There is so much information available about spray foam insulation that it can be overwhelming and sometimes contradictory. The information we have provided is designed to bring into focus the key advantages for using spray polyurethane foam as your home insulation solution. When evaluating the use of spray foam as an insulation solution some of the most important items to consider are:
Control the Air
To create an energy efficient structure you need to control the air movement within. A significant amount of the air inside a structure infiltrates through the walls, ceilings and floors. A structure that leaks air is not energy efficient. Adding an advanced insulation system like spray foam will help you control the air leakage. When properly installed spray foam quickly expands to fill the cracks, crevices, gaps and voids that exist in every structure. In addition spray foam will conform to the curves, irregular surfaces and spaces to form a superior thermal envelope around your entire structure.
Understand R-Value
Typical R-value tests will measure only one component of the heat transfer process which is called the Conduction (the transfer of heat by direct contact). R-value alone does not properly reflect the insulating power of spray foam. When you combine the high R-value per inch of foam insulation along with its ability to stop air infiltration you can achieve a thermal envelope that is superior to traditional forms of insulation.
Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs
What is the major reason you invest in a superior insulation system like spray foam insulation? TO REDUCE HEATING AND COOLING COSTS! Now that the air leakage has been controlled along with the highly effective R-value of spray foam you can expect substantial long term savings on your heating and cooling costs.
