Spray foam insulation is growing in popularity among homeowners, and for good reason. There are many benefits to choosing spray foam insulation for their home renovations and construction projects. Spray On Systems in Winnipeg share reasons why more people are choosing spray foam:
It can be installed almost anywhere
Spray foam applies as a more liquid-based material to cover any holes or cracks that may expose your home to unwanted airflow. It can go in small, awkward spaces, and then it expands to fill the voids and hard-to-reach corners. This means it’s easy to install anywhere in your home. This includes walls, ceilings, crawl spaces, attics, floors, basements, and garages. With other insulation materials and methods, insulating these awkward spaces can be a challenge. This is one of many benefits to spray foam insulation.
Spray foam has a high R-value
The R-value of insulation indicates how well it prevents airflow. The industry determines R-value by how thick, dense, and type of material used to insulate your home. A higher R-value is especially important for cold spaces, such as basements, attics, ceilings, or exterior walls.
Open-cell spray foam has an R-value of about 3.6 per inch. Closed-cell spray foam has an R-value of about 6-6.5 per inch. Spray On Systems will provide the open-cell, or 1/2 pound spray foam, in certain applications. Most of the time, they recommend you use the closed-cell, 2-pound spray foam, for the best thermal performance.
Spray foam saves you money in more ways than one
When you compare it to fibreglass insulation, spray foam might be more expensive in some applications. However, since the installation process is faster, you’ll be spending less on labour and installation. It’ll also save you money in the long run on your energy bills and acts as an insulator and moisture barrier in one product. Spray foam insulation is worth the investment and will provide long-term energy savings and home comfort for years to come.
Spray foam is environmentally-friendly
With Spray foam, you can reduce your home’s carbon footprint because your heating and cooling system will not have to work so hard to maintain temperature. Its superior thermal performance means less escaped and wasted energy use. Also, because of its longevity, you won’t have to replace spray foam as often as alternative insulation materials. That means less material in the landfill over time.
