4 Questions to Ask Your Contractor or Retailer

When consulting with your contractor or retailer about the insulation options available for your home, there are a number of questions you can ask them, to make sure that the insulation you choose is right for you. After all, you want an energy efficient insulation that can help to make your family more comfortable. Here are some questions you can ask to help make sure you’re making the right home insulation choice.

How well does the insulation control air leakage? Air leakage due to poor insulation can account for up to 40% of energy loss in the home. Spray foam insulation like Icynene can air seal your home, eliminating gaps that cause air leakage, and help you save money on your monthly heating and cooling bills.
How quickly will the insulation pay for itself? Some insulation companies make it seem like more is better, but that isn’t always the case. Is the purchase price of your insulation going to be offset by the savings in your monthly heating and cooling bills?
Will hard-to-insulate areas of my home be properly covered by the insulation? Certain places in the home are notoriously difficult to install traditional insulation. Areas like rim joists, garages, cathedral ceilings and crawlspaces may not be properly insulated, unless spray foam insulation, such as Icynene, is used.
Can the size of my heating and cooling equipment be reduced, with the help of this insulation? Not all insulation is created equal. When you install spray foam insulation like Icynene, you can create an air seal on your home, which can help reduce the load on your heating and cooling equipment. This can lead to the possibility of replacing your current HVAC unit with a smaller, more efficient one.


These are just a few of the questions that you can ask your contractor, to make sure that your insulation choice is the right one for you. Contact your local Icynene spray foam insulation contractor to find out more about why spray foam insulation is a wise investment choice.
