What is foam insulation?
If you’ve been to a few physics lectures, you know that heat flows through your home by three principles, namely, conduction, convection and radiation.
Conduction is the mildest and initial level of heat flow while radiation is the strongest and most invasive heating process. While foam cannot make your home completely radiation-free, it can control conductive and convective heat flow effectively.
The insulation process is simple. The foam material slows down the heat flow. This means it regulates the heat flow to go from warmer to cooler, balancing the temperature in your home.
The foam works in two ways. During winter, it stops the heat from leaving your home through your attic, walls, windows, and doors. Besides that, in the summertime, the insulation keeps heat from escaping your home’s interior.
Simply, foam insulation in Houston provides a barrier to balance the temperature inside your home.
