Spray Foam Insulation – Home Comfort and Efficiency

High-quality insulation helps ensure the interior of your home maintains comfortable temperatures while boosting your home’s energy efficiency. Spray foam insulation is one of the best ways to accomplish this. In this article, we are going to discuss the benefits of spray foam insulation and give you some helpful correlating information.

What Is Spray Foam Insulation?

Comprised of organic chemical compounds, spray foam insulation bonds to the materials surrounding cracks and openings within your home, forming an effective barrier that prevents air leakage. Spray foam insulation comes in two forms, open-cell and closed-cell.

Open-Cell Spray Foam

Open-cell spray foam is both smooth and malleable, and it expands after application. This makes it a great option for areas within your home that are difficult to reach. Open-cell spray foam can also be an effective way to dampen sounds, making for a quiet, comfortable living space.

Closed-Cell Spray Foam

Closed-cell spray foam is a high-density form of insulation which makes it highly stable and durable. This type of insulation is ideal for somewhat confined spaces including basements and attics, but it is also an effective insulation method for any part of your home. Closed-cell spray foam is also water-resistant, protecting your home’s interior against moisture and mildew.

The Advantages of Spray Foam Insulation

Effectively Air Seals

Due to spray foams unique properties, this insulation is also an effective way to air seal your home. Air sealing, or the application of effective measures to reduce or eliminate air leakage, further protects your home from the outside elements. Additionally, air sealing your home makes it even more energy efficient, saving you money on heating and cooling costs. And the higher your home’s energy efficiency is, the higher its resale value. At Radiant Insulation & Drywall, we have certified HERS raters on staff who can measure your home’s precise energy efficiency. We can then provide you with detailed information on how to correct any energy deficiencies your home may have.
