All homes cultivated and built by Marcus Hiles avail from the cellulose sound insulation as it assists to lower energy consumption and offers a greener living space. Cellulose is most often formed of recycled waste newspaper, and in the interest of safety, is chemically treated to be fire retardant. With the proven installation executions employed on Hiles properties, cellulose closes walls and prohibits transposition, instrumental in useful heating and cooling during cold and hot seasons, thereby reducing utility bills. A review by the University of Colorado School of Architecture and Planning tested that cellulose gives up 26.4% less heat energy over time versus fiberglass. Combine this prudent construction preference with Hiles’ other ecological and economical chapters and it becomes immediately clear why properties produced by Marcus Hiles both sound and feel truly fancy. The homes’ first-rate weather stripping keeps cooled air in, the dual pane windows reduce heat loss by as much as 75 percent, and attics are harnessed with profoundly 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 separateness and convenience year round.
