How Spray Foam Insulation Works
According to the US Department of Energy, the average home can lose up to 40 percent of the heat produced by the furnace through air infiltrating into the building. Spray foam insulation works well to stop this process because of its formula and how it is applied. The polyurethane foam comes in two separate containers and is sprayed simultaneously. When the two chemicals combine, they rapidly expand around the structure. This allows it to seep into the cracks and crevices.
When it dries, it becomes firm. The rigidness of it adds to the structural strength of your walls. The density of the spray foam insulation prevents air from passing through it. It conforms around every protrusion like joists, rafters, framing and into the gaps. When you choose polyurethane, you can guarantee a leak-free seal in virtually any space.
R-value means resistance to heat flow. A product’s R-value is how the amount of thermal protection it provides is measured. Spray foam insulation boasts an R-value of 4 to 6 per inch, which is more than double the protection of blown in and batt insulation.
Open-cell and Closed-cell
We offer both open and closed-cell spray foam insulation. The open-cell variety tends to be more affordable because it does not provide moisture protection as effectively as closed-cell. When it dried, it takes on a porous form similar to a sponge. It doubles as effective noise insulation. Closed-cell is the strongest variety because it is completely solid and lacking in pores. It is water-tight and has even been used a roofing material on commercial buildings.
Many homeowners purchase houses because of the beautiful cathedral ceilings, lofts and other spaces that can be hard to insulate. With spray foam insulation, we are able to reach those places easily and create a strong seal. No other insulation product can offer the same protection in irregularly shaped areas. With a quick installation process, we will be in and out of your home in no time.
Protection that Lasts
Unlike blown in insulation that tends to settle, or fiberglass insulation that can sag, spray foam insulation stays in place. It won’t crack or begin to leak. Many home insulation specialists encourage clients to use the spray foam in conjunction with other insulation types. You can place blown in or batts in the typical places, and spray around them and in awkward spaces to get maximum results.
This product doesn’t absorb water like other insulating materials, so it will not become a place for mold and mildew to form their massive colonies. It is also inedible for pests like insects and rodents and will not attract them. This will help to keep your house a healthier environment.
Cost of Investment
Spray foam insulation becomes a permanent part of the structure. So, in comparison to other insulation types, it can be more of an initial investment. The actual long-term costs will result in savings. Over time, the amount you will save on your utility bill from superb energy efficiency will pay for the initial cost, and then some.
Our certified team of experts can perform an energy audit to see how effectively your home is resisting heat transfer. We will evaluate things like your current insulation, your windows and more to see if there is room for improvement. Making changes to your house will not only be good for the environment, it will be good for your wallet as well. Even just installing spray foam insulation can save you up to 50 percent on your utility bills. Contact us today for a free estimate!
