Spray Foam Benefits
Advances in technology mean that spray foam has improved a lot over the past few decades, making it the ideal choice for many property owners.
But what are the main benefits to spray foam insulation? Here are the most significant benefits that show why this option could be the perfect choice, and not only help you save money but also futureproof your property.
Its a money saver
Why spend more money on your heating bills than you need to. With spray foam insulation, you can reduce heating costs. The initial investment may seem a little on the expensive side, but in the long-term. This is because spray foam effectively air seals your roof or walls, helping to save you money on energy bills, year in and year out by preventing heat loss.
Traditional methods of insulation can start to lose effectiveness as time goes on. The makeup of spray foam means that it can last for many decades. Spray foam insulation will keep its shape, no matter the temperature, for a long time. Spray foam insulation can give you a certain level of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have to change it or get it replaced for many years to come.
Condensation deterrent in the property
When traditional insulation gets wet, it would typically need to be replaced. When you have spray foam, that is not the case as it creates an air barrier but allows moisture content to pass through and reduce the occurrence of condensation. Spray foam also benefits from being fitted into the smallest spaces, where traditional loft insulation often cannot, which helps reduce the chances of getting any water into your home in the first place.
Easy to install
As spray foam is so easy to install, it just shows why it is a popular choice. You can get to areas that are hard to reach, and it is a process that is quick and non-intrusive. Our team will use a spray foam insulation gun to cover the desired areas. It dries fast so that the loft insulation can be completed quickly, and the space can be back to being used again, usually within a day.
Temperature control and comfort
One of the products benefits is that it can prevent temperature fluctuations in a property. For added comfort and maintaining temperature, spray foam insulation can provide the tightest of seals, helping to retain heat in winter but helping maintain a cool temperature in summer.
Improve the indoor air quality of your property
One significant benefit is reducing indoor allergens, such as dust, pollen, mildew, mould, and other pollutants. These allergens can make their way into your home through the walls, impacting the air quality for all inside. Another benefit is that spray foam is not an appealing ‘food’ for pests, so it can be another angle that helps to improve the quality of the indoor air. Spray foam can reduce airborne allergies and asthma symptoms and is non-toxic, making it an excellent option for homes and commercial buildings.
Increases the efficiency of your property
One of the main reasons you may be looking to get your home insulated is to improve the energy efficiency of the house, and in turn, make your home more environmentally friendly. Spray foam is a form of insulation that helps the environment reduce how much energy your home needs.
Reducing external noise
You have the added benefit of not hearing as many sounds from outdoors or neighbours because the sound does not travel well through an area that has been insulated with spray foam. Once it has been installed, the insulation will absorb any sound waves, so you will create a quieter space, whether that is at home or in an office.
