Top Three Benefits of Installing Spray Foam Insulation

Posted By Demilec, Inc. || 28-Mar-2017

Is your home struggling to stay cool in summer and warm in winter? Do you feel like your utility bills are constantly way above what they should be? Does your home feel drafty? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could tremendously benefit from making the switch to spray foam insulation in your home. Spray foam works by filling in and sealing the cracks in your home, protecting you from losing heat in winter and gaining heat from outside during summer. Why is this important? Here are the top three benefits of installing spray foam.

1. Reduced Energy Costs

Your home is full of air leaks, which is why the air you want inside your home tends to escape and be replaced by the air you don’t want from outside. To solve this, we insulate our homes. However, the traditional fiberglass blankets that have been in homes for many years are not perfect and still allow a fair amount of unwanted air passage. Spray foam fills these gaps with a custom-formed seal, giving you the maximum protection. This means that your home’s HVAC system will not have to work nearly as hard to keep you comfortable, which will improve its longevity and dramatically reduce your utility bills.

2. Increased Comfort

Even with a new, top-of-the-line HVAC system, a leaky home can still struggle to remain comfortable for a long period of time. Sealing your home with spray foam insulation can solve this issue by helping to keep the air in your home from changing temperature too much as a result of outside influences. Even with a state-of-the-art climate control system, an unsealed home is subject to drafts from doors, windows, or even the attic, which can cause temperature fluctuations and less comfort while indoors. By sealing these air leaks, you can reduce the temperature changes as much as possible.

3. Increased Roof Durability

Another added benefit of spray polyurethane foam applied to your attic and the underside of your roof is that it adds another layer of support and protection for your roof, thus increasing its resilience to the elements. In fact, roofs that have been treated with spray foam have seen usable lifespans of 30 years or more. Additionally, the expanding nature of spray foam means that it creates a seal around potential leak locations, such as around vents and fasteners. This adds yet another type of protection to your home, protecting it from water damages as well as keeping you comfortable inside.
