The benefits to a professionally insulated home are numerous and involve huge cost savings. However, most homeowners are not fully aware of what they may be missing out on and perhaps how poor insulation can actually harm the home. We’ve taken the time to list out most of the benefits that come along with a properly insulated home below.
If you have any questions - please do not hesitate to give us a call. We will be happy to help educate or consult on the benefits that you will reap with a professionally insulated home.
Did you know that a non-insulated house can lose over 60% of its energy through its walls and attic? This energy loss typically accounts for about 15% of your annual energy expenditure. Insulation helps achieve energy savings by eliminating cracks and crevices that result in leaking air in and out of your home allowing thermal control to be achieved with less effort from your HVAC unit.
Improved Air Quality
By eliminating air penetration into your home or business - spray foam insulation prevents foreign particles including allergens and pollen from entering your home. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies - professionally installed insulation can help provide them relief and help save you money on medical expenses.
Improved Structural Integrity
Spray foam insulation in particular can help strengthen the home because it’s density increases the load bearing ability of your walls and ceilings. Thus, the insulation can actually make your home up to three times more robust and durable. This is especially important for our area as we are subject to hurricanes.
Spray foam insulation has another incredible benefit in its ability to reduce noise pollution naturally. This results in decreased sound bleeding through the interior walls of your home - thus reducing noises heard between rooms. Additionally, if you live near a busy roadway - the noise pollution from the traffic will be significantly reduced - which is something that most of our customers are extremely pleased with.
Reduced Water Damage
Damage from water intrusion caused by weather is significantly reduced with spray foam insulation. The insulation provides a strong protective barrier against water and moisture - effectively reducing your annual maintenance cost on your home or business.
Pest and Insect Elimination
A professionally insulated home eliminates all of the access points that pests and insects take advantage of to enter your home. The material is durable and resistant to chewing and scratching from any pests - significantly reducing the possibility of any rodent infestation.
