Spray Foam Attic Insulation
Undoubtedly, the area of your house which is subject to the most extreme temperatures all year round is your attic. Whether it is scorching heat or freezing cold, you cannot prevent the effects that outside weather has on your house without adequate attic insulation.
At Synergy Insulation, we work with the best and have expert contractors on hand to help you keep extreme weather out of your comfortable home.
Why Do You Need To Insulate The Attic?
Attic insulation is one of the most effective methods to reduce the penetration of extreme temperatures into the living space. The heat that falls on the shingles of the roof causes a serious rise in the temperature of the enclosed attic space. In turn, this transferred heat is apt to seep into the rest of the dwelling through unsealed cracks and holes. Similar it is with cold winter temperatures which force the shivering home dwellers to increase their use of the heating system to escape the biting cold. In either case, the result is increased energy and financial output.
Since the effects of the outside weather seep into the living space primarily through the attic, it is vital to have maximum insulation and complete sealing to reduce the impact that outside temperature (hot or cold) has within the living space. In fact, when done properly, spray foam can reduce the effect of extreme outside temperatures by about 40% of their original intensity thus reducing the need for constant and excessive use of heating and cooling systems all year round.
Moreover, spray foam insulated attics do not allow nearly as much conditioned air to leak out of the house as do traditional materials. This is known as conservation of energy; preventing the loss of heat and cooling generated by the HVAC systems, from the house lowers overall energy and financial waste. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, attics insulated with spray foam also prevent moisture from seeping into the attic which can lead to unseen yet harmful mold and premature structural damage.

What Is Attic Spray Foam Insulation?
Insulating your attic with spray foam is a modern technique which tends to be more effective than the traditional insulation methods such as traditional fiberglass batting or blown fiberglass. There are two ways to protect your attic space (and thus the rest of your home). One involves the process of insulating the floor of the attic, while leaving the rest of the gable vented. It is a common method but is not very effective because it still allows the attic space itself to become either super-heated or super-cooled from climate exposure on the roof.
The most effective way to make your indoor environment more comfortable and protected from outside infiltration opt for complete spray foam insulation of the attic. This includes installation on the underside of the roof, along with the joist, soffit and rim areas. The walls of the gable are also sprayed, thus ensuring complete sealing of the attic and complete protection from the outside world including moisture, pollen, pests and weather.
Better insulation means lower energy costs and a more comfortable living environment. Lowering your energy consumption is also good for the planet, and since our product is non-toxic it is a completely green or Eco-friendly option. Additionally, spray foam provides a complete thermal and moisture barrier so you will also enjoy reduced incidents of mold, mildew, pollen, pollutants, allergens, rodents, insects and other pests and irritants infiltrating your home.
