Knauf Insulation

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.

Owens Corning Advances In Residential Insulation

EnergyComplete SealantOwens Corning leads the market in the advancement of residential insulation with contemporary technological advancements since it became commercialized approximately 75  years ago. The latest residential insulation product to take the stage, the energy-efficient EnergyComplete® Sealant which prolongs their success rate by winning Design Journal’s 2013 ADEX Platinum Award for Design Excellence. This impressive sealant contributes to preserving energy in the home.

The Owens Corning Building Science team conducted a study that identified individual exterior joints where air most likely enters and escapes from homes via vulnerable cracks, seams and gaps which contribute up to 40% of the energy utilized for heating and cooling. This new knowledge is what inspired the design of the formula and equipment used in  residential insulation EnergyComplete® Sealant.

taxes and less spending in accordance with prior enacted laws. Whatever your
political stance, there is a silver lining for energy-efficient
home-builders in the fiscal cliff legislation. The final legislation
includes a renewal of the 25L Tax Credit for builders of new
energy-efficient homes.

Home-builders who build and sell these energy-efficient homes benefit from
this tax credit. The tax credit is retroactive to homes sold in January 1st
of 2012. The home-builder must show proof that the level of the heating and
cooling energy consumption is at least 50% lower than that of a
commensurable living unit built in accordance with the
2006 IECC.

Johns Manville insulation offers so many options, it’s important to distinguish your needs and requirements when choosing which home insulationwill be most efficient and effective.

Poly-encapsulated insulation: Wrapped entirely in plastic, this home insulation provides a more comfortable installation with a reduction in itch and dust.

Faced insulation: With the facing already attached to it acting as a vapor retarder, this home insulation is usually made from Kraft paper or foil. It is ideal for moisture control on exterior walls.

Unfaced insulation: Effective for eliminating undesirable noises within the internal walls of your Arizona home, this type of home insulation also assists with moisture control.

Blown-in insulation: Made up of a loose-fill material that can be made from many materials such as fiber glass and cellulose, this home insulation is blown into the designated area through a blowing machine. It is best suited for nonconforming areas and Blown-in insulation will not decay or settle.

Batts or Rolls: Batts are pre-cut strips of insulation best for insulating interior and exterior walls, while Rolls are best for insulating large, open areas in your Arizona home such as attics and crawl spaces. Rolls come in long strips of insulation rolled up and require measuring and cutting. When tackling a home insulation project, you’ll most likely benefit from using both Batts & Rolls for optimal convenience!

Arizona Home Insulation From Recycled Paper

Though fiberglass currently holds 94% of the U.S. insulation market, cellulose insulation proves to be recognized as an innovative, eco-friendly competitor in the building products industry thanks to GreenFiber.

GreenFiber is a natural fiber form of insulation that contributes to lowering the energy need to heat Arizona homes. In addition GreenFiber is made from 85% recycled paper fiber. This reduces manufacturing costs while providing further use to billions of tons of paper annually.

GreenFiber is able to produce this Arizona insulation product for homes via the hundreds of tons of recycled paper collected each month from a combination of commercial accounts, public drop-off locations and municipal recycling partnerships.

Utilizing a process of grinding paperboard, paper and a fire retardant, throw-aways from manufacturers, retailers and the public transform into cellulose insulation for Arizona homes.

As it turns out, cellulose insulation surpasses fiberglass with respect to soundproofing, air flow, mold protection and even fire resistance. During processing, ammonium sulfate and borate are added to repel fire.

Fiberglass continues to dominate the market for insulating Arizona homes, however it’s definitely got an up-and-coming competitor in GreenFiber’s cellulose insulation.
