Who doesn’t like to save money when provided the opportunity? Well, as a homeowner, all you have to do is take one look at those monthly heating and cooling bills to see opportunity knocking. How much of your home’s monthly budget is going toward energy usage? And as costs rise, it’s probably not going to get much better. However, it might if you take matters into your own hands and take steps to make your home more energy efficient.
While there are numerous possibilities such as installing a new HVAC system or upgrading your windows, the easiest and most budget-friendly method is to install polyurethane spray foam insulation to your home. Spray foam can be used in attics, exterior walls, and even crawl spaces to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler on hot summer days.
The material’s advantage over other insulation products is its unique composition. It can provide a much higher R-value per square inch than more conventional insulation such as fibreglass batts. And because it’s sprayed, it can reach the nooks and crannies that are often missed with other products. The insulation can also be installed much faster – an attic can be done in a fraction of the time that a crew might take to place batts in place.
So how much can you save by installing polyurethane spray foam insulation? Well, that can depend on the size of your home, your heating and cooling system, and the cost of its fuel source, but reductions of up to 60 percent are not uncommon. That might make opening those monthly energy bills a little bit easier and you’ll also be doing your part to help the environment. Installing spray foam insulation is a win/win situation.
