Uses For Foam Insulation


Properly insulating a home is essential to keep a home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There is a variety of insulation products and they can all provide different levels of insulation depending on how they are used. These types of insulation are fiberglass, cellulose, rigid and foam. Though fiberglass, cellulose and rigid are less expensive, foam insulation is more commonly used. Foam is used because it takes up less space and it has greater R-values than other insulation. It is made up of a molded or extruded polystyrene or polyurethane. It can be in liquid or board form.

Liquid forms of foam insulation can be used in large or small quantities. Small quantities can be picked up at local hardware stores and used to insulate water pipes or air ducts. Whereas larger quantities are used to fill in wall cavities in existing buildings.  Molded forms are large sheets of insulation that are used for insulating flat roofs or walls and ceilings. This type can also be made in smaller quantities to be used in insulating concrete blocks or hollow cavities. Extruded forms of insulation are sturdier and are also used for insulating walls and ceilings.

Flat Roof, Foam, Attics, Pipe Insulation, Materials

Though foam is most commonly used to insulate walls and ceilings, it is can also be used to insulate Flat Roof, Foam, Attics, Pipe Insulation, Materials. Foam, when sprayed in walls or floor cavities can help with soundproofing a building. Foam boards, when layed in two or more layers over a roof surface, can be used to insulate a flat roof. If moisture is a problem, foam  boards can be used to form a barrier against water vapor.

When insulating a house, the attic is probably one of the most important parts of the home to insulate. Foam insulation is the most popular way to insulate the attic. Using foam as an insulator in an attic space, fills in any cracks that will prevent air from seeping into the house.

Another way to prevent heat loss from going though the attic, is to insulate the attic stairs. Fold down stairs are are often made up of a thin piece of plywood and do not seal properly. To insure proper sealing, a piece of foam weather stripping can be applied between the door and the frame. In addition the area in which the stairs fold into can be boxed in with sheets of foam insulation.

Hi I'm Gina.
I'm mother of two wonderful 10 years sons. Their father has left us 8 years ago.
I have a question, maybe some of you can help me?
At what age should a parent teach their son about ‘sex’ if there is no father around or would it be better for the kid to have a male family member to do this?
It really bothers me because i've found adult magazine in their room today.
Should I talk to them by miself or ask my brother to do it?

Hope someone had the same problem and can advise me anything.
By the way, here is the photo of my sons:

Is Removable Insulation Your Best Solution?

By William C. Jones
Removable insulation is a blanket or jacket that can be put on and taken off easily. Often, the blankets use Velcro, and are as easy to affix as putting on sneakers that have Velcro ties. In contrast, regular insulation can be put on by professionals, but to take it off, you have to rip it out. It cannot be reused, and the process of ripping out the regular insulation creates quite a mess of fiberglass. So for whom is removable insulation the appropriate solution? Read on to find out.

The Role of Reflective Insulation in a Building

By Eric Judy
Reflective insulation in a building is used to offer thermal insulation. Thermal insulation guarantees thermal comfort to the occupants of a building during both winter and summer. Heat flows from a warm to a cool place by default. During winter, heat flows from the warm indoors towards the cold outdoors. In summer the reverse is true. Reflective insulation is designed to resist both these heat flows.

Factors Affecting Insulation

By Brij Shah
Insulation is needed not only to prevent heat leakage during the cold months, but also to spend less on cooling systems, which are so needed in Australia. Furthermore, it also refers to acoustic and liquid insulation.

Is Chimney Insulation Necessary?

By Steve Costigan
A properly insulated chimney is a key component of an energy efficient building. Effective insulation also contributes to safe chimney operation. Unfortunately, chimney insulation has never been a top priority for builders, so you may need to install an insulated chimney liner into your flue to make your system safe and efficient.
