Looking for ways to lower your energy bill? One option may be to upgrade your home’s insulation. There are many types of insulation for residential use including blanket, structural insulated panels, foam board, loose-fill, and blown-in fiberglass.
Insulation Home Uses
Your home’s insulation is like an extra layer of skin, shielding the interior of your house from weather elements and acting as a barrier to unwanted air leakage. Often, gaps, holes, breaks, warps, uncovered interior nooks, concrete exterior blocks, unreached corners and unseen crevices compromise your home’s insulation integrity.
Here’s a statistic to consider when thinking about reaching out to any local professional company to do the work: the average American home loses 20-30 percent of its heated or cooled air due to leakage.
The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
One of the best options available is spray foam insulation as a potential solution for your home’s energy plan. Spray foam insulation is a liquid foam sprayed into specific areas of your home to form an insulating layer. Used for over 30 years, this type of insulation can be used to insulate your roof, walls, floors, and anywhere you need to plug and prevent air leaks.
Spray foam insulation has distinct advantages over other types of insulation, including:
- It can be used in hard-to-reach places.
- It can provide additional interior sound insulation.
- It is highly effective in eliminating costly air leakages.
In addition to its usefulness for indoor climate control, spray foam insulation also helps head off rodent and insect invasions, reduces contamination by airborne pollen during allergy season, and prevents water leaks that can cause mold, mildew, wood rot, and a subsequent increase in your water bill.
The holes, gaps, and breaks that allow air to escape your house, sneak into your home’s interior, and ultimately prevent your insulation layer from performing optimally can be filled with this type of insulation, allowing you to save on your heating and cooling bills over time.
