Here’s the thing about fiberglass insulation. Typically, this type of insulation is applied to the ceiling. It is basically designed to trap the heat inside, which is not what we ideally want in Indianapolis.
Although it is an insulation type but fiberglass is not by design fully airtight. There are many places through which air can squeeze in and out carrying moisture and heat with it. Fiberglass insulation is by default, loose in nature – thanks to light fixtures, plumbing pass through and air conditioning vents. On windy days, you should be ready to welcome more air, coupled with more humidity in your house. And don’t even get us started on traditional cellulose…
On the other hand, spray foam is like a breeze of fresh air. It prevents more than 85% of the sun’s heat from entering your house or office. The attic spray foam insulation seals the entire roof and attic. The attic is no more vented and actually becomes part of the air conditioning. All this allows you not to worry about sealing the ceiling.
By making the air conditioning more effective, you don’t have to deal with those high temperatures at attic level. Attic spray foam insulation creates an environment where the attic temperature is only slightly higher than the living space, if any higher at all. In contrast to that, a normal roof space’s temperature can get up to as high as 150 degrees.
As a result of all this, you save big time on heating and electricity bills.
If breathing in fresh, uncontaminated air is what you want, fiberglass and cellulose insulation (especially old ones) is not going to satiate your lungs. With the passage of time, you’ll have to deal with the evils of mildew, mold, dust, animal droppings and dirt. The atmosphere inside your room will soon begin to deteriorate and make life tough inside, especially for people with asthma or dust allergies. The spray foam attic insulation will keep the attic floor cleaner, cooler and make the environment inside more breathable.
