Spray Foam Insulation is the best and most advanced insulating material available for your home. It protects your family from airborne hazards, often lasts for the life of the structure, and saves you money in multiple ways. Make sure your new home has been insulated properly and up to date, with spray foam insulation.
Other types of rolled or blown insulation can’t guarantee a seal like spray foam (SPF) insulation. This seal is essential to containing and isolating your internal climate, increasing system efficiency and lowering costs.
SPF insulation can save you money on costly energy bills, reduce the chances of mold and mildew intrusion, and form a thermal barrier seal without extra cost.
This same sealing effect means that additional vapor protection or building wrap is often unnecessary, saving further money. A reduced chance of moisture entry and build-up means you’ll spend less money on expensive mold and mildew removal and repair, and spend more time enjoying your home.
Residential Spray Foam Insulation FAQ:
This mixture expands to 5-10 times its original size, rapidly filling cracks and crevices, creating an airtight seal on most construction materials.
Through energy savings alone, the cost of the SPF insulation system can be recovered in less than 5 years.
Another aspect to consider is the long life of SPF insulation when kept away from UltraViolet (UV) light sources, such as sunlight. You can expect your spray foam insulation to last the life of the structure.
Your newly insulated house is now moisture locked to prevent mold and mildew from coming in and spreading inside your house, a dangerous situation for the home’s occupants. The spray foam insulation will also add to the strength of your wall overall.
How ‘Green’ is Spray Foam Insulation?
Worldwide, buildings account for over 40% of energy usage and contribute over 30% of greenhouse gases (Source US Energy Information Administration 2008).
Spray foam insulation has been shown to reduce energy usage in buildings by 20%-40%. Reducing your energy consumption means reducing your carbon footprint, preserving the Earth for another generation.
