Illinois Energy Cedar Ridge Insulated Siding System Installed with Tyvek® Homewrap.
Wrapping a home with Tyvek® is like putting a windbreaker (Tyvek®) over a sweater (your home’s insulation). You’ll be cold wearing only a sweater on a windy day, but adding a windbreaker keeps you warmer.
An average 2500 square-foot home has more than 1/2 mile of cracks and crevices in the wall cavity. That’s a lot of opportunity for air and water to get inside your home. With an average 8 mph wind, your home could lose up to 30% installed R-value.
Tyvek® Weatherization Systems can help:
- Reduce nasty drafts
- Make insulation work more effectively
- Cut energy bills
- Keep water out
- Let interior moisture escape to the outside
- Prevent mold, mildew and rot
