As temperatures rise, so do electric bills. It’s no surprise that Mississippians are concerned with their electric bills and are always on the lookout for ways to cut energy costs. A recent addition to energy-efficient solutions is spray foam insulation and a leader in this marketplace, Insul-Green, recently launched a new website, www.insulgreen.net, introducing ways to conserve energy and save money.
“Insul-Green needed a user-friendly site that informs the public about the advantages of spray foam technology versus traditional insulation,” stated David Crawford, CEO of web design firm U.S.NEXT. “We worked with their management team to develop a website that educates the public about the latest in building insulation - so property owners can determine the best way to make their homes and offices more energy efficient.”
Most people do not realize that as much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes and air leaks can make energy bills unnecessarily high. Spray foam performs as both insulation and an air barrier, closing gaps that let air escape and add dollars to monthly energy bills. In addition to decreasing noise from both outside the home and interior systems, spray foam can also provide a barrier against pollen, dust and insects, helping people with allergies.
Additional benefits of foam insulation include a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and greenhouse gases and prevention of mold and mildew. "As consumers become more environmentally conscious, they are aware of the need to find products that reduce energy consumption in a safe, cost-efficient manner," said James Sebren, managing member of Insul-Green, LLC. "Spray foam technology from Insul-Green is a positive step for our environment as well as consumer pocketbooks."
