There are many insulation options and systems that can be used in your home. While traditional loose insulation is commonly found in homes and businesses, spray foam insulation is capable of providing significantly better performance in a variety of situations.
Spray Foam Insulation Can Be Used In Areas With Electrical Wiring
An issue that buildings will often have is a lack of sufficient insulation in the areas where electrical wiring is located. This wiring can be difficult to insulate with traditional products. As a result, these areas can be a weak area for the building in terms of energy efficiency. Spray foam insulation can be well suited to protecting these areas. This is due to the ability of the spray foam to expand and fill the space where it is applied. In fact, this feature can allow the spray foam to avoid the small gaps and crevices that traditional insulation may leave behind in these areas, which could significantly lower the energy efficiency of the building.
The Application Of Spray Foam Can Require Less Demolition Of Interior Walls
The ability of spray foam to expand to fill fairly large spaces can be a factor that individuals may not fully appreciate at first. Yet, this is a capability that will allow a person to upgrade their insulation while minimizing the amount of demolition work that will have to be done to the interior walls. With traditional loose insulation products, the entire section of drywall may have to be removed so that the insulation can be placed behind it. In contrast, spray foam can be applied to these areas by simply drilling several small holes and using the injection nozzle to apply the spray foam to these areas.
Spray Foam Insulation Will Not Produce Particularly Powerful Smells
Many of the products and upgrades that a homeowner will need to use for their building can leave behind powerful fumes and smells that may linger in the area where the work was completed. These odors can make the interior a less pleasant place to be, and they may even be strong enough to force a homeowner and their family to vacate the area. Luckily, this is not typically a major problem for spray foam insulation products. These products will generally produce mild, minimal odors, and these smells will largely be contained by the walls where the insulation was applied. These benefits can make it much easier for a homeowner to disperse any odors or fumes that may be leftover from this work.
