Make It Better
Face it. Living in Ontario, half of our year is going to be freezing cold and the other half can get really hot. Insulation is one of the biggest influencers on both our comfort and our energy bills. You can reduce both your AC and Heating so that you can save money on monthly bills. If you’ve been struggling through our Canadian winters in your home, or sweating it out through the summer it may be time to improve your insulation.
Why Improve Rim Joist Insulation?
One of the best ways to improve your home's energy efficiency is to ensure that you have properly insulated rim joists. The rim joist is where the foundation meets the exterior wall just above ground level. If it is not insulated, the only thing standing between you and the outside air is one piece of wood. But it's not just air that can get in! Allergens, insects, dust, moisture, and mold spore can sneak into your home through the cracks in your rim joists. Fiberglass can't stop any of these things from getting in. That's why we suggest you upgrade to sprayfoam.
You may be putting away money to finish that basement, but you could be putting away even more if it wasn't costing you so much on your energy and heating bills. Unfinished basement walls and floors are one of the biggest challenges when it comes to controlling the temperature of your home. With spray foam we can provide a quick and highly effective solution to start saving you money and increase you r comfort right away.
