Regardless of conditioned or unconditioned attics, managing the energy flow used to heat and cool a home is largely based on how the home is – or is not – insulated. In climates that typically have conditioned attics, options have been historically limited with many professionals defaulting to spray polyurethane foam (SPF) solution. However, a recent case study from KB Home illustrates how the company partnered with Owens Corning to successfully identify a fiberglass solution that maximized performance, energy Energy Efficiency and safety. Ultimately, the fiberglass applications delivered high-performance conditioned attics and increased the comfort, durability and energy Energy Efficiency of the homes.
