Connecticut Retrofit Spray Foam insulation expands around every crevice and seals all airways, the primary source of energy loss. Air Rises and escapes thru the attic. This is referred to as the stack effect. Sealing your attic with attic insulation can help resolve this and eventually lower your bills dramatically.
Indoor temperatures stay constant, allowing decreased use of heat and air conditioning. This translates to savings on utility bills and extends the life of your heating and cooling equipment dramatically.
While the initial costs of installation may exceed that of fiberglass insulation, in the long term Spray Foam is significantly more cost efficient.
Spray foam insulation offers no food value, so it cannot support bacteria or fungal growth. The effective air-sealing characteristic prevents the movement of hot air to the cold parts of the walls, preventing condensation from taking place within the wall cavities. The elimination of condensation within the wall assemblies prevents the growth of molds and mildew.
Special energy efficient financing programs are also available. See more info on Financing an Energy Efficient Home.
Insulation incentive information is available by the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency(DSIRE), a comprehensive database of information on state, local, utility, and federal incentives that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency.
