Spray Foam Insulation

Jun 3, 2008
The average family in the United States spends around $1,300 a year on bills to provide energy to the home, most of that energy is wasted by the home. Millions of $'s are wasted every year through appliances being unnecessarily left on and conditioned or heated air is just rushing out of buildings. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning units are not being maintained or modified to be the most efficient, windows leak conditioned air, and appliances devour energy.

A power provider, burning fossil fuels, provides all of the power provided to our houses. By wasting this power each and every one of us is burning more fossil fuel than required. Admittedly looking at the power the individual wastes does not mount to a great deal, but if you multiply that by all the homes in the USA (119,117,000), that is an awful lot of wasted energy. If each and every household changed only one thing think what might be saved!

There is an abundance of choices to make your energy savings with, but why not chose something that will provide you with a payback and potentially increase the value of the property. I would like to bring to your attention, Insulation. By insulating walls and roof space etc, saving up to 40% can be had off heating bills.

Spray Foam Insulation Kits are a cost effective way of insulating the home. This can be done by a professional or by using a DIY Insulation kit.

Benefits of Using Insulation Foam?

Not only will you be playing a part in reducing global warming as you will be using less power, but you will be saving up to 40% of your heating and cooling bills! The home will adopt the properties of a cool box or a thermos! It will keep the cool air in for longer (summer time) or the hot air in for longer (winter time)

Research from the U.S. Government's energy labs has estimated that cracks and openings in the walls and roof waste up to 40% of every home heating and cooling expenditure. This is a simple thing to stop, just by sealing cracks and openings in the home with Spray Foam Insulation Kits.

On average a household winter heating bill is around $142 a month. By doing something as simple as insulating your walls, savings could be could be seen of up to;

$57.00 a Month.
$680.00 a Year.
$3408.00 over five years

As you can see from above, the time it takes for this home improvement to pay for itself is pretty quick. This type of improvement is likely to improve the homes R-Value (R-value is a measure of a material's thermal resistance, or how well it holds back heat gain or loss. The higher the R-value the better.).

Spray Foam Insulation Kits are quick and easy jobs to do. A few hours can seal and insulate a home. It's easy to seal and insulate an attic, basement, or crawlspace. Over time sealing and insulating your home properly will see savings of thousands.
