New net-zero home design features spray foam insulation [Video]
One of the nation's first mass-producible net-zero homes made its debut in Minnesota this fall, showcasing a potential future for the housing industry. One notable aspect about the home's design is that spray foam was incorporated as the insulation.
The installation of spray foam helps parts of the home achieve R-values as high as 68, according to Inforum.com. Considering how effective spray foam insulation is at sealing drafts and preventing heat loss, it won't be surprising if spray foam insulation eventually becomes an industry standard for net-zero home building.
