Energy efficiency is in our everyday lives. Using the wrong types of insulation can lead to higher energy bills and even higher greenhouse gas emissions. Spray foam insulation, on the other hand, is more expensive but it does provide a cost-saving benefit due to its ability to insulate and seal your attic from excess moisture or heat transfer through your home’s walls. Spray foam insulation, for instance, is 30 percent more energy efficient than fiberglass insulation. This means that you can save up to $60 a year on your energy bills and at least 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions for a 1,800 square foot house.
Spray Foam Insulation Referring to the process of spraying polyurethane foam insulation into walls and attics, using a specialized spray gun. One of the most popular methods of insulating homes is to use polyurethane foam. Polyurethane is known for its energy efficiency and moisture absorption properties that make it easy to install in any home. The insulation can be used almost anywhere including walls, attics, and crawl spaces. Although this insulation is easy to install, it can be expensive when compared to other types of insulation.
