There are many factors beyond R-Value that must be considered when choosing an insulation for your home or building. Air infiltration has a drastic effect on R-Value and the thermal performance and effectiveness of insulation. Infiltration of outside air means that heating and cooling systems must expend more energy to compensate for the infiltration. InCide® Pest Control Insulation impedes air flow, providing superior R-Value and minimizing air infiltration.
Insulation inhibits the movement of air from warm to cold (interior to exterior in winter and exterior to interior in summer), by trapping air between its fibers or pores. The higher the density of the material, the more effectively an insulation product impedes the movement of air. InCide® is high-density cellulose insulation and is extremely effective in inhibiting air movement. Lower-density insulations can be air permeable, allowing outside air to flow into the building through cracks, seams between building materials and through the insulation itself.
InCide® Pest Control Insulation forms a continuous layer, leaving a carpet-like texture in the wall cavity and attic area, providing maximum thermal efficiency and significant energy savings.
