Q: How much does Insuladd® cost?
A: All prices and shipping costs are shown on our website! The overall cost per sq ft when using Insuladd® Insulating Additive mixed into paint that you purchase from you local paint store or home improvement center comes out to an average of about $.10 per sq ft of painted wall or ceiling area. The energy cost savings you’ll get from Insuladd® more than pays you back for the cost of the product. In fact, it is very common to see that within a couple of years your energy savings have paid you back for the total cost of painting your home.
Q: I live in a northern climate, will Insuladd® work for me?
A: Absolutely! Adding Insuladd® insulating paint to the interior walls and ceilings of your home will help reduce heat loss from within your home to the cold outside air and make your home much more comfortable and temperature stable. Remember that heat travels to cold. The heat inside your home wants to escape toward the colder outside air.
Q: How many coats of paint should I apply?
A: For best results, apply 2 coats of paint with Insuladd®. Insuladd is such an excellent insulating barrier, anything more than 2 coats only gives a marginal increase in performance.
Q: Should I use Insuladd® both inside and outside?
A: For the optimum in energy efficiency it is best to use Insuladd® both inside and out. However, either application alone will give you a very noticeable increased energy efficiency which in turn drives down utility bills. (We have a report from one of our past customers which is available on our website which shows a 20% reduction in heating oil usage just from painting the ceilings in his home!)
Q: Can I paint over Insuladd® at a later date?
A: Yes! Painting over a surface that has previously been painted with Insuladd® will only result in a slight decrease in performance.
Q: How much Insuladd® do I need?
A: You should figure on an average coverage rate of 250 sq. ft. per gallon for most house paints so you will want one bag of Insuladd® for each gallon of paint that you purchase.
Q: Can Insuladd® be sprayed?
A: Yes! simply remove the small cartridge filter from the spray gun handle or it will clog up trying to strain out the Insuladd® from the paint.
Q: Will Insuladd® change the color of my paint?
A: Insuladd® has the appearance of a very fine white powder and will not affect the color of white or light colored paint. If added to dark colored paint such as navy blue or dark brown for example then a color shift of one shade lighter can be expected.
Q: Will Insuladd® create a texture in my paint?
A: Insuladd® is not visible when added to house paint however on very smooth surfaces you can sometimes feel a slight texture which is normally no different than what you feel in the texture that a paint roller makes when used on the walls of your home.
Q: What kind of paint should I use?
A: Insuladd® mixes equally well in any type of paint so simply use whatever paint you like!
We received our Insuladd in the mail today. My wife learned about your product on a T.V. fix-It show several years ago. We used it when we repainted the exterior of our home. We live in the desert, so our temperatures range from the teens to one hundred plus degrees. The results were immediate and continued year round. Both heating and cooling became more efficient and effective. I have recommended InsulAdd to friends and all who have used it were more than happy with the results. Actually, I can’t understand why it isn’t part of the building codes for new construction. We plan to paint the interior south facing wall and look forward to even more savings. This is the easy and inexpensive way to increase the “R” rating of any building.
