Add Value to Your New Build With Energy-Efficient Insulation
When you choose energy-efficient insulation for your new construction projects, you add significant and lasting value to the property:
- Residents will be more comfortable during extreme weather.
- The homeowner will save money on reduced energy use.
- HVAC equipment will last longer.
- The property’s overall value will be higher.
What Are the Most Energy-Efficient Types of Insulation?
There are a variety of insulation types you can choose from for a new build. These are all excellent options in terms of their energy efficiency ratings:
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is applied wet and expands as it dries, making it ideal for roofs, walls and crawl spaces. It’s dense and is particularly good at filling small crevices and gaps like those around piping and wiring.
Using spray foam in your project will provide superior protection against air leaks, ensuring the home is well-insulated and energy-efficient.
Usually used for roofs, rigid insulation is the best way to prevent air loss through your roof. This minimizes air loss through the roof for maximum efficiency of the home and HVAC system.
Available in batts, rolls or kraft, fiberglass insulation is another great option for your new builds.
With high R-values, this eco-friendly choice will ensure minimal air loss in winter and summer.
