The Environmental Protection Agency and the ENERGY STAR commission all encourage homeowners to add insulation to their homes to help keep them cool in summer and warm in winter. This is not only environmentally-friendly, as it saves electricity and reduces the need to burn fossil fuels, but budget-friendly as well by lowering your heating and cooling bills.
One of the most popular modern types of insulation is chemical spray-foam. This is a remarkably effective solution that allows you to fill even small air-leak gaps in your home with an expanding foam that seals them up and keeps the temperatures contained better than most other options.
However, installing this foam is not a simple process and must be done by a professional. This makes researching the best foam installation company important, as a sub-par product or poor installation processes can not only cause serious health issues, but be expensive and difficult to remove.
Picking the Right Installation Company
When evaluating the insulation options for your attic, it’s important to speak with several companies. In some instances, spray foam may not be the best option for you, and a reputable company will not attempt to install foam where it may be dangerous. There are several ways to find out if your company is reputable:
- The company will offer you plenty of materials detailing out exactly what to expect, including any health issues that may emerge.
- Ask for their certification credentials and their experience with installing. Most new companies also have newer technicians, who are more prone to making mistakes with the installation process, which can cause health issues.
- They will inform you whether their installation process requires you to leave your home for a period while the substance is installed (in many cases, this is strongly advised).
- They will provide you with a written estimate and contract, and explain it to you thoroughly. This contract will also include a written guarantee of removal, in the event something goes wrong.
