Lower Energy Costs

1. Lower Energy Costs

Approximately 40% of a building’s energy is lost because of air infiltration. Gaps, holes and cracks in walls, attics, roofs and other parts of the house cause air to flow in and out. Because of this, warm or cold air inside is not contained causing HVAC systems to use up more energy to sustain the comfort level inside the home. The result is higher electricity bills especially during winter seasons when heating systems are in constant utilization. To prevent this, one needs to fill in the gaps, cracks and nooks that allow air to flow in and out. One of the most efficient air barriers available today is spray foam insulation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program stipulated that by adding insulation and sealing air leaks, households could save up to 20% on their monthly energy bills.

The U.S. Department of Energy says that 56% of the energy used in a house goes to heating and cooling. Your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system comprises a huge bulk of your utility bills and your energy consumption especially during winter seasons. While keeping your HVAC systems at their best condition make your home more energy efficient, choosing to add insulation is better. Spray foam insulation is the number one choice of homeowners today as it can help reduce the workload of HVAC systems because of its excellent sealing capacity. The result? Lower monthly energy cost.

When a house is installed with spray foam insulation, gaps, holes and cracks that cause air to flow are sealed so air is contained inside the house. HVAC systems need not work in full swing because one can choose to turn it off or set it low knowing that the comfort level inside the house is maintained.

Air leaks can waste energy and drive utility bills up. Spray foam can be used to fill openings and prevent airflow in many areas of a house or building. Some of the common places that can be installed with spray foam insulation include:

  • Walls
  • Attics
  • Basement
  • Wiring holes
  • Plumbing vents
  • Window and door rim joints

With energy costs constantly rising, homeowners are constantly on the lookout for ways to reduce their energy consumption. Spray foam insulation is an efficient energy conservation solution that can significantly lower homeowners’ monthly energy bills.

Testimonials

  • Sealtite put foam insulation in a tool shed we built and the house within the tool shed. Plus they put blown insulation in the ceiling of the shed portion. We are very pleased with the service the provided. They were prompt, neat and tidy…cleaned up everything, were very cordial and efficient. Once they were gone, we would not have known they were there! We have already suggested their service to others!

They went above and beyond! Now they have completed three projects for us, and we have already referred them to others!

  • Sealtite did two projects for us – insulating our sun room and our farm shop. We were very pleased with their quality of service. They were prompt on returning our calls and emails and were very good at educating us on the various products and options we had…giving us choices. Very thorough and patient. Thank you!

  • We are very pleased with the job Sealtite did for us. They insulated our upstairs with open-cell insulation and downstairs with closed-cell insulation and also put cellulose in the attic. Neat and efficient, they kept a consistent thickness in filling between the studs. We heard from experienced people after seeing the job completed that it was a superior finished product when compared to others.
