Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency with Additional Insulation

April 29, 2022

There are plenty of good reasons to add more insulation to your Auburn home, but one of the best reasons to make this upgrade is it improves your home’s energy efficiency. Keep reading to learn more about spray foam insulation and how it helps you waste less energy and your hard-earned money.

What Is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam insulation is applied inside of walls and ceiling and around light fixtures and electrical outlets. It’s a cost-effective alternative to fiberglass insulation that does a better job insulating the job for longer periods. Unlike fiberglass insulation, spray foam doesn’t break down or lose its shape. It deters moisture, adds value to the home, and keeps your home comfortable year-round.

Why Homeowners Choose Spray Foam for Improved Energy Efficiency?

Are you tired of paying high utility bills to heat and cool your home and struggle to maintain indoor temperatures? Often, people assume the problem is their HVAC equipment when the culprit is insufficient insulation. The purpose of insulation is to prevent air leaks and drafts. All it takes is a small crack between the studs in your attic, basement or crawlspace for air to leak from the home. According to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, people waste approximately $200-$400 heating and cooling their homes. While inefficient heating and cooling equipment cause some of this waste, air leaks and drafts contribute to the waste also.

Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation, spray insulation does a better job sealing those cracks. The foam fills in the gaps as it expands. Fiberglass insulation can’t expand and, therefore, it can’t seal cracks and holes nearly as well.

If you recently built your home, your contractor likely used open or closed-cell spray insulation products. But what if your home is older? Home energy retrofits like upgrading your insulation are great ways to increase the home’s energy efficiency, lower your energy costs, and add incredible value to the property.

There’s never been a better time to upgrade to spray foam insulation. To learn more about the benefits of upgraded insulation products, call Sensigreen Heating & Air today!
