As you are well aware, it is important for homeowners to keep their homes cool without having to run their AC unit at all times, running up their monthly energy bills. That’s where high quality, properly installed closed cell spray foam insulation comes in! How it all works:

In order to keep a home cool in the summer months it is usually necessary to either use a window air conditioning unit or central air unit. These machines are the only thing that create cold air, as every other appliance radiates heat. This is where spray foam insulation plays its part. Heat transfer and air flow both contribute to the comfort and energy efficiency of a home. With closed cell spray foam insulation you create a barrier to keep cool air from escaping and hot air from getting in. Spray foam insulation completely fill the cavities, including any gaps and crevices in your roof and walls stopping any air leakage and movement.

While other types of insulation are great at this, closed cell spray foam insulation is simply the best as it provides both heat resistance and an air seal. It’s really able to get into the nooks and crannies of the home.

With closed cell spray foam insulation your air conditioner also won’t need to run constantly in an effort to maintain a constant temperature. This will save you money in the long run on your monthly energy bills as well as on maintenance for your AC unit.

In conclusion, closed cell spray foam insulation is a smart choice year round because it’s great at creating an air seal in your home and creating a barrier that will hold in those comfortable temperatures.

As you can see, there are many reasons closed cell spray foam insulation can benefit you and your family this summer!
