Whenever you save energy, you not only save money, you also reduce the demand for such fossil fuels as coal, oil, and natural gas. Less burning of fossil fuels also means lower emissions of carbon dioxide, the primary contributor to global warming.

The Benefits of DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™

Not only will wrapping a home with DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ help create a stronger, sustainable home, the material is also a continuous air barrier which helps seal the home to reduce air leakage by 10 to 30%. The result is a significant economic benefit to consumers on their energy bills.

Studies have shown that air leakage accounts for 25% to 40% of the energy used for cooling and heating a typical residence. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap helps control air coming into the building to preserve insulation values which in turn saves 1n energy consumption. A home wrapped in DuPont™ Tyvek® will maintain 94% of its installed insulation value compared to only 37% for a home with no weather barrier.

Stay Cool, Save Money (bring on the summer)

While many homebuyers rarely consider what goes on behind their walls, they should. By installing DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™, the material provides a barrier that reflects radiant heat, keeping the inside of the building cooler, thus reducing the air conditioning load. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap ™ assures consumers that their home includes a high-quality, energy-efficient material for greater cost-savings and long term building value.

DuPont Tyvek ThermaWrap Helps Contribute to a Healthy Living Environment

Mold, wood rot and mildew can contribute to unhealthy indoor air quality. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ helps protect against these problems by helping stop wind and rain from getting in and by giving moisture a way out. Better ventilation of wall cavities helps prevent the formation of mold and mildew, helping to improve indoor air quality. That can help make your house a healthy living environment.
