100 million U.S. homes use air conditioners [VIDEO]
While they were once thought of as a luxury, air conditioners have now become a standard in millions of U.S. homes. In fact, the U.S. Energy Administration states that in 1993, only 68 percent of households in the U.S. had an AC unit. As of 2011, that number had jumped to 87 percent.
If you're one of the many homeowners who has a window AC unit or central AC, you know that it can be costly to run, particularly in the height of summer. But did you know that it can be even pricer if you have cracks in your house that allow the cold air to escape and the hot air in.
Thankfully, a licensed Icynene insulation contractor can install Icynene spray foam insulation throughout your home and ensure that the cool air you pay for stays right where it belongs - in your home! By doing so, you’ll be able to save as much as 50%^ on your cooling costs this summer.
