Spray Foam Insulation
ABS Coastal Insulating’s founders have delivered insulation solutions to customers since 1991. We use numerous techniques to insulate our clients’ homes. One of the most popular and effective is spray foam insulation. Myrtle Beach, SC residents trust their insulation projects to ABS Coastal Insulating due to our reputation for outstanding customer service and exceptional work. Similar to other insulation products like fiberglass insulation, spray foam insulation adds R-value to your home or business. Unlike other methods, spray foam both insulates and seals air leaks in one step. Air sealing is critical because it prevents conditioned air from escaping the home. Air sealing blocks penetration points around areas like electrical wires, lights, ductwork, and plumbing stacks. Sealing air leaks will control your energy bills by keeping conditioned air inside your home.
Why invest in spray foam insulation?
There’s no shortage of insulation options on the market, and ABS Coastal Insulating provides many of them. Spray foam insulation delivers benefits in one step that other methods do not. While it may not be right for every project, those who choose spray foam see great results. ABS Coastal Insulating will inspect your home and make a recommendation. We believe spray foam insulation is a valid option because:
Improved indoor air quality: Sealing air leaks and adding the correct ventilation to your home can improve your home’s interior air quality. Air leakage (unwanted outside air that enters your home through cracks and openings) is not the same as ventilation. Sealing air leaks combined with proper mechanical ventilation creates a healthier and more comfortable environment inside your house.
Reduced contaminants: If your home has a crawl space, installing foam insulation can drastically improve your indoor air quality. More importantly, it can reduce contaminants by helping to keep out pests and everything that goes with them. Because air that circulates through the house initiates from the crawl space or basement, adding spray foam to a crawl space is beneficial.
Reduced strain on your HVAC system: Proper attic insulation and air sealing can reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system. When your home leaks air, both the furnace and air conditioner must work twice as hard to add the correct amount of heated or cooled air to the home. If you are building a new home, the proper insulation and air sealing may mean you could install a smaller HVAC system.
Lifespan: Your home is an investment, and so is your chosen insulation material. Spray foam insulation doesn’t degrade or break down. Spray foam insulation’s superior lifespan can save money over the long-term.
How Does Spray Foam Insulation Work?
Spray foam is comprised of two composite materials that react to each other to create an expanding effect. During the process, our specialists use a foam gun to target critical areas of your attic or crawl space. As the foam expands, it fills every crevice and cracks in the target area. There are two kinds of spray foam insulation – open cell and closed cell. An ABS Coastal Insulation estimator can explain the process and provide a price estimate.
