Year-Round Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Wednesday, January 29th, 2020
When we start to feel uncomfortable in our home, we immediately turn the thermostat up or down to solve our comfort problems.
Considering a majority of our electric bills come from our heating and cooling systems (roughly 54%), any expert in building science would highly recommend home improvements that focus on keeping the conditioned air within the home, which would call for air sealing and insulation upgrades.
Best of Both Worlds – Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam’s ability to provide both air sealing and insulating properties makes it stand out from the rest. It offers year-round benefits that most other insulation materials cannot offer. Spray foam is also quite versatile as well, as it can be installed in small nooks and crannies in the attic or crawl space.
What are the benefits of spray foam insulation?
- Reduced heating and cooling bills – With spray foam insulation, your home’s ability to hold conditioned air within the living space will be much more effective than it once was. You’ll basically be turning your home into a giant thermos, except you don’t put soup in it! As the seasons change, you’ll feel better when the energy bills come around.
- Improved home comfort – Home comfort and energy usage go hand-in-hand; the more comfortable you feel at home the less likely you’ll need to rely on your heating and cooling equipment. With spray foam’s impressive insulating value and air-sealing properties applied to your home, the conditioned air within your living space will stay around for longer periods of time, making you feel comfortable year-round – even during those extreme climate changes in the winter and summertime.
- Improved air quality – By applying spray foam insulation along the walls and ceilings between spaces in the attic and crawl space, you can eliminate nasty air pollutants from entering your building. The air sealing barrier of spray foam helps reduce outdoor pollutants such as dust and dirt, mold, carbon monoxide, and radon from entering your living space. Your family can experience healthier home-living with decreased allergies and asthma, as well as other respiratory illnesses all year long.
