If you are considering updating your insulation, one of the best options is spray foam insulation.
Spray foam insulation
has numerous benefits, such as being more airtight than fiberglass, providing better soundproofing, and having a longer lifespan. However, even spray foam insulation needs to be replaced at some point. So how often should you replace your spray foam insulation?
The answer to this question depends on a few factors:
The first factor is the type of spray foam insulation that was used for your home or business. The two most common types are open-cell and closed-cell, and both have different lifespans. Open-cell typically lasts around 10 years while closed-cell can last up to 25 years or more.
The second factor is the condition of your current insulation and what kind of environment it has been exposed to over time. If it’s in good condition and hasn’t been exposed to too much humidity or water damage, then it may not need to be replaced for a very long time. On the other hand, if there are signs of wear and tear or water damage, then it will likely need to be replaced sooner rather than later.
Another important factor is how well you maintain your insulation over time. Proper maintenance includes sealing around any pipes or ducts that penetrate through the walls and inspecting regularly for any signs of moisture or water damage—both of which can significantly reduce the lifespan of your spray foam insulation. Additionally, if you notice any areas where the insulation has settled or compressed over time due to weight or pressure from furniture or other items, these should also be addressed as soon as possible in order to maintain maximum efficiency and avoid further damage down the line.
Spray foam insulation is a great choice for homes because it offers superior airtightness, soundproofing capabilities, and energy efficiency compared to traditional fiberglass insulation. With proper care and maintenance, spray foam can last up to 25 years without needing replacement.
