As 2015 approaches and temperatures continue to drop, you’re probably thinking of ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home. You may need to install more insulation, which can help you save on your bills throughout the year.

Which insulation material should you use for your project? There are several different types. The type you’ll use depends on a few factors, mainly the area of your home you need to insulate. Spray foam insulation is widely used and offers a variety of benefits for homeowners. These include:

Energy Savings

By installing spray foam insulation in your home, you can save a lot of money every year on your utility bills. Insulation pays for itself in the long run and is a great way to maximize the energy efficiency and comfort of your home, no matter the season.

Home Comfort Levels

Is it drafty and uncomfortable inside your home, with uneven temperatures from room to room? Installing insulation can help make your home more comfortable and keep it warmer or cooler (depending on the season).

Soundproofing

In general, insulation installation can help with soundproofing (both from outside and inside, between different rooms and levels). Combine spray foam with loose-fill cellulose or fiberglass, which we have found are some of the most effective materials at helping reduce noises.

Air Sealing

Because spray foam can fit snugly around wiring, piping, etc. and in the smallest of gaps and crevices behind your walls, its air sealing ability is superior to that of other materials. This can also help improve your energy efficiency efforts.
