Your Home Can Stay Warm With Cathedral Ceilings

Having cathedral ceilings in your home can make you the envy of your neighbors; they are a beautiful architectural accent for any home, adding a feeling of space and airiness to your rooms. They do, however come with one potential drawback: a tendency to create a scenario where air leakage is more likely to happen in your home.

Insulating cathedral ceilings is slightly more complex than a typical flat ceiling that has an attic above it. This is due to the fact that the attic allows for the traditional insulation to be installed flat on the attic’s floor to provide thermal insulating value. By eliminating the attic entirely, traditional insulation needs to be installed in the cathedral ceiling cavities, which are on an angle. The angles of a cathedral ceiling means there is less space to insulate with traditional materials and may not stay in place, leading to gaps in coverage.. 

The ideal cathedral ceiling insulation is spray foam insulation like Icynene, which is ideal for narrow, oddly shaped or uniquely angled spaces. Icynene spray foam expands to 100 times its original size, within seconds of being applied, to fill small gaps and corners that traditional insulation can’t reach or fill. The result is a ceiling that is effectively air sealed, helping to reduce air loss and drafts which can be common with cathedral ceilings. Your home will be as cozy and comfortable as ever, thanks to the help of Icynene.

Find a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area to help you discover more reasons to choose Icynene.
