My friend has an old house in Boston with high heating bills during the cold winter months. I experimented with my Ryobi Phone Works Inspection scope see what kind of insulation was in his walls. I used my PhoneWorks thermometer to see how adding expanding insulation would impact the performance of the room. The interior surface temperature of the wall before I added insulation was about 63 degrees. It took me about 10 minutes to add insulation to a 2 foot section of the wall and afterwards the interior surface was about 68 degrees. You should consult with a qualified construction professional before impacting your building envelope. Expanding foam should be used with caution. Too much foam can occasional warp window frames. It is a great insulator but should not be used near fireplaces or other points of combustion.
