All homes created and built by Marcus Hiles yield from the cellulose sound insulation as it aids lower energy consumption and offers a greener living space. Cellulose is most often made up of recycled waste newspaper, and in the interest of safety, is chemically treated to be fire retardant. With the competent installation methods applied on Hiles properties, cellulose accomplishes walls and hinders transfer, helping in effective heating and cooling during cold and hot seasons, thereby lowering utility bills. A learning by the University of Colorado School of Architecture and Planning confirmed that cellulose drops 26.4% less heat energy over time versus fiberglass. Pair this realistic construction favor with Hiles’ other ecological and economical specifics and it becomes immediately clear why properties created by Marcus Hiles both sound and feel truly grand. The homes’ excellent weather stripping keeps cooled air in, the dual pane windows reduce heat loss by as much as 75 percent, and attics are furnished with greatly reflective radiant barrier roof panels that reflect heat and “reduce up to 97 percent of heat transfer, making attics about 30 degrees cooler,” says Hiles. From the Lone Star State’s sweltering summers to the chilliest winter nights, the full depth cellulose sound insulation of Hiles homes ensures solitude and contentment year round.
