Spray Foam Insulation FAQs part 1

Determining whether spray foam insulation like Icynene is the right choice for your home’s needs is something you should take your time with. You want to make sure all of your questions have been answered, no matter how simple or complex. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that homeowners have about spray foam:

Does spray foam insulation shrink?

Icynene spray foam insulation expands within seconds of being applied, and is able to maintain its form and performance year over year without shrinking. A qualified, experienced spray foam contractor will ensure that the product is applied at the correct ratio to ensure it holds its shape and performance over the long term.  Spray foam insulation that has shrunk is often an indication of a poor installation job or poor quality foam. You can avoid this problem by ensuring you’ve chosen to work with a licensed Icynene spray foam contractor who uses Icynene foam insulation.

Is spray foam insulation good to use in cold climates?

Spray foam like Icynene is ideal for use in cold climates because of its ability to create an air seal wherever it’s applied in your home. This can help reduce the potential for air leaks, which can cause cold spots and drafts in your home. The air seal can also help reduce monthly heating bills in your home.

Is spray foam insulation good to use in warm climates?

Equally, Icynene foam insulation is an ideal choice for homes in warmer climates as well, thanks to the same reasons. In this case, however, the air seal created helps prevent expensive conditioned air from escaping your home, as well as helping to reduce your monthly cooling bills and allowing your air conditioning unit to perform more optimally throughout the warmer months.
