Spray Foam Insulation Saves on Electric Bills - Worcester, MA

Spray foam insulation provides many benefits, including lower energy costs and it reduces air infiltration into your home, making it more comfortable year round.

Spray foam insulation can be used for insulating walls and attics and on roofs. It air seals around walls, roofs, corners and on other contoured surfaces. Using spray foam insulation makes your home more comfortable by preventing drafts and helps better control indoor temperature.

The insulation resists heat transfer extremely well, helping keep the home cool during summer and warm in winter. One of spray foam insulation’s greatest benefits is its air-sealing ability blocking air infiltration without cutting insulation. The higher the R-value, and the greater the resistance to air movement, the higher the thermal performance of the insulation system.

Spray foam insulation is most effective at keeping outside air from coming into a house by sealing cracks, seams and joints, which means less energy is needed to heat and cool the home. It is more than just insulation. It acts as a moisture barrier, preventing condensation and water intrusion.

Sealing gaps with spray foam insulation provides a barrier against exterior pollen and dust, which will improve indoor air quality which is helpful in protecting allergy sufferers. Spray foam insulation also insulates against sound. 

When having SPF installed, work with a professional contractor who can educate you on the installation process. For more information contact Custom Insulation.
