Everything You Need to Know About Spray Foam Insulation

What is Spray Foam Insulation?

While other forms of insulation, such as mineral wool or fiberglass, come in precut sheets or rolls that can be put in walls of your home, spray foam insulation is the result of a chemical reaction. As it sets in and fills a space, it expands, making it more efficient at providing an airtight seal. Other types of insultation are also prone to “settling”, which make them less effective at keeping in warmth. There are many different types of spray foam insulation that can be used depending on your climate and how your home is constructed. When you call Premier Insulation of Kentucky, we will always examine the site and determine what solution is best for you and your home.

Why use Spray Foam Insulation?

When determining what type of insulation to use for your home, sealing air and ensuring energy-efficiency are top priorities. While spray foam insulation does those things exceptionally well, consider the additional benefits that spray foam insulation can offer.

  1. It deters moisture. Water can easily seep through and around pipes and vents in your home. Traditional insulation needs to be replaced when it gets wet. Spray foam, however, does not get damaged by water leaks. It retains its properties and will dry out and continue insulating as normal. Additionally, spray foam insulation will get into all the nooks and crannies of your home, which make water leaks less likely to occur in the first place.
  2. It reduces noise. Because spray foam insulation fills more crevices than traditional insulation, sounds from the outside will not travel into your home as easily. The insulation absorbs sound waves so road traffic, neighbors or early-morning birds will be heard less, providing you with a quieter and more peaceful home overall.
  3. It provides structural strength. Spray foam insulation is incredibly dense and has strong adhesive qualities. When it is installed, it essentially glues building materials together keeping an airtight seal, of course, but also providing additional strength to residential or commercial properties.
  4. It is environmentally friendly. Going green is a big initiative that benefits all, and spray foam insulation can help the environment in ways that other insulation cannot. Because it helps you keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, you consume less energy in heating and cooling, which reduces your carbon footprint.
