How Spray Foam Insulation Can Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Spray foam insulation is a versatile, durable and cost-effective option to help homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their home. This type of insulation is applied on site and expands to fill all the nooks and crannies where heat tends to escape the most, such as cracks, gaps and voids. It is a good choice for difficult-to-reach areas or complex structures, such as domed ceilings. In addition, it conforms to the unique design of a building or home and provides designers with a great deal of flexibility. Go here

A spray foam insulation installer can choose between open and closed-cell spray foam. Closed-cell is more expensive but physically stronger and also creates an effective vapor barrier that eliminates the need for a separate vapor barrier. Open-cell is more economical but weaker and does not provide the same vapor protection.

Spray Foam Insulation Demystified: A Comprehensive Homeowner’s Guide

When properly installed, spray foam insulation can dramatically cut a homeowner’s heating and cooling costs. It prevents warm air from escaping during the winter and cool air from seeping in during the summer, keeping the conditioned space comfortable with less energy usage.

This type of insulation can also improve indoor air quality by preventing outside moisture and allergens from entering the home. Since it is so effective at forming an air barrier, it makes it nearly impossible for airborne pollutants to make their way into the living space, which in turn reduces the amount of time HVAC air filters have to spend clogging up with dust, pollen and other contaminants.
