Spray Foam Insulation Ontario
Spray Foam Insulation Saves Money on Energy Costs
In Ontario, homeowners have discovered how to save money on seasonal energy costs. The answer is simple - insulating the home with spray foam insulation (also known a Spray Polyurethane Foam). Today, there are still many homes that suffer from patchy heating and cooling, drafty areas, and poor air circulation. These are all symptoms of inadequate insulation – either deteriorated insulation or poorly installed insulation. But whatever the case, it contributes to extra heating and cooling costs, even to the point of money being wasted.
With a professional home energy assessment to evaluate energy consumption and any associated problems, the experts at Great Northern Insulation can recommend viable options to address those problems. Quite often, spray foam insulation can address all of the problems – and it’s done with one application. It’s an insulation approach that provides an airtight seal wherever applied, sealing up every little nook and cranny. The final application serves as a combination air and vapor barrier in areas like the attic, roof, and basement.

Spray Foam Insulation and the Environment
Ontario residents are cognizant of environmentally friendly products, and are therefore asking for this when insulating their homes. Spray foam insulation is considered to be a “green product” for a number of reasons. But what makes for the most impact is energy efficiency. Season by season, a home insulated with spray foam consumes less energy and saves the homeowner on utility costs throughout the year. In fact, there are a number of government grants that are available to homeowners who retrofit with spray foam insulation.
For the professionals at Great Northern Insulation, WALLTITE ECO™ has become the “go-to” product for many residential applications. It’s a premium insulating system that requires expert installation in order to achieve optimum results. The teams at GNI are well trained and experienced with the product and the install – they use leading edge equipment and are highly proficient in the application process. More importantly, this should not turn into a personal do-it-yourself project - the risks are too challenging for the unqualified.
When a home is outfitted with WALLTITE ECO™ insulation, it provides the best thermal insulation on the market; the most effective air and vapor barrier possible; and energy savings that are measurable from one season to the next. There’s no other insulation product can quite compare.
