Insulate Your New Home with Foam Insulation
It is a simple fact that the cost of heating and cooling your home is not going to go down by itself. The cost of energy, whether electricity, oil or gas is steadily increasing and if you are going to keep your costs under control it will have to be done in the way you build your home. Instead of opting for the standard pink fiberglass insulation that only does a moderately effective job of insulating, consider having foam insulation sprayed between the studs in your walls and in the attic between joists and rafters.
This type of foam insulation will create a much better barrier due to the fact that it is sprayed in place. It will fill in gaps and cracks that fiberglass misses. More importantly foam has a much higher R-factor per inch of depth than the pink stuff. It will not sag over time leaving sections of your wall exposed and causing spikes in your utility bills.
