How to Use Spray Foam Insulation
How to use spray foam insulation to air seal doors, windows, holes, and cracks.
Spray foam insulation is a handy product to air seal all those air leaks in your home. Below is one of my recommended video’s that demonstrates the use of spray foam in a can and how it can be used to stop air leaks that waste energy.
Spray foam can be found at most of your favorite building and hardware stores. In most stores, the spray foam can be found next to the insulation. Like most products in a can, you should shake the can well before use.
With some of the spray foam insulation cans you will need to dispense the foam while holding the can upside down. Be sure and read the directions on the can to determine if the can can be held right-side-up or if it needs to be up-side down.
After screwing on the dispensing trigger and the straw, it is a good idea to test dispensing a little of the foam on a piece of card board or other material. This will allow you to see how fast and where the foam comes out.
The foam is very sticky so don’t wear good clothes. Also, line up the total job for the day in advance. Know just how many holes or spaces you are going to fill before beginning to apply the foam. It is almost impossible to get a can of spray foam to spray again after the foam has had a chance to dry in the trigger and neck of the can.
So, watch the video and then grab a can of Great Stuff, seal some air leaks and save some energy. It’s a great way to help keep your power bill under control.
