The Michigan weather is unpredictable and often includes high winds, blowing snow, and frigid temperatures. If your house is drafty it will feel like this weather is in your living room with a cool subtle breeze being the norm – almost like you left a window or door open. In addition, the house is literally leaking money with above average energy bills!
What Causes A Drafty House?
Some older homes don’t have any insulation in the walls or foundation. Other homes may have a type of traditional insulation that will act as a thermal barrier but won’t air seal the home – causing air leaks, drafts, and an uncomfortable living experience.
How to Air Seal Your Home
There is a solution to air seal new and existing homes, and that solution is foam insulation.
Foam insulation will fill the open gaps and voids in your foundation, walls, and attic to air seal your home, keeping warm air in over the winter and cool air in over the summer – working your furnace (or heating source) less and saving up to 50% on your energy bills. Oh yeah, and it won’t feel like you are sitting outside in the wind and snow when watching TV.
