If it’s time to add or replace insulation, you may feel overwhelmed with options. Insulation is imperative to the efficiency of your home, and even adds some protection to it as well. It’s important to make sure you are choosing both the right type of insulation for your needs and an experienced contractor to install it for you.
One type of insulation with many benefits is spray foam. When you need spray foam insulation in Minneapolis, the experts at Lewis Insulation have you covered! In the meantime, here are some common benefits of using spray foam insulation in your home.
1. Noise Reduction
When building a home in a close neighborhood, it’s hard to know what kind of neighbors you’ll actually be getting. While we all hope for nice, friendly and quiet neighbors, we also know that’s not always the case.
Luckily, spray foam insulation can significantly reduce noise, allowing you to enjoy your new neighborhood, even if your neighbors are a little noisier than you would have liked.
2. Cooling and Heating Efficiency
Due to the nature of spray foam insulation, it is able to get into small cracks and crevices unlike other types of insulation. When applied, spray foam expands and dries, blocking air and water from entering through the cracks.
When air is blocked from sneaking in through little cracks in your home, you can improve your heating and cooling efficiency! In the summer, hot air will have a harder time getting in, just as cold air will struggle in the winter.
3. Fewer Allergens
When those same small cracks and crevices are sealed, fewer allergens such as pollen are able to make it into your home. This allows you to survive the curse of seasonal allergies easier! Plus, your guests will feel more welcomed and comfortable in a home that doesn’t make them sneeze non-stop
4. Bug and Pest Prevention
Yet again, another benefit of filling small cracks in your home with spray foam insulation is preventing access to bugs and pests. An infestation of mice or bugs can quickly become an even bigger problem due to damage they may cause within your home.
Spray foam insulation can block their access, allowing you peace of mind and money saved that would have previously been spent on pest control.
5. Mold Prevention
Spray foam insulation prevents moisture from leaking into your home through the outside walls and roof by sealing up cracks. This prevention of moisture also prevents the growth of mold and mildew in your walls.
By stopping the water leaking through walls, spray foam insulation can help prevent health issues caused by exposure to mold or mildew over time.
6. Environmentally Friendly
The incorporation of spray foam insulation into your home reduces energy consumption of your home by reducing the amount of cooling or heating required to combat the outside air sneaking in. By making your home more efficient, you are making it more environmentally friendly.
Plus, spray foam insulation is a long-term solution for insulation as it lasts longer than other types. This allows for fewer materials to be used over time in your home, reducing waste.
