“Before installing Icynene® in our attic, the second floor of our house was unlivable on hot days. We couldnʼt get the temperature below 81 and that was with the AC running constantly. The kids didnʼt even want to play in their rooms! With Icynene, the difference is incredible. We love the energy savings, but the best part is how comfortable it is now. We’re no longer stuck living downstairs all summer!”

“I had a room insulated with Icynene® last month in December 07. Just wanted to let you know that today was the coldest day of the year but the room is nice and toasty!

I am very happy with your product. Thanks again. I am singing the praises of Icynene to anyone that will listen. I plan on doing the other room within the next few months and will definitely be fiving you a call. Thank you again.”

“My wife Sandy and I live in rural Hubbard, Iowa.  We live in a 32’ by 42’ Morton-style building that is attached to a larger machine shed. The 1,350 ft2 home has 10’ walls and a 14’ cathedral ceiling.

During the epic blizzard of 2007, we lost power in our home for 4 full days. It took until the end of the fourth day (when the power came back on) for the temperature to drop to 52 degrees.  We used a 1 lb propane tank (similar to what you would use while camping) to run a very small heater each night, and that actually warmed up the whole house 2 degrees!

Last year, we only used 500 gallons of LP in 12 months to heat our home as well as all of our domestic hot water! We had Icynene® sprayed throughout on all wall and roof areas.  Our last home, which was 2,600 ft2 took 1500 gallons of LP for the year. Pretty amazing.

Icynene does what it says it will – it pays for itself in one year. I would recommend Icynene to anyone.”

“I want to thank you and your crew for the wonderful job that they did on insulating my addition. My wife tells me that they acted professionally when they were there and I can attest to how well they kept the job site clean both during and after.”

“We have a ceramic floor above the garage and in the winter, the floor would often be 18 degrees colder than the room temperature.  After removing the fiberglass and adding Icynene®, the temperature difference is now less than 2 degrees.  And we no longer have frozen pipes!”

“Our home in Wayland, MA was built in the early 50’s with minimal insulation.  We installed new triple-pane windows, but our heating oil bill hit $900 last January.

I researched the options and selected Icynene® spray foam.  March & Martin just sprayed and sealed our attic and knee walls, and did a great job.

In a word, wow!  I expected some improvement, but not the dramatic change our entire family noticed.  Last week, for example, the temp dropped to 30 F overnight.  We keep the thermostats at 64 in the evening, and 57 at night.  I noticed that the furnace never fired up that night.  By morning, the temp upstairs was still 61 – and 58 downstairs.

Icynene’s open cell foam is ideal for older homes like ours.  We found a narrow space over our entryway, for example, that had no insulation.  (No wonder the closet was icy in the winter!)  With Icynene’s open cell foam, the March & Martin team could just spray away and fill this space.

In this continuing Great Recession, budgets are tight.  We are very pleased with our investment in Icynene; the pay back is obvious.”

“With Icynene® in our townhouse, our energy bills are 35% less than our neighbors who used fiber glass, and with the addition of an air filter, our son is having less asthma attacks. Icynene has really made the difference.”

   Murray Clarke, Toronto, Canada

 

“We used Icynene® to insulate our old home and we have already experienced a 25% reduction in heating oil consumption and I haven’t installed the exterior clapboard yet.”

–   Tom Anderson, Petersham, Massachusetts

 

“The attic of my cabana-style building would typically be about 150 degrees in the summer.  After re-insulating the underside of the roof deck with Icynene®, the attic is no more than 1-5 degrees different than the inside of the building
 below.”

–   Bob Miller, Sarasota, Florida

 

“We are living in an area where the design temperature is –20F and with Icynene®, our gas bills are only $60 per month.  Our house was so well sealed that when the 5 Star Plus rating technician arrived, he was surprised that our house had such a low rate of leakage.”

   Ron Bateman, Anchorage, Alaska

 

“We are very happy and pleased… We have a 4,000 square foot home on the lake in Emmetsburg that had a total bill of $610 for heating and colling for the first two years. Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative is monitoring our progress and savings.”

   Steve Heldt, Iowa

 

“In that cold winder of 2001, the peak gas bill to heat this 4,200 square foot home was $85.78.”

   Dave Helland, Saylorville, Iowa
