The SPFA, a building materials association, is urging American consumers and builders to assist in asthma prevention through the use of responsible insulation materials.

With 26 million Americans affected (including more than 7 million children) with the chronic condition, the alliance seeks to educate all on real impact quality building materials can have on prevention.

The SPFA represents the spray foam insulation industry - a class of products that superbly seals the home, helping to prevent asthma in two ways:

2) reducing the air polluting (i.e. asthma trigger) byproducts of fossil fuel use for heating and cooling the home.
