Milex 2.0

Amarillo's patented insulation product

100% green product.

Milex is made and produced using all-natural methods. It is 100% biodegradable, renewable, and free of toxic chemicals. 

Never need to insulate again.

Unlike traditional insulators, Milex is virtually unshrinkable. Fiberglass and cellulose is nice and fluffy when it is first installed because the insulation is full or air. Over time though, these insulators lose air and begin to flatten. After 10 years, you will have lost around 50% of its orignal r-value.  Since Milex maintains it’s air quanity, it also maintains it’s r-value for the life of the home.

made from milo crops farmed in the texas panhandle

Milex is made from Milo, or sorghum crops farmed right here in the Texas panhandle. Putting Milex 2.0 in your home will not only give you a great insulator, but you will also be supporting the Panhandles farm industry. 

Sprayfoam

Reduced Noise pollution.

Spray foam is the best insulator for reducing noise in your warehouse or barn. Big empty warehouses can get quite noisy. Our spray foam insulation will dampen the sounds of heavy machinery operations to create a safer enviroment. 

Open Cell Vs. Close Cell.

There are two different types of spray foam options available: closed-cell polyurethane and open-cell polyurethane. It’s considered a “closed” cell due to its high R-value. The R-value is the material’s capacity to insulate and resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. Open cell has a lesser R-value than closed cell. A typical closed-cell spray foam will have more than 6.0 pounds per inch, whereas an open-cell spray foam will have the range of 3.6 to 3.8 pounds per inch. Open-cell will expand as soon as it’s applied, making it the perfect foam for hard to reach areas. 

Barns and metal buildings

We do not recommend using spray foam in residential homes. Research shows that open-cell spray foam poses risks in colder climates. As cold roof sheathing is contacted by indoor motisure through the foam, the spray foam traps the moisture against the roof, which results in eventual decay. For this reason, Amarillo insulation will only do spray foam in metal buildings and barns as most of these types of structures are made with metal, and not wood or roofign matieral.

rockwool

rockwool insulation - amarillo new construction

higher r-value per inch than fiberglass

Insulation made from rockwool has a minimum R-value of 3.0 per inch, while insulation made of fiberglass has a minimum R-value of 2.2 per inch of thickness. A further benefit of Rockwool insulation is the fact that it does not sag or settle over time, so its R-value does not diminish. If fiberglass insulation is not properly maintained or exposed to moisture, its R-value often decreases over time. 

Moisture, mold, and mildew Resistant

Mold and mildew cannot grow on rockwool insulation because it is inorganic, so they lack any source of energy to grow. It is also proven that Rockwool products are resistant to fungi, reducing the risk of users finding a harmful biological problem and opening up the wall.

great for sound proofing

A characteristic of Rockwool insulation is its density, which provides soundproofing. The density of fiberglass insulation is 0.5 to 1.0 pounds per cubic foot, allowing it to reduce sound levels by 4 to 10 decibels. Approximately 10 to 15 decibels of noise can be consistently dampened by using rockwool insulation, which has a density of 1.7 pounds per cubic foot.

Amarillo climate zone

The IECC stands for International Energy Conservation Code. The document was created by the International Code Council in 2000. This document provides guidelines and prescriptions for the construction of energy-efficient homes. As part of the code, minimum standards and specifications are set for insulation, window specifications, heating and cooling equipment, lighting devices, and other items that use energy.

Weather factors such as winter temperatures, summer temperatures, humidity, and rainfall define climate zones. Amarillo, Texas is considered a “hot and dry” climate. Potter and Randall counties are classified as climate zone 4 areas. Climate zone 4 requires an R-49 insulation factor for home and commerical attic spaces. R-factors vary depending on the space being insulated. Walls require less r-value than attic spaces.

Replaced attic insulation in attic. Crew worked quickly and efficiently. Got the R factor to 38. This has made a significant difference in the interior of the house! It stays cleaner and the air seems fresher. I’m anxious for the next utility bill to see what difference is post-new insulation!

I have noticed a significant improvement in my home. Very professional, on time, worked nonstop except for a lunch break the first day (removing all old insulation- it was a MESS!). Worked nonstop the 2nd day – blowing in the insulation. I don’t hesitate to recommend to anyone and everyone.

We recently had additional insulation added in our attic space. There was a noticeable difference. The installers arrived on time and completed the project within a couple of hours. I recommend Milex to everyone considering a new house or additional protection in their home.

frequently asked questions

does insulation provide soundproofing

Yes, when you are building a new home, one of the best ways to improve the acoustics of the home is to properly install insulation. Any insulation serves to stop or slow sound waves. That being said, different types of insulation have different soundproofing capabilities. For example, Rockwool is about 20% more effective for soundproof than fiberglass. The r-value being installed plays a role in the amount of sound proofing your home will have. The insualtion r-value should meet IECC code. Be sure to consult your insulation technician.

should insulation be repalced

Traditional insulation like fiberglass or cellulose deteriorates after 10-12 years, so it is recommended that you have it replaced by then. When insulation deteriorates, it loses it’s r-value, or insulation factor. Meaning, after 10 years these insulators are 50% less effective. Milex, however, is virtually unshrinkable as the air inside each thermal puff is trapped inside thousands of tiny pockets. Once you install Milex in your home, you won’t need to worry about replacing your home insulation again, as Milex maintains it’s r-value for the duration of the home.

how does insulation help save money on bills

When your home is air tight, meaning you have insulation filling the cracks and seams in your home, your home is able to keep energy in, and weather out. Warm or cool air can seap in or out of your home very easily. Therefore, the more energy you lose, the more your unit is working to replace what has been lost. It is not advised that you replace your AC unit before installing new insulation in order to lessen the sting of your energy bill month to month. Having a properly insulated home is a sure fire way to drastically decrease your spending on energy.
