“We returned from a 3 day trip at mid-day in temperatures above 90 degrees. We had set the thermostat to 83 degrees before we left – the temperature in the house was 78 degrees. Lol – wish we had done this sooner. We also had Greenstar insulate the garage door as well as the attic – on a 90 degree day it was 81 in the garage and 86 in the attic!”
GreenStar Panels are designed to protect the building envelope and keep the heat from ever entering your attic.
Attics can easily reach temperatures in excess of 160 degrees, which in turn heats up your entire home. Most Electric costs are a result of trying to overcome that heat. GreenStar Panels have the solution by expelling the heat before it gets into your attic, reducing the running time that your HVAC system & lowering your cost!
Spray polyurethane foam insulation (SPF) is a type of insulation designed to seal spaces–specifically, ceiling cavities and attics–from air movement. Oftentimes, these spaces get extra hot from the sun and that hot air seeps into your home, resulting in higher energy costs.
SPF is manufactured and applied on-site from two liquid chemicals. Since it always retains its shape and is purported to last a long time, it’s become popular in the Tampa area in recent years for homeowners and businesses looking to cutenergy costs. In some cases, it’s been shown to make a huge difference–especially during those sweltering summer months that Florida is renowned for.
There are two types of insulation: open-cell spray foam and closed-cell spray foam. Both have pros and cons for application.
