Where to Insulate

Insulation is often discussed in terms of 'more is better'. Yet, in many areas of your home the type of insulation used and how it's installed is far more important for saving on energy bills, controlling moisture and adding comfort.

This home shows some of the areas that are important insulation considerations that don't always get the attention they deserve.

I am SO glad I decided to use Icynene to insulate the entire envelope of my house. We did a full-renovation, and the 100% air barrier has been fabulous. Ameri-spec tested our house for the federal renovation grant, and said we were more heat efficient than most of the new "green" homes going up on the west side. Icynene definitely contributed to the $3800 rebate we got.
