Spray foam insulation is a great product to protect pipes from cold temperatures. Here are three ways spray foam insulation can help prevent freezing pipes:
- Add foam insulation to walls that are affected by water pipes. In open cavities, spray foam insulation can be added prior to closing the walls. In existing walls, injection foam can be added to exterior walls.
- Insulate your attic or crawl space with spray foam insulation. Spray foam helps protect water pipes from cold temperatures. It is also water resistant which makes it ideal for use near water pipes.
- Insulate and air seal basement rim joists with spray foam insulation. This helps keep cold outside air from infiltrating the basement and away from pipes. Insulating and air sealing your basement rim joists can also help the main floor of your home retain a comfortable temperature.
