The Energy Efficient Foam Coalition’s (EEFC) mission is to promote the benefits of foam insulation. Foam insulation products are critical tools that architects, contractors and building owners can use to meet the stringent energy code requirements of today and tomorrow. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that heating and cooling account for approximately 56 percent of the energy used in the average U.S. home. Gaps, holes and air leaks can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste. High-performance foam insulation can help to effectively seal gaps and close air leaks, maintain indoor air temperature, and reduce a building’s energy usage.
The EEFC’s members are in the business of providing energy-efficient foam insulation that satisfies fire safety standards while supporting the health and safety of occupants and workers. The fire performance standards of foam insulation were upheld during two recent code development processes conducted under the auspices of the International Code Council. Learn more about the fire performance of foam insulation on our FAQ page.
The EEFC is part of the American Chemistry Council.
