Energy efficiency through insulation is the simplest and most cost effective way to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in residential and commercial applications.
By reducing energy consumption, insulation cuts pollution from the utility infrastructure, slashing carbon dioxide emission by 780 million tons every year. This is the equivalent to the annual electricity use of over 90 million homes. Knauf Insulation’s goal is to provide products and services that conserve energy and preserve natural resources for a sustainable future.
Insulation saves 12 times more energy the first year in use than it takes to manufacture it—and it continues to save that much each year from then on. In fact, if all existing and new homes in the U.S. were insulated to just the 2000 International Energy Conservation Code, the U.S. would save 800 trillion BTU’s each year—the equivalent of 75,000 supertankers of oil.
