In keeping your house warm, you can use Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF). SPF is an effective insulation and air sealant material; however, exposures to its key ingredient, isocyanates such as “MDI,” and other SPF chemicals which may be found in vapors, aerosols, dust or on surfaces during and for a period of time after installation may cause adverse health effects such as asthma. Therefore, in keeping your house warm, steps to control exposures and safety tips should be followed.

4. Radiant Barriers

Radiant Barriers

In keeping your house warm, you can also use Radiant Barrier. Radiant Barrier or Reflective Barrier inhibit heat transfer by thermal radiation. Thermal energy may also be transferred via conduction or convection, however, and radiant barriers do not necessarily protect against heat transfer via conduction or convection. Nevertheless, applying radiant barriers in your house will help your work in keeping your house warm.

3. Reflective Insulation

In keeping your house warm, you can apply the reflective insulation in your house. Reflective Insulation employs two highly reflective surfaces to resist radian heat transfer, a feature not offered by traditional mass insulation. These reflective surfaces are joined to a substrate that contains closed air spaces to help prevent conductive and convective heat transfer and also help your work in keeping your house warm, making homes more comfortable at lower cost.

2. Cotton Insulation Made from recycled Blue Jeans

In keeping your house warm, you can apply cotton insulation made of recycled blue jeans on your wall. Some people know that heat only flows in one direction: from a hotter object to a colder one, such as when your morning cup of coffee cools until it is the same temperature as your kitchen. This insulation serves as a barrier to minimize the transfer of heat from one material (the coffee) to another (the air around you). Then, this insulation is very beneficial in keeping your house warm.

1. Mineral Wool

Mineral Wool Insulation

In keeping your house warm, you can also apply mineral wool on your wall. Mineral wool is made from molten glass, stone or slag that is spun into a fiber-like structure. Inorganic rock or slag are the main components (typically 98%) of stone wool. The remaining 2% organic content is generally a thermosetting resin binder (an adhesive) and a little oil. Then, this insulation of mineral wool on your walls is very beneficial in keeping your house warm.

Hope you could apply these materials in keeping your house warm in your house!
