Owens Corning of Toledo, OH has introduced EnergyComplete(TM), a home insulation and air sealing system designed to combine savings, safety and affordability. "Buildings are the number one user of energy in the United States, consuming 40 percent of the country's energy resources - more energy than industry, more energy than transportation," says Karel Czanderna, group president of Owens Corning Building Materials.
EnergyComplete is designed to meet this challenge by providing consistent room-to-room temperature. The sealing aspects of the system are also designed to reduce the conditions that can lead to mold growth and provide a first line of defense against pests and insects.
For existing homes, the EnergyComplete system can be installed in attics, basements, crawl spaces, or during a home addition or remodeling project. Homeowners are also eligible for a 30-percent tax credit on the cost of the system for a maximum credit of $1,500 under the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
