Don’t let an under-insulated attic drain your home of money during heating and cooling seasons! Just 15.5 inches of Owens Corning’s new AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation can save you up to 20% on your heating and cooling costs.* Fiber glass insulation is non-combustible and non-corrosive by nature, which means that it will never settle or lose its energy-saving abilities. In addition, AttiCat™ Insulation provides an amazing R-49 value rating.
Loosefill insulation from Owens Corning, also called “blown-in” insulation, is made of virgin PINK fiber glass insulation. It is used in new construction and in existing homes. Since fiber glass insulation is non-combustible and non-corrosive by nature, PINK fiber glass loosefill insulation offers significant advantages over other loosefill insulation products:
- It will not settle or lose its energy-saving abilities over time.
- It does not require the addition of fire-retardant chemicals that can promote corrosion of pipes or wires.
- It will not rot or decay, support fungus or mold growth or provide sustenance for insects or vermin.
Owens Corning R-Value Recommendations
As a way to maximize the energy efficiency of both new and existing homes, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published R-value recommendations based on specific heating and cooling needs and the cost of energy across the country—zip code by zip code.
It’s important to know that the DOE recommendations represent the necessary R-values to optimize your home’s energy efficiency. You may find that these recommendations differ from the building codes. State energy codes are merely minimum insulation requirements for new construction.
