One of the most effective ways to protect your home from the Sunbelt’s year round harsh hot and humid temperatures is spray foam insulation. When your home is well insulated with spray foam, your HVAC equipment doesn’t need to work nearly as hard, and as a result of this saving you money on your energy bills. Some of the benefits, and how it saves you money are the reduction of your home’s energy costs by up to 50%, the prevention of mold growth, and can make the strength of your homes’ structure stronger.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic to just leave your thermostat at a comfortable temperature all year long? When foam insulation is sprayed into your home an airtight seal is created. This delivers a consistent climate throughout your home ensuring both the comfort and efficiency of your investment throughout the entire year.
Also, by sealing your home with spray home insulation you not only keep out pesky rodents and insects you also reduce the penetration of outdoor allergens, pollutants, and moisture which negatively affect indoor air quality. Protecting your family’s quality of indoor air is crucial to their good health. An excess of 40% of American households have at least one person suffering from asthma or allergies directly related to mold, mildew, and allergens inside a home based on findings done by the American Lung Association.
Spray foam insulation can add an additional 75% to 200% structure strength to your home according to the Nation Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The density and hardness of the closed cell spray foam insulation acts as a glue, therefore increasing the strength of your structure’s walls by holding it all together. This additional layer of protection and sturdiness can increase the value of your home too. As it’s a long-term investment everyone should consider it no matter if your home is new or old.
