Kansas and Missouri are known for their extreme temperatures. It's very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. This simply means that having a well-insulated house should be a high priority for most home owners. There are a variety of benefits to having a well-insulated home, and little to no disadvantages. Those benefits are increased even more if you choose to use a polyurethane spray foam to insulate your home. KC Spray Foam can help you there. We have an experienced team of professionals who will help you insulate your home. Call us today to learn more about our company.
When it comes to spray foam insulation and insulation in general there are a ton of benefits, both short and long term. Some of these benefits include:
High R-value: Closed cell spray foam has the highest R-value available. The higher the R-value, the more resistant it is to the movement of heat. In other words, it is the best insulator out there. Open cell spray foam is also a great insulator. The more common fiberglass insulation is not as powerful when it comes to protecting your home from the outside temperature.
Space Saver: Fiberglass is a very common insulator, but it actually takes up tons of space and does not work as well as spray foam. Spray foam takes up much less space and is a better insulator. There is no specific measurement, but most layers of spray foam are going to be about three inches, much less than fiberglass insulation. It will depend on where the spray foam is being applied, but that is a common thickness.
Saves Energy: Spray foam insulation keeps your home's temperature stable. It doesn't let anything in and it also doesn't let anything out. You will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Most see 40% or more in savings. In the long run, you will save tons of money. You won't be paying as much on your energy bill every month, so the spray foam pays for itself, quickly.
Overall, spray foam is the clear choice when it comes to insulation. Not only will you be more comfortable year round, you will be saving money at the same time. And what's great about spray foam is that it can be used almost everywhere. Roofs, attics, garages, walls, basements; the list goes on and on. The only time it might not be able to be used is around a fireplace or water tank. Spray foam is flammable, but can be installed with an ignition barrier, which keeps it safe from flame. When closed cell spray foam is installed, it is done so very quickly, and it lasts a lifetime.
Spray foam is definitely worth the investment. It's eco-friendly, an energy saver, a great insulator, and a money saver.
