Energy Efficient Insulation By The Triad Group!!

Aren't we always looking for ways to save money on a daily basis???    

Well here is one way that is directly related to the construction of your home.   

The type of insulation that you use inside your home directly relates to the cost of your electric bill.  So whether your home is insulated with fiberglass or foam may actually be costing you more money every month.

Why choose foam insulation? Compared to standard fiberglass insulation, both cellulose and foam insulation provide superior performance.  Fiberglass tends to leave gaps that reduce its effectiveness.  Fiberglass insulation has a smaller R-value per inch of thickness than both cellulose and foam, but fiberglass is much cheaper than both cellulose and foam.

Foam insulation is superior to Cellulose due to how well it expands and seals all the small cracks and crevices in your home.  While cellulose is a very dense material that has great sealing capabilities, foam provides slightly better results.

While foam insulation can be almost 2 times more expensive than standard fiberglass insulation, you may see up to a 50% decrease in your energy bill almost immediately.  Not a bad return on your investment!!!
