Keeping older homes toasty (NAPS)—Older homes often have a unique charm— but few have insulation that meets modern energy efficiency standards. This can result in air leaks, wasted energy and high utility bills. One way to fix this is with spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation. It can be seamlessly added in and around walls, attics and roofs. By sealing cracks, seams and joints, some SPF products provide a waterproof membrane that acts as a vapor and air barrier, which in addition to insulating improves energy efficiency. A properly insulated home can reduce heating and cooling needs by 30 percent, according to the Department of Energy.

Many homeowners don’t realize that the attic is one of the main places where heat and cold air can escape. As the Department of Energy explains, holes in a typical attic account for 15 percent of a home’s energy loss. Cracks and gaps let air out and rainwater in. SPF can fill in around the cracks to create an effective barrier. You can learn more at www. whysprayfoam.org. Savings vary. Find out why in the seller’s fact sheet on Rvalues. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
