You will save buckets of $s during the time you occupy your home or commercial building. Enough in fact to totally recoup the added cost of doing the insulation job correctly with our foam in the first place.

Important Note: Now after properly insulating your home with Empire Foam Solutions Bio-Renewable Based Spray or Injection Cavity Fill Foam your home has been made quite air-tight – controlled infusion of fresh air and exhaust of humid/stale air is essential and will complete the major home efficiency improvement that you have applied to your home.  An HRV (Hear Recovery Ventilator) from Venmar, Lifebreath or equivalent will do the job nicely.  Links to information about these essential systems can be found on our  LINKSpage.  Purchasing can be made through your local HVAC contractor or through us (for you do-it-your-selfers).
