One of our most commonly asked questions here at AppleBlossom Energy is what type of insulation is right for a homeowner. While the answer to this question varies quite a bit depending upon the type of home and area where the insulation needs to be applied, spray foam insulation is a great option for most places. If you are thinking of adding insulation for your home, here are a few reasons to consider spray foam insulation.
- Spray foam is a great insulator. While there are many insulation materials out there with a poor R-value, spray foam is one of the better insulation materials out there. Many offer you an R-value per inch of R-6, the highest available ranking. This means that you can feel confident in your choice to go with spray foam insulation.
- Spray foam insulation keeps out moisture and pests. Spray foam insulation creates a great seal between studs, making it air and watertight. This is just one of the reasons why spray foam insulation is is great for sealing leaks as an air barrier. Additionally, pests do not try to eat it and cannot burrow into it, making it effective against pests as well.
- Spray foam insulation is good for different areas of the home. When you are looking at adding insulation to a new home or an existing one, spray foam insulation can often work in different spaces. We will help educate you on where this insulation works best for your home.
