If you are looking to redo the insulation in your home, spray foam insulation is something worth learning more about. This type of insulation is on the costly side, but the benefits of it make up for the higher cost in the long run. Here are 3 benefits of spray foam insulation.
- When you use spray foam insulation, the foam expands and seals up all the tiny cracks that may be hard to fill with other types of insulation. When you insulate your home, it can be difficult to get into all the tiny cracks and crevices in each space. This type of insulation helps to block out the cold and helps to hold heat, therefore, cutting down on your energy bill.
- Using spray foam insulation will help you minimize on allergens and prevent those with allergies from suffering. Allergens find their way into your home through your walls, not always through the windows like you might think. You will also be able to avoid pests as well since spray foam insulation is not an ideal habitat for rodents and other pests.
- Spray foam insulation lasts longer than other insulation options. Styrofoam and fiberglass sag and/or break over time and don’t stand up against harsh weather conditions well. Spray foam expands and forms itself to the space and then hardens and doesn’t budge. This allows you to go several years without having to worry about replacing your insulation.
As you can see, there are some great benefits to spray foam insulation and the cost upfront seems small in comparison to what you will be saving in the long run. If you are ready to get spray foam insulation installed in your home, call us at 31-W Insulation to schedule your appointment today.
