Desert Spray Foaming

Homeowners choose Desert Spray Foaming for a variety of reasons, most of which are based on the material’s advantages. If your Phoenix home experiences high energy costs all year long due to your house’s inability to maintain a constant temperature, the air seal created by spray foam may help. This type of insulation can keep your home cool in the summer and warm in winter, allowing you to turn down your thermostats, saving you money on monthly energy bills.

Understanding the Basics of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is sprayed into place, filling and sealing any holes or cracks that are in the building envelope. When it dries, the foam forms little pockets, or cells, that make it difficult for heat energy to pass through them. These little pockets can reach into small nooks and crannies that other types of insulation, like fiberglass batts, may miss.

Before installing spray foam, it’s important to prep the area. This involves cleaning the surface and ensuring it’s free of dust, dirt, debris and other contaminants that could interfere with its effectiveness. The installer will then run a hose to the area that needs to be sprayed, whether it’s an attic or crawl space in an existing home, or a rim joist or unfinished wall in new construction.

Before applying the foam, it’s essential to use professional installation contractors because spray polyurethane is a hazardous product. It contains isocyanates, which are highly reactive and can trigger allergic reactions in people with sensitive skin or respiratory conditions. If you decide to have spray foam installed in your home, it’s a good idea to evacuate the house during the application process. This is because spray foam insulation will off-gas volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for a few days until it’s fully cured.
