Conventional insulation, such as fiberglass batt insulation, provides a poor barrier against air leakage since it is unlikely to fill in all cracks and seams. When professionally applied by a certified Spray Foam Insulation Ottawa installer, spray foam insulation expands to seal virtually all spaces where air may escape or enter a structure. Drafts are stopped from coming in and air leaking out is eliminated! Therefore, the amount of energy needed to maintain a preferred indoor temperature is greatly reduced, resulting in energy savings. Medium density spray foam insulation acts as an insulation, air barrier and vapour barrier, all in one application.
