What is Spray Foam Insulation and Why is it useful?
Spray foam insulation is a type of insulation made from polyurethane foam. It is applied as a liquid and expands to fill gaps, crevices, and other hard-to-reach areas in your walls, ceilings, and floors. Once applied, insulation creates a seamless, airtight barrier that helps prevent heat transfer, keeping your home or business comfortable year-round.
Spray foam is becoming increasingly popular in Toronto and throughout Ontario for several reasons, including:
- Improved energy efficiency provides an excellent thermal barrier, which can help reduce heat loss and gain through your walls, ceilings, and floors. This translates to lower energy bills, as your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature.
- Enhanced comfort: By creating an airtight seal, helps eliminate drafts, cold spots, and hot spots, making your home or business more comfortable year-round.
- Increased durability: it is highly resistant to moisture and mold, which means it can help protect your walls, ceilings, and floors from water damage and other issues that can compromise their structural integrity.
