Today there are quite a few different kinds of insulation available. Among this variety of materials, rigid foam insulation has become very popular for its durability, high insulating value and other benefits as well.
Unlike fiberglass batt insulation, rigid foam boards never lose insulating value by settling or compressing.
Foam boards shed water instead of soaking it up like cellulose and fiberglass insulation do; and foam insulation won’t support mold or provide a home for mice, insects and other pests.
SilverGlo sets a new standard for rigid foam insulation in West Virginia
Recognizing the critical role that rigid foam insulation plays in improving home energy performance, Dr. Energy Saver has developed its own brand of rigid foam insulation.
The first thing you notice about SilverGlo is that it looks different from other brands of rigid foam insulation. When SilverGlo boards are made, they are infused with graphite powder to improve insulating value. Each board also has a reflective coating that acts as an effective radiant barrier. A 2-in.-thick board is rated at R-9, or R-11 if there’s an air space adjacent to the radiant barrier. Thicker boards are also available for applications where more R-value is required.
SilverGlo insulation is very versatile
SilverGlo insulation can be used as crawl space and basement insulation in addition to attic insulation. Boards are easy to cut and install. Taping seams between boards creates an effective air barrier, providing yet another energy-saving feature.
Insulation plays a major role in improving home comfort and reducing the cost of heating and cooling. SilverGlo is one of many different insulating and air-sealing products available from Dodrill Comfort & Energy Solutions.
