Benefits of Using Spray Foam Insulation

 

Top Benefits to Using Spray Foam to Insulate Your Winnipeg Home

 

Spray foam insulation is manufactured using two different types of composite materials. The two different types are isocyanate and polyurethane. When you combine these two materials together they react with each other by expanding and then hardening. The installation process consists of simultaneously spraying these two materials with a spray foam gun. This will allow the spray foam insulation to provide a protective layer over any desired area.

Some of the benefits of using this type of insulation are that it is a powerful insulator, provides an airtight seal, provides incredible energy savings, is a great moisture barrier, deters mold, is environmentally friendly, and has a very long lifespan. These seven benefits provide the major reason why many homeowners choose this type of insulation over others.

For example, due to the fact that this insulation expands and hardens it provides a tight seal everywhere including small crannies and nooks. Other types of insulation, on the other hand, would leave these small areas exposed. Spray foam insulation has a 6 rating which is the highest rating for providing an airtight seal. Air leaks are typically the number one reason for a high energy bill. A spray foam insulated home is able to provide a powerful airtight seal that has proven to be more than 24 times better than other types of insulation in regards to permeable air infiltration.

Many individual homeowners and business owners have realized huge savings when it comes to their energy bills. Spray foam insulation can provide up to 50% energy savings in comparison to other types of insulation. It also will be beneficial for deterring mold because it is water resistant. There is no food source for bacteria or mold growth.

Spray foam insulation also provides an excellent moisture barrier. It will not allow air or moisture to enter into your crawl space or attic through cracks or holes. Other types of insulation cannot compare when considering spray foam insulation as a moisture barrier. It is impermeable to water and therefore if your home is ever subjected to a major water leakage or flood then you will not need to be concerned about the spray foam insulation absorbing the water.

Spray foam insulation also has a very long lifespan. In fact, it is almost indefinite. This fact alone will save the businessman or the homeowner a tremendous amount of money because they will not need to re-insulate down the road. Finally, spray foam insulation is environmentally friendly. It helps to reduce energy consumption, protects against mold growth and moisture, and is designed to last for a very long time which means that fewer materials will need to be produced.
