Save your pocketbook and the planet with spray foam insulation in your home
Approximately 56% of energy used in a home goes to heating and cooling and uncontrolled air leakage and in a typical home this can account for as much as 30 to 50 percent of heating and cooling costs.
Closed-cell spray foam, such as Walltite, is both an insulation and an air sealant or air barrier, meaning it effectively closes off all nooks and crannies that let air escape, saving your pocketbook and the planet!
Additionally, the use of spray foam means that HVAC sizing can be reduced as much as 35%, with no loss of comfort or efficiency – an additional saving.
Air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions are by-products of energy production and consumption and can have an impact on the environment. Households may choose to reduce their environmental impact by curbing their energy use, which can also result in less money being spent by the household on energy. In 2007, households spent on average $1,147 on electricity and $610 on natural gas. Contrary to popular belief, it is more expensive to heat than it is to cool, largely because air conditioners are typically 4x more energy efficient than a typical furnace and in our climate we heat for several months of every year, whereas air conditioning is usually limited to a couple of months only.
Energy efficiency, savings, and environmental benefits are all good reasons but let’s not overlook the no. 1 reason – comfort – foam comfort! No matter how beautiful your home may look, if you’re not comfortable – we’re not comfortable. That’s the Foam Comfort guarantee!
