House Insulation Systems Tax Incentives and Other Benefits House Insulation Systems Tax Incentives and Other Benefits

An ideal home must be properly ventilated, well sealed and well insulated. But to achieve that kind of home, you don’t have to use too much lumber. Rather, you can simply use a house insulation system that is cost-efficient and environmental friendly. There are numerous insulation systems available today depending on the size of your home, your location and your budget. However, if you ask any home owner, the best ones are the spray foam insulations. In fact, spray foam insulation are among the list of environmental-friendly materials that you can possibly get tax incentives for.

How to Know that You Have a Poor Insulation System
No matter how environmental-friendly you think your house insulation system is, if it isn’t very effective in keeping the moisture away from the structure it will not do you much good. For example, if the walls of your home are too hot to touch during summer or too cold during winter then that means that your insulation system is poor.

Other signs include, but are not limited to, high heating and cooling costs, uneven heating levels in between rooms and floors, as well as molds growing on the different areas of your home. If you have these problems then it’s time to consider other insulation systems that will work for you and your budget.

Kinds of House Insulation Systems
There are numerous house insulation systems but the most popularly used are the fiberglass, wool and open and/or closed cell polyutherane.

Fiberglass looks similar to a fibrous blanket that snug fits in between walls. It is lightweight, strong and robust. Fiberglass is weather-resistant and can be used to construct panels that prevent heat loss during winter months. However, the production of fiberglass is extremely hazardous to human because it irritates the mucous membranes and respiratory tract. Also, fine dusts, glass filaments, and other vapors that are released during production could be harmful to the environment, too.

Meanwhile, wool can become too stuffy during summer months although it’s a naturally occurring fiber. However, it is more fire resistant and better in soundproofing.

The open and/or closed cell polyutherane are another types of spray form insulation. Open cell are denser and weaker compared to the closed cell. However, the former is cheaper than the latter. Both forms of polyutherane make excellent fills for cavities and they provide greater insulators than all traditional insulators combined because they are water-resistant, stops air and humidity infiltration, adds strength to structural frames and saves energy to up to 50% costs in both winter and summer months.

These are the reasons why homes sprayed with open and/or closed cell polyutherane as part of the house insulation system qualify for state and federal tax deductions. Home owner that use this service are given tax credit, which usually ranges from 10% of your state and federal tax to approximately $500. Other requirements for such rebate include heating, ventilating, air conditioning, metal and asphalt roofs, windows and doors as well as the presence of appliances running on renewable sources of energy like geothermal heat pumps, wind turbines and solar energy systems.

Although the closed and/or open cell spray foam insulators are more expensive than the traditional options, they provide long-term savings on energy bills. With such insulators as part of your house insulation system, you are assured of not only tax deductions but of decreased energy consumption costs.
