When it comes to enhancing home performance, insulation is often considered to be one of the most important pieces of the puzzle. A well-insulated home will not only serve to keep you and your family warm during the winter, but it will also prevent cool air from escaping during the summertime. In outfitting a home with new insulation, many NY homeowners have concerns about the safety of the materials being used—especially with blown insulation. For those who fall into this camp, next-gen blowing agents by HoneyWell are the perfect solution.
The Future of Home Performance
There are a number of different ways to improve home performance, and the first place that many contractors start is with new and updated insulation. In most cases, blown-in insulation will be more effective than mineral wool or fiberglass batting, resulting in 20-40% higher levels of energy efficiency. Because some sprayed materials can be harmful to the environment, however, many homeowners overlook this form of insulation altogether. This is precisely why Zerodraft has begun to offer HoneyWell Next Generation Blowing Agents as an option, these products are affordable, have low Global Warming Potential (1) and are not flammable.
Perhaps most important is to consider whether or not this type of insulation is as effective as others on the market. Across the board, it’s a better option. When properly installed, HoneyWell Solstice Blowing Agent can can increase the thermal insulation value of spray-applied insulation foams by 5%. Add to this that the low Global Warming Potential can help to save 60 million metric tons of CO2 per year, and it’s clear why so many homeowners are making the switch to this more environmentally friendly option.
