For St. Patty's Day, a "Green" Energy-Saving Home Improvement
St. Patrick‘s Day is the perfect time to talk about our Premium Foam Insulation…because it‘s green! Not like a shamrock, or beer, or the Chicago River is green. But green as in "environmentally friendly".
Here are just a few reasons why Premium Foam is good for the environment, good for you, and good for your home!
First, it is made from environmentally friendly materials. Tests conducted by the EPA for hazardous materials detected no toxic substances. In addition, there are no fibers or "clumps" of loose matter in the insulation that are released during or after insulation.
Premium Foam insulation also reduces energy use in the home.In fact, it has been shown to be the most effective retrofit (installed in existing homes) insulation on the market. It has an R-value that is up to 35% higher than other types of insulation for greater energy efficiency. R-value measures the thermal effectiveness of insulation. This means you will use your furnace and air conditioning less often—which means less energy consumption and less waste of our precious natural resources.
Another reason for our foam insulation‘s efficiency is the fact that it fills your wall cavities totally and completely, allowing no wiggle room for outside air to seep in or expensive inside conditioned air to escape. Because Premium Foam starts as a liquid, it fills every gap, crack and crevice in your wall cavities, and gets in, around, and behind obstacles such as pipes, wires, and wall sockets. Now THAT‘s a solid thermal barrier!
Being an inert substance is another reason USA Premium Foam contributes to a healthier home environment. It offers no food value to unwanted pests and other living things. It doesn‘t support bacteria, mold, or fungal growth. And it isn‘t susceptible to decomposition, powdering or dripping over time.
Over the past few years, insulation technology has come a long way! USA Premium Foam Insulation is proof that home improvement and energy conservation can go hand in hand.
Did we mention that your home stays warmer in winter and cooler in summer? And one other thing. While the neighbors are partying loud and long all St. Patrick‘s Day and night, you can go about your business without hearing a thing—because Premium Foam keeps your home a whole lot quieter, too!
