What are the benefits of spray foam insulation?
The immediate and long-term benefits of spray foam insulation far outweigh the initial costs associated with installation. This insulating and air sealing material provides endless benefits. By investing in spray foam insulation you will:
➠ Make significant heating and cooling savings every month, in some cases by up to 50%!
➠ Improve your home’s energy efficiency by using your HVAC equipment less often thanks to spray foam’s air sealing qualities
➠ ‘Right-size’ your HVAC equipment because it uses less effort to heat and cool your home
➠ Add resale value to your home should you choose to sell
➠ Reduce amount of allergens, pollutants and moisture entering your home
➠ Reduce danger of respiratory distress and chance of mould growth
➠ Help improve indoor air quality, ideal for allergy sufferers
➠ Keep you and your family warm in winter, cool in summer and comfortable all year round
➠ Reduce the risk of drafts, hot or cold spots
➠ Minimise airborne noise from external sources and noise from within your home (such as plumbing runs)
➠ Protect your home against mould and mould growth
➠ Avoid pests and critters living and nesting in your home
