Are the cold drafts in your home making you run to grab extra blankets? What about cold floors causing a need for extra socks?

Not only is the cold a threat to your comfort but can also cause frozen pipes and ice dams.

Don’t let the cold weather control your home any longer.

RetroFoam of Michigan’s General Manager Eric Garcia sat down with eightWest’s Rachael Ruiz to talk about how homeowners can keep their homes warm with foam insulation.

Reinsulating your home with a material like foam that creates an air seal will keep those cold outside temperatures out where they belong. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but foam insulation can pay you back in the long run by saving you money on your monthly energy bill.

It may not occur to you, but the air you are paying to heat is escaping right through your roof if your attic has little to no insulation in it. This can also lead to ice dams, which can damage your roof. Adding spray foam insulation to your roof deck will seal the envelope of your home and keep you from losing heat and money.

Spray foam is also a great fit in the crawl space rim joist, and basement because it expands to fill all of the nooks and crannies in those spaces.

Injection foam insulation is great to stop those drafts from coming in through your exterior walls. It is a quick easy process that doesn’t require taking down any drywall.
