When you’re working toward transforming your home into a passive house, there are lots of details that need to be addressed. One of the most important aspects is choosing the right insulation, since it needs to be high performance and help to create an airtight building envelope. An ideal insulation is spray foam insulation, like that available from Icynene, to help you work toward the passive house standard.
What makes Icynene spray foam insulation stand out is its ability to expand within seconds to fill any tiny gaps and holes, wherever it is applied. This, along with Icynene’s superior insulating ability, can create an effective air seal in your home, keeping you and your family comfortable throughout the year.
The air seal created, with the proper ventilation in place, helps to reduce the incidence of drafts and cold spots in your home, which contributes to a more comfortable space to live in for the entire family. Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to bundle up when you’re in home, in the middle of winter?
A passive house is more than just high performance insulation, but high performance insulation can help you to achieve a passive house.
