Polyiso Sheathing Insulation – Residential Construction
According to the Department of Energy, heating and cooling costs comprise more than 44 percent of the energy consumed in a single family home. As many design professionals are aware, choosing energy-efficient insulation can be one of the most effective ways to save energy and money.
Typically, Polyiso is used to insulate an entire wall, including the framing. Framing usually accounts for at least 20 percent of the total wall area and is often left uninsulated. By insulating the entire wall, you can effectively reduce heat loss through both convection and conduction. And by properly insulating a structure with Polyiso, you can decrease condensation in walls which could potentially lower your moisture-related problems.
When properly specified and installed, Polyiso sheathing insulation offers one of the best values available for residential construction. Benefits include:
Since the 1970s, studies conducted by the EPA's Energy Star Homes Program have consistently concluded energy-efficient homes earn higher resale prices than average homes, and are less expensive to heat and cool.
