Air infiltration is widely regarded as one of the largest sources of energy loss in residential constructions. The 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requires much reduced air infiltration rate compared to previous versions. How to choose a wall or building assembly with minimum air infiltration plays a vital role for a particular home to meet IECC, achieve ENERGY STAR Version 3 program requirements, or other energy efficiency programs. This photo illustrates just one of the ways Banker Insulation addresses the air infiltration issue during new construction.

The most cost effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and use less energy in residential and commercial buildings is through insulation. When we reduce our consumption of energy, we reduce the amount of pollution coming from the utility infrastructure. In turn, this cuts the carbon dioxide emission by 780 million tons globally each year. This is equal to the electricity used by 90 million plus every year. Within the average life span of a building, over 1500 times the energy used in its manufacture is saved because of insulation. Knauf Insulation is committed to providing a product and service that saves energy and preserves our natural resources for a future that is sustainable.
