Source of Comfort
Homes (especially older homes) face comfort issues like increased heating costs, HVAC overload, uneven cooling and heating, and overall, a cold house. Old houses, those built before 1960, do not have the proper insulation in the walls. To fill drafty and cold walls - drill and fill spray foam is an excellent choice. It is an effective insulation method for existing walls. Put the holes in the wall via drilling, loose-fill spray foam into empty cavities. Insulation into the interior and exterior walls keeps the older home cold in summer, warmer in winter and improves sound control in the house.
Lowers the Energy Costs
Insulating old homes by drilling and filling with spray foam can save you 25-40% in energy loss. The empty cavities in the walls of the old home keep your house colder; filling in the holes with spray foam insulation prevents around 40% energy loss. Air leakage through cracks and holes increases the cost of heating massively in winters and the cost of cooling in the summers. Professional insulation contractors can 'drill and fill' the existing walls of your old home in a mess-free and efficient manner.
