There’s no argruing that older homes can have many great features — including their original charm, and quality of construction.
Furthermore, many older homes tend to be more distinctive than other, more contemporary houses as the older property is likely unique (as opposed to today’s common cookie cutter designs).
But owning an older home can come with its own unique set of challenges. And leading these issues is the cost to maintain and repair an older home.
As many homeowners discover the hard way, older homes can have numerous drafts and insufficient insulation. Unfortunately, this can result in high utility bills and make for an uncomfortable living environment.
From a daily operation standpoint, this also means more expense — and even worse, a wasted expense as the utility costs are so high because the house is letting air escape from every nook and cranny.
Fortunately, There Is a Solution
Upgrading the insulation of an older home by installing Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation can make a major difference in both the cost of running the home and the comfort of living in it.
SPF can be used as a general insulation, yet it is also a great option for filling the gaps that can cause drafts and leaks.
In many situations, homeowners are amazed at how great the difference is once an older home is upgraded with spray foam. The improvement is immediately noticeable —especially when the lower utility bills surface.
SPF contractors interested in helping their customers upgrade the insulation in their older homes can find everything they need, including spray foam insulation machines, at Intech Equipment & Supply.
