Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation for the Texas Heat!
Spray foam Insulation is perfect for the Texas heat because it helps keep the cool in and the heat out. Benefits include better filling of gaps and voids and more efficient restriction of air-flow compared to fiberglass insulation. Areas that have wiring, plumbing and open floor webs are much more effectively filled than batt or loose fill insulation. Foam insulation has the highest R-value or the ability to slow down thermal flow. Spray foam insulation has as much as two times the R-value of blown fiberglass insulation. Since the thermal air-flow is reduced, cool air will stay inside and the hot, Texas air will stay outside!
Spray foam insulation is much better than other types of insulation because it provides a much more comprehensive covering. It is a more uniform and consistent heat barrier compared to fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Foam insulation’s superior sealing ability enables the attic to be air conditioned providing further relief no matter where you are in your home! A spray foam insulated roof also minimizes air leaks in the attic reducing heat transfer and air duct leaks. Spray foam insulation also reduces all types of heat transfer, radiant, convective and conductive, resulting in more efficient and less costly air conditioning!
Spray foam insulation also reduces air conditioning costs. On average, structures with spray foam insulation cut their air conditioning costs by 1/3 to 1/2. Compared to other types of insulation, structures with foam insulation require smaller air conditioning units. This means less costly air conditioning unit purchases, installation and operation costs.
