You’ve heard that spray foam insulation is energy efficient. If you’ve been shopping for a spray foam insulation contractor in Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas or Texas, you know that there are benefits. Let’s get specific. The “why” is complex, but one simple answer is the minimization of thermal bridges. Traditional insulation needs to attached to the roof with brackets, causing a “thermal bridge”. Since spray foam attaches directly to the roof, this problem is virtually eliminated.
But what does that even mean?
According to WhySprayFoam.org:
“As much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes and air leaks—which can all be prevented—can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste.
Spray foam offers a solution: it performs as both insulation and an air sealant, or air barrier, closing those nooks and crannies that let air escape and add dollars to monthly energy bills. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program estimates that by adding insulation and sealing air leaks, you could save up to 20% on your monthly energy bills.1
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 56% of the energy used in a home goes to heating and cooling.2 Your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system has a big effect on your utility bills and your energy consumption. Maintaining an optimal HVAC system can make your home more energy efficient. Spray foam insulation can help reduce the workload on your HVAC system thanks to its high R-value and effectiveness.3 In fact, with spray foam, HVAC sizing can be reduced as much as 35% without the loss of efficiency and comfort.4“
