Breakthroughs in home insulation have the potential to reduce air conditioning costs in hot cities like Houston, experts say. Plus a well-insulated attic offers added layers of protection against allergens that can trigger upper respiratory problems, particularly in children and the elderly.
“Fiberglass batting is limited in terms of its ability to seal off every nook, cranny and corner of a home,” says Synergy Spray Foam Insulation of Houston owner Michael Rodriguez. “Since it has to be installed in place by hand, it can be very difficult or even impossible to seal the hard-to-access areas. The bottom line outcome is that the home still leaks energy, regardless of how much traditional insulation the homeowner continues to buy and pay to have installed. Spray foam insulation, by contrast, reaches into even the smallest and hardest to detect areas – even those that are difficult to see without magnification.”
The effective R-Value – the technical measure of insulation effectiveness – is a critical component in the control of energy loss in both summer and winter. Because of its more adaptable qualities and easier, more penetrating method of installation,?spray foam insulation provides approximately twice the effective R-Value of fiberglass or cellulose insulation. After it is sprayed into place the foam expands up to a thousand-fold to create a thick, durable, impenetrable seal that is long-lasting. Another feature of spray foam is that it is exceptionally lightweight so that it does not put unwanted pressure on delicate ductwork.
A well-insulated home is also less expensive and easier to heat in wintertime, too, so the benefits to home budgets and in terms of environmentally responsible energy conservation are sustainable throughout the year in virtually any climate. Sealing air leaks solves as much as 70 percent of escaping energy, whereas inadequate insulation with conventional, inferior materials is responsible for up to 40 percent of wasted energy.
