Residential Insulation: Why Choose Spray Foam
Compared to traditional fiberglass or cellulose insulation, spray foam renders many benefits for homeowners in the Kansas City area.
Fiberglass insulation is used in about 85% of American homes, as it is the most affordable type of insulation. However, it is extremely less efficient, and can cost you more money in energy bills in the long run. Spray foam insinuation is continuing to increase in popularity as more and more homeowners are realizing the incredible advantages that it has for their home.
Here are some of the main reasons homeowners all over the Midwest and beyond are choosing to install spray foam insulation in their homes:
Prevents Air Leakage
The US Department of Energy shows that 40% of a home’s energy is lost as the result of air infiltration through a home’s walls, windows and doors. Spray foam insulation can insulate 50% better than traditional home insulation products. If you’re ready to get rid of the drafts in your home, spray foam insulation is for you!
Increases Energy Efficiency
Spray foam insulation is a worthwhile investment as it can save you hundreds of dollars on energy bills over time. Many of our customers are amazed at how much their heating and cooling expenses reduced after installing spray foam insulation. The airtight and heavy duty foam expands to fill every space in your walls, providing a fantastic insulating barrier that no other type of insulation can offer.
R-Value measures the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. Spray foam insulation has a high R-Value which does not decrease over time.
Lasts a Lifetime
While fiberglass insulation only lasts 10 – 25 years (if not damaged by water), spray foam insulation will last 80+ years. You won’t have to ever replace it in your lifetime!
Adds Structural Integrity
Closed cell spray foam can add up to 250% racking strength to your walls and roof! The foam will stay permanently in place and will not shrink or sag over time. Spray foam is a fantastic way to add structural strength to your building.
Keeps Out Dust and Pollen
Households with members that suffer from allergies will greatly benefit from spray foam insulation, as it keeps pollen and dust out of your home. Increase the air quality of your home with spray foam insulation.
Reduces Wear of HVAC
With a well insulated home, your HVAC systems won’t have to work very hard at all. Spray foam insulation will increase the longevity of all of your HVAC units.
Strong Sound Barrier
Spray foam insulation creates a fantastic sound barrier, keeping out noise from outside and from other rooms around the house.
