It’s too hot or it’s too cold and no matter how you try you can’t get your home to maintain a constant temperature.

The constant flip-flopping of the temperature in your home is probably costing you a fortune in monthly energy bills. Updating the insulation in your home with a material that creates an air barrier will help you have a more comfortable and energy-efficient home.

RetroFoam of Michigan’s General Manager Eric Garcia spoke to Kylie Ambu on WZZM’s The Exchange on how homeowners can survive the changing seasons. The best fix is to add insulation that creates an air seal that keeps the outside air out and the air you pay to treat inside. The insulation material that can do this is foam.

Both injection and spray foam will work to seal up all the areas where air leaks into your home in the attic, exterior walls, crawl space, rim joist, and basement. Foam insulation expands in a way when it is installed that it is able to fill all of the nooks and crannies.
