Although the initial cost of Spray Foam Insulation is more than traditional fiberglass batting or cellulose, the energy efficiency allows homeowners to recoup their initial costs in from eighteen months to three years and then the savings continue year after year. This is one of the reasons why Spray Foam Insulation is rapidly becoming the standard in quality built homes. Quality and energy efficiency is always a good financial decision.
Structural engineers say that a home should be as tight and seamless as possible. Yet, the US Department of Energy estimates that up to 70% of your heating and cooling costs can be attributed to a leaky house. Spray foam insulation expands on contact forming and airtight seal and can reduce the HVAC load by as much as 50%. This will save homeowners both installation costs and monthly energy costs.
