QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Why have I never head of air krete insulation before?

Developed and patented in 1984, air krete is both time and test-proven. Until recently, air krete was only available in the United States.

My house is 40 years old and very well made, but not well insulated. Did the builder forget the insulation?

If your home was built before 1978, insulation - especially in the walls - was not a high priority as the cost of energy was relatively low. Times have changed - we are facing a growing energy crisis.

Does an energy crisis really exist?

The world-wide supply of non-renewable fossil fuels is depleting, so the cost for these sources of energy will continue to rise. Conservation is the most economical way to reduce the amount of energy you must buy.

How will insulating my home with air krete reduce my energy consumption?

Uninsulated walls are a major source of energy loss as they are empty and prone to air leaks around electrical and plumbing areas. air krete fills wall cavities 100% to form a solid, air-tight barrier. As a result your energy needs for heating and air-conditioning will be reduced.

What kind of cost savings can I expect?

Your energy needs will be reduced dramatically-between 30% and 50% - depending on the construction of your home. air krete will pay for itself within a few years.

Will insulating with air krete make my home more comfortable?

Yes, air krete fills the empty wall cavities completely to eliminate convective air movement and provide a more uniform temperature throughout your home.

I've heard about expansion foam insulations. How is air krete different?

air krete is foamed, or pumped into wall cavities. It is NOT an expansion foam which can do damage to walls during installation. air krete is a lightweight "foamed cement" which does not shrink or settle and is very safe to use.

How safe is air krete?

air krete does not contain hazardous materials of any kind-it is made from magnesium oxide (a mineral derived from seawater), ceramic talc, a foaming agent and water. air krete is 100% non toxic - it is inorganic, formaldehyde-free, odourless, mould resistant, and non-corrosive. Ideal for those with chemical sensitivities. air krete also exhibits a de-oiling effect which deters insects and rodents.

Is air krete fire-safe?

air krete is 100% fire safe, it will not burn or produce toxic fumes. air krete does not contain hazardous materials of any kind-it is made from magnesium oxide (a mineral derived from seawater), ceramic talc, a foaming agent and water. air krete is 100% non toxic - it is inorganic, formaldehyde-free, odourless, mould resistant, and non-corrosive. Ideal for those with chemical sensitivities. air krete also exhibits a de-oiling effect which deters insects and rodents.

How long does it take to install air krete?
