What is The Best Type of Insulation for Homes in Edmonton?
Posted on: 2013-09-15
In Edmonton, the winters can be cold and snowy, while the summers tend to be reasonably warm with the occasional period of very warm or hot temperatures. Because of this, your home must be properly insulated to keep the warm air inside during the winter, while keeping the cool air out as must as possible. Of course, the opposite of this must occur in the summer.
Windows Help, But its Not the Whole Deal
Installing new windows complete with vinyl frames do a good job of helping your house’s temperature stay regulated, but for the best results, you should update your home’s insulation as well. Heat rises, so insulating the attic of your home will prevent the warmth produced by your furnace from escaping through the roof. Since it can be tricky to get up into your attic and install insulation in all of the tiny nooks and crannies up there, you need to use just the right type.
What is the Best Insulation?
What it all comes down to is that the best insulation to use on houses in Edmonton is the polyurethane spray foam kind. It is easy to install, since the spraying device gets the insulation into all of the right places. Spray insulation also keeps out pollen and dust, and prevents moisture and air from seeping into your home.
What About the Chemicals?
There has been some concern about the chemicals in the sprayer not being environmentally friendly, but this can be avoided by choosing a brand of insulation that does not contain them. As long as the proper precautions are taken by the installer, spray insulation is perfectly safe. Once it is fully installed, it causes no ill effects whatsoever.
The permanence of this type of insulation is what makes it a great choice for the residents of Edmonton. It will make your home a little bit stronger, while keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, as proper insulation should.
