Often the most poorly insulated area in our home’s thermal envelope is its attic space. Insufficient insulation levels in your attic will result in significant heat gain or heat loss, resulting in very high energy bills. One of the most cost effective means of correcting this problem is by adding additional fiberglass insulation.However, not all fiber glass insulation is created equal. We here at All Florida Insulation understand that and that is why we choose to use Johns Manville as our primary fiber glass manufacturer. Johns Manville has a complete line of certified Formaldehyde-free products. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas with a distinct smell. It is used to make resins, which are adhesives in wood products such as flooring, plywood, and cabinets. Formaldehyde is in fabrics, carpeting, antiseptics, cosmetics and many other products. Some insulation manufactures choose to use a formaldehyde-based adhesive in their fiber glass insulation products. Not Johns Manville, they use an acrylic adhesive to bind the glass fibers together.Less formaldehyde means a healthier environment. More and more, regulatory agencies recommend that you reduce your overall exposure to formaldehyde. Governmental regulators, health research organizations, architects, builders and consumers alike are concerned about how formaldehyde affects indoor air quality. With so many other products containing formaldehyde, it makes sense to use products without it whenever possible. The complete line of JM formaldehyde-free building insulation products have been tested by an independent, nationally recognized laboratory to determine emissions of toxic volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) which JM does not contain.In response to Johns Manville’s innovations in health and safety, many other manufactures have obtained Greenguard certification. Greenguard “low-emitting” certification merely indicates that the formaldehyde emissions from the product meet 50 parts per billion in an office environment. Greenguard’s “Childern and Schools” certification indicates only that the formaldehyde emissions from the product meet 13.5 parts per billion in a classroom environment. Neither Greenguard program is intended or appropriate for residential environments, which have much lower fresh air ventilation rates and thus higher formaldehyde concentrations.With the growing concern over the potential health effects of exposure to VOC’s like formaldehyde, the U.S. EPA has recommended that people should minimize their exposure. JM’s formaldehyde-free fiberglass building insulation is one way you can follow the U.S. EPA’s advice.In addition Johns Manville incorporates an average of 25 percent post-consumer recycled content in North America. Helping to reduce waste from landfills and because they have removed formaldehyde binder-related emissions during manufacturing,their plants are not subject to U.S. EPA hazardous air pollutant regulations.
