"We're Only A Foam Call Away"

$$$ Examples of Cost Savings $$$

There have been many studies done by both Industry and Independent entities researching the viability of Closed-Cell Foam versus conventional insulation types.
The results have been very definitive indicating increased costs savings over time, with an increased return on investment on both short term and long term basis.
The following Case Studies are only a small sample of information that has been gathered supporting the financial feasibility of using the Closed-Cell Foam product.

Location: Sacramento California
 2400 sq ft homes
 Based on Gas and electric consumption
 Traditionally Insulated homes compared to Close-cell insulation homes
 Average Yearly costs Traditional Closed Cell
 Total Energy Costs $2,716 $1,107
 Average monthly costs $247 $128
 Savings over a 30 year mortgage $42,645
 The monthly savings of $118 at 6% interest costs could pay for an additional $19,758 in mortgage
 The Mainer’s Point of view:
 Inversely, savings on energy bills can be applied to your mortgage reducing the overall interest paid over the life of the loan leading to fewer overall payments and shortening the actual term of the loan.
