How Spray Foam Insulation Provides a More Energy Efficient Home

Buildings with spray foam insulation routinely perform 30-50% better than traditional insulation materials.

Creating an air barrier with spray foam is the smart solution for those concerned about energy efficiency or those tired of their cooling systems not keeping pace with the summer heat. The insulation virtually eliminates the largest source of energy loss in the average home – the 30 to 40% typically lost through air leakage. With traditional insulation materials, HVAC professionals typically need to install larger units which cost more to install and operate.

Bottom line is that heating and cooling a foam insulation home typically costs 30-50% less than your average home. Not only that, you feel more comfortable during the long Chicagoland summer.
