The U.S. Green Building Council says a green home should use less energy and natural resources, create less waste and be healthier for the people inside. Insulation advertised as green or containing renewable or recycled materials isn’t really green if it doesn’t:

  • Maintain an air barrier over time to minimize air leakage and maximize energy efficiency
  • Contribute to a healthier home by managing moisture, limiting potential for mold growth and improving indoor air quality
  • Minimize the use of gases and VOCs that contribute to climate change or ozone depletion

Customers are asking about it and whenever possible, choosing green options.  Companies are looking to feature any aspect of their product that they can call green, from production of it to the materials within the product. 

With everyone rushing to be the greenest of the green, it’s important that customers get an accurate picture about the products out there.  The truth is, at this time, there is no perfect product that is 100% green from start to finish.  We clearly have our preferences on insulation products. These preferences are based on a variety of characteristics and years of experience in the insulation industry.  While some green products may be made of mostly recycled material, they can have many other weaknesses that will lead to less efficient home over time and costly problems down-the-road.


At Tasos Construction LLC, we are committed to being upfront about the primary products out there and explaining the green aspects of each.

“S.C. Phelps provided insulation for a 1919 Portland heights homes that I was remodeling.  We decided upon Icynene insulation because of the both the efficiency and the environmental reasons.  We also had S.C. Phelps install an energy recovery system to re-circulate air and prevent the loss of warm air in the winter and cool air in the summer.

The installation was right on schedule and done in a professional manner.   We are just completing our first winter in the house and have been delighted with the results.  With the first warm days of summer, we have noticed that the attic, and overall the house, is much cooler.”
