The Top 5 Myths about Spray Foam Insulation

1. Spray foam insulation is too expensive

Premier Insulation of Kentucky aims to provide our customers with the best possible and cost-efficient insulation and home maintenance services without breaking the bank or the budget. Even if spray foam insulation has a higher upfront cost, your new and improved insulation has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars each year on your energy bills.

2. Spray foam insulation does not insulate as well as fiberglass insulation

While spray foam insulation is less thick than fiberglass insulation, it takes less spray foam insulation to achieve the same level of insulation, if not better, than fiberglass. Spray foam insulation expands to fill more gaps, nooks, and crannies than fiberglass insulation and provides a more airtight seal. This airtight seal will ensure that our home stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter with the best possible insulation.

3. Spray foam can only be used for insulation

While spray foam’s primary purpose is insulation, it can also be used to prevent moisture leakage, fill gaps in your structure, and provide residential stability. Because of spray foam’s ability to expand and fill gaps, it serves more purpose than just insulation.

4. Spray foam insulation contains unsafe chemicals

Many people worry about the chemicals in spray foam insulation, but this is not a concern for our customers. Closed-cell spray foam insulation, which we proudly offer here at Premier Insulation of Kentucky, can omit fewer gases than other forms of spray foam insulation and therefore has a lower global warming potential.

5. Spray foam insulation is not environmentally friendly

It is more important than ever to consider the environment when you are making decisions about your home. At Premier Insulation of Kentucky, our insulation provides a seal so airtight that little to no heat can escape your house in the winter, nor can cold air escape in the summer. Due to this regulated temperature, you will use less energy each month, which will help lower your energy consumption and your carbon footprint.
