Adding better insulation to a home helps save a significant amount of money in the long term. These insulation upgrades help keep heat in and hold the cold outside or the other way around when the weather calls for it. Spray foam products let you create a seal all throughout your home that ensures lower power bills and improved HVAC capabilities by making certain that the differences in indoor climate you make with your thermostat are exactly what your house gets to experience. With other kinds of insulation, such a circumstance is often not the case, as leaks, gaps and overall inefficiency of traditional insulation is not as effective at managing heating or cooling.

With that in mind, it's important to determine which parts of your home most need Icynene spray foam and what kinds of return on investment you can expect. In many cases, you may think that it's impossible to improve on what you currently have installed throughout your house, but Icynene products help regulate temperature much more effectively than any other insulation product. What's more, it helps your house reduce moisture damage and make the most of your heaters, air conditioners and other resources that regulate your home's temperature.

There are also plenty of financial benefits to adding Icynene spray foam insulation to your house. Not only does this improvement help reduce heating and cooling bills by as much as 50 percent^, but there are a variety of green bonuses and homeowner rebate programs available at the state and national level that help you recover the cost of installing spray foam. By adding Icynene, you could enjoy hundreds or even thousands of dollars back on top of the long-term financial benefits you may enjoy by reducing oil, gas and electric demand.

Ten percent back
Federal rebates are available to all US homeowners that add Icynene spray foam to their houses. Every area where you apply this product qualifies you for an additional cash-back rebate, with the value of these incentives capped at $500 per individual improvement. The areas of your home that qualify for these financial easements include rim joists, general wall insulating, garages, foundations, attics and air ducts. Some applications therefore are eligible for multiple rebates at a time, helping you maximize your return on investment.

Regional benefits
Some parts of the country are open to granting more assistance to state residents for upgrades they make to their homes. These offers are backed by gas and electric company NSTAR and apply to your home depending on the type of power you use to heat and cool the structure. These awards max out at $2,000 per house, so long as these buildings meet the standards set down by NTAR's Home Efficiency Program. Participating in that program requires a free home energy assessment as offered by NSTAR, so contact your regional office to find out if you qualify for the rebate and schedule an inspection.

Tax breaks
One of the best benefits awarded by adding Icynene spray foam insulation is the long-term kickback afforded homeowners through tax credits and rebates. The federal tax credit for boosting the environmentally friendliness of your house tops out at $2,000 and offers ongoing use to people who maintain their houses in a eco-efficient way. On top of that, the Department of Energy has a listing of regional offices and federal programs that help you secure special loans and get kickbacks for investing in green initiatives for your house. Investigate these funding and financial assistance options to ensure that you are getting the best coverage for your home with Icynene and the greatest amount of insulation to your wallet with government assistance.
