Infographic: How spray foam insulation keeps you cool
With summer upon us, insulation is critical to keeping your expensive air-conditioned air from leaking out and zapping a family's energy budget.
Spray foam insulation seals drafts, and investing in high-performance insulation could cut home cooling costs by as much as 20 percent, according to Energy Star. Once applied, spray foam insulation expands 100 times its size to create an impermeable envelope.
As a result, cold air stays inside longer and the hot outdoors is kept at bay. The chart below, from leading spray foam insulation producer Icynene, illustrates the product’s impact on a building.
