Fiberglass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation systems are proven energy efficient technologies which after the initial production require no energy to save energy. Unlike other “energy-saving” products that merely claim to reduce the amount of energy they use, fiberglass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation’s major purpose is to save energy. Insulation begins working from the time it is installed, lasts for the life of the building, and requires no further assistance unless damaged.
Here are some additional interesting facts about the energy saving benefits of fiberglass, rock wool and slag wool insulation:
- Insulation reduces average home heating and cooling costs by around 20%.
- Insulation currently in place in U.S. buildings reduces the amount of carbon dioxide by 780 million tons each year.
– This is the equivalent of over 150 coal-fired power plants.
– This is the equivalent to the electricity use of over 90 million homes for one year.
– This is the equivalent to the output of 1.645 billion barrels of oil or the energy equivalent of 5.5 barrels of oil per American.
