Spray foam insulation is known as an efficient type of insulation to most people. Did you know that it also acts as an air barrier?
Over 90% of homes have those corners or ledges where the comfortable air can escape. These are common spots for air leaks that spray foam can seal:
- Recessed lights
- Hollow spaces in walls and floors
- Attic hatches
- Plumbing vents
- Wiring holes
- Open soffits
- windows and doors
This causes HVAC systems to work harder to create more of that comfortable air for your home and your family. As a result, your energy bill will be higher, month after month.
Spray foam insulation bonds directly to the wood joists and expands as it is applied to a space. The foam expands to fill all of those nooks and crannies in your attic space, filling the spaces where air leaks from your home, ultimately driving down those utility bills.
Spray foam insulation will save you money every month, for many years. If you decided to have spray foam insulation installed in your home or building, make sure that you use a professional contractor who will educate you on the insulation installation process.
