Oser Founder Construction Marketplace Wednesday, February 20, 2019 4 Create a More Energy Efficient Home with Kingspan Energy efficient homes are on the rise, both in new construction or remodel applications. More homeowners are turn- ing toward energy efficient products, materials and appliances as they build. This is partially due to rising energy costs, but also because of a renewed focus on sustainability and environmen- tally-responsible building practices. There are numerous ways to create a more energy efficient home. The follow- ing three aspects for energy efficient con- struction focus on improving the building envelope. High Performance Insulation The vast majority of homes today are under-insulated for their climate and energy usage. There are many types of insulation, but not all of them are ideal for stopping energy transfer or in high- moisture conditions. A premium performance rigid insu- lation like Kooltherm can help achieve a better HERS rating and a more efficient home. Using GreenGuard XPS insulation board as continuous insulation can also help lower energy bills and make the home more comfortable. Adding insula- tion to walls and roofing can help keep energy being used inside the structure (and not flowing out the door). Tight Building Envelope Air infiltration and heat transfer have been identified as the biggest sources of energy loss in the home. According to the Department of Energy, as much as 43 percent of the energy used by a home is to heat and cool it. Inefficient technolo- gies and a poorly constructed building envelope can contribute to higher heating Fine-Quality Wood Bathroom Vanities from Bellaterra Home Who is Bellaterra Home?
