Spray foam insulation is an excellent option for homeowners who are looking for an effective way to improve the energy efficiency of their home. Spray foam insulation is a high-quality insulator, and delivers superior performance. Because it expands to fill virtually any space, it can reach even the smallest nooks and crannies to form a tight seal.
The cost and commitment of having new insulation installed can feel intimidating to many homeowners, but the process is simpler than you might imagine. As a high-performance material that provides major energy savings, the benefits of spray foam insulation can quickly offset the initial cost.
Is spray foam insulation environmentally friendly?
Spray foam is a great choice if you’re looking for eco-friendly insulation. Spray foam is made of inert polymers that have an indefinite lifespan. Because the material lasts indefinitely, it helps cut back on the unnecessary production of waste and materials.
Is spray foam insulation expensive?
The upfront cost of spray foam insulation is a bit higher than other commonly used materials, but it offers an assortment of benefits that help offset this cost. Installing spray foam insulation can greatly reduce your annual energy costs, and help your heating and cooling systems work more efficiently. Over time, your investment will pay for itself in the form of energy savings.
Can spray foam insulation be used in small spaces?
One of the major benefits of this insulating material is how versatile it is. The foam starts out as a liquid, which expands in order to fill and insulate the space. For small or hard-to-access spaces in your home, spray foam insulation can be the perfect solution.
Should I be concerned about mold?
In order for mold to grow, it needs to have warmth, moisture, and food. Foam insulation does not provide any nutrition for mold. Its effectiveness as an insulator reduces air movement, thereby preventing the flow of warm air through the space. Its insulating properties also enable it to effectively prevent condensation, which reduces the risk of moisture buildup in your home. If you’re concerned about mold, spray foam insulation is a great option for your home.
Am I able to install the insulation myself?
While taking on the installation process as a DIY project may seem like a great way to save money, it’s best to have a professional install your spray foam insulation. The process requires special protective gear, as well as the skill and experience to apply the foam correctly. In order to work effectively, this material is incredibly sticky and expands very quickly, which means there is a very little room for error. Installing too much or too little foam can cause major problems down the road. Due to the potential safety hazards and level of skill required, we highly recommend hiring a professional to take care of your spray foam insulation project. A qualified professional will have the experience and skill needed to complete the job quickly, safely, and effectively.
