The Spray Foam Insulation you Choose Matters
The type of Green Earth Spray Foam you select can affect its performance, durability and cost. Different types of spray foam are formulated to provide specific R-Values in different applications. You can also find spray foam formulated to resist sagging and settling over time. Consider the environmental impact of each option, as well. If you are interested in choosing a green product, look for options that use low global warming potential (GWP) blowing agents, such as hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs).
DIY Tips and Tricks: A Homeowner’s Guide to Successfully Applying Spray Foam Insulation
In addition to energy efficiency, spray foam provides other benefits. For example, it reduces noise transfer between floors, walls and ceilings compared to uninsulated homes. It also creates an air seal, which helps stop drafts and moisture movement. And, it can prevent condensation between the inside and outside of a wall, which can lead to mold.
Whether you are building a new home or renovating an existing one, spray foam is a viable insulation solution for most areas of your house. It is ideal for insulating the attic, basement and crawl spaces. It can also be used in rim joists, wall cavities, door and window frames and other areas where traditional insulation is not available or is impractical.
In most cases, it is best to have a professional spray foam installer apply the insulation. This is because the chemicals in spray foam off-gas volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during the application and curing process. As a result, it is recommended that homeowners and occupants of the home stay away until the curing process is complete.
