Achieving energy efficiency in your homes

When you choose to invest in spray foam insulation, you can say goodbye to high heating and cooling costs in your home. Icynene spray foam insulation can help improve the energy efficiency of your home by insulating and air sealing it effectively. Icynene’s air sealing properties  can work to help reduce air loss in your home, thereby helping to lower your monthly heating and cooling costs.

Gaps and cracks in your current insulation coverage can add up to the size of a basketball, allowing conditioned air to escape your home. This contributes to rising heating and cooling costs, because your HVAC equipment is then forced to work harder to maintain the temperature in your home.

For example, the average home in British Columbia devotes approximately 50 percent of its monthly energy bill to space heating. In Ontario, that amount rises to 62 percent, which can equate to as much as $1,240 annually.
