August 17, 2009 // Franchising.com // - USA Insulation, the only home insulation franchise company in the United States, has recently added four new franchise locations to serve Chicago, IL, Portland, ME, Omaha, NE and the Central New Jersey Area. The new franchisees are taking advantage of an environment in which the demand for home insulation continues to rise due to economic conditions and a need to increase energy efficiency.
Interest in insulation has grown in recent years because of rising energy costs. Homeowners in regions with hot summers and cold winters, like our new Chicago insulation customers are realizing that gas and electric bills are unnecessarily high in homes without proper insulation.
More Americans are aware of the need for energy conservation and consider foam insulation to be an effective method for creating an energy efficient home. A more comfortable, quieter home environment and a higher resale value are also incentives for adding insulation.
"Aside from the typical reasons for insulating a home, many of our new customers have wanted to take advantage of the energy tax credit", says USA Insulation Franchise Corporation President, Patrick Pitrone. "Adding home insulation now can get you a 30 percent federal energy tax credit of up to $1,500."
Each USA Insulation franchise owner is equipped with an exclusive territory, ongoing business, marketing and management training, corporate support, marketing and promotional materials including the use of trademarks and logos, and exclusive use of the USA Foam Insulation product. All of the company's home insulation contractors are trained and certified in the installation process. New franchisees can build their businesses using a proven model and start out with the name recognition and reputation that USA Insulation has built over the past three decades.
