Consider spray foam insulation for its year-round performance [VIDEO]
The best home improvement investments help enhance your home's performance all year long. For example, spray foam insulation from Icynene can help make your home more comfortable in winter and summer equally while keeping your monthly bills down.
The key to spray foam insulation's performance is in the installation process. The insulation material expands within seconds upon application, filling the cracks and gaps that make it hard to maintain a stable indoor temperature. Spray foam also has a high, consistent R-value*, reflecting the insulation's ability to slow heat loss.

* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
