What is Spray Foam Insulation?

There are so many types of insulation out there that can help make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable. Spray foam insulation is a great product that can do so much for your home and its overall energy efficiency. Knowing what type of insulation is going to work for you can make a huge difference. 

What is Spray Insulation?

Spray foam insulation is made of two different types of resin, isocyanate and polyol resin that has been made into foam. It is then pumped out through a sprayer that is designed specifically for the foam so that it flows properly and smoothly. 

This type of insulation works to help reduce heat transfer, prevent heat loss, and to help keep your home at a steady temperature so that you can prevent high energy bills during months when the temperatures fluctuate greatly. 

Where is Spray Foam Insulation Used?

 Spray insulation is a wonderful thing because it can be used anywhere in the home. It can be used between drywall, it can be used in attic spaces, it can be used nearly anywhere. Since it is not large like fiberglass insulation, it can be sprayed in a specific area then it will expand to fit the area where it was sprayed. 

This type of insulation is going to be great if you have strangely shaped spaces, if you have very tight spaces, or if you have areas that are going to be hard to insulate with traditional fiberglass insulation. This type of insulation is also very durable, it is less likely to house animals and rodents, and it is less likely to break up and get into vents and your air conditioning system. Spray insulation is great for new homes and existing homes as it is easy to have placed.
