A wet spring has this year has morphed into a wet early summer. It’s left many wondering when they will see the sun again. The outlook for the rest of the summer isn’t set in stone, of course, but the potential for higher-than-average temperatures grows with each year. How can you prepare your home for a wet, hot summer? Expanding foam, also known as spray foam insulation like Icynene, can be beneficial dealing with both issues.
One of the reasons Icynene sprayed foam insulation is such a great asset in a home, when you’re worried about a rainy spring or a hot summer, is that wherever it is applied it creates an effective air barrier. In your own home, this can help to reduce sources of air loss, which contribute to higher heating bills in the winter, and higher cooling bills in the summer. In addition, closed cell spray foam insulation, like what is offered by Icynene, is recognized by FEMA as able to reject bulk water. This can put your home in a better position during times of extreme weather such as flooding, due to heavy rainfall.
