If you are building, or even renovating a home, opting for spray foam insulation will help keep your home energy efficient. Homeowners know to choose energy-efficient appliances and windows, but did you know that spray foam insulation reduces utility costs too?
Because spray foam insulates and seals, it can help keep your home’s temperature better regulated so your heating and cooling systems can run more efficiently. Spray insulation helps mitigate air leakage, and reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth. So not only are you choosing something more energy efficient when you choose spray insulation, but you’re also making a great decision to help keep your family healthy.
Other forms of insulation are typically sprayed, or loosely attached, and then sandwiched between the walls, allowing air to flow through from both sides. If insulation is installed poorly, or not enough insulation is added to the area, your heating and cooling systems have to work longer and harder, just to maintain the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat.
On the other hand, spray foam expands as it is sprayed into place. This expansion is what creates an air-tight seal between the exterior and interior of your home. The more air that is lost, the harder your heating and cooling systems have to work to keep up. By sealing any cracks or crevices that air can escape through, your utilities can run more efficiently.
If you notice that it takes a while to heat or cool your home, your AC might not be to blame! Poor insulation may be the culprit and can cause your utilities to cost more than they should.
