TOP 5 REASONS TO USE SPRAY FOAM INSULATION
The secret to energy-efficiency is simple... keep the outside air out, and the inside air in.
Unfortunately, air can travel through even the smallest cracks, holes, or seams. Even with traditional fiberglass insulation, air easily passes through the spaces between the wall studs and the insulation batts, reducing the effective R-value of the assembly. It's building science that fiberglass looses 50% of it's effectiveness when a 4% void is present. A 4% void is present in nearly every cut/altered piece of fiberglass. Premium Spray Foam Insulation has no seams or cracks because it immediately expands to fill every nook and cranny. Premium Spray Foam Insulation doesn't shrink, settle, or sag over time, the air seal advantage continues to provide energy savings year after year.
The same Premium Spray Foam air seal that prevents air from flowing in and out works equally hard at preventing outdoor pollutants, such as smog and pollen from penetrating your home.Not to mention PESTS and RODENTS! Also, because Premium Foam Insulation creates a seamless moisture barrier, it inhibits the growth of mold and bacteria. With a fresh air system installed into your home you can be breathing clean air and still feel like every window is open. All that adds up to a safer, healthier home for you and your family.
There are obvious long-term benefits that come from having a more energy efficient home, including reduced gas and oil consumption with the hopes of limiting our reliance on fossil fuels. In addition, the added structural integrity that Premium Spray Foam provides will result in a longer lasting home and won't require insulation upgrades, which creates debris for landfills. Plus, the application of Premium Spray Foam Insulation is a cleaner process than other insulation materials, meaning a smaller mess, less waste, and no resulting depletion of the ozone layer.
Not only does Premium Spray Foam Insulation create a barrier to keep the air out, it also keeps noise out, thanks to millions of semi-rigid cells that absorb sound waves originating from outside your home. Premium Spray Foam Insulation is proven to decrease exterior noise by up to 20 decibels. Because our perception of noise levels double every 10 decibels, Premium Spray Foam Insulation has the potential to make your home up to 75% quieter.
When Premium Spray Foam Insulation is sprayed into the wall cavity of a home, it's two liquid components become chemically bonded, creating a rigid plastic-like material that ties the studs and the exterior sheathing together as one. In technical terms, this is called a monolithic wall barrier, because there are no gaps or voids- only one single uniform structure. That structure actually strengthens the structure of your house, providing added protection against the elements and increasing the longevity of your home.
