Nothing like a warm bath

Have you ever thought about a nice warm bath after a long day at work? Would you like the water to stay warmer longer? Think about the small details when you are planning a house – make sure you insulate behind the bathtub. This will not only allow you to enjoy a nice long warm bath, but also increase the energy efficiency of your home. Often this area is overlooked during construction because the plumber almost always installs the tub before the insulator comes to the job.

Insulation installed behind tub / shower surround

This home uses fiberglass insulation behind the tub / shower insert. It is important to know that they also used rigid foam on the exterior of the home to reduce thermal bridging and lots of caulk to air seal.
