Almost anyone who has seen spray foam insulation being installed in a new construction home or pole barn will know what it looks like. It’s a large truck with a trailer where the crew does their work. The rig has all the technology needed to ensure the insulation is mixed and sprayed correctly, and that it’s the right temperature for the project. The rig also keeps track of the temperatures of the studs, attic floor and wall cavities to ensure the spray foam is the correct density for the job.URL: https://newgenerationsprayfoam.com
Is it a good idea to spray foam insulation?
Closed-cell spray foam is an effective air barrier, creating a custom airtight envelope within the building structure. It stops heat from escaping the house during the winter and keeps hot air inside during the summer. It will reduce your energy costs by preventing air leakage that contributes to 40 percent of the cost of heating and cooling.
Spray foam insulation is also a great moisture barrier, stopping air from passing through the walls and attic to areas like crawl spaces and basements. That will help prevent moisture damage, and keep places like attics and basements from becoming damp, humid environments that can lead to wood rot and mold.
One thing to consider with spray foam is that it’s toxic while curing, emitting a gas that can cause blurred vision and breathing issues. It can also trigger chemical bronchitis in people with asthma and other respiratory conditions. That’s why it’s important to use a respirator, goggles and gloves when working with spray foam. It isn’t toxic once cured though, and the new generation eco friendly spray foams use blowing agents that are free of CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs, meaning they don’t add to climate change.
