If you’re designing a new home, or you’d like to convert your current attic to living or storage space, using spray foam insulation as a key component to your attic conditioning system can lead to significant savings in energy usage.
Architects commonly place HVAC systems in attics to save space, but if the attic is vented to the outdoors, this means that all the conditioned air moving through those ducts is constantly exposed to outdoor temperatures. This requires your HVAC system to work harder in order to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.
By retrofitting your current attic insulation system with spray polyurethane foam, you can decrease the load on your HVAC system while simultaneously creating more usable space for your house.
SPF is a great choice for insulating behind knee walls and drop ceilings in finished attics, but it can also be applied directly beneath roof decking and between roof joists to bring your attic into your home’s thermal envelope.
For new construction, designing your home with a conditioned attic insulated with spray polyurethane foam can allow you to reduce the size of your HVAC system by up to 35%, saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars before your home ever faces its first season in Dallas.
