If you want to be comfortable in your home in Lake Charles, it is very important that your home has proper thermal insulation. If you have noticed drafts in your home, or it just seems like your insulation is not containing heat the way it should, it may be time to consider replacing your current insulation with something that would be more effective.
The measure of an insulation’s ability to restrict the movement of heat is called its R-value, where the R stands for thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation is at stopping heat from moving through your walls, floors, or ceilings. When examining insulation options, the product with a high R-value is always preferable.
However, while it’s important, the R-value does not tell the whole story. Traditional forms of insulation can leave gaps that allow heat to move freely from one room to another or from indoors to outdoors. That’s where open cell spray foam comes in. It is an increasingly popular choice in Lake Charles because it is an expanding foam that fills the space available to it, so it does not leave the same kind of gaps other types of insulation can. It insulates as much as 50% better than traditional insulation, saving you money and energy for heating and cooling. It also effectively reduces noise, because it prevents sound waves from traveling through the air between floors or walls.
