If you have read our Austin spray foam insulation blog at all, you’re probably already aware of the many of the benefits of this type of insulation for your home – but do you realize the financial benefits? We want to touch on the various ways you can put more money in your wallet by choosing spray foam insulation in this article.
Better energy efficiency for homes and businesses. Poor or inadequate insulation can cost you dearly when it comes to energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy claims that insulation accounts for about 40% of wasted energy. Think about how this affects your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system and how hard it has to work to cool or heat your home depending on the season. Spray foam insulation not only lowers energy costs and makes your home more comfortable, it also extends the lifespan of your HVAC system!
A hidden benefit of high ROI. Austin homeowners often update their homes, but that is the return on investment of those projects? With spray foam insulation you’ll average a return of more than 75% according to a 2017 report by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry and the National Association of Realtors. Many homeowners think updating the kitchen or bathrooms are the best investments in terms of ROI, but insulation upgrades actually give you the best bang for your buck.
What about increasing the value of your property? From painting the interior and replacing the roof to landscaping the outdoors, there are lots of things you can do to increase property values. That said, few updates increase the value of your property like those that often go unnoticed by the naked eye, such as insulation. A home with curb appeal and that’s appealing on the inside is important, but those in the market for a home are often more interested in energy efficiency, whether the roof is in good shape, electrical and plumbing, and other behind-the-scenes issues that impact the safety and integrity of a home.
Nearly everyone these days is concerned about “black mold” and how it can impact the health of their family members. With spray foam insulation you can rest easy knowing that a vapor barrier protects against moisture and the growth of mold, along with the high costs of repairs that often go along with a mold problem.
All in all, you can save a small fortune and keep more money in your wallet by simply choosing the best type of insulation available today. At HabiShield, we’re happy to explain the advantages of spray foam insulation for your home or business! Give us a call today.
