Spray Foam Insulation Champaign, Illinois
When the temperature drops outside, does your utility bill skyrocket? If so, your insulation could be the problem. Certain types of insulation can settle over time, losing up to 20% of the R-value effectiveness. Of course, you can fix it by having new insulation installed. But what is the right insulation for your home or office? In Champaign, the Department of Energy recommends an R-Value of R-49 or higher.
R-value is a measurement of how well a barrier can resist the flow of heat from one place to another; in this case, from outside your home to inside your home. Of course, the higher the R-value rating, the better is resists heat transfer.
So, what is the best insulation for the Champaign area?
Spray foam insulation.
Spray has one of the highest R-value ratings of all the different types of insulation barriers. Plus, it can easily achieve an R-49 rating or higher.
Spray foam can generally be installed faster than other insulations. And depending on the type of insulation, you can even soundproof your room and stop dust and allergens from creeping in. Not to mention, you want have to deal with settling problems (which could be your problem right now).
Open-cell and Closed-cell Foam Insulation
Yes, in fact, there are two types of spray foam insulation; open cell foam and closed cell foam. And there are some differences between them. Below is a quick breakdown of the differences:
In most cases, closed cell foam in the best option. It has a higher R-value than open cell foam insulation and it is strong (bump resistant). For attic insulation installations, closed cell foam is almost always the go to insulation. But there are cases where closed cell foam insulation is the better option. Either way, both insulation options are the best for your Champaign, IL home or office. Consult with your insulation service provider to determine what is the best option for you.
Spray Foam Insulation Cost
Spray foam insulation tends to be more costly than other insulation options such as cellulose, batten, board, and fiberglass, but it works much more effectively and will last longer.

And while the higher cost may initially turn you off, you have to remember that it will save you more on your utilities than before and it will last longer than your currently failing insulation.
