Icynene spray foam insulation can help with air leakage

Most of the country has now moved from the moderate temperatures of fall to polar vortex season, and it seems like everyone is crossing their fingers as they open their monthly heating and cooling bills that they don’t get a big shock. If you tend to have a drafty home in the winter that can mean your home is suffering from air leakage. This can not only make you and your family uncomfortable during the colder months, it could also mean higher than normal monthly energy bills.

As a homeowner, that can be incredibly frustrating to realize, but it’s actually a relatively easy issue to solve. Replacing your current, traditional insulation with a high performance solution like spray foam insulation, such as Icynene, can help reduce drafts in your home. Not only can this result in a more comfortable home to live in, it can also help to lower your monthly heating and cooling bills.

The great news is spray foam insulation contributes to energy efficiency. Icynene spray foam insulation expands to 100 times its original size just seconds after application, filling in tiny cracks and crevices, and resulting in an effective air barrier wherever it’s been applied. This air barrier can help your home better regulate its internal temperature, because less conditioned air is able to escape. In turn, this can equate to lower monthly heating and cooling bills, because your HVAC unit doesn’t need to work as hard to maintain the temperature it is set at.

Talk to a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, to find out more about air leakage in your home, and more reasons to choose Icynene.
