Alternate Terms

Enhanced-Comfort Floor Insulation
Enhanced-Quiet Floor Insulation
Advanced Floor Insulation
Technical Description: 

There are two levels of floor insulation: high-efficiency insulation, which meets the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code, and ultra-efficient insulation, which is 25% more efficient than this national code. Using high-efficiency and ultra-efficient insulation along with professional installation (e.g., no gaps, voids, compression, or misalignment with air barriers;  complete air barriers; and minimal thermal bridging) creates conditioned spaces that require very little heating and cooling, along with even comfort and quiet throughout the house.

High-Efficiency or Ultra-Efficient Floor Insulation
Sales Message
High-efficiency floor insulation helps provide added thermal protection. What this means for you is less wasted energy along with enhanced comfort and quiet. Knowing there is one opportunity to optimize performance during construction, wouldn’t you agree it’s a great opportunity to meet or exceed future codes?
