Why You Need Attic Spray Foam Insulation
Most homeowners don’t realize that 40% of their home’s energy is lost due to air leaks. A good portion of these leaks occurs in the attic, which is un-insulated in some Columbia homes. Insulating your attic is an effective solution to plug leaks and control the indoor temperature. Spray foam insulation completely seals your attic against outside air.
The best way to determine if you have enough insulation is to measure its R-value or its resistance to heat transfer. It is recommended to have an R-value of at least 30. This means your attic should have at least 8.5 inches of insulation around the attic openings and flooring. This prevents wasted energy and lowers your monthly heating and cooling bills. Other benefits include:
- Deters mold and mildew growth as well as pest infestations
- Lasts for decades and does not lose its R-value
- Improves a roofs ability to withstand strong winds
Keeping your Columbia home or commercial building comfortable requires a lot of energy. Spray foam insulation will generate savings throughout its extended life. It can be installed in new builds or older homes. Upgrading the insulation to spray foam is one way to keep the outdoor air outside.
Spray foam insulation works by trapping tiny air pockets that slow the movement of heat out of a house in winter and into a house in summer. Its effectiveness at resisting this movement is called its R-value. The higher the value, the lower your energy bills.
Insulation Properly Installed by Professionals in Columbia
To achieve a good R-value, insulation must be installed correctly. A bad job can make matters worse. RT Construction has expertly trained technicians who know how to get the job done right.
We don’t rush through any insulation jobs. Each layer of spray foam insulation must cool off enough before the next lift is applied. We want to ensure a high-quality installation that translates into energy savings for you.
When building new homes or commercial buildings in Columbia, RT Construction must follow specific building codes. Spray foam insulation is used to address some of these building codes that pertain to energy efficiency.
