Top 3 Benefits of Spray Foam InsulationThere are many benefits to using spray foam insulation; however, the top three are likely these: Energy Savings, Comfort, and Air Quality.

Energy Savings

Energy savings is two-fold with spray foam insulation.  First, a better insulated home keeps the outside temperatures from coming inside and the inside temperatures from seeping outside.  This reduces your need to constantly run your air conditioner or heater, thus reducing your energy costs.  In peak seasons, like long, hot Louisiana summers, the savings can be 40 percent!  In addition to saving money on your energy costs, you are reducing your energy consumption.  So, there’s your two-fold savings: you save some green, and you keep the earth a little more green!

Comfort

Comfort is probably near the top of everyone’s list of priorities for their home—right beside safety and beauty.  A comfortable living environment can be the difference between home being a soothing, stress-relieving place and an additional stressor in one’s life.  Climate control is one way to make your home more comfortable.  We have discussed the cost effectiveness of spray foam insulation, but what about the sheer comfort of a constant temperature?  This is also vital to the workplace.  Keeping your customers and employees comfortable is just as important.  Spray foam allows your home or business to have an additional layer of protection, an additional buffer between the indoors and the world outside.  Thicker walls, and a better insulated attic can help you maintain a consistently comfortable temperature in your home or business.

Air Quality

Air quality is important to most of us, but those with allergies or a concern with the many pollutants that can be found in the air will be pleased to know that, in addition to saving energy and providing a comfortable environment, spray foam can improve the air quality of a home or business.  By sealing off cracks and crevices found in many attics and crawlspaces, spray foam prevents impurities, dust, and dirt from reaching your home or businesses’ ventilation systems.  These same sealing properties can prevent environmental allergens from infiltrating spaces.  This allows for a healthier and improved air quality.
