SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
Spray foam insulates your home similar to common insulation products like fiberglass. But spray foam does more – it insulates and seals air leaks all in one process. Air sealing will block your interior air from escaping through your home’s cracks and crevices. Penetration points can be so tiny they may not be visible to the naked eye. The penetration points are a result of the construction process including installation of electrical wires, can lights, duct work, attic access doors and plumbing stacks. Sealing air leaks will keep your costly conditioned air inside your home.
WHY INVEST IN SPRAY FOAM INSULATION?
There are many ways to spend money on your home, so why should you invest in spray foam insulation? Here are some reasons:
- Better indoor air quality. Sealing air leaks and adding the correct ventilation to your home can improve your interior air quality. Air leakage (unwanted outside air that enters your home through cracks and opening) is not the same as ventilation. Sealed leaks and proper ventilation will create a healthier environment inside your home.
- Prevention of contaminants. If your home has a crawl space, installing foam insulation can drastically improve your indoor air quality. Air moves up from your crawl space as your home naturally breathes. Along with the air comes contaminants such as mold and pest debris. A sealed crawl space repels these toxins.
- Less wear and tear on your HVAC. Proper insulation and air sealing will lessen wear and tear on your HVAC system. If you are building a new home, the correct insulation and air sealing may mean you can install a smaller HVAC system.
