Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam is a great insulating option for Syracuse, NY homeowners who are building or fully remodeling. There are many different types of spray foam available, including closed cell (high density), open cell (low density), and even green foam, which is a low density spray foam made from renewable or recycled content. While each of these types of foam is made for a variety of different insulating applications, they all carry similar benefits for the homeowner.
High R-Value: R-value indicates insulation’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the material’s R-value, the greater its insulating effectiveness.
Draft Elimination: Spray foam keeps the cold (or hot) air outside, which keeps your home warmer (or cooler) and keeps your home comfort system from running unnecessarily.
Energy Savings: You won’t have to worry about your treated air escaping outside, which will help your home comfort system run more efficiently – which can help you save money.
Moisture Barrier: Spray foam defends against conditions causing condensation and mold. And, it protects from interior and exterior water.
Build Enhancer: Spray foam insulation provides an added level of strength to your build – two to three times!
Improved IAQ: If you want to improve your home’s indoor air quality, spray foam insulation is an ideal choice. It keeps pollen, dust and pollution out of your home, and discourages mold and mildew growth.
Cellulose insulation is plant-based insulating material used in wall and roof cavities to separate the inside and outside of your Syracuse, NY home thermally and acoustically. That means it keeps the heat and noise inside the house! Cellulose provides a thermal performance that compares favorably to other types of insulation, with an R-Value of 3.8 per inch. It fits well around items in walls like pipes and wiring, leaving few air pockets that can reduce the overall efficiency of the wall. Here are a few additional benefits of using cellulose insulation:
Safety Value: Up to 85% recycled paper waste material with remaining percent made of boric (fire retardant) treatment that provides a Class-1 fire rating, making it a safe choice.
No Harmful Additives: Does not contain formaldehyde.
Fiberglass Free: Since there are no glass fibers, cellulose does not make you itch.
Excellent Sound Barrier: Provides exceptional sound reduction. Since it is three times the density of fiberglass, it helps deaden the sound traveling through the walls and ceilings.
