Savings and Environmental Benefits That Far Outweigh Insulation Costs
Energy efficiency is a top consideration among building owners in the market for insulation. Icynene spray foam insulation helps you give them exactly that. In fact, Icynene can help reduce heating and cooling energy bills by up to 50%, and the investment continues to pay off in the form of monthly savings for the life of the building.
Because less energy is needed to heat and cool a building with Icynene, HVAC capacity needs may also be reduced, saving your clients more money and possibly saving space within the design. HVAC design software can help you estimate the reduced heating and cooling loads.
In addition to a higher return on insulation costs, all this means a huge reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, not to mention easily earned LEED credits, without design limitations — giving commercial architects unprecedented power to shape the future.

How It Works: Insulation R Value + Air Seal
When measuring the effectiveness of insulation, R value is the only factor most insulation manufacturers talk about because it’s all they offer. R value measures the ability to limit conductive heat flow (heat transferred through it). But the primary method of heat transfer is not conductive heat flow — it’s air leakage (convection). Air leakage can account for up to 40% of a building’s energy loss, and it cannot be stopped with traditional insulation. R value is important, but an airtight seal is equally important for achieving energy savings.
Icynene spray foam insulation provides insulation R value and air-sealing in a single step, saving time and reducing the material needed. This is the only way to truly provide your clients with the most value from their insulation costs.
