Where Can Spray Foam Insulation Be Installed?Spray Foam News
Spray foam insulation is exceptionally beneficial for your home, the environment and your lifestyle. With the ability to shrink your carbon footprint, lessen your energy bills and reduce heat loss, it is the number one insulation choice by homeowners today. Another great benefit of foam insulation is that it is incredibly versatile across all areas of your home.
Where Can I Install Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is able to be installed almost anywhere in the home, including the roof, loft and even floors and walls.
At Mass Foam Systems, our residential Icynene® spray foam services only include roof and loft insulation, although there are alternative floor and cavity wall options. These are the two most likely areas of the home where indoor heat can escape, and outdoor air can pass through. Therefore, foam insulation is guaranteed to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer!
· Roof Spray Foam Insulation
There is nothing worse than the frustration of turning up your heating system, yet your home does not feel warm. If that sounds familiar to you, it might mean your insulation is not as effective as it should be. As the majority of heat tends to escape through the roof, roof foam insulation is a key player in ensuring your home stays at a constant temperature.
Spray foam insulation expands to create an airtight seal in your roof, stopping heat from escaping and outside air from entering. It can also help to prevent freezing pipes and reduce mould growth.
· Loft Foam Insulation
As with your roof, spray foam insulation can also help to improve the energy efficiency of your loft. Whilst lofts are used for storage, they are often converted into liveable spaces. This means effective insulation is important to create safe, comfortable living conditions. Lofts with foam insulation have cleaner air due to the prevention of pollutants and allergens entering from outside.
Insulation can also be installed in the room in your roof.
· Floor and Cavity Wall Insulation
Whilst we do not offer floor or cavity wall insulation at Mass Foam Systems, it does have its benefits in certain homes. For example, using spray foam insulation underneath flooring can seal spaces underneath your flooring and increase its warmth. The same can be done for cavity walls, with spray foam acting as a barrier between the inner and outer wall to keep heat in.
