How Does Spray Foam Help In The Summer?

does spray foam help in the summer

The UK has a pretty bad reputation for rain, and it’s not a surprise seeing as it rains or snows for an average of 133 days a year. But, that still leaves plenty of rain-free days where the weather can take a rather abrupt turn…

The summer months in the UK can get incredibly hot, and there’s not going to be a break from the heat in 2018. A scorching hot summer is predicted, and the heat isn’t going to offer any relief for months.

While there is plenty that you can do to combat the cold, when it comes to the heat, it can feel like you have no other choice but to put up with it, maybe with the help of a few fans and plenty of cold drinks.

However, there is actually a solution to homes that are far too warm in the Summer, and it comes from an unlikely source. The number one product to combat the cold turns out to be a pretty good solution to combatting the heat.

Let’s take a look at how does spray foam help in the summer, and see what you could be missing out on if you don’t have home insulation…

Spray foam insulation installed in your loft, floors, or walls, all helps to create a barrier around your home. It’s keeps that expensive heat you pay for inside but also keeps the unwanted heat outside

Spray Foam in the Summer: What Should You Expect?

The first thought that you might have of spray foam insulation is that it’s a great material for stopping heat loss. That’s completely true, but where heat is retained it can also be protected against.

Spray foam insulation installed in your loft, floors, or walls, all helps to create a barrier around your home. It’s keeps that expensive heat you pay for inside but also keeps the unwanted heat outside.

The general concept around how spray foam works is pretty simple. The liquid foam gets sprayed onto a surface where it starts to expand at an incredible rate.

This creates a strong, water resistant, pest resistant, as well as an all-encompassing noise reduction barrier. Heat that interacts with the inside finds it difficult to escape and cold and heat from the outside find it very difficult to get in.

The result is a house that stays considerably cooler when faced with the brunt of the UK summer heatwave and a home that is cosy and warm in the winter when the worst of the snow starts to fall.

Along the same vein as spray foam insulation is conservatory roof insulation. This serves the same purpose, but the construction of the product is very different

How Else Can I Get My Home Set For Summer?

Spray foam insulation is a wonder-product in the summer when the heat inside somehow feels hotter than the heat outside, and you start to feel like there is no escape!

However, there are also other insulation-related products that can help to fully equip your home for the Summer months and the Winter months.

Along the same vein as spray foam insulation is conservatory roof insulation. This serves the same purpose, but the construction of the product is very different.

Conservatory roof insulation keeps that unbearable heat outside of a conservtaory where it belongs (in the summer at least). The insulation eliminates sun glare, puts an end to sun-related furniture damage, and gives you perfect control over the heat and light in your conservatory.

Another top product for summer protection and winter insulation is triple-glazing. The glazing, which has been a massive hit in colder countries, takes the security, insulation, and noise reduction offered by double glazing and takes it to whole new level.

Spray Foam Insulation: The Gift That Keeps On Giving
