How to Avoid 3 Costly Insulation Mistakes

Every one of us hates making mistakes. They’re embarrassing, expensive, and hard to fix.  So let’s make it easy to avoid them.

costly insulation mistakes 01Don’t Just Focus on R-Value

We see R-value comparisons time and time again. It’s hypnotic. It can easily sway you to going back to comparing apples to oranges.

But, there’s more to insulation performance than just R-value. Keep that in mind, and ask how the insulation performs against air leaks, moisture, mold, and pests.

Air leaks alone count for up to 40% of energy wasted in heating and cooling. So, stopping air leaks is vital and it has nothing to do with R-value.

Plus you want more than just r-value.  You want comfort.  You want better air quality.  You want to make sure you don’t have to redo it again in a few years.  You want to keep pests out of your home.  So don’t be a sucker for just R-values.

Foam it Green has twice the R-value of fiberglass per inch – R-7 in just 1 inch of cured foam.  Better still, Foam it Green seals out air in just 1 inch which saves up to 40% of energy bills by sealing in the air you heated or cooled and sealing out the outside.

When everything else seems even, it makes sense to try to save some money.  After all, do you choose the car you’re going to buy and then find the very highest price for it?  No.

But there are big differences between different types of spray foam insulation.  Even if it’s closed cell, and the r-value is similar and it’s going to seal out air there are some big things to consider.
