Everyone knows that proper insulation is essential to having a low energy bill and a sustainable home. The hard question is, how do you find the right insulation for you?
The two most important things when considering a sustainable insulation is the R-Value, or the value of the energy insulation properties of the insulation, and the sourcing.
Most insulation provides adequate R-Value for the application it is recommended for.
So the way many of these companies make a distinction is with their sourcing.
This is where Thermafiber really shines. It is available in both 70% and 90% pre-consumer or post-industrial recycled products.
