Spray foam insulation has grown in popularity over the years. While it can be more expensive than alternative insulation types, its long-term benefits can outweigh the larger upfront cost. Benefits include more than just serving as an air barrier and an insulator; it can also sound proof and keep moisture out of your home. However, if spray foam insulation is installed incorrectly, it can be ineffective or even dangerous. Check out our latest blog from guest poster Elizabeth Sanfelippo, IDL-certified BPI Certified Professional, and energy efficiency expert at ECO THREE, for more information on how spray foam installation can go wrong: http://bit.ly/2uV4sEQ.
