Icynene® is an example of a green building product that pays homeowners numerous dividends - both short term an long term. As energy costs rise, you can bank on the fact that your lower heating and cooling costs will become an important resale feature.
Certified Green Material such as Icynene ® contributes significantly to higher home resale values. The Appraisal Journal conducted studies that demonstrated the increasing value a home garners by becoming more energy efficient. Including energy efficient upgrades as part of your home can increase the value of your home by approximately $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.
Icynene® is a proven insulation that enhances the comfort of your living environment. That's why it is the insulation of choice for high profile projects such as the American Lung Association and EarthCraft House™
Improved Indoor Air Quality- With asthma rates on the rise, as a homeowner you can take comfort in knowing the Icynene® is a “green” material that helps to improve the quality of the indoor air you and your family breathe. Icynene® reduces random air leakage and limits the penetration on outdoor allergens and pollutants.
It is the only insulation certified by Envirodesic™ Certification Program, which is recognized for improving air quality in homes across North America.

This assures the future home owner that during the construction process, there will be no contamination from dust, mold spores, insects or moisture; any one of which could create health problems for the residents, down-the-line.
