Selecting the right insulation is a task that is often overlooked. However, your choice of insulation has a major impact not only on your pocketbook, but also on the long-term quality of the air you breathe and your overall health and comfort.
Whether you’re thinking of remodeling or building a new home, open cell spray foam insulation will protect you from the harmful effects of air leakage, helping you increase energy efficiency, improve the comfort of the home, improve indoor air quality and minimize the incidence of moisture-related problems (like mold and mildew).
Its air-sealing properties also create a draft-free environment that offers a strong payback with energy savings of up to 50% while dramatically improving the comfort of the home. Open cell spray foam insulation will eliminate the extreme temperatures on the home – the temperature in the attic will no longer be between 120 to 150 degrees but will be in the 80s.
Summit Green Solutions can even improve the energy efficiency of existing homes by installing open cell spray foam insulation in your attic. With 45% to 55% of a typical home’s energy loss escaping through the attic and most HVAC ductwork located in the attic, it is the most cost effective area to insulate.
