Are You Looking for a Way to Cut Energy Costs

We live in strange times. While there are millionaires making more money than any time in the past, we have others who are living in a space that few would even consider a home. In a time when there are large opulent buildings where the rich and the famous live and run down spaces that few would consider habitable. In fact, there are even landlords in some parts of the country who are profiting from the rent control apartments that they own. A recent surprise inspection in Omaha, Nebraska, found apartments that were infested with bugs and had ceilings that had openings big enough to see outside through. No amount of spray foam insulation could make these neglected spaces safe or healthy.

Closed cell spray foam kits provide a way for property owners to make sure that they are doing what they can to control heating and cooling costs. Too often, building owners, both commercial and residential, concern themselves with the cosmetic decisions that need to be made about the building process itself. Instead, many people should take more time reconsidering the efforts that are behind the scenes, literally.

Spray Foam Chemicals Offer a Number of Advantages

Spray foam insulation machines and various other kinds of applications of spray foam chemicals offer an additional defense against both the heat and the cold. This is good news because the latest research indicates that if the energy efficiency of commercial buildings was improved by a mere 10%, the changes would save approximately $40 billion.

Unfortunately, only behind China, the U.S. consumed the most energy in the world in 2016 at 2,272.7 million metric tons of oil. Not surprising, approximately 56% of the energy used in homes in the U.S. is for heating and cooling, according to the Department of Energy. The good news, however, is that there are new materials and processes that allow individuals and businesses to make changes that can lower these numbers, cut costs for property owners, and lessen the environmental footprints that we are having. Currently, the portion of the U.S.’s annual energy created by fossil fuel combustion is 82%, so there is great motivation to make sure that everyone is doing what they can to cut these costs and limit this waste.
