What kind of problems will insulation, air sealing, and other home performance upgrades solve? At Vermont Foam Insulation, our services are exclusively aimed at tackling the challenges that prevent New England homes from staying comfortable and being energy efficient. If you are looking to permanently resolve any of the following problems, we have the solutions you need. 

Indoor Drafts 

Upgrading your home's attic and crawl space with professionally installed spray foam insulation expertly fills gaps and cracks, forming a permanent barrier against air infiltration. This upgrade is especially beneficial in the attic and crawl space – key areas where outside air typically penetrates to disrupt your home's comfort. By establishing a consistent and airtight thermal envelope, spray foam insulation significantly diminishes the drafts caused by air leakage. 

The insulative properties of both cellulose and spray foam insulation (which is rated in R-value) further help stabilize the temperatures inside your home, which will also cut down on the drafts you feel inside. This not only ensures a cozier living environment in the harsh New England winters but also maintains a cool, draft-free space during the humid summers. 

Ice Dams

Ice dams occur when heat escapes from your home, melting the snow on your roof, which then refreezes at the eaves and traps water on the roof. This moisture accumulation can cause devastating damage to a home, including structural damage and mold growth. Improving attic insulation and air sealing your home to create a high-performance thermal barrier in the attic will effectively minimize heat loss through the roof, ensuring that the snow atop remains uniformly cold, and melts and drains properly when the time comes.

Depending on the needs and design of your home, Vermont Foam Insulation can install spray foam throughout the attic for both insulating and air sealing, or we can air seal the attic floor with spray foam and blow cellulose insulation on top. 

Cold Floors

Reduce the discomfort of cold floors in your home with a strategic upgrade to spray foam insulation in your crawl space or attic. Often overlooked, the crawl space plays a pivotal role in influencing the temperature of your floors, especially in colder months. Spray foam insulation excels in transforming this area into a thermal boundary, preventing the chill from the ground from seeping into your living spaces — and increasing its efficiency, comfort, and durability. Its superior insulating properties and ability to adhere closely to the crawl space perimeter mean that it can effectively block cold air, keeping the warmth where it belongs – inside your home.

High Heating and Cooling Costs

With a better-insulated home, the heating and cooling load for your furnace, boiler, AC, or heat pump will be greatly reduced. Spray foam insulation keeps heat inside during the winter, allowing you to take full advantage of the heat coming from your air vents or radiators. In the summer, insulation prevents the sun's heat from offsetting the cold air of your AC, meaning you’ll have to run it less often. All of this results in year round energy savings when it comes to heating and cooling.

Moisture and Mold Issues

In critical areas of your home, traditional insulation often falls short in controlling moisture levels. Spray foam insulation, however, excels in creating an impermeable barrier against moisture and humidity (when properly ventilated). By sealing off cracks and gaps, it prevents outdoor humidity and moisture from seeping into your home, a common cause of mold and mildew growth. In the attic, spray foam insulation ensures that the space remains dry and well-regulated, safeguarding your roof structure from moisture-related damages. In the crawl space, it acts as a deterrent against ground moisture and basement leaks, contributing to a healthier, drier foundation. This not only preserves the structural integrity of your home but also promotes a healthier living environment by mitigating the risk of mold and mildew, which are known to cause various health issues.
