Why Icynene




Building Science

Here’s the proof.

Building science is the study of how all components of a building work together, including the foundation, walls, roofs, doors, windows, insulation and mechanical systems

Effective building science takes the following five principles into consideration:

  • creating a continuous air barrier in conjunction with proper mechanical ventilation;
  • thermal resistance;
  • moisture management;
  • improving indoor air quality; and
  • appropriate heating and air conditioning systems.

Future Foam’s use of Icynene® helps building and design professionals practice building science techniques with ease. For instance, as both an insulation and air barrier, Icynene® minimizes air leakage and creates tighter buildings.

Tighter buildings and controlled ventilation can save up to 50% in energy costs. A tighter building often results in the downsizing of heating/cooling equipment for even greater savings. Using less energy to heat and cool a building also means a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for a healthier planet.
