Top 10 Benefits Of Spray Foam Insulation For Your Home

benefits of spray foam insulation

Spray foam insulation is an innovative insulation product that’s been featured on Grand Designs, as a breakthrough in heating the home.

However, spray foam insulation is multi-functional, and has a vast range of benefits once installed.

Here we list the top 10 ways spray foam insulation can benefit your home for the long-term…

1 Promoting A Warm, Comfortable Temperature

Spray foam insulation forms an impressively airtight seal, protecting the home within, against the onslaught of the elements outside.

This blocks air flow and thermal conductivity, meaning that heat is trapped within the insulated area, and cannot flow out… and cold air from outside can’t enter!

2 Lowering Energy Bills

Spray foam insulation lowers the requirement for heating and cooling within the home, cutting back on the expense of ever-rising energy bills.

Existing customers with spray foam insulation fitted in their home report savings on their household expenditure on heating of up to 40%!

3 Improving Energy Efficiency

The decreased need for continuous heating and cooling in the home reduces the energy usage, and therefore improves its efficiency.

In the UK, a property must be assessed and graded for an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) when being put up for sale or rent, and in these circumstances, the grading will be improved as a result of having spray foam insulation installed.

4 Blocking Damp From Entering The Home

Unlike more traditional products, spray foam insulation does not absorb moisture: preventing damp from filtering through into your walls and roof.

5 Preventing Mould From Growing

Once spray foam insulation has been installed, and the interior is bone dry, mould is unable to find a suitable surface to grow on.

6 Improving Air Quality

The lack of appropriate surfaces for mould and damp to fester within, and the seal against dust and dirt from passing through, promotes a cleaner and healthier air quality in the insulated property.

This is of particular benefit to those who suffer from breathing conditions, such as asthma, which are exacerbated by airborne allergens.

7 Soundproofing

Spray foam insulation’s open cell structure also help to block airborne sound from entering the insulated space, as it is held in the cells, and unable to travel any further.

Independent testing of the acoustic capabilities of spray foam insulation has proven it to surpass the levels expected for new construction, and greatly reduce the levels of noise from outside.

8 Keeping Out Pests

With spray foam insulation providing such a superior seal, there’s no entry points for unwanted visitors such as termites, mice or rats to come into the home.

Spray foam insulation also doesn’t degrade or break down as it ages, so won’t become a tasty treat for such pests.

9 Supporting The Structure Of Your Building

In the case of areas of a property requiring structural support, the density of spray foam insulation can be increased, to offer additional support to the structure.

If you own an older home, that this can be of particular benefit, saving you from costly renovations later on.

10 Reclaiming Loft Space

Old-fashioned insulation products line the flooring of your attic or loft space, sometimes up to 10-inches thick; taking up valuable space, and rendering the room above it cold and unusable.

Spray foam insulation, however, is applied directly to the ceiling, so the whole room is insulated to a comfortable temperature, enabling you to reclaim the room, and use it as a proper living space once more.
