Professional-grade spray foam insulation services will save you money on your monthly energy bills while simultaneously delivering a more comfortable living environment. High quality material installed correctly will moderate temperature fluctuations within the home thus making the home more comfortable.

Spray foam insulation securely seals your home strongly making it impenetrable to the outside elements. The polyurethane foam when sprayed into ceilings and walls and when it expands, it forms an airtight seal or in other cases it is done as moisture tight. This spray foam is commonly used to deal with small crevices and cracks along the perimeter of your home. However, the type of spray foam insulation to use will depend on the area you are insulating and it has to be sprayed properly. It is usable to be applied in many places in your home including walls, the roof, the attic and other foundations. In choosing the right type of spray foam, there is a closed cell category which is a denser and more expensive type of foam insulation or an open cell which is less dense. They are both effective however most contractors choose closed-cell foam insulation due to its higher R-value and moisture barrier properties.

The spray foam insulation when installed in your home is worth your money. It will last the lifetime of your home. The closed-cell foam insulation is very ideal though slightly expensive because of its durability. And if you opt for an extra insulating value and added moisture barrier it will result in a higher cost however endless benefits will give a fair share in your home’s value.

Before Replacing HVAC, Consider This

25 February 2022

Custom Insulation blown-in insulation in Worcester, MA

After this winter, many homeowners are considering replacing their heating or HVAC system. But there are some questions you should ask yourself before you make that big investment.

Have you recently upgraded the thermal envelope of your house? The thermal envelope of your house is everything that separates the living space from the outside, including walls, doors, windows, insulation and the roof. If you’ve been sealing leaks, eliminating drafts, replacing old windows or adding insulation, you’ve been making your home more energy efficient.

With thermal envelope upgrades, the home will lose less heat in the winter and therefore the heating appliance likely won’t need to provide as much energy. Depending on the reduction in energy use, it’s possible that your heating appliance could become oversized and a smaller system may operate more efficiently. Upgrading and updating your home insulation means that your home will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing energy costs year round.

Is your current heating appliance more than 20 years old? Appliances made today are far more efficient than older models. They use less fuel, they are also safer, and they are more efficient. Also, the methods to size a heating system are better and can be tailored to individual homes.

Do you have rooms that are always too hot or too cold? This can be the result of air leaks, inadequate insulation, an improperly sized heating appliance or lack of zoning in your heating system. If you need to add insulation or seal leaks, take care of that before upgrading your heating system so that the heating system will be sized properly for your home.
