t’s easy to assume, when buying a newly built home, that your home’s energy efficiency will not only be high, but it will be superior to an older home’s. That isn’t necessarily the case, however. You may be Googling “How to lower heating bills” by the time you’re a month into your first winter in your new home.
A great first step toward optimizing your new home’s energy efficiency is by making sure it is insulated with spray foam insulation like Icynene. What makes Icynene spray foam the perfect choice for newly built homes is its ability to expand to approximately 100 times its original size, helping to fill hard-to-reach corners and other parts of your home where traditional insulation might not fit or provide adequate coverage.
Icynene spray foam insulation is able to create an effective air barrier wherever it is applied, which can help to reduce any potential air loss your home may suffer from, and reducing air leakage in a home can have a direct effect on its energy efficiency.
