(NAPSI)—To keep heating costs from going through the roof, many people add insulation to the walls, attic or floor. Spraying polyurethane foam insulation, or “SPF,” can be a great way to do so.

How It Works

SPF is applied as a liquid and quickly expands into a high-R-value foam insulation and air sealant. It’s very effective at keeping cold air out by sealing cracks, seams and joints. Less heating seeps out and more stays inside, keeping you and your family comfortable.

The Benefits

According to the experts at the Spray Foam Coalition, SPF insulation can also:

• Limit air leaks to improve moisture control and help reduce mold and mildew formation.

• Seal gaps to keep pollen and dust outside.

• Create a seamless air and weather barrier as a roofing material on low-sloped or flat surfaces.

Installation Information

Unlike using individual cans of foam sealant in small areas, however, installing SPF to insulate and air seal attics, crawl spaces and basements is not a do-it-yourself project. Homeowners should work with a professional installer.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
