Habitat For Humanity's
Study on Spray Foam
I'm sure you've heard of
Habitat For Humanity. That's the non-profit group that
builds affordable housing for people. Well, Habitat for
Humanity decided to conduct a little experiment on two
identical houses that they built.
In one house, Habitat for
Humanity used fiberglass insulation. In the other house,
they used spray foam insulation. They monitored the
electricity use of each home, and guess what they discovered
after five months? The house with fiberglass insulation
owed $547 more in electricity bills than the home with spray
foam. Click Here

So how does Spray Foam
Insulation actually save you money?
When foam insulation is
sprayed into your home, it creates an airtight seal.
Because of that seal, and the material it is made from, it
keeps the heat out of your home much better than fiberglass
insulation ever could.
Here are some of its
benefits, including how it saves you money:
It can reduce your home
electricity costs up to 50%
It can prevent mold growth
(no expensive removal needed)
It can make the walls of your
home much stronger
A home insulated with spray
foam usually has a higher resale value.
So not only are you saving
plenty of cash on your electric bills, you actually increase
the resale value of your home. Since spray foam
insulation usually lasts the entire lifetime of your house,
you don't have to worry about replacing it every 10 years.
Spray Foam Insulation is
Obviously Worth the Money
So now you know some of the
money-saving benefits of having your home treated with spray
foam. As most people know, it simply makes sense to do
what will save you serious cash in the long run.
