Because it is efficient, it will reduce your heating and cooling bills. Energy cost savings allow you to recoup your investment quickly making spray foam insulation a wise choice financially.
The Barrington area boasts a wide range of home types, sizes and ages. Many homes in the downtown area were built almost one hundred years ago and weren’t built with energy efficiency in mind. Even newer homes built in the last fifty years show signs that the insulation that was once there is no longer performing or was always inadequate based on today’s energy costs. Batt insulation in walls sags over time due leaving gaps between your inside walls and the outside bricks or sheathing on your home. Perhaps you’ve noticed drafts coming in through your wall outlets or light sockets. This is a sign that your wall insulation is no longer working.
Blown-in attic insulation may have been lofty when it was installed. Over time, blown-in insulation loses its insulating value as it settles and compresses. Homes that were built before the 1960s may have vermiculite-type insulation in the attic which should be removed before any new insulation is applied.
Both of these problems – sagging batt insulation and compressing blow-in insulation – can be solved with spray foam insulation. Spray foam provides a sealed barrier against drafts and offers a high R-value per inch keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
