Minnesota home builder, Hans Hagen Homes, is making their homes more energy efficient with the introduction of Closed Cell insulation. - Hans Hagen Homes, a residential land developer offering luxury custom homes and townhouses for sale in Minnesota and Wisconsin, is making their homes more energy efficient with the introduction of Closed Cell insulation as part of their Gold Standard.

Closed Cell insulation is a hardened foam that is sprayed into the stud cavity for a seamless insulation barrier. The high compressive strength provided by Closed Cell insulation allows houses to maintain consistent indoor temperature with significantly lower energy costs.

"With energy costs continuing to increase, Hans Hagen Homes feels that it is extremely important to build energy efficient homes," said Nate Smith, VP.

The advantages of using Closed Cell insulation when compared to traditional insulation material include:

  • Higher insulation value
  • Reduction in vapor transmission
  • Reduction in growth of mold and infiltration of allergens.

"The addition of closed cell foam in our new homes supports our healthy home concept and has the added benefit of building a long lasting home that is not subject to wet rot from vapor infiltrating into the wall and condensing on the sheathing," said Smith. "The addition of these features was accomplished without increasing the selling price of our new homes which currently range from under $200,000 to $500,000."

All Hans Hagen Homes are now being built with Closed Cell insulation. New home shoppers can learn how effective closed cell insulation is at any of Hans Hagen Homes' 12 decorated model homes in Minnesota and Wisconsin, open daily from Noon.
