Need to insulate your living space? We know you have plenty of insulation options to choose from and that selecting the right one can be difficult. Out of all the insulation types available to homeowners, our contractors believe spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a fantastic choice. Below, we explain why you should choose spray foam insulation.
Spray foam may cost more at first, but it’s worth the investment. In large part, this is because it will decrease your energy bills: air won’t leak in or out of your house, so your heating and cooling units won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable.
It Creates a Powerful Seal
Some insulation types can’t fill hard-to-reach areas such as wiring holes and openings around vents. Fortunately, spray foam expands, so it seeps into these nooks and crannies beautifully. Additionally, compared to other types of insulation, SPF has a high R-value, meaning it acts as a barrier against cool drafts and heat. Your home will boast consistent temperatures—and, as an added perk, the spray foam’s airtight properties allow it to block indoor and outdoor noise.
It Improves Air Quality
Another benefit of spray foam insulation is its ability to improve your home’s air quality. Dust, mildew, mold, and pollen can easily aggravate allergies, but spray foam resists moisture, so it effectively protects against these irritants. Spray foam insulation also deters pests. Typically, insects and rodents can find their way into other types of insulation, but if you install SPF, you can rest assured unwelcome critters won’t destroy it.
One of the best things about SPF is that it requires little to no maintenance. A home often won’t stand a chance against bad weather if its insulation can’t assist the frame in staying put. Spray foam insulation, however, boasts incredible strength. It makes walls sturdy, and it doesn’t sag over time. Instead, the foam keeps its shape. Your home will remain untouched in extreme weather conditions.
