Will I save money if I insulate with Polyurethane foam?

YES. The installed cost of spray foam is about 2-3 times higher than fiberglass batts or blown-in insulation. However the higher initial cost is partially offset because you will save in your heating fuel and electric bills. Studies suggest that homes insulated with spray polyurethane foam use 20% to 40% less energy than homes insulated with conventional insulation.

What is Polyurethane foam?

Polyurethane foam is a 2 part liquid that when sprayed on expands to form a monolithic, seamless lightweight barrier. Is is the only insulating material guaranteed to seal hard to reach places such as between pipes and crawl spaces.

How long does an insulation project take?

Projects completion times vary greatly depending on what needs to be done and the size of the building. On average, a 2500 sq.ft. home can take two or three days.

What areas of my home should be insulated?

Insulation is not just for attics and outside walls. Insulation should also be installed in other areas of your home such as ceilings with unheated spaces, basement walls, floors above vented crawl spaces, cathedral ceilings, floors over unheated garages or porches, knee walls, and in between interior walls (especially bathrooms), ceilings or floors for extra sound control.

What does insulation actually do for my home?

Insulation keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, because insulation resists the flow of heat. Heat is a form of energy and always seeks a cooler area – flowing out of the home in the winter and into the home in the summer. By reducing heat flow, a home uses less energy for heating and cooling.

A well-insulated home increases the overall comfort of the home and adds to its resale value. Whether your home is new or old, it pays to insulate.
