Walls are the primary source of heat loss in a typical home, accounting for up to 40% of the home’s heat loss. Over time, you may spend hundreds or thousands of additional dollars on heating and cooling to compensate for a poorly insulated home. As such, it is important to invest in proper insulation for your walls in order to improve the energy efficiency of your home and enhance your overall comfort. For optimal insulation, there is no better choice than polyurethane spray foam. It is versatile, fast to install, and unmatched in thermal performance. Fort Mill Spray Foam Insulation offers residential and commercial wall insulation installation to help you mitigate heat loss and reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Insulation can help you maintain a more pleasant indoor environment in a number of ways. In addition to temperature regulation, spray foam insulation can also assist with the reduction of noise pollution in your home. Open cell spray foam, which is thicker and softer than closed cell spray foam, is especially effective at dampening sounds. It can completely fill the cavity within your wall to help stop sound transmission, reducing noise by up to 80% for a quieter and more peaceful home.
Not only does poor home insulation put a strain on natural resources and harm the environment, but it can also impact your heating and cooling costs and affect your day to day comfort. Sealing off air leaks and limiting the movement of air between the inside of your home and the outside is the best way to preserve the temperature of your home without relying heavily on your heating and cooling system. Both open cell and closed cell spray foam insulation are excellent at preventing heat loss and air infiltration.
Open Cell and Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation
There are a number of factors to consider when deciding between open cell and closed cell spray foam wall insulation. While open cell spray foam has a lower cost and is highly effective for soundproofing, it lacks water resistance. This means it is a poor choice for a damp basement or crawl space where moisture may be an issue. On the other hand, closed cell spray foam offers the best insulation for your home and serves as an effective vapor barrier, but it is much higher in cost. Our team can help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each option in order to help you determine the optimal solution for insulating your home.
