Expanding Foam Insulation

February 24th, 2013

Expanding foam insulation is one of the most effective insulation materials. There was a time not long ago where the only insulation choice was pink fiberglass rolls. Today there are more options because there has been more research into how to best insulate your home and which materials work best. Foam insulation is one of the better materials to use. The foam provides a secure barrier between your interior and exterior walls and ceilings. The process of installing this type of insulation needs to be left up to the professionals because it is messy to work with and specialty tools are required. This is a cost effective way of insuring that your home is energy efficient and that your climate inside your home is comfortable. How It Works It is interesting to see how insulating foam works. Unlike other materials that are used in insulation this material literally expands to fit space in between walls so the space becomes air tight. That air tight barrier keeps the cold out! A trained technician will come to your home and spray the insulation in the space between your walls, ceilings, crawl space where ever there is a need for insulation. It is important to use a fully trained technician that is familiar with installing this type of insulation (Attics Plus offers fully trained technicians). Once the insulation is in place the technician will clean up and your house will immediately be come warmer. You will notice a difference immediately. Retrofitting older homes with this type of insulation is easier than using other types of insulation in bringing your home up to speed. Environmentally Friendly Expanding foam is environmentally friendly which means that it does not break down and become a pollutant. It is also environmentally friendly for the interior of your home. It will not harm your indoor air space like many other insulating materials may. It is a completely safe option for you, your home and your environment. A Great Way To Save This insulation is a great way to save! It is an effective way to bring down energy bills, it is a lot more cost effective than you may think to install and you will realize your install costs back in a lot less time than you think! You can easily shave off 30% of your utility costs when you use this type of insulation.
