    Touch ‘n Foam Introduces Free Energy Savings Calculator New Online Tool Adds Up Potential Energy Savings by Sealing Cracks & Gaps in

    Home

    38% of home energy dollars go right out the window literally.

    ST. LOUISMay 16, 2011 Homeowners interested in reducing your air

    conditioning bills this summer, take heed. The

    bulk of energy loss in most homes is caused by

    air leakage, which occurs when outside air

    enters a house through drafty windows, cracks

    and openings. Sealing these leaks with DIY

    spray foam insulation can significantly reduce

cooling costs in warm weather and heating costs during cold weather. Using Touch

    ‘n Foam’s new Energy Savings Calculator, homeowners can now easily calculate potential savings by air sealing their homes with Touch ‘n Foam spray foam

    insulation. The free Energy Savings Calculator can be accessed online at

    http://www.touch-n-foam.com/calculator.php.

    “We developed our free, online Energy Savings Calculator so homeowners can see the hundreds of dollars they can save by filling in the cracks and gaps around their home with insulating foam,” says Kevin Corcoran, marketing manager at Touch ‘n

    Foam. When people discover how much cool air or heat is slipping out of the little gaps and holes around their homes they realize it’s really quite similar to having

    holes in their pockets.”

    To calculate potential savings, homeowners simply enter their average monthly energy bill total, the square footage of their house and the number of areas that are susceptible to unwanted airflow. The tool then calculates their potential monthly and annual savings on their energy bills, and the amount of time it will take for the Touch ‘n Foam insulating sealant (about $5 per can) to pay for itself.

“Some leaks, like those around windows and doors, are easy to identify because a

    homeowner can usually feel the air entering their home,” says Corcoran. “But it’s

    important to also inspect for less obvious cracks and gaps in and around the home.”

    Areas to inspect include attic hatches, light switches, electrical outlets, foundation sill plates, electrical/cable/HVAC entry points, bath vents, plumbing entry points and dryer vents.

    Touch ‘n Foam products are available nationwide at many home and hardware stores, and retails for about $5 per. For additional information, visit http://www.touch-n-foam.com or call 800-325-6180.
