Spray Foam Insulation – Energy Efficient Energy Efficient Insulation

When correctly applied by a professional, spray foam insulation is very effective. It creates a custom air seal within the structure, which is especially important in the building envelope where a majority of energy loss occurs. The insulating properties are created from tiny pockets within the spray foam that fill gaps, cracks and crevices. It is also very effective for filling basement rim joists, crawl spaces, overhangs (or cantilevers) and knee walls, all areas where air can escape, making a home less comfortable and energy efficient.

If your home has existing insulation that needs to be removed before spray foam is installed, the contractor will do so. This allows for the most accurate application of the spray foam and ensures that there is no damage to your home’s structural integrity. During this process, it’s generally recommended that homeowners vacate the house as the spraying and curing of the insulation off-gases large amounts of volatile organic compounds.

During the spraying and curing process, it is also advised that homeowners stay away from the area where the spraying is happening to avoid inhalation of these chemicals. It’s often a good idea to combine spray foam insulation with other projects that require opening up the walls, such as installing new windows. New windows will help to reduce a home’s energy bills and provide a more weatherproof, tighter seal.
