“Last spring, 2005, I installed 5/8” P2000 Insulation on my 2500 sq. ft. cathedral style roof. We removed the existing shingles, installed P2000, strapped over the P2000 and installed metal roofing.
When the hot weather arrived, I noticed that my air conditioner ran very infrequently. When it did turn on, it was for a very short period of time. Prior to installing P2000, my budget for electric heating and air conditioning was $375 per month. In October of 2005 I received a letter from Ontario Hydro stating that my monthly budget had been reduced to $325. Two months later I received another letter telling me that my monthly payments had been further reduced to $275. In late March I received a third letter explaining that my energy consumption was significantly lower than previous years and that I need not pay Ontario Hydro anything for the next two months.
Thanks to P2000 it seems that my energy costs will be approximately 50% of the previous year”

“During January of 2007, we renovated the 3rd floor of our older home. As part of the renovations we were insulating the space, and decided to use the P2000 Insulation System. We used 1” P2000 for both the walls and the ceiling, with it as the only form of insulation in the walls and ceiling over empty cavities.
We are happy with the results. The area was very warm during the winter, and this last week has been the hottest this summer, but not in our house. The house is cool and sleeping on the 3rd floor is like sleeping in a tent…..without the heat!
The contractor that installed the P-2000 was very pleased with the ease of the install and that they did not have to wear protective gear like they do with fiberglass. We are very pleased with the results so far.”

“I constructed a new 1420 sq ft house this last winter (2007-08). Since this is a house I plan on staying in for a while, I decided to implement energy efficient features into the house design. This included a Geothermal heat pump, ICF Basement, and a new innovative wall system incorporating P2000 Insulation. The multi-layer wall consisted of an outer 2 x 4 wall (structural) filled with 3.5” fibreglass, then a continuous layer of 5/8 P2000 Insulation on the inside (to act as a vapour barrier), with a further 2 x 3 inner wall with an empty cavity (with studs placed horizontally to simplify the installation of plumbing / electrical lines and eliminates penetration of the vapour barrier).
The ceiling construction will have 1″ P2000 in addition to fibreglass blow-in. However, I have currently installed only the P2000 to see just how well the product would perform (I even installed a meter on my Geothermal heating system to record it’s energy consumption).
Over the first four months of the year (Winter), my heating bills have averaged below $50 per month!
P2000 really did the job and I would recommend it to everyone.”

Allied Systems Inc., was recently employed to suggest ways to lower gas consumption in an old farmhouse.
The uninsulated house consumed a total of 200.5 therms (therm=one million BTU) of input. At $16.00 per MCF this calculated out to $3,768.00 for 2006-2007 heating season.
The house was insulated with P2000. All ceilings were insulated along with some readily accessible walls and floors over uninsulated crawl spaces. The installation was done last fall, before the start of the heating season. The total gas required to heat the house for last winter was 132.75 therms at an approximate cost of $2498.00 for a one year savings of $1,270.00.
Also the P2000 was much easier to work with than the traditional fiberglass products..We will continue to recommend this product to our customers”

“In July of 2007, due to a leakage problem, we had the roof replaced on our building at 242 River St. West (8800 sq ft) and at our machine shop building at 404 High St. West (3500 sq ft).
We went with a liner style roofing material (like an industrial pool liner), which offers an insignificant R-Value therefore we chose to use P2000. The P2000 was installed over the existing roofing and then the liner style roofing material was installed.
Although it is difficult to calculate any differences in energy savings from day to day or month-to-month, because of variables such as temperature, reading dates, estimated useage, etc., we have tracked as closely as possible and have determined that the savings in gas consumption from March to October are as follows: 242 River St. West 29% less, and 20% less at 404 high St. West.
We do not have air conditioning at the River St. location, but during the hot weather, it stayed much cooler than in the past. Glen and Vic have also advised me that according to environment Canada, the average temperature during the past winter was lower. This is a huge saving that will go on for years.
Are we happy we used P2000? What do you think?”
