Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. The Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling (space conditioning) accounts for approximately 56% of the energy used in the typical American home. Roughly one third of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors.
Adding an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance. Spray foam insulation (polyurethane foam) is that advanced insulation system. Air exchange in and out of a home results in the mechanical systems heating and cooling the building to coninuously operate, increasing energy costs. Spray foam insulation can maximize a home buyer's investment by sealing the building to stop conditioned air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering the home.
Unlike traditional insulation, spray foam does not sag, settle, shrink or deteriorate over time ensuring lasting peak performance. Spray applied, cavities of any shape are filled providing a continuous air barrier that stays in place. Restricting air movement also stops moisture accumulation so that the possibility of mold growth is less likely. Reducing moisture and controlling humidity can add years to the life expectancy of a home as well as contribute to a healthier indoor environment.
