How spray foam contributes to zero-energy builds [Video]
Research from The New American Home, a working lab dedicated to developing new best practices for residential construction, suggests that better insulation is important to helping homes achieve net-zero status. The material's airtight seal is critical for eliminating the drafts and leaks that limit household performance.
Net-zero homes need a tight thermal envelope to achieve neutral electricity consumption. Spray foam insulation is perfect for home designs that aim to eliminate energy waste. Spray foam insulation's high R-value and air seal ensure that heat loss and air leaks are not a threat to the home's overall performance.
