Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
The secret to energy efficiency is simple: Keep the outside air out, and the inside air in. Unfortunately, air can travel through even the smallest cracks, holes, or seams. Creating an air tight barrier with spray foam virtually eliminates the largest source of energy loss in the average home-the 30 to 40% typically lost through air leakage.
Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation, sprayfoam immediately expands to fill every crack and crevice and doesn't shrink, settle, or sag over time.
High density closed cell foam sprayed inside your stud walls fully adheres to both the exterior sheathing and the studs which ties them together as one creating a monolithic wall barrier (one single uniform structure). This type of structure actually strengthens the framing of your house reducing wall movement due to wind, vibration, and occupant activity.
Not only does spray foam prevent air from flowing in and out it also minimizes pollutants, allergens, and pests from penetrating your home. Since spray foam acts as an air and moisture barrier it helps to reduce moisture infiltration which inhibits the growth of mold and bacteria. So breathe easier knowing sprayfoam is in your home.
Spray foam is an effective barrier against noise pollution. Gaco wall foam is proven to decrease exterior noise by up to 20 decibels, reducing sound transfer through the roof, floors, and walls. Spray foam has the potential to make your home up to 75% quieter.
Spray foam insulation provides efficient building envelopes, thermal comfort, and a healthy living environment; all of which are integral components of green building and design. Having a more energy efficient home reduces energy consumption and reliance on fossil fuels.
