Can Foam Insulation in Baltimore, MD
Air sealing is a critical part of today’s building process. Sealing air leaks can dramatically decrease energy bills and increase indoor air quality. Although spray foam insulation can be used specifically for air sealing, there are many air sealing products to seal key penetration points in a home. For jobs where spray foam insulation isn’t appropriate or requested, can foam is installed to minimize air leaks. Fire foam is installed in key construction areas where fire resistance is necessary.
What is Can Foam Insulation?
When You Should Use Can Foam Insulation
Can foam insulation is ideal for smaller insulation projects that involve sealing off leaks, gaps or holes around your home. Some of the key penetration points in a home include around recessed (can) lights, plumbing stacks, electrical wires, attic hatches or doors, around chimneys or flues and around duct chases. These small air leaks can have a significant impact on the energy efficiency of your home, leaking your heated or cooled air out and letting other air in.
Certain types of can foam insulation can also be used in some exterior applications such as by gas and electrical penetrations, around exterior vents, along with the spaces where your siding meets the foundation and other applications.
Benefits of Can Foam Insulation
Can foam insulation has all the insulating properties and air sealing benefits of spray foam insulation. Whereas spray foam insulation is great for larger projects, the application method of can foam insulation makes it preferable for small holes and leaks. Can foam insulation lets you easily get to small spaces around windows and doors, along baseboards, around pipe and duct penetrations and more. This thorough air sealing will improve your home’s overall energy efficiency and cut down on your utility bills as you lose less air through gaps in your home.
Another benefit of can foam insulation is that it usually doesn’t have to be trimmed after application due to the bead-type method of application. If applied to an open space that is easily visible, it can often be painted, sanded or stained after application to match the surrounding surfaces.
