Spray Foam Insulation Reduces Energy Bills – Worcester, Boston

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 03, 2014

Whether it's the chill of winter or the heat of summer, our natural instincts are to adjust the indoor temperature to make our homes more comfortable all year long. But if your home has any drafts or is insulated poorly, expect indoor temperatures to fluctuate dramatically.

Leaks and drafts can hinder the performance of your HVAC equipment and cause your utility bills to skyrocket. Why? Conditioned air continually escapes the home due to the gaps within the building envelope, and HVAC equipment will work overtime to reach the thermostat's set temperature. Air leakage contributes to potential moisture problems that can affect health and the home's durability.

Once all sources of air leaks have been identified, air sealing techniques and materials can be applied. Caulking and weather-stripping are two of the most popular and common techniques that can help address air leaks. A recent study showed that heat transfer was much lower in a home that has spray foam insulation than with other, more traditional insulation. The reduction, about 15% indicates minimal thermal transmission and better block of heat transference, which can have a significant impact on how homeowners heat and cool their home.

Installed by professionals, spray foam insulation works well in all climates to completely seal your home, filling every gap to stop air leaks and help reduce the strain on HVAC equipment. Spray foam insulation both insulates and air seals the entire building envelope letting homeowners cut their monthly heating and cooling bills by as much as 50% in some cases.

As a long-term solution, spray foam insulation helps maintain a comfortable temperature year-round while helping to control monthly heating and cooling expenses. Thanks to spray foam insulation's air-sealing qualities, homeowners can reduce the size of their heating and cooling equipment since less effort is required to heat or cool the home.

While air leakage can cause energy bills to sky-rocket, a well-insulated home and economical winterizing can help you get through the cold winter months. For more information, contact Custom Insulation.
