Spray foam insulation doesn’t just insulate your home like traditional insulation products such as fiberglass or cellulose. Spray foam insulation insulates and seals air leaks.
Air sealing prevents air from inside your home from escaping through the cracks and crevices in your home. These penetration points can be tiny – so small they may not be visible. These penetration points result from the construction process – installing electrical wires, can lights, duct work, attic access doors, plumbing stacks and more.
Sealing air leaks keeps conditioned air inside your home (air you’ve already paid to heat or cool).
Why invest in spray foam insulation?
With so many ways homeowners can spend money on their home, why should you invest in spray foam insulation? Here are just a few reasons:
- Sealing air leaks and adding proper mechanical ventilation to a home can increase your indoor air quality. Air leakage (outside air that enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings) is not the same as ventilation. Sealing these leaks and properly ventilating your home creates healthier indoor air.
- Is your house built on a crawl space? Insulating and sealing your crawl space with foam insulation can dramatically improve the air quality inside your home. As your home naturally breathes air from your crawl space moves up into your home, bringing with it contaminants such as mold and pest debris with it. Sealing your crawl space will keep those pests out of your home.
- By properly insulating and air sealing you will reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system. In new home construction, proper insulation and air sealing has resulted in the installation of a smaller HVAC system!
Have a metal building that needs insulation? Spray foam insulation is a great solution. It can easily be installed to the building’s interior to maintain indoor temperature. Spray foam can also increase the strength of your metal building, helping defend it against high winds and more.
Spray foam isn’t just for building insulation! We’ve installed spray foam insulation in a variety of applications – Sprinter vans that require a controlled temp, trailers and more!
