Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Insulation impacts both the conduction and the convection of heat flow – it keeps your home warm in the winter, cool in the summer and more comfortable year-round. Spray foam insulation can be applied in any space to prevent heat transfer – but the real magic lies in its ability to seal air leaks, creating a custom airtight thermal envelope. Traditional fiberglass and cellulose insulation can only offer a limited degree of this protection, but closed- and open-cell polyurethane foam can seal nooks and crannies that can cause energy loss.

In addition to preventing air leaks, spray foam also improves indoor air quality. The airtight seal it creates stops polluted outdoor air from entering your house, reducing dust and dirt infiltration, which can clog up your HVAC filters.

Comparing Spray Foam Insulation to Traditional Insulation

Another benefit of spray foam insulation is its ability to resist moisture. It prevents water vapor and dampness from seeping into places like your attic or crawl space, which can lead to mold, mildew and structural damage.

Spray foam insulation also reduces your home’s energy consumption, which directly affects your electricity bills. The insulation’s powerful sealing ability means that your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard to keep the property at a comfortable temperature, and those lower consumption levels will soon add up to big savings on your utility costs.
