Energy Efficient

The R-value is a measure of the thermal resistance of a material or building component, indicating its ability to resist the transfer of heat. A higher R-value signifies greater insulation and better energy efficiency. Most standard wall insulation carries an R-value of 13. The R-value of our exterior walls are nearly twice that, R24.5. This is because of the density of our two part polyurethane foam, the way we inject the foam into the cells of the frame, and the way our panels are assembled together.

Increasing the R-value of a building envelope (walls, roof, and floor) can result in several benefits:

  1. Energy savings: A higher R-value reduces heat transfer through the building envelope, reducing the need for heating or cooling systems. This leads to lower energy consumption and cost savings on utility bills.
  2. Improved comfort: Enhanced insulation minimizes heat loss or gain, creating more consistent indoor temperatures and reducing drafts. This improves occupant comfort by maintaining a stable and comfortable living environment.
  3. Condensation control: Adequate insulation with a higher R-value helps prevent condensation within walls, ceilings, and other building components. This reduces the risk of moisture-related issues such as mold growth, rot, and damage to structural elements.
  4. Noise reduction: Insulation with a higher R-value can also contribute to soundproofing by absorbing and blocking unwanted noise from the external environment, providing a quieter indoor space.
  5. Environmental benefits: By reducing energy consumption, improving energy efficiency, and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions associated with heating and cooling, a higher R-value helps to mitigate the environmental impact of buildings.

In summary, a better R-value translates into improved energy efficiency, increased comfort, moisture control, noise reduction, and positive environmental impacts.
