Insulation works by providing a continuous boundary of the "building envelope," between conditioned indoor spaces and unconditioned outdoor spaces. Low levels of insulation, plus gaps and voids in the insulation materials, can provide pathways for heat and air to easily flow into or out of a home. Approximately 40 percent of feeling physically comfortable is due to radiant heat exchange between our bodies and the surrounding interior surfaces. Increasing your residential insulation reduces this radiant heat exchange, maintaining a more consistent level of comfort throughout a house. Injection USA Premium Foam® Insulation, when applied to the interior of walls and crawl spaces, dramatically cuts down on air leaks and temperature transfer from the outside environment to the inside of the home.
Insulation works by providing a continuous boundary of the “building envelope” between your conditioned indoor spaces and the wildly fluctuating temperatures of outdoor spaces. Lack of adequate insulation provides undesirable pathways for hot and cold air to easily flow into or out of a home. Increasing insulation reduces this heat exchange, maintaining a more consistent level of comfort throughout a house all year long!
It has been shown that installing USA Premium Foam® Insulation results in substantial savings on your energy bills! The initial cost of installing USA Premium Foam® or any of our other high quality insulation products gives you a faster return on investment than inferior products. Plus, our insulation provides additional savings by reducing the required size of HVAC (heating and air conditioning) and other time consuming and costly procedures and materials.
he U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Building Technology recommends insulation to help consumers reduce energy bills. Older homes in particular can be poorly insulated (many have no insulation at all), leading to high heating and air-conditioning bills.
USA Insulation installs Qualified Energy Star products that provide superior energy efficiency while helping to reduce energy consumption and conserve our nation's precious natural resources. Energy Star is a government backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.
A study by the Harvard School of Public Health concludes that properly insulating homes worldwide would reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by 293.5 Billion pounds over 10 years!* Reducing Energy Consumption reduces carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, NAIMA (North American Insulation Manufacturers Association) estimates that insulated buildings in the United States reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 780 tons annually.**
Increased Resale Value
Installing proper insulation levels can also make your home more attractive to potential buyers. 86% of Americans would choose one home over another based on its energy efficiency. (Energy Pulse Survey, 2006)

According to two studies done by Harvard University's School of Public Health, if all single families in the U.S. lived in adequately insulated homes, each year there would be:
- 6,500 fewer asthma attacks
- 240 fewer premature deaths
- 110,000 less restricted-activity days per year
