Attic Insulation Appleton, WI
Attic insulation is considered the most important insulation in any structure. Appleton Spray Foam Insulation Pros uses the highest quality closed cell spray foam insulation available anywhere. Our closed-cell foam technology surpasses blown-in fiberglass and cellulose in retarding moisture, sealing drafts, and excellent R-value.
Why is Attic Insulation So Important?
As we know, most of the heat escapes from a structure through the attic. Attic insulation provides one of the best returns on investment a homeowner can make by conserving the conditioned air produced by the HVAC system. Energy prices continue to rise, yet the return on investment provided by under-performing insulation goes down. As a rule of thumb, most building codes require a minimum of R-38 insulation in an attic, yet some structures have less than R-10 if they are more than a few decades old. Depending on the design of the house, spray foam insulation can reduce energy costs exponentially, not to mention the environmentally friendly reduction of energy use and cost savings.
Some of our clients are not just looking for home insulation, but sound proof insulation as well. Installing spray foam insulation instead of standard batts or blown-in fiberglass often has a dramatic barrier effect on sound transmission into the home. Our spray foam insulation process can dampen unwanted outdoor noise that can easily penetrate under-insulated exterior walls and garages and cause a nuisance.
How Does Attic Insulation Work?
Technically, insulation resists the thermal transfer of heat from one place to another. In other words, insulation keeps cool air separate from warm air. Spray foam insulation traps little air pockets inside the material as it dries, to provide resistance to thermal transfer anywhere it is applied. Because spray foam insulation is self-adhering, it also sticks to nearly any surface, eliminating the need for mechanical fasteners. Just this one feature allows spray foam insulation to be installed vertically, not just horizontally like other insulation materials.
As experts in the field, Appleton Spray Foam Insulation technicians use spray foam to get into tiny spaces. Most attic insulation materials, like blown-in fiberglass and cellulose, simply lie on top of the drywall wherever they happen to fall. Allowing the insulation to fall into place can result in areas of the attic to remain uninsulated simply because the material cannot get into these areas. Spray foam insulation is technologically superior because it seeps into these areas and stops the drafts they cause.
Does Appleton Spray Foam Insulation Work in Vaulted or Cathedral Ceilings?
Yes. In fact, homes with vaulted or cathedral ceilings are one of the best applications for spray foam insulation. In the past, vaulted and cathedral style ceilings could really only be insulated with batts that were a hassle to install. The self-adhering nature of spray foam insulation allows the material to not only remain in place, but retain its shape, preventing any settling that might negatively affect the performance of the material. Appleton spray foam insulation can also be applied in various thicknesses, making it adaptable to nearly any roof design.
