There are many advantages to insulating with spray foam! Some of them are:
Spray foam insulation helps eliminate air leaks, which can account for 30% of a home’s annual heating and cooling expenses. This also helps control the growth of mildew and mold, which can cause a multitude of serious health issues, by reducing the amount of water vapor that gets in through air leakage. It improves indoor air quality in much the same way. Less air leakage means less dust and pollen can get in, which is great for people with allergies.
Spray foam can also add significant structural strength to walls during high winds. It adds resistance to high wind uplift and blow-off in the roof due to its lack of fasteners like nails and screws, and the lack of joints or edges.
Another great benefit of spray foam is noise reduction! It can help reduce airborne noise, which is made by stereos, talking, game systems and televisions. It does this by sealing every crack and crevice that would allow these noises to travel. It also reduces flanking noise, which is when sound travels through spaces along plumbing pipes, electrical outlets, recessed light fixtures and framing connections.
Of course spray foam insulation will also save you money! It allows heating and cooling systems to be much more energy efficient by sealing all of the places where air can travel into or out of buildings. Spray foam insulation can help homeowners qualify for grants and tax credits too! Take a look at this video that talks about spray foam insulation’s benefits:
