How Spray Foam Insulation Can Cut Down Your Utility Bills

Energy use can be decreased in a home that has been spray foam insulated and sealed. Since the entire house is more energy efficient, this is true both in the winter and the summer. Simply put, increased energy efficiency results in lower energy use and, thus, lower utility costs. Homeowners can cut costs on summer cooling and winter heating.

Optimize Energy Efficiency with Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation installation is one of the best methods To improve home energy efficiency. Spray foam will simultaneously ensure airtightness and thermal protection. It will stop air leakage from wasting all heated (in the winter) and cooled (in the summer) air.

The “building envelope” of a house always has air leaks, including in the attic, roof, and basement foundation walls. Air leakage must be stopped to reduce energy use, and spray foam insulation can help. 

Reduce air leakage with spray foam insulation

The best air sealing and thermal insulation are possible with spray foam installation. A home with spray foam insulation will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It will increase air circulation, minimize energy use, and improve indoor comfort. Spray foam also regulates the movement of air moisture, lowering the likelihood of moisture-related problems.

Spray foam insulation, when correctly done, offers an airtight environment that does not require the installation of a separate vapor barrier. This prevents pockets of moisture from building up and the circulation of moisture in the air. Better humidity control results in more comfortable (and healthier) indoor living conditions both in the winter and the summer.

Optimizing energy efficiency is the goal while using spray foam. A quality installation will improve the HVAC system’s balance and allow it to run more efficiently year-round. The initial spray foam installation expense can sometimes be “paid down” in many homes through annual savings on heating and cooling.

Residential spray foam installation is a specialty of skilled technicians at BMC SPRAY FOAM. Every application adheres to the manufacturer’s guidelines, and every product is installed in accordance with the code.

Moisture Barrier

Holes and cracks in walls and crawl spaces can allow ingress to more than just air. Water and moisture can gain access to these areas through exposed cracks and holes if not sealed. Spray foam insulation is impermeable to water. This means that it not only thoroughly seals and protects the interior from airborne moisture and leaks, but it will not absorb the water like other materials in the event of flooding.

More Comfortable

Most of your home’s energy costs are related to temperature control. Heating and cooling a home is expensive. If your insulation isn’t creating the best barrier, you’re not only spending more than you should, your home isn’t as comfortable as it could be.

Spray foam insulation will better regulate the indoor temperature no matter the weather, while also reducing your monthly expenses.  Your HVAC unit will not have to work as hard to heat your home in the winter and keep it cool in the summer.

Security and Durability

Spray foam insulation provides superior protection in comparison to conventional insulation. It can shift and flex, allowing it to adjust as a home settles over time. It is also better equipped to deal with humidity, rain, and wind, all of which can be damaging.

Spray foam insulation has a fire suppressant mixed in, allowing it not just to reduce the risk of fire spreading but potentially decrease the chances of a structure catching fire in the first place.
