Mother's Day and Insulation: Treat Your Family Right This Summer
INJECTION FOAM INSULATION
When most people think of insulation, they think about the fluffy pink stuff that rolls out to fit between wall studs and floor joists. That's your grandmother's insulation.Today's insulation has improved in many ways. Better installation and higher R-values make injection foam insulation a go-to choice for homeowners upgrading their home insulation. Here's how it works:
INSTALLATIONThe injection foam is pumped into the structure as a liquid. The pressure of the pump forces the liquid foam insulation to get around electrical outlets, behind pipes and wires, and into crevices. It provides comprehensive access to all of the spaces in your home's walls, effectively creating an airtight seal and hardening within seconds. Other insulation types, like the pink batts, require very careful installation to properly cut the insulation to fit in awkward spaces and to avoid gaps that let heat into the home in summer.
PERFORMANCEInjection foam insulation provides a superior R-value rating over other commonly used insulation types like cellulose, fiberglass and rockwool. It outperforms these insulations with a 35 percent higher R-value, as it's rated R-5.1 at 72 degrees per inch. It gets even better performance in colder weather. In addition, the material completely fills in the structure and doesn't gap, delivering a higher efficiency.
Give your loved one the perfect Mother's Day gift this year. With a better picture of how newer insulation works, ditch the pink stuff and choose injection foam insulation. For more information about insulating your home, contact USA Insulation today!
