Advanced Insulation Technology Keeps Castle & Cooke Homes Energy Efficient

“Out of sight, out of mind,” is pretty much how most people view home insulation technology. Not Castle & Cooke. We understand how important good insulation is in maintaining a home’s energy efficiency and comfort. That’s why all new Castle & Cooke homes feature “Blown-in-Blanket” (BIBS) insulation technology.

Typical “batt” insulation found on many new homes can result in voids where the insulation must be cut to fit around pipes, wiring and other objects inside walls and ceilings. With BIBS insulation this problem is virtually eliminated as “the system forms a seamless blanket of insulation that completely fills around pipes, wires, and other objects inside the cavity to increase thermal efficiency and eliminate costly voids and air gaps.” Not only does BIBS fill almost every nook and cranny, it also provides a +2 added R-Value; and the higher the R-Value the greater the insulating power.

By using the latest and most efficient construction technologies available Castle & Cooke ensures your new home will live up to its fullest potential and your every expectation.
