AmeriSus homes use SIP’s for their exterior walls but still use insulation elsewhere such as in the attic and below the flooring in crawl spaces. We found that everyone treated insulation as a commodity where R-values and thickness were the primary consideration. Everyone, that is until we came upon the creative minds at Knauf Insulation and their sustainable EcoBatt Glasswool Insulation. Their insulation does everything other companies products do except that it does’t use petroleum based chemicals. Knauf’s Insulation is made from sand and post-consumer recycled bottle glass.
