Energy Efficiency with Spray Foam

Spray Foam Insulation Is Seamless, Making It Energy Efficient

Forty percent of your home’s energy is wasted to air leaks, often in uninsulated attics. Attic temperatures vary  depending on the season and climate. Hot air rises and gets trapped in the attic, making it feel boiling as it tries to leave through the roof. The bottom of the roofing system, called the decking, gets damaged by the extreme heat and gets warped. By sealing every space where air could escape, you will help to lower your energy bills as your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to replace the escaped air and your roof won’t get damaged from this easily fixed problem. Homeowners who have heard of spray foam insulation usually know about it being good for attics, but it can also be used for walls, as well. The original insulation rolls you see on the inside of attics and between wall frames that are made out of fiberglass and leave many gaps for air to escape. Instead, the seamless foam adheres to the frames and rafters, not allowing anything to get through. This helps traps air, allowing your HVAC unit to properly cool and heat it.

Spray insulation is also a great moisture deterrent. Water can seep through the gaps in between the fiberglass insulation rolls, leading to mold and wood rot happening in your home. If you have a leaky roof or a pipe burst behind a wall, mold won’t grow from the water if you have spray foam insulation because it is seamless and waterproof. Made of the same foam material used on roofs that can last for decades against harsh UV rays and storms, spray foam insulation can withstand high heat, fluctuating temperatures, and leaks in your home and attic.
