Spray Foam Insulation
Protecting your Oregon or Washington home from the elements, also known as weatherizing, with HomeRx Heating & Air Conditioning can result in significant energy savings and improved comfort.
While it is possible to heat and cool a poorly weatherized home with a large enough heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, you will end up paying unnecessarily high energy bills and wearing out your mechanical systems more quickly. Services like insulation and air sealing are less expensive than blasting your heater or air conditioner and they allow for more even indoor temperatures.
If your home was built prior to 2010, you could benefit from a home insulation audit from HomeRx. In fact, approximately 90 percent of the homes in the Pacific Northwest show areas of significant improvement in energy performance with attention to spray foam insulation and sealing.
Plus, professional house insulation is an investment that pays for itself in just one to three years through savings on your energy bill alone. With the right attention to home, attic, crawl space, or basement insulation, you will use your heater less in the winter, and air conditioner less in the summer, but you will be comfortable all year round.
