Spray foam offers unique advantages when upgrading insulation [VIDEO]
Many homeowners choose to upgrade the insulation in their home solely to improve the home's R-value. Selecting spray foam as your preferred insulation goes beyond just R-value* to help keep your heating and cooling bills affordable. Spray foam insulation provides both consistent R-value* plus air sealing because it is also an air barrier. Homeowners can cut their monthly heating or cooling bills by as much as half. There are other advantages to spray foam insulation materials too.

* 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.
