Every homeowner deals with the rollercoaster of heating and cooling bills. In fact, there really isn’t a way around it. We all adjust our thermostats and use tricks just to save some money on our energy bills. Also, the average homeowner has probably looked into solar, water-saving toilets, or other things to just SAVE MONEY.
Most don’t know about the one insulation technology saving homeowners hundreds.
Why Spray Foam Insulation is the BEST Energy Saving Hack
When you think of insulation, what comes to mind? Maybe some pink, cotton candy type material. Possibly some type of insulation being blown out of a tube. Often times, we hardly think of it at all. However, what you don’t know, can hurt you.
The average homeowner spends around $2,000 on energy for his or her house. 50% of that is from heating and cooling. Most of us know what we spend each month, but that number can be alarming. Even, if that doesn’t bother you, the next facts should. If the unsealed parts of a house were put together, they would be the size of an NBA sized basketball.
Imagine money just flowing in and out of a hole in your house and you have a good picture. What can be done?
Spray Foam Insulation.
What is Spray Foam?
Let’s let the American Chemistry Council give a little intro.
40% energy loss!
Imagine what could be done with all of that money. Maybe some could go to savings, house upgrades, or a nice family vacation.
Spray foam fixes that problem.
By combining two materials, isocyanate and polyol resin, insulation is born. Also, the chemical reaction makes the foam expand to 30-60 times its initial volume! Why is that a good thing? Expanding insulation fills those gaps causing the 40% energy loss!
So, what are some benefits of high-performance spray foam?
- Reduce Energy Costs
- Reduce Outside Pollutants
- Minimize Outside Noise
- AC 377 Appendix X Compliant
