The Problem

M/I Homes wanted to improve the energy efficiency of their homes to qualify for Energy Star.

Project Solution: 

M/I Homes, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders is committed to insuring that new home buyers receive quality-built homes of enduring value.

Gale Insulation of Oldsmar has worked closely with M/I Homes to help them create energy efficiency building envelope packages that meet the requirements of Energy Star, while keeping their costs down to a minimum. For masonry walls, M/I Homes chose Fi-Foil’s VR Plus Shield™ Hi-Perm reflective insulation, which achieves an R-7.0 when installed on 1-1/2” furring or metal hat channel.
