While there are several methods of insulating your house, spray foam is an ideal solution. Spray foam derives its name from the composite materials (isocyanate and polyurethane) which react, producing a foamy substance that expands and ultimately hardens. During Spray Foam Insulation, the contractor sprays the composite materials simultaneously to the desired region. As they spray, the materials swell and fill the crevices and gaps.
What are the benefits of spray foam insulation?
Below are reasons why you should consider spray form insulation for your home.
- Deters moisture: Water can effortlessly seep through openings around vents and pipes, exposing your home to bacteria and decay. Normally, when insulation becomes wet, it requires a replacement; however, spray foam retains its properties, the level of wetness notwithstanding. Furthermore, spray foam gets into the tiniest crannies and nooks, deterring moisture from getting into the house in the first place.
- Improves comfort: Spray foam prevents temperature variations in the house by making an airtight seal, protecting the building from weather elements. Other insulation materials do not create the seal, since they do not adhere to every surface.
- Enhances the quality of air in the house: One of the main benefits of spray foam insulation is its capacity to reduce indoor allergens, like pollen, dust, mildew, mold, and other contaminants. Most of these allergens do not enter your office or house through open windows and doors but through the walls. Moreover, pest and rodent waste often affect the quality of air in the home. However, spray foam is not ideal as a nest or food for these animals.
- Easy to install: the popularity of spray foam insulation is largely due to its ease of application. This material is a non-invasive process as it dries quickly. During installation, professionals use a gun to spray the material on the desired area.
- Eco-friendly: Spray foam insulation helps the environment by minimizing your carbon footprint as you are using less energy.
