One of the most cost effective ways to improve energy efficiency and comfort in the home is sealing and insulating the "envelope" or "shell" of the home. This includes the outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors.

 

According to the EnergyStar.gov, "A knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs (or up to 10% on total annual energy bills) by sealing and insulating."

 

Uses

  • Use to seal air leaks throughout the home to stop drafts, i.e. attics, rim joists, sill plates, basements, and crawl spaces to name a few specific areas.
  • Use to add insulation to block heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer

 

Benefits

  • Lower utility bills
  • Improved comfort, especially during summer and winter
  • Reduced noise from outside
  • Less pollen, dust, and insects entering your home
  • Better humidity control

 

How To Seal And Insulate

  • If you are handy with home improvement projects, check out the Energy Star DIY Guide to sealing and insulating published by the EPA. The Guide offers step-by-step instructions for sealing common air leaks and adding insulation to the attic.
  • If you prefer to leave this up to the experts, hire a spray foam insulation contractor who uses Versi-Foam® insulation products. Ask us for a distributor near you.
  • All the components necessary to use the kit are included, enabling you to seal up your building envelope.
