Believe it or not, some areas of the country have already been hit with their first snowfall of the season! While these early storms are generally short-lived and the snow tends to melt quickly once temperatures rise again, it’s a good reminder that winter isn’t too far away. The cold weather—and the heating bills that go with it—will be here before we know it, so property owners don’t have much longer to prepare.
Those who still feel the pain of last year’s heating bills or the discomfort of struggling through chills and frigid spaces would be smart to take steps now to prevent a repeat again this year. However, they may be procrastinating because they fear the hassle and expense of upgrading or improving their properties.
These cautious property owners may be relieved to know that weather-proofing their home to prevent drafts and air leaks likely is much easier than they may think. Adding a layer of spray foam insulation can be a quick and effective way to strengthen a building’s outer envelope, preventing air from escaping and greatly reducing energy usage.
Contractors can assist these customers in making their buildings and homes more energy efficient, but they need to be able to complete these jobs quickly. They can get the spray foam equipment they need quickly and easily by ordering their materials via the online store at Intech Equipment & Supply.
