While traditional fiberglass insulation can only protect against heating and cooling loss caused by conduction, spray foam thoroughly protects against all six paths of heating and cooling loss.
Conduction – The transfer of heat through materials in contact with insulation.
Convection – The movement of hot and cold air in your walls.
Radiation – The transfer of heat through your walls and roof.
Air Infiltration – The transfer of heat by air flow between the exterior and interior.
Moisture Accumulation – Moisture within the insulation that leads to heat loss/gain.
Air Intrusion – The movement of outside air into your home and then back out.
Spray foam works very well when it is applied to the roof of the attic. You will feel little difference (about 5-10 degrees F) between the attic and your common space. With this type of air sealing and insulation can reduce the energy consumption of heating and cooling between 40 to 60 percent.
Your home will also benefit from a lifetime of:
Better moisture control
Reduced intrusion of dust and pollen, noise and pests
Increased structural strength with closed cell spray foam
There’s no question energy efficient appliances and home improvements help the environment and create savings on our utility bills.
When it comes to keeping heating and cooling costs in check, insulation is the first line of defense. In the winter, heated air moves from living spaces to attics, garages, and the great outdoors. Heating systems fire up to replace all that lost heat. In the summer, air conditioners kick on as heat moves from the outside in.
We installed all as forms of isolation, the main ones are:
