Beat The Heat, and Save Money Doing It
It’s easy to forget your outdated insulation as winter turns to spring, and windows can be opened to let the breeze indoors. In the south, that fleeting comfort is short lived, and summer brings humidity and 85+ degree temperatures almost every week. Upgrading your insulation can greatly improve indoor comfort immediately, while lowering your energy bills by reducing the runtime of your HVAC system.
90% of US homes are under insulated, so whether you choose spray foam insulation or a fiberglass upgrade, you’ll be doing your home a favor. Both solutions reduce strain on your HVAC by keeping your home at a consistent temperature. Less strain on your HVAC and less energy loss means more money saved!
ENJOY CONSISTENT INDOOR TEMPERATURES
Efficient insulation makes it easier to regulate indoor temperatures between rooms by creating a seal to keep your warm air in and cold outside air out. Consistent temperatures inside allow your HVAC to work less to regulate. This increases your comfort and decreases your energy costs!
KEEP YOUR HOME HEALTHY
Old insulation traps debris, moisture, and pollen. This not only encourages mold growth, but it ensures that the air cycling through your home is full of impurities. Spray foam insulation creates an air seal to keep your healthy, conditioned air in, and outdoor air out. A benefit to everyone—not just those that suffer from allergies.
KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE
Areas of the home that are under insulated tend to have more air movement which can induce moisture within walls, and are more prone to condensation which can cause them to swell. Elevated moisture in homes leads to building issues such as: expansion of crown molding, hardwood floors, window sills, and other decorative materials. In Extreme cases, elevated moisture levels can lead to structural problems over time. Sections of the home that are properly spray foamed become a part of the building’s thermal envelope and typically have better air sealing characteristics, thus are more likely to be protected from moisture and infiltration.
