The New Vermont Homeowner’s Guide to Insulation

Vermont home sales have skyrocketed over the past year, as more and more families leave their city apartments behind in search of a little more space. And while it’s easy to fall in love with the historic charm of Vermont’s architecture, moving into a new home—especially an older home—is never without its challenges. 

If you’ve noticed that your new Southern VT home is colder than you’re used to, no matter how high you crank up the heat, you may be dealing with an insulation problem. Many homes throughout the state are underinsulated, which can not only make you uncomfortable but also drive up your energy costs. Thankfully, your local spray foam insulation contractor—Vermont Foam Insulation—is only a phone call away. 

Our Insulation Process 

Upgrading your insulation isn’t as simple as heading over to your local hardware store, buying a few fiberglass batts, and arranging them in your attic. There are many factors to consider when upgrading your home’s insulation, from material to installation methods, and with certain types of insulation, like spray foam, there are safety guidelines that must be strictly followed. 

That’s why it’s so crucial to partner with an insulation contractor that knows what they’re doing. At Vermont Foam Insulation, we’ve perfected our methods and follow a careful process to ensure you get the most out of your investment. 

It All Starts with an Energy Audit 

Your insulation is hidden away inside ceilings and wall cavities, and it isn’t always obvious where the problem is stemming from. That’s why we like to start with an energy audit to evaluate your home and pinpoint the exact locations where you’re losing energy so that we can solve the problem at its source. 

Then, Air Leaks Are Sealed Up 

Tiny gaps and cracks in your home’s construction allow air to move into and out of your living spaces. This can damage any insulation that you do have and make it impossible to keep your conditioned air contained. By locating and sealing up air leaks with spray foam, we can stop air transfer and prevent energy loss. 

Finally, the Right Insulation Is Installed 

There are several different insulation materials, including cellulose insulation and spray foam insulation, and some are better suited to certain applications than others. Our expert team will explain the options clearly and help you decide which type of insulation is the right fit for your needs. We offer both new and retrofit insulation for attics, basements, and walls.
