What do we use?
The easiest and most reliable method of air sealing your home to limit the intrusion of airborne allergens is to install spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation expands upon contact to fit the available space, and it fills in any cracks, gaps, and holes in the cavity to create an airtight seal that other insulations can’t compete with.
Spray foam insulation is applied by spraying it directly into the space. Once applied, it expands to fill the space and seal any leaks to the outside, and within 24 hours, it will be done expanding and you’ll have an airtight home. There may be a slight odor, but this also usually dissipates within a day or two.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of spray foam insulation go beyond air sealing your home. This insulation is the highest quality available in the industry, which is why it’s our most preferred insulation option, so it offers a myriad of advantages that other insulation options don’t. Since the material is resistant to water, it doesn’t make a suitable environment for mold and can actually be used to waterproof a space. Pests and animals won’t be attracted to it, either, because there’s no moisture or edible value.
One of the biggest benefits of spray foam insulation, however, is the impact it will have on your home’s heating and cooling. Air sealing a home prevents the outside elements from having as much of an impact on the inside temperature, and the fact that it eliminates any air leaks and keeps all of your heat or AC inside your house will drastically affect your energy bills and usage. You home’s temperature will be easier to regulate, often resulting in the ability to switch to smaller heaters and AC units, and your energy bill will be significantly less than before, sometimes as much as 50% less.
Is it possible to seal my home too tight?
The answer we like to give to this question is that the key is to seal tight and ventilate right. Using the appropriate exhaust fans and heat and energy recovery ventilators, as well as having a tight and secure building envelope, can allow fresh, clean air to move through your home while keeping outside air out. Ensuring you control air leakages by making attic and wall assemblies tight will not only improve the benefits of air sealing, but it will also help keep out noise and dust pollution from outside while keeping the insulation free of moisture.
