The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Save On Your Energy Costs All Year Long
The difference between spray foam and other types of insulation is that foam expands and provides completed coverage while creating a tight seal around the entire building interior. Whereas air and water can creep through fiberglass or cellulose, spray foam will stop it dead in its tracks. You will notice a savings of up to 50% on your electric bill annually by installing polyurethane spray foam into the walls, attic, and crawl space.
Protect Home or Business from Moisture
Moisture is the number one cause of home deterioration in the framework and along the walls. Although most insulation can keep water from dripping through the attic, it doesn't stop humidity and condensation. In fact, when fiberglass gets wet it stops being effective at keeping air from coming through.
Control The Atmosphere
This is why spray foam is a smarter option. After foam expands it hardens and forms a rock-like barrier around the house. This barrier is impervious to any type of moisture including condensation and humidity. It offers a protective shield that blocks all outside weather. It also acts as a thermal barrier throughout the year. Regardless of what is going on outside, you'll have an easier time controlling the atmosphere inside the building. It protects any structure regardless of how large or small.
Are you building a room that needs a little extra quiet such as nursery or a music studio? By using closed-cell spray foam you instantly notice a drastic reduction in the noise levels by up to 70 decibels. Closed-cell spray foam is slightly spongier than open cell. This allows it to absorb sound vibrations. So instead of frequencies bouncing off the walls or getting through, they'll simply disappear. Your room will be much quieter.
