8 Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
For Your HomeYou will find there are many benefits to having spray foam insulation installed in your home. However, here are eight benefits to help you decide if spray foam insulation is the right choice to protect your home.
Heat and Cooling Benefits For Your HomeSpray foam insulation will be sprayed in your walls and into any cracks and crevices that have opened up over time and expand to fit. The process will make your home airtight and add a layer of insulation.
The benefits of all this are that heat can not escape during winter, and during summer, the heat won’t leak in from outside through the gaps and cracks you previously had. You also get the insulation layer throughout the entire house.
This all results in you staying more comfortable and your energy bills going down.
Noise Reduction For Your HomeWhen trying to enjoy your home, one of the major pain points is the noise from neighbors, outside traffic, or even just noisy animals roaming around.
With spray foam insulation, much of the noise will be blocked by the heavy and thick insulation. Meaning your home will be quieter and more enjoyable during your downtime.
Reduced Pollen and Allergens In Your HomeBecause professional spray foam installation will close all the gaps, cracks, and openings into your home, anything coming in via air before will now be blocked. This blocking includes any allergens, pollen, or general smell that wasn’t making your life enjoyable before.
This sealing process is not found with other insulation methods, so it is a significant benefit with spray foam.
Prevent Bugs, Insects, Rodents From Coming InsideNo matter where you live, some kind of bug, insect, or rodent will want to visit your home through cracks and holes in your walls. Sometimes this is just for a visit, and sometimes this becomes an infestation in your home.
Spray foam will block any holes that these things may try to enter your home through. It also becomes extremely hard, so it would be difficult to eat through. In addition, spray foam does not resemble or smell like food, so it isn’t enticing to eat through in the first place.
Prevent Mold and Mildew In Your HomeSpray foam becomes a hard barrier for anything trying to enter your home; this includes any kind of water, whether it’s rain or something else. The spray foam will also fill the spaces it is put into and doesn’t allow for mold or mildew to grow inside the actual foam.
So spray foam insulation will repel any water trying to enter your home and assist in growing mold and mildew. There is limited space for the water to hide and grow mold or mildew in your walls if it does manage to stay there.
Strengthen Your HomeWhether your home is new or old, spray foam insulation strengthens your walls as it’s a dense and hard cavity filling material. Over time nature will attack your home and cause cracks, shift walls, and many other issues that weaken your home.
With spray foam insulation, it acts as glue to keep everything stuck together and strong. You can even use spray foam insulation in your attic to keep your roof leak-free and strong during storms.
Higher Longevity Than Other OptionsLooking at a direct comparison between spray foam insulation, fiberglass, and cellulose, you find that fiberglass and cellulose will shift or settle over time, leaving gaps due to gravity. In addition, the other options don’t provide any real noise or water protection to your home that spray foam does.
The other major issue is that you’ll likely need to replace the other options. At the same time, spray foam insulation can last the lifetime of your home. Spray foam will not move, it will not shrink or sag, and it is mold and mildew resistant, so there is no reason to replace it unless you are making changes to your home.
Eco-Friendly and SafeSpray foam insulation reduces energy consumption and doesn’t need to be replaced. Still, if you do replace or remove it, spray foam can be recycled as well. There have also been numerous studies to show that once dried, spray foam is 100% safe for you to breathe and touch with no ill effects.
On the other hand, fiberglass is made of tiny shards of glass that you should not touch or breathe at any time; otherwise, you may have issues.
Spray foam insulation is slightly higher priced, but it’s something you should only have to do for your home once. Then you can enjoy the benefits for a lifetime.
The major benefits as listed above are temperature control in your home, noise reduction, pollen, and allergy stoppage, no more insects, bugs, or rodents getting inside, a barrier to stop mold and mildew, and the ability to strengthen your home from years of damage.
