Spray Polyurethane Foam Keeps It Cool
We often think of insulation helping to keep our houses warm in the winter. But it also plays a key role in maximizing cooling efficiency in warm climates or during the hottest months of the year. Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) in particular is an excellent insulator that can help keep the cool air in and the hot, humid air out.
The secret is SPF’s ability to expand into the smallest of spaces. Unlike other forms of insulation that may leave gaps, when properly applied SPF can seal off walls, ceilings, floors and roofs. Installing SPF in a new home or renovation may enable a smaller cooling system to be effective — even in a larger space.
In addition to keeping the cool air in, the SPF barrier also helps keep pollen, dust and insects out, which can be a big boon to those with allergies. SPF even provides some protection against outdoor noises, helping make your indoor space that much more enjoyable.
