Commercial Retrofit

Every day, more commercial buildings are being designed with Demilec USA’s spray foam insulation. Owners, architects and builders rely on spray foam insulation to reduce energy costs, in addition to helping control moisture, indoor air quality and air infiltration.

What about existing buildings?

Can spray foam help provide the same benefits in an existing structure? Absolutely!

Existing property owners and managers are well aware of the costs of energy and are learning more about how to reduce their usage every day. Deep energy retrofit and energy expenditures per square foot are becoming hot topics in commercial real estate.

Energy expenditures per sq ft of office space by building age – 2009

Age Cost
0-29 years $2.10
30-39 years $2.40
40+ years $2.50


Energy consumption expenditures per sq ft by selected city – 2009

City Cost
New York, NY $4.32
Los Angeles, CA $2.84
Chicago, IL $1.72


According to the US Department of Energy, heating, cooling and lighting make up almost half of all energy used in commercial real estate. The Department of Energy also states that up to 40% of energy loss is due to air infiltration. Lowering these costs and creating a more comfortable space by creating an air barrier is exactly what spray foam from Demilec USA can do.
