We’re proud to stand behind the energy efficiency of each Beazer home we build, because each home in every community is tested, exceeding the latest ENERGY STAR® standards. It wouldn’t be possible without partners, like DuPontTM Tyvek®, who supply the highest quality products that go into each Beazer home.
We’ve partnered with DuPont™ Tyvek® to use the entire HomeWrap® system. On the cutting edge of material science, the system helps prevent the infiltration of air and water but lets water vapor escape to prevent rot and mold inside walls.
Tyvek® HomeWrap® can contribute to improved building durability by helping to protect homes against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate the exterior cladding.
It can also reduce home energy costs by controlling air flow and water intrusion, which helps insulation work better, allowing the HVAC system to work more efficiently. It’s a house wrap engineered to keep homes cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry all year round.
How It Works
The unique nonwoven structure of Tyvek® HomeWrap® makes it breathable, allowing moisture vapor to pass through. This helps promote drying in wall systems, to help prevent mold and water damage. In addition, Tyvek® HomeWrap® stops air movement through the walls, helping insulation perform to provide a more energy-efficient home.
What it Means for Homeowners
The more energy efficient your home is, the lower your utility bills become. And that contributes to lowering your total cost of owning your dream home.
