4 Advantages of Spray Foam Insulation

September 13, 2017 adamb@evidently.com

There are numerous advantages of spray foam insulation that you’ve likely heard about: energy efficiency, help in reducing drafts, but there are several lesser-known benefits that are sometimes overlooked.

  1. Spray foam insulation can help dampen airborne sound transmission. What does this mean for you? It means you’re more likely to be able to fall asleep in peace, while your teenager stays up late playing video games in the basement.
  2. Spray foam insulation can help play a role in reducing the amount of common allergens that can enter your home. By creating an effective air seal wherever it is applied, spray foam insulation like Icynene can help to reduce the amount of pollen and dust that can enter the home through small gaps and holes in your home.
  3. Spray foam insulation can help you “right size” your HVAC equipment. You may be wondering why you’d want to buy entirely new heating and cooling systems, but if it could mean lowering your monthly heating and cooling bills, because your new equipment doesn’t require as much energy to run, wouldn’t you do it?
  4. Spray foam insulation can help reduce the chances of your home being damaged from flooding. FEMA has rated closed cell insulation like Icynene as a flood-resistant material, thanks to its ability to reject bulk water.
