Spray foam insulation refers to a type of plastic that can form a continuous insulation and air sealing barrier in various areas of your home or business. It can help to seal walls, floors, ceiling cavities, and other areas so there is no lost air, and there is no unwanted air infiltration. Our team at Synergy Home has more than a decade of experience insulating the homes and businesses of Lexington, KY.
Gaps and holes can result in up to 40% of the building’s energy being lost, which obviously results in higher energy bills. When you work with us, you can feel confident that we will apply spray foam insulation where it’s needed, and you can rest easy knowing that the air will remain inside where it’s supposed to be. Spray foam insulation is very versatile when compared to other types of insulation, which is why we often recommend it to Lexington residents.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OPEN CELL AND CLOSED CELL SPRAY FOAM
There are two different types of spray foam insulation. One is called an open cell and the other is called a closed cell. Open cell foam consists of cells that are not completely encapsulated, being purposely left open. Leaving them open makes the foam softer and more flexible when it is sprayed into the areas of your home. Closed cell foam consists of cells that are completely closed. When you enlist our help to insulate your home or business, we will advise you on whether it’s best to use open cell foam or closed cell foam for this specific project.
BENEFITS OF USING SPRAY FOAM INSULATION IN LEXINGTON
There are a number of benefits of using spray foam when insulating your building. Some of the most common benefits are as follows:
Using spray foam on a building’s roof can improve strength and durability, even in high winds.
Spray foam helps create a strong bond on a roof to protect against water seepage
It’s easier to insulate hard to reach areas like crawlspaces and attics, as it can expand up to 30 times its original volume
Spray foam insulation also has a high R-value. This is a rating that generally refers to the amount of time it takes heat to radiate through a specific material. Regardless of where it’s used, spray foam insulation has one of the highest R-values compared to any other type of insulation. This means it is the ideal choice for most applications
