First LEED® Platinum Home in Iowa Features DEMILEC ( USA) LLC.® Spray Foam Insulation
Arlington, TX — DEMILEC ( USA) LLC.®’s SEALECTION Agribalance® spray foam insulation has been selected as the insulation-of-choice for what is planned to be the first LEED® Platinum Home built in the state of Iowa. The home is being developed as a showcase residence in the exclusive Cypress Villages subdivision in Fairfield, Iowa.
SEALECTION Agribalance® spray foam insulation was selected for use in the walls and on the roof deck of the 1,537-square-foot, home because of its energy efficiency and health properties. SEALECTION Agribalance® is noted for being environmentally friendly because it has extremely high energy efficiency ratings; contains no ozone-depleting chemicals, CFCs, HCFCs, fibers, formaldehyde or asbestos; and is noted for promoting a cleaner, quieter, healthier in-home environment because it blocks air movement through walls, ceilings and floors.
A portion of the insulation was donated by manufacturer DEMILEC (USA) LLC.® of Arlington, TX, through its Authorized Contractor, Freedom Foam Insulators. Freedom Foam Insulators is based in Fairfield, Iowa.
“We opted to use SEALECTION Agribalance® high expansion foam, which has a high R-value and delivers a really tight air seal resulting in an energy efficient home,” said Kevin and Reanea Frisbie, Owners of Freedom Foam Insulators. “Now the homeowner can control their interior environment and maintain a more comfortable and healthy home that isn’t as susceptible to the other typical problems, such as molds, allergens and pollutants seen in homes that use traditional insulation.”
