The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Spray foam provides comprehensive insulation for your walls. It expands into all the crevices and cracks, driving out moisture, insects, mold, and other contaminants that would otherwise invade the wall. By comparison, fiberglass insulation attracts moisture, increasing the risk of mold and mildew. A home insulated with spray foam is thus far better protected against a range of external threats.
Whereas fiberglass insulation lets large amounts of air out of or into your home, spray foam keeps air leakage to a minimum— no small matter during a cold Queens winter. Combined with its penchant for keeping moisture out of your walls, this makes spray foam an effective way to improve energy efficiency. A layer of spray foam will reduce home energy use by as much as 50%. Spray foam also does not lose effectiveness in extreme cold, allowing you to maintain the same energy patterns no matter how harsh the winter gets.
By keeping insects and rodents out of your walls, spray foam gives them few opportunities to get into the interior of your house. You are thus less likely to have to deal with an infestation, saving you from the cost and effort of professional inspections and exterminations.
Between traffic, construction projects, and the daily actions of its more than 2 million residents, Queens is hardly a quiet place, but there is no need to let that excess noise inside your home. By blocking air leakage, spray foam gives sound few opportunities to travel through your walls. It is thus one of the most effective ways to soundproof a house, giving your family refuge from even the loudest, most persistent outdoor noises. In addition to soundproofing your walls, Foam Insulation Solutions will also install spray foam in your ceilings. This protects you from your neighbors’ noisy habits, averting conflict and further securing your family’s peace of mind.
