3 Energy & Equipment Sizing Analysis 1860 Ridge Creek Lane, Bulverde, TX Office: (210) I Foam IT - Fax: (830) Website: Cost Analysis - 30 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Side-by-Side Cost Comparison Foam It Spray Foam Conventional Fiberglass Cost of Insulation $13, $ 4, Year Mortgage Rate: 5.25% 5.25% Term (years): Monthly Cost (portion of total mortgage payment) $74.35 $ Additional Monthly Cost of Foam It System: $ Energy Savings Analysis ESTIMATED SAVINGS* 53.4% The Foam It Insulation Systems have a proven track record. Benefits like a quieter home, less dust, healthier indoor air quality, and no drafts are all reasons to justify spending a few extra dollars on your home. What is even MORE compelling is that you actually don't have to spend extra dollars on your house to achieve all those benefits! When you use a Foam It Insulation System the savings you experience every month in a lower utility bill actually MORE than pays for the upgrade!! Monthly Cost Comparison Monthly Heating & Cooling Costs with Conventional Fiberglass Insulation $ Monthly Heating & Cooling Costs with Foam It Spray Foam System $ Savings with the Foam It Spray Foam System $ HVAC Sizing Comparison 90 kbtu Furn. / 8.5ton AC 40 kbtu Furn. / 4ton AC 50kBtu & 3.5tons * This energy & equipment sizing analysis is provided by Foam It llc. at no charge using EPA & ResNet preferred REM Design V.12 Energy Analysis Software for the purpose of providing you with an understanding of how foam insulation will dramatically improve your building's energy performance and reduce your HVAC equipment size requirements by reducing energy consumption associated with heating and cooling. This analysis is an estimate of monthly utility costs and equipment size requirements associated with heating and cooling and was produced using known building specifications at the time. Actual utility bills will vary depending on local utility rates and monthly service charges and actual equipment sizing will depend on site conditions, building orientation, window, door, and insulation specifications, and variations between the plan and the actual constructed structure. Electric rate for this analysis was $.11/kWh. If this project is a remodel or addition project, other preexisting energy features of the structure may adversely affect energy savings. This analysis does not include electricity usage associated with lighting, household electronics or appliaces, domestic hot water, or any other electrical consumption not related to heating or cooling the structure. This analysis is not a warranty or guarantee of energy consumption or equipment sizing. It is provided for comparison purposes only and is an estimate of energy consumption and equipment size requirements only. Long-term Energy Savings Summary If you are more of a long-term thinker, then you'll be interested to know how much the Foam It Spray Foam System can save you over the long haul. The analysis to the right shows you how much actual money you can save over time. The annual projections assume that utility rates continue to increase at a rate of 10% annually. The actual rate of increase for the past 15 years has averaged more than 10% naton wide. Cumulative Longterm Savings 1 year: $1, years: $4, years: $8, years: $21, years: $222, years: $1,571,083.95
