Existing Home Insulation
In the majority of homes the existing home insulation is inadequate to meet the homes insulation needs. The problem is that many homeowners feel that the more insulation they have, the better. However, this simply may not be true. Traditional home insulating materials may block the larger areas of a home, but may be sufficiently able to form itself to properly block small cracks and crevices which account for the majority of loss energy when heating or cooling a home.

The High Cost of Air Leaks
Studies suggest that between 50% and 70% of a homes energy usage is consumed by the heating and cooling of the home. What this means is that even a few small cracks and crevices can greatly increase the amount the energy needed to keep your home at comfortable temperature, with the majority of loss energy due to improperly insulated attics, basements and crawlspaces accounting for a majority of the energy loss.
How Spray Foam Insulation Prevents Energy Loss
Spray foam insulation is the best kind of insulation to prevent energy loss in your home. Spray foam is easy to apply to both open and tight places and once it is applied it expands to cover the entire area and block and air leaks from cracks and crevices hardening into a protective barrier that keeps inside air in and outside air out. By sealing your attic, basement and crawlspaces ceilings and walls with spray foam insulation you can decrease the amount of energy you use significantly.
In addition, insulating crawlspaces and basements with spray foam insulation (close cell spray foam) you can also reduce the chances of dampness entering these spaces and causing damage to your inside walls and floors.
