Most of us only have a very rudimentary knowledge about insulation. We know that we need it to keep our house warm in the winter and that it sometimes comes in pink, fluffy rolls. We might also know that there is something about R-values and heating efficiency in there, but that’s about it! Here at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces, we are your insulation experts and are ready to help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and would love to tell you all you need to know about insulation types, including spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation is entirely different than those pink rolls of insulation that are so common. Batt insulation comes into your home in rolls, whereas spray foam insulation starts out as a liquid and expands into a solid, rigid substance. Because spray foam insulation can adhere to surfaces and expand to fit a space, it makes a great option for small, tiny crevices that might be letting air in. It’s also a great choice of material for areas where traditional batt insulation might be very difficult to install, such as in a tight-fitting attic space or a crawlspace.
Aside from the tight seals that spray foam insulation can create in those little nooks and crannies, people love the option of spray foam insulation because it is resistant to water, air and even bugs. If you are looking for a way to make your home warm and comfortable, try looking into spray foam insulation from our team at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces today.
