Spray Foam for Home Insulation

Closed Cell Foam Insulation

Van Island Insulation offers spray foam insulation as an option including choices for closed cells weighing 2 lb and open cells weighing 12 lb for home insulation.

These forms of insulation limit mold formation and produce a continuous barrier, resulting in a more pleasant living environment.

Insulation and an air/vapor barrier in one, the two-pound closed-cell foam pack is an excellent choice for use on outside surfaces and ducting.

On the other hand, the open-cell foam weighing half a pound is excellent at acting as an air barrier and dampening sound transmission, but it does not serve as a vapor barrier.

Only environmentally friendly spray foams derived from renewable resources and have a minimal potential for global warming are utilized.

Blown In Insulation

Insulation made of cellulose is available for use in roof and attic areas. This insulation is constructed of recycled paper materials and has additives that resist fire and pests. The densely packed cellulose approach eliminates cold spots and circulation of air while simultaneously filling voids via internal holes. To ensure a smooth installation, the business drills and then fill any necessary holes.

The narrow cavity pour foam insulation solution is beneficial for double brick and brick/block wall houses that do not have insulated spaces in between the bricks. This closed-cell foam weighs 2 pounds and has a high insulating value in addition to air barrier features and the ability to inhibit mold growth. It is inserted via internal holes.

Frequently Asked Questions for home Insulation

What are the different types of home insulation?

Insulation for homes may be made of various materials, including fiberglass, cellulose, spray foam, rigid foam, blown-in insulation, and radiant barriers. Each kind comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks, and the one most appropriate for a certain residence is determined by the requirements of the property as well as its geographical setting.

How does insulation improve energy efficiency in a home?

Insulation performs the function of a barrier, preventing heat flow from inside the house to the outside. Insulation helps to manage the temperature within a building by limiting heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. This makes the facility more pleasant and reduces the effort required from the heating and cooling systems.

Can insulation be installed in an existing home?

Insulation may be added to a house even if it was built decades ago. Increasing the amount of insulation in your attic, walls, floors, and crawl spaces is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase your home’s energy efficiency. You may accomplish this by retrofitting insulation.

What is the life span of insulation?

The longevity of insulation may be affected by both the kind of insulation and how it is put. On the other hand, the lifetime of the vast majority of insulating materials is at least 20 years.

Can insulation help to reduce noise pollution in a home?

Insulation may play a role in lowering the noise pollution in a house by serving as a barrier that stops sound from entering or leaving the structure. It has been shown that some kinds of insulation, such as fiberglass or spray foam, are especially good at reducing noise pollution.

What are the environmental benefits of insulation?

Insulation helps lower the energy required to heat and cool a home, which in turn helps to minimize the number of emissions of greenhouse gases. In addition, certain forms of insulation, such as cellulose, are created from recycled materials and may also be recycled when they have served their intended purpose.
