AirTight Open Cell and Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation to Help You Protect Your Home or Office and Save Up To 40% On Your Energy Bills

Your Home Insulation Solution

The importance of proper insulation usually becomes apparent when it’s too late to correct the problem. Heating and cooling account for 50%-70% of the energy used in the average American home. Homeowners quickly learn that undesirable air and moisture infiltration in a finished house increases energy consumption, which in turn, leads to high utility bills and steadily decline resale home value.

SAVE UP TO 40% ON ENERGY COST

Sealing and insulating the “envelope” or “shell” of your home — its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors — is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort.

Open and Closed Cell Spray Foam

There are two types of materials available in the spray foam insulation industry.
Open-cell and closed-cell spray polyurethane foam systems. Energy Shield Insulators offers them both.

New Construction

Every New Construction job Energy Shield Insulators does, comes with an AirTight Air Infiltration Package; which includes caulking of all seams, joints, and penetrations as well as foaming around all windows and doors.

Retrofitting

Adding insulation is part of almost every home retrofit project. Installing spray foam insulation as a barrier between the home and the outside is one of the most important ways to improve the efficiency of any home.
