Insulating with spray foam offers many valuable benefits! Some of them are:
- health benefits
- structural benefits
- financial benefits
Spray foam insulation cuts down on air leaks, which can account for 30% of a home’s annual heating and cooling expenses. Insulating with spray foam also aids in controling the growth of mildew and mold which can cause so many very serious health issues! One way it does this is by greatly reducing the amount of water vapor that gets in through the leakage of air. It creates better indoor air quality in much the same way. Less air leakage means less dust, pollen and other particulates can get in, which is a big benefit to people with allergies and asthma.
Spray foam also adds a lot of internal strength to walls in the event of strong winds. It adds resistance to high wind uplift and blow-off for roofing through spray foam’s lack of fasteners that cause holes like nails and screws, and the lack of joints or edges.
Another terrific benefit of spray foam insulation is the reduction of noise! It can help soften the volume airborne noise, which is caused by stereos, talking, video games and tvs. This is accomplished by sealing every crack and crevice that would allow these noises to travel to your ears. It also reduces something called flanking noise, which happens when sound travels through spaces along plumbing pipes, electrical outlets, recessed lighting fixtures and framing connections.
Of course spray foam will also save you money! Spray foam insulation allows heating and cooling systems tooperate at much more energy efficient levels by sealing all of the spaces where air can get into or out of buildings. Spray foam insulation can help homeowners qualify for grants and tax credits too!
