Property owners who are conscientious about energy consumption are probably interested in monitoring their Home Energy Score.
The Home Energy Score is related to a system devised by the U.S. Department of Energy. It is a national rating system that indicates how energy efficient the property is. Several factors are considered in determining a Home Energy Score. This includes information about the home’s structure and construction, along with details about its heating and cooling systems.
As part of the assessment to determine this rating, energy usage is taken into consideration. The more energy efficient a home is, the more positive its Home Energy Score will be. Along with the score, the report includes recommendations for improving the home’s energy usage. A major step towards cutting energy usage is preventing air loss, which increases the cost of heating and cooling the home. To that end, installing adequate insulation or upgrading the existing insulation is a smart move, one that can have considerable financial benefits.
Spray foam is one of the most popular choices among insulation materials because it offers impressive protective qualities and can form a strong, airtight barrier that prevents energy loss. Graco spray foam rigs can play a critical role in helping contractors complete spray foam insulation jobs quickly and efficiently.
