Spray Foam Insulation in Panama CitySpray Foam Insulation in Panama City

When you invest in spray foam insulation, the savings on your energy costs will pay for it in just a few months. In addition, spray insulation is also a great way to cut down on drafts and noise pollution, as well as prevent air leakage. Air leakage accounts for up to 40 percent of the cost to heat and cool a home.

In recent years, the variety and quality of spray foam has greatly improved. Many of the newer spray foams are formulated to expand very little. This was done due to complaints that the older types of spray foam were expanding so much that they would distort vinyl windows and other items inside a home.

Energy Efficiency Improvements with Spray Foam Insulation

There are two types of spray foam insulation: open and closed cell. Open cell spray foam has cells that aren’t completely encapsulated, whereas closed-cell spray foam is pressed together and offers better insulating properties. Closed-cell foam also provides an air and vapor barrier in one, so homeowners don’t have to apply a separate vapor barrier after the foam dries.

When spray foam is applied on site, it forms a seal over all of the nooks and crannies of the structure. It’s especially effective in hard-to-reach areas and difficult-to-insulate structures, such as a pole barn or domed roof. It’s also a good choice for new construction homes and commercial buildings.

Besides a spray foam insulation install, a contractor may also recommend installing a radiant barrier in your attic. This will help reduce heat gain in the blazing Florida summers and keep you more comfortable.
