Spray foam makes economic sense — it will provide you with significant annual energy savings on utility costs including electric bills when compared to other types of insulation. With an average payback of three to four years, you’ll be saving money and enjoying your home in comfort. You can lower your heating and cooling costs and make real energy savings by upgrading your home.
As much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes and air leaks—which can all be prevented—can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste. Achieve real energy savings by installing spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation offers a solution: it performs as both insulation and an air sealant, or air barrier, closing those nooks and crannies that let air escape and add dollars to monthly energy bills.
Real Energy Savings – For an 1800 Sq. Ft home, you could save as much as:
$40.67 / Month
$488 / Year
on heating/cooling costs!
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 56% of the energy used in a home goes to heating and cooling. Your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system has a big effect on your utility bills and your energy consumption. Maintaining an optimal HVAC system can make your home more energy efficient. Spray foam insulation can help reduce the workload on your HVAC system thanks to its high R-value and effectiveness.

Comparing Popular Insulation Solutions
|Standards||Spray Foam Insulation||Fiberglass||Cellulose|
|How it works||Polyurethane foam is sprayed within the structure creating a barrier and seal that perfectly conforms to the architectural layout.||Tiny glass fibers trap air, which slows the transfer of heat.||Fibers made of shredded newspaper and chemical Borate slow transfer of heat.|
|Seals heat within the building?||Yes||No||No|
|Installation||Sprayed by a professional applicator to conform to the structural layout.||Folded, cut and placed within the walls and ceilings.||Blown into the walls and held in place with glue and water.|
|R-Value||6 to 6.6 per inch||2.2 per inch (1.1 if damp)||3.5 to 3.8 per inch|
|Performance in Extremes||Contains conditioned air reliably year-round.||Loses 40% of capacity if temperatures fall below 20 degrees F.||Weather will cause leakage through the insulation.|
|Energy Efficiency||Most efficient||Less efficient||Less efficient|
|Health Problems||Chemicals undetectable after one hour. No long term hazards.||Fiberglass can spread particles throughout the home. These can cause serious respiratory illness if inhaled.||May allow mold and mildew in wet climates, In dry weather can create dust which is hazardous if inhaled.|
