The idea came to me when I was working to remodel an old house in Atlanta, Ga. The walls had no insulation and they were 2×4 framed. After putting the R-13 insulation I asked myself what else I can do to increase the R-value of the house. Then the idea of this type of insulation, the Insulating Board System, came to mind. It is an insulation applied to the inside or outside of the frame in addition to the regular insulation. The insulation is glue to the board (wood, cement board, siding, and even sheetrock) which help increase the R-value of the house, making it more energy efficient, better sound proof, less vibration, and give more structure resistance.
FIG. 1 is a view of the 4×8 panel having in the middle insulation.
FIG. 2 is the view of the 4×8 sheetrock panel where the insulation is attach to.
On wood panels. The most used material for construction is the 4×8, ½′ OSB panels or plywood, by applying the insulation on the back of the panel the R-value increases with almost 20% for a regular 2×4 wall structure.
More that the insulation could be inserted between layers of wood making the result panel more resistant and in the same time helping to the R-value of the construction, making the house more energy efficient. There are so many variable that can be achieved by the manufactory by playing with the thickness of the wood panel and with thickness of the insulation having as result a product that could be custom made.
On cement boards, insulation could be used to make a barrier between the subfloor and the floor to help with insulating bathrooms floors, kitchen floors and other applications.
Even the siding of the house could be improved by having a special insulation on the back to help increase the insulation factor of a house.
On the sheetrock board. The same system can be used for insulating the interior of the house. The exterior walls can be better protected by having an insulation apply to the back of the sheetrock raising the R-value with an additional 20%.
The insulation is applied to the back of the panels, or it could be inserted between the layers of the wood to achieve the desired product. The insulation could be in form of: panels—as the polystyrene glue to the panel, or foam which could by pour between the layers. The thickness of the layer could be decided after the destination and the specification of the panel.
