7 benefits of spray foam insulation for your home in Missouri

There are many different types of insulation you can use for your home. From batts and rolls to foam board to spray foam and beyond, it can be a challenge to try to decide which is best for your home. At St. Louis Insulation, we can help narrow down your choices for you by providing some benefits of installing spray foam insulation in your home in Missouri.

Reduces noise

One of the most significant benefits of spray foam insulation over other options is that it will greatly reduce the amount of noise that comes into your home. When it’s installed, the foam fills the entire space where it’s being applied, which creates a noise-dampening effect that prevents sound waves from traveling through the walls. The noise-reducing effects of foam insulation can be noticed from the outside of your home and from room to room if you’d like.

Easy installation

Some forms of insulation installation require the installer to take off large sections of your drywall to place the insulation directly into the framing sections of your walls. Spray foam is easily installed by using a spray foam gun to get the material into your walls or your crawl space. The process can be completed any time of the year as the foam dries quickly.

Deters moisture

Small openings in pipes, vents, and walls can allow moisture to seep in areas of your home where bacteria and rot are a problem. Spray foam creates a tight seal that won’t allow moisture to accumulate, so it prevents mold from developing on the wood framing of your home. Rot and mold can cost thousands of dollars to get rid of and repair the damage it’s caused.

Prevents pests

Pets are experts at finding the tiniest of openings and making their way into your house. Rats, mice, termites, and ants are not only annoying, but they bring disease and cause wreak havoc on your home. Spray foam insulation is great at filling the smallest cracks and crevices with a strong barrier. You won’t have to worry about these critters getting into your house and eating your food, damaging the wood structure, and getting you sick.

Increases structural integrity

Once spray foam insulation dries, it’s incredibly hard and dense. Its density can strengthen your walls and roof to help protect them from heavy wind loads, heavy snow, and earthquakes. Spray foam also acts like glue as it adheres directly to whatever surfaces it’s applied to, which can be beneficial and provide a temporary seal should your walls ever sustain any damage.

Improves energy efficiency

There has to be some level of airflow through your home to keep it from getting stuffy. However, too much airflow will cause your heating and cooling bills to skyrocket. Spray foam is a great way to prevent conditioned air from escaping through small cracks in the walls or near windows. You’ll find that your HVAC system doesn’t run nearly as often as it did before installing spray foam insulation, which will help to reduce your overall energy costs.

Better air quality

Pollen, dust, and smoke can get into your home even when your windows are closed. Spray foam insulation is a great solution to this problem because it can tightly seal any openings that allow unwanted particles into your home. Those with allergies or breathing conditions will feel much better as their condition won’t be exacerbated by foreign particles entering the home.
