Spray foam insulation, which is applied in liquid form (it sort of resembles wet paint), is sprayed into wall cavities. It dries within seconds and expands into a thick foam that snugly fills the designated space, penetrating the small crevices and creating a tight seal. This makes your home less susceptible to air leaks and more energy-efficient. You can install spray foam insulation anywhere in your home—attic, basement, walls, around piping and ductwork, etc.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation Installation
Because of the total coverage and tight seal it creates, spray foam insulation is ideal for the many small crevices, gaps, and cracks located behind your walls. It can actually help reduce air leakage in your home. Spray foam insulation can also:
- Help reduce your energy bills and save you money
- Make your home more comfortable year round
- Muffle outside noises (and noises between different rooms and levels inside)
- Help improve the overall efficiency of your AC
- Prevent mold growth (it doesn’t absorb water)
- Reduce the amount of pollen, dust, and other small debris in your home
- Help increase your home’s resale value—homebuyers highly value energy efficiency
- Last for years—it does not shrink or settle after it’s installed
Spray foam insulation is a good choice if you want to make your home in Chicago more energy-efficient and comfortable no matter what the season is. It can be installed not only in your walls, but also in your attic, basement, and any crawl spaces.
Our insulation company serving Chicago uses only high-quality spray foam—and we will install it correctly so you can maximize energy efficiency and comfort. Wherever you need to insulate your home or building, spray foam insulation installed by ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation is a good solution.
Spray Foam & Air Leakage
Air leaks can undermine the performance of your insulation, and as mentioned, spray foam insulation can help eliminate air leaks. Filling hard-to-reach places, voids, and cracks, it will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. You can even use spray foam insulation between floor joists, as well as around wiring, piping, and ductwork.
This doesn’t mean you should dismiss the idea of sealing your home—quite the opposite. Sealing is just as important as insulation installation if you want a completely energy-efficient and comfortable house. A home with hidden air leaks, that is insulated but not sealed, isn’t going to be as energy-efficient as it could be. It will actually end up costing you a lot more money!
