Limiting Air Loss from Your Home

If you’ve noticed that your home’s heating and cooling bills seem to be higher than many of the people you know, it’s possible your home has a problem with air loss. One way to test this theory is by having a blower door test done, and if your suspicions are confirmed, one of the first things you’ll want to think about doing is replacing your existing insulation with something more effective, such as spray foam insulation.

Spray foam like Icynene expands upon application, filling any nooks and crannies that may exist, and creating an effective air seal wherever it’s applied. This air barrier helps limit air leakage that your home previously would have experienced, helping to reduce the workload of your HVAC system and, in turn, your monthly heating and cooling bills. It’s possible you may even be able to “right size” your HVAC unit, with the reduced work it has to do to maintain a comfortable home.

Around a third of air loss occurs through walls, ceilings and floors. Therefore, insulating an attic is one of the best places to start if you have a limited budget. The best return on your investment is to upgrade your existing insulation with Icynene spray foam insulation.. Using Icynene foam insulation to seal your attic will also help reduce the risk of ice dams forming in the winter as well.
