Understanding The Advantages of Spray Foam Compared to Traditional Insulation

The choice to replace the existing insulation in your home isn’t always straightforward. You may have financial constraints, or building-related constraints that may impact your final decision about what type and brand of insulation you end up choosing. As well, your own personal experience (and bias) will influence your choice.

If you’ve never used foam insulation like Icynene before, you may be wondering, how does spray foam insulation compare to traditional insulation?  There are several advantages that spray foam can offer:

Air Sealing – Spray foam expands within seconds of application to fill all cavities, which helps to create an effective air seal in your home. This reduces the risk of air leaks and drafts, as well as monthly heating and cooling bills.

Consistent Performance – Over time, gaps in traditional insulation can lead to drafts and air leaks. On the other hand, spray foam like Icynene will maintain its shape and performance year over year, helping to reduce the risk of air loss via gaps.

Not Considered a Food Source For Pests or Mold –Icynene spray foam insulation is not considered a food source for mold or critters ,  reducing the likelihood of anything besides you and your family living in and enjoying your home.

And if you’re asking yourself, “Where can I use spray foam insulation?” you should find a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, to walk you through that answer and any others you may have about spray foam insulation.
