Heating Energy Savings: Residential Single Family Home Remodel Projects
When installed in accordance with DuPont Installation Guidelines, DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 significantly contributes to home energy savings and improves comfort in the home. The addition of Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 can also significantly reduce a retrofitted home’s HERS rating.
Energy modeling was completed to simulate a reside/remodel project using a REM/Rate™ analysis, which is the standard software used for HERS ratings. Cities representative of two climate zones were modeled. Results were generated for two typical types of single family residential dwellings.
