THE ESSENTIAL ISSUES

What exactly is an insulating envelope? The Owens Corning insulating envelope is designed to reduce the natural movement of heat from warmer to colder areas.

Other insulating envelope components work to: control moisture and air infiltration, assure proper ventilation, control noise and maximize the efficiency of your HVAC system.


R-VALUE Our QuietZone® Noise Control Solutions reduce the levels of airborne noises (such as conversations, appliances, TVs and plumbing) transmitted through walls, ceilings and floors. This system also helps eliminate the pops and pings of metal ducts and absorbs the sound waves that can travel through your HVAC system.

NOISE CONTROL R-value means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. In both PINK FIBERGLAS™ and FOAMULAR® Extruded Polystyrene Rigid Foam Insulation, tiny air pockets trapped in the insulation resist the passage of heat—heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. The thicker or more dense the insulation, the more air pockets and the higher the R-value.

AIR INFILTRATION According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), "Before you insulate, you must control air leakage." Reducing air infiltration takes the strain off your heating and cooling units so they don't waste energy by running longer than necessary. The result can be annual energy-cost savings of up to 10%.* VENTILATION When your attic or crawl space is properly ventilated, a positive airflow is created, which allows the house to breathe and helps prevent moisture buildup. MOISTURE CONTROL Showers, cooking, washing and even breathing can put a surprising amount of moisture into the home, according to the EPA. Vapor retarders help control the amount of moisture passing through insulation and collecting inside exterior walls, ceilings and floors. Owens Corning provides products with vapor retarders pre-applied such as kraft-faced insulation. The kraft paper acts as a vapor retarder, and it is already adhered.
