Maximize Energy Efficiency in Your Home With CertainTeed CertaSprayTM Foam Insulation
CertaSpray also helps meet the requirements of an ENERGY STAR® home.
September, 2008 - Valley Forge, Pa. – To maximize energy efficiency and help offset rising utility costs, CertainTeed now provides an ideal solution for homeowners who are either building a new home or planning a remodeling project.
CertaSprayTM Foam Insulation helps reduce air leaks by creating an air seal in wall cavities and hard to reach areas, such as around stairwells, recessed lighting and plumbing fixtures. Properly sealing these types of air leaks can reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 30 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
“Whether you’re building a new home, building an addition, or simply, gutting to the studs and remodeling,” says Shawn Beears, Marketing Manager for CertainTeed Insulation, “CertaSpray is an excellent option to help ensure homeowners are getting the most out of their energy dollars.”
Installed by qualified contractors, CertaSpray foam insulation is sprayed into a building cavity and quickly expands to fill every opening that can potentially leak air. The product is available in two different formulas - the open-cell formula, which forms a flexible insulation, and the closed-cell formula, which results in a hard, rigid consistency that provides added structural integrity to components of your home.
In addition to increased energy efficiency, CertaSpray foam insulation minimizes hot and cold spots and provides outstanding comfort and indoor air quality by impeding the penetration of moisture and outdoor allergens. CertaSpray also helps meet the requirements of an ENERGY STAR® home.
