Spray Foam Insulation In A Humid Region

Spray Foam Insulation In A Humid Region

When you live in a part of the country with a high humidity level, whether it be warm or cool, airborne moisture can potentially affect the comfort of you and your family. Believe it or not, the type of insulation you choose to install in your home can make a difference in your home’s moisture level. Spray foam insulation like Icynene can help play a role in addressing moisture entry into your home. 

But how can spray foam insulation help reduce humidity? Icynene spray foam expands just seconds after application to fill all gaps and holes, creating an effective air barrier wherever it’s applied. This air barrier helps to reduce the passage of moisture-laden air into the home, which helps to reduce overall humidity levels inside your home.

Secondly, when you live in a humid region, the presence of mold everywhere is a constant challenge. The great thing about Icynene spray foam is that it’s not considered a source of food for mold, making it a better insulation choice than traditional materials. 

Find a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area to discover more reasons to choose Icynene.
