If you are planning to install new insulation at your home, you may already have discovered that there are many different insulation types to choose from, and all of them have their pros and cons. The good news is that you no longer have to settle for the standard fiberglass batt insulation when you truly want to improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort from roof to foundation.
One insulation type that can create a big impact on your home without breaking the bank is closed-cell spray foam insulation. Here are four advantages of choosing this insulation type:
- Density – Compared to some other standard insulation materials, closed-cell spray foam insulation is denser, and therefore insulates better throughout your home.
- R-Value – The R-value of insulation is its resistance to heat flow. This is an important factor to consider when choosing your insulation materials. Closed call spray foam has a high R-value, and therefore offers an added layer of protection.
- Protection – Speaking of protection, closed-cell spray foam insulation is ideal for many different areas of your home, from the attic to your wall joists and even in the small, hard-to-reach areas, like around your attic door or in tight corners of your basement.
- Longevity – Ultimately, closed-cell spray foam insulation offers advantages in the immediate future, as well as for the long term for your home. While other insulation materials may lose their effectiveness over time, you can rest assured that your closed-cell spray foam choice will be a good investment for many years to come.
