A recent home improvement article stresses that for the nearly 66 percent of Americans who live in homes built prior to 1980, lower heating and cooling costs may seem like a hard-to-attain fantasy.
However, at Intech Equipment and Supply, we believe with the right insulation choice and easily accessible Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation equipment provider, your clients – who tend to be the owners of these older homes – can capitalize on potential opportunities to reduce their energy bills.
As you may already know, spray foam insulation is an especially versatile choice when it comes to updating and modernizing older homes. It can be easily installed when renovating existing walls and attics, including hard-to-reach and odd-shaped areas.
A spray-applied insulation installed seamlessly in and around building surfaces, spray foam seals cracks, seams and joints, helping to reduce energy loss from drafts and leaks. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, (DOE) a properly insulated and sealed home can reduce heating and cooling needs by approximately 30 percent.
Don’t Forget the Attic
Many homeowners do not realize that attics are places where heat and cold air can escape. The DOE also reports that attic openings account for nearly 15 percent of a typical home’s energy losses. However, with the use of spray foam to insulate an attic, homeowners will notice improvement in their home’s energy efficiency.
