What Is GWP
(GWP) A measure of how much heat a substance can trap in the atmosphere.
With a global warming potential (GWP) equal to 1, its widespread adoption could save about 60 MILLION metric tons per year of CO2 equivalent, comparable to eliminating carbon dioxide emissions from more than 11.8 million cars every year.
Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. The Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling (space conditioning) accounts for approximately 56% of the energy used in the typical American home. Roughly one third of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors.
An environmentally friendly home is a great benefit for you, your family and the environment. Take an active role in helping reduce greenhouse gases, thus slowing the effects of global warming.
By properly sealing your home you reduce the amount of oil that is needed to produce electricity and the carbon emitted into the environment.
