While thermal protection is important in keeping your home comfortable, adding the benefit of an air seal complements your insulation efforts for complete protection. Spray foam insulation not only offers needed thermal protection, but also provides a tight seal that does not allow air leaks, which can account for up to 40% of a building’s energy loss. RWS Insulation Services is a local spray foam installer for residential applications.
Areas that leak air:
- Crawlspaces and basements
- Around windows and doors
- Around electrical outlets
- Around plumbing vents
- Wire holes
- Recessed lighting
How Spray Foam Insulation Works:
Spray foam insulation is sprayed on as a liquid and quickly expands to completely fill the space between cavities. This method/material will fill in the spaces that can cause a home to lose energy such as around can lights which can leak conditioned air into an unconditioned attic.
