Insulation is a word that’s tossed around in the HVAC industry a lot, but homeowners might have a different idea of what it is. We insulate a lot of things, from pipes to walls, and it’s important to know the difference between them. We even use insulation to keep ourselves warm during chilly days, hence why you might put on a thick jacket instead of just wearing a t-shirt when you go outside.
The truth is that insulation comes in many different forms, and it’s up to a professional to know which is going to be best suited for certain situations. For many homes in Lloydminster, spray foam insulation is going to do a better job of keeping heat inside than other types of insulation. Down below, we’re going to cover why spray foam insulation is so good at what it does, and why time and time again we choose it to help keep our customers’ homes energy efficient and comfortable.
The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is different from other types of insulation. Most insulation provided lays down thick sheets of insulation in your attic, or wraps the exterior of your home in insulation that eventually is covered by vinyl or the outer “envelope.” However, spray foam is different.
You see, a lot of homes have small nooks and crannies that can let drafts become prevalent. This isn’t really avoidable, since many of our customers have older, adorable homes that have been adapted and changed for decades. These little areas require insulation if they’re not in use, and spray foam insulation is the tool for the job. Spray foam insulation can cover the entire area of a given space, even if it’s hard to reach, because it’s sprayed in. This allows those small spaces, the areas between walls, and even certain crawlspaces to be filled in if they’re not used, and your home can be better insulated.
Some additional benefits of insulation include:
- Better energy efficiency. Insulation allows you to take some stress off of your heating or cooling system since it can have an easier time keeping your home comfortable.
- More comfortable home temperatures. An insulated home is going to keep the comfortable temperatures inside where you can feel them.
- Long-lasting solution. Insulation lasts for a very long time, as long as the area it’s installed in stays nice and dry. That shouldn’t be a problem in your home.
