The residents of the Temperance build made a simple request – they wanted their home to be green; so we went in and sprayed it purple! No, not the paint colour. Poly Plus came by last week and filled the walls and ceilings with purple spray foam insulation which is an environmentally friendly building solution. What makes spray foam so great? Because it is a spray instead of sheets of fiberglass, every crack and corner is completely filled leaving no drafts or room for air to enter or escape the home. This means the cold air stays out and the heat stays in allowing your furnace to not work quite so hard. This lowers your utility bills and gives you more comfort. Also, because the foam fully fills the space, bugs are less likely to enter the home in the spring. Spray foam also reduces moisture infiltration preventing mold growth. Watch how a little purple can make a home turn green!
