With winter creeping up on the entire country, the worry that this year will be far worse than recent winters is something everyone is experiencing. After all, this hurricane season was one of the worst on record, wasn’t it? The answer to all of that worrying is to ensure that you effectively winterize your home before the snow and cold temperatures hit.
One of the best things you can do to ensure your home is ready for winter, in more ways than one, is to replace your current insulation, made from traditional materials like cellulose or fiberglass, with high performance spray foam insulation like Icynene. Unlike traditional insulation material types, Icynene is able to create an effective air barrier in your building envelope, thanks to its ability to expand upon application, filling any small cracks and crevices that might be present.
Not only can Icynene reduce the potential for drafts to occur in your home, it can help lower your monthly heating and cooling bills. The result is a more energy efficient home that’s also protected from ice melting and creating water damage in the home, as well as a reduced chance of ice dams occurring.
Talk to a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, to find out more reasons why Icynene is the ideal choice to help you and your family stay warm in your home this winter.
