Foam insulation stops household air infiltration by expanding to fill cracks and gaps where standard insulation is ineffective. It forms an airtight, weather-resistant bond that effectively seals drafts while boosting the efficiency of heating and air conditioning systems. Simply put, foam insulation helps to create a more comfortable, energy-efficient home.
Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70 percent of the energy consumed in an average home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of this energy waste. Even homes with fiberglass insulation may have gaps around window frames, pipes, vents and other areas that permit air leakage. Foam actually outperforms fiberglass insulation; it air-seals the home, conserving energy and boosting the efficiency of air conditioners. The result is lowered heating/cooling bills.
Add Value When Renovating
If you're renovating - whether it's building a room addition, installing siding, or upgrading windows, adding insulation during renovation is less costly and more efficient than doing it later. Today's prospective buyers are concerned with the increasing cost of utilities and place a high value on energy-efficient homes.
Reduce Dust and Other Allergens
Adding foam insulation to the home's exterior envelope reduces household air infiltration, limiting the amount of dust and other irritants that can cause allergies to flare up during those tough spring and summer months.
Poor insulation can leave your home drafty with uncomfortable temperature variations. Foam insulation works to eliminate unwanted drafts and maintain a uniform interior temperature year-round.
Get More "Peace and Quiet"
Foam insulation is an effective barrier to noise pollution. It limits the amount of street noise that can permeate your home.
Block Insects and Other Pests
Foam expands to fill cracks and gaps that insects and other pests could use to gain entrance to your home.
