•Qualifies for the Florida Green Building Coalition stamp
•Icynene Insulation Details
•Air leakage due to Wind Pressure and The Stack Effect is the largest cause of energy
  loss in the home. This house is totally sealed which eliminates the stack effect

•No vapor barrier needed (that could be easily penetrated)
•Effective noise blocker
•Can help you qualify for an energy efficient mortgage
         •5% through doors and windows - reduced
         •10% Attic - eliminated

•Fiberglass – 5.5” R19 > Laboratory conditions.    Fiberglass is 37 times more
  permeable to air than Icynene. Equal R value does not mean equal performance
  and comfort. No fiberglass insulation is used in this house.

•R19 Batt insulation under extreme conditions has been found to perform as low at R9
•Envirodesic – independently certified to be safe for people who suffer from allergies,
