Foam Insulation can help save homeowners up to 30 percent on energy bills
Heating and cooling costs are up 400 percent in the last decade, according to the Association for Better Insulation. You may think that insulating should be the first step in making your home more energy efficient, but air leaks through the ceiling, walls, foundation and other areas typically are the greatest sources of heat loss in a home.
The U.S. Department of Energy has found that the openings in ceilings, walls and floors; around window and door frames; plumbing penetrations; ducts; and electrical outlets account for 82 percent of the energy loss in the average home. The department has also found that sealing the gaps and cracks in these areas can save homeowners up to 30 percent on energy bills.
