What Happens if Spray Foam Insulation Gets Wet?

Whenever you get spray foam insulation in your home, it comes with superior advantages such as saving money, being more energy efficient, your home stays cooler in these summer months, and your house will just be much more comfortable. Unfortunately, as with most improvements you do to your home, making the right choice on what type of material to use can become incredibly overwhelming. We get asked all the time, what happens if I invest in spray foam insulation and then it gets wet? We live in a very humid state. In fact, I walked outside today and whenever I closed my front door, my hand was wet from the condensation that was caused by the humidity on my door knob. So it is not unusual that you are concerned about your insulation getting wet. It is safe to say that not all insulation is created equally. Some insulation is even used to insulate boats so it is likely that it will get wet at some point. If you choose the right insulation, and it is installed correctly by a professional you should not even be worried about it getting wet from humidity. There are instances where there may be a water leak, though. Let’s look at what this would do to your insulation.

Does Insulation Help in The Summer?

Does Insulation Help in The Summer?

It’s no secret that summers in Arkansas are hot and humid. Stepping outside feels similar to opening the door to an oven whenever the thick air hits your face. Going inside seems to be the only retreat from the humidity, so the last thing you want is to feel the same sticky and hot air while you are inside the comforts of your home. That is where good insulation comes in and saves the day. Whenever people think of insulating their home, they typically think about keeping their home warm during the harsh winter months. However, the same rule applies to the summer with keeping hot air out and cool air in. The cost of insulating your home may be daunting, but the reality is you will leave more down the road by not having to crank the air conditioning up high all summer long. How Does Insulation work? Like we said above, yes, your insulation does help keep your home toasty in the winter months but also cooled off in the summer months. To break it down, we turned to the Department of Energy, “to understand how insulation works, it helps to understand heat flow, which involves three basic mechanisms — conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the way heat moves through materials, such as when a spoon placed in a hot cup of coffee conducts heat through its handle to your hand. Convection is the way heat circulates through liquids and gases, and is why lighter, warmer air rises, and cooler, denser air sinks in your home. Radiant heat travels in a straight line and heats anything...

However, if you over insulate you are just wasting your money on resources that are not being used. R-Value Have you heard of “R-Value?” According to The U.S. Department of Energy, “an insulating material’s resistance to conductive heat flow, measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value — the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on the type of insulation, its thickness, and its density. The R-value of some insulations also depends on temperature, aging, and moisture accumulation.” Whenever you insulate your...
