Is Spray Foam Insulation Worth the investment?

Regardless of whether you’re having a new home built right now, or are living in an older home that needs a bit of work, the fact is, there is always an added, and unexpected, cost. Very few families are flush with extra cash these days, so choosing to spend on something for your home that has a higher upfront cost may not seem like the right thing to do. It might help, though, to take a look at the bigger picture.

It can often be tempting to purchase a less expensive product that can temporarily fix whatever issue you might be facing; however, there is good reason to make room in your budget for the investment in a superior quality product, like Icynene spray foam insulation, right from the start.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the right insulation solution for your home.  One consideration  would include the insulation’s capability to fill any gaps or tiny holes. Icynene spray foam insulation can create an air seal on your home, so that problems such as drafts and air leakage can be greatly improved upon. 

In addition, the air barrier created by spray foam insulation like Icynene can also help to reduce airborne irritants such as dust and pollen, which can contribute to helping improve surrounds for allergy sufferers. As well, choosing an insulation which can help dampen airborne sound transmission can help you to enjoy a quieter home environment. 

Finally, an insulation product that is able to reject bulk water can benefit homeowners that live in areas that are prone to flooding or hurricanes or in homes with a basement. The long-term benefits of installing closed-cell spray foam insulation in your home that can help minimize flooding and water damage is in everyone’s best interest. The costs (and headaches) associated with fixing a home with flooding or extensive water damage can far outweigh the upfront cost of high quality spray foam insulation like Icynene.

Icynene spray foam insulation can help address all of these issues in your home, whether it’s in the process of being built, or whether you’ve been living in it for many years. It makes sense to divert a portion of your budget to an investment that can truly benefit your home and family, in the long-term. That’s what is amazing about Icynene spray foam insulation: the money that can be saved on your monthly heating and cooling bills can see your investment paying for itself in as little as 3 years! Doesn’t that sound like an investment you should be setting money aside for?
