When attic insulation is applied at the proper thickness, it can create a tight, energy-efficient air seal, minimizing heat loss and cold spots in homes and buildings. The ideal insulation thickness is based on climate, energy efficiency goals, and local building codes. The R-value of the spray foam used is also important; a higher R-value indicates a more effective thermal performance.

Environmental Impact of Advanced Seal Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam acts as both insulation and an air barrier, closing the nooks and crannies that allow for air to escape and drive up monthly energy bills. The process is fast, economical, and environmentally friendly.

Whether you want to DIY or hire a professional, it’s up to your skill set and budget. Homeowners can save money by purchasing a spray foam insulation kit that includes the necessary materials and application equipment. The kits are available at most home improvement stores, and they include detailed instruction sheets to help you achieve consistent coverage and the correct expansion of the spray foam.

Meritage recommends using open-cell spray foam, which bonds to the structure of a home and creates an effective vapor barrier, unlike traditional fiberglass batts that need a separate vapor barrier. A properly functioning spray foam insulation installation can reduce the need for homeowners to use space heaters, box fans, and ceiling fans in the winter and help prevent over-working HVAC systems in the summer. It can even increase the number of days your home doesn’t need to be turned on at all, reducing your carbon footprint and saving money on electricity bills.
