The Benefit of Combined Spray, Rolled, and Foam Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 22, 2013

Spray foam insulation is the current popular trend, but how does it stand up compared to rolled insulation  or blown insulation for homes in and around Worcester MA? Chances are your home has a combination of both. This has been the Worcester Mass home insulation trend for years. over the last 80 years.

Spray foam insulation is a liquid applied insulation product that covers the vertical rafters and is applied to the attic ceiling. Immediately the spray foam insulation expands and fills any holes, sealing off the attic from the outside, thus making it into its own conditioned space. This eliminates the need to be ventilated. When the two types of insulation are combined, they create a sealed air space that saves energy. There are drawbacks. There is more space to heat and cool and your HVAC equipment might not be able to handle the upgrade.

With that said, the benefits of combining the different types of insulation far exceed the drawbacks. Even though your space needs to be conditioned, that doesn't necessarily mean pumping in air-conditioning, it may only mean dehumidifying the space. A simple dehumidifier can fix that problem and may not even be needed at all.
