% better than with traditional insulation methods.
Creating an air barrier with Icynene® is the smart solution for those concerned about energy efficiency. The Icynene Insulation System® virtually eliminates the largest source of energy loss in the average home - the 30 to 40% typically lost through air leakage.
Example. In a 2,500 sq. ft. home with conventional insulation with Icynene® materials, you might expect to install a 40,000 to 48,000 BTU air conditioner just to maintain a minimum of cooling comfort. With The Icynene Insulation System®, you can cut the BTU's needed by up to 40%. And for colder climates, the same principle applies for downsizing the heating system.
