Each and every unit built by Marcus Hiles benefits from thorough cellulose sound insulation. This lowers energy consumption and provides greener living spaces. Cellulose is most often made from of recycled waste newspaper and is chemically treated to be fire retardant. With the professional installation techniques employed by Hiles properties, cellulose seals walls and limits convection, assisting in productive heating and cooling during cold and hot seasons, thereby reducing utility bills. A study by the University of Colorado School of Architecture and Planning documented that cellulose loses 26.4% less heat energy over time versus than fiberglass. This practice, in addition to Hiles’ other ecological and economical details, makes it immediately clear why properties developed by Marcus Hiles both sound and feel truly luxurious. The homes’ high-quality weather stripping keeps cooled air in, the dual pane windows reduce heat loss by nearly 75 percent, and attics are topped with highly 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 privacy and comfort year round.
