Deciding on the Best Place to Insulate Your Home

If you needed to decide on the best place to insulate your home, where would you choose? Sometimes budget can be an issue, and it’s better to improve some parts of your home rather than allowing your home to suffer from poor performance and energy loss for any longer.

The best place to insulate in your home could depend on your home’s requirements and seasonal performance. For instance, in a colder climate, one where it snows in the winter, insulating the attic would likely be the most effective. Attics are often a source of major air loss, and the warm air escaping your home in the winter can lead to the formation of ice dams.

Ice dams can be extremely damaging to a home, if they are not addressed. They can lead to water damage inside your home, compromised insulation that may already exist, and damage to the shingles on your home’s roof.

An attic that has been air sealed thanks to spray foam insulation like Icynene can result in many benefits for your home including maintaining an even temperature throughout the home, minimizing heat loss through the attic and reducing the risk of ice dams forming, plus many more benefits.

Talk to a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, to find out more reasons why Icynene is the best choice for your home, or your project.
