Insulation Kansas City: The Truth Behind R-Values

Use Sealection500 to Improve Your Insulation Kansas City Efficiency

Insulating Your Kansas City Home

Insulation in your home is meant to stop the movement of heat. The more effective your insulation is at reducing heat flow, the lower you can expect your heating and cooling costs to be. You will often hear insulation efficacy discussed in terms of R-value, which is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction industry. R-value is the reciprocal of U-factor. According to this concept, the higher the R-value is, the better the building insulation’s effectiveness.

This gets confusing because the concept might lead you to believe that more insulation is the best solution, when in fact there is a diminishing return on investment for increasing R-values. Remember, R-value only measures one of the factors that dictates how home insulation will perform. Heat moves in and out of buildings in four ways:  by conduction, convection, radiation and air infiltration. R-value is only related to conduction and does not address these other forms of movement.

Is Spray Foam Right For My Kansas City Home?

Spray Foam in Your Kansas City Home

Insulation is an important part of every home and building. New technology has been developed over the years to meet the growing demand for energy efficiency. KC Spray Foam has the best products used in the industry along with the experts to do it right. Choosing spray foam for your Kansas City home has many advantages. Our open cell and closed cell foams seal up areas where air gets through and gets into hard to reach irregular areas. These foams do more than what the traditional fiberglass insulation can do. Another advantage to installing spray foam is it will not be a source of food for mold to grow. This will keep the air quality of your home safer for you and your family. Spray foam can prevent pests from entering and nesting in the walls of your home. It won't be damaged by water and won't shrink over time. You will also notice a significant savings on your utility bills using spray foam insulation.

Types of Kansas City Spray Foam

KC Spray Foam uses both open and closed cell spray foams. Open cell spray foam is a semi-rigid 1/2 pound per cubic foot spray foam and is low density. It is designed to be used indoors only. Because the cells are open, it relies on the trapping of the air inside of the foam which then insulates the air seal. The blowing agent in open cell spray foam is water. There are no toxic gases released into the air using this process. This type of spray foam works for new construction, remodels, agricultural buildings and commercial buildings. This type of spray foam is not to be used outdoors.
