Why insulate your attic?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, air loss in homeowners’ attics is one of the leading causes of excessive energy bills. Because heat rises, the air you’ve paid to heat your home sneaks through gaps created by things like dropped soffits and electrical boxes into your unsealed or poorly insulated attic, where it can easily escape your house. Your HVAC system is forced to work in overdrive to combat this loss of warm air, which raises your heating costs -- a process that repeats itself over and over again. To achieve optimal energy efficiency, ensure your home is properly insulated from top to bottom with high-performance insulation.
Without proper insulation in the walls, floor, and ceilings of your home, heat loss will continue to occur and cost more money each month. You can save on your annual heating and cooling bills by sealing air leaks and adding more effective insulation around your home. The best insulation, our spray foam, combined with air sealing will provide solid resistance to this phenomenon.
Why insulate your attic with spray foam?
Foamco’s spray foam insulation expands up to 100 times its original volume upon application. This creates complete coverage over hard-to-reach gaps and crevices, making it perfect for air sealing your home. Our spray foam insulation has an R-value from 4.2 per inch – 7 per inch, meaning the overall resistance to air loss is extremely high. Our insulation maintains these high R-values for the long term, providing consistent energy savings year after year.
Traditional insulation, like fiberglass, can often leave gaps or seams around oddly shaped areas, like electrical boxes or light fixtures. Those gaps can become larger over time as the insulation begins to sag or retain moisture. This can lead to the additional headache of increased energy bills in the future.
