Understanding ‘Shades of Green:’ Spray Foam Insulation
Lots of discussion about energy efficiency at the recent National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show centered on the ways spray foam insulation has the remarkable ability to create an air barrier to save energy, installs easily and helps seal the home.
Spay foam insulation is an integral element in Generation Homes’ “Shades of Green” approach to maximizing building envelope performance. As energy costs continue to increase and homeowners seek a healthier home environment, engineering encompasses the latest spray-foam insulation technology to provide maximum comfort and efficiency.
By creating a tight barrier around the building, the insulation helps prevent hot and cold air, moisture and vapor from infiltrating a homes’ comfortable interior environment.
Water-blown foam insulation minimizes air leakage creating a healthier indoor environment, reducing airborne sounds and offering greater design freedom. And is the perfect insulation for walls, attics, ceilings and floors.
Using Green Building and Energy Star products that will help reduce energy costs, Generation Homes understands the construction technology critical to a homes’ energy and environmental performance. Buildings are more sustainable, and can provide occupants with a healthier indoor environment when spray foam insulated.
