In the design process few decisions have as many long-term implications for the performance and durability of a building as the choice of insulation. For the designer, builder and owner, insulation can and should play a multifaceted role that extends far beyond those noticeable or expected benefits, such as energy savings, comfort and enhanced indoor air quality. Insulation, in combination with good detailing and quality control, can play a preventive role by minimizing the chances that things could go wrong.
A unique opportunity is at hand for commercial architects to shape a healthier and more energy efficient future of commercial building design and construction. Commercial buildings account for 18% of the nation’s energy use and nearly 18% of our greenhouse gas emissions. Improving their performance is a key priority for building owners and operators. Low-density spray foam insulation like ICYNENE can play a major role in this effort, offering compelling reasons to go beyond the code to create buildings that exceed expectations for comfort, performance and functionality.
Fiberglass and mineral wool insulation is installed in 90% of homes in the United States. Whether you are building a new home or remodeling an older home, insulating the walls to maximize a home's energy performance will not only increase the total comfort of the home, but will help reduce home energy costs.
