Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Attic insulation creates an impenetrable seal that fills nooks and crannies where air leaks. These small holes and cracks are a major cause of high energy bills, and spray foam insulation closes them to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

It reduces the workload on your HVAC system. Almost half of a home’s energy consumption goes to heating and cooling it, so maximizing your HVAC efficiency is key to savings. Spray foam helps to prevent heat transfer, which cuts the workload on your system and lowers your energy bills.

Increases your home’s R-value. Unlike other types of insulation, spray foam has an R-value that doesn’t degrade over time. The more R-value you have, the higher your energy efficiency.

Spray Foam Insulation Installation: What to Expect from Advanced Seal

Spray foam contains polyurethane and isocyanates. Isocyanates are powerful eye irritants and can affect gastrointestinal and respiratory systems if inhaled or touched. To limit the exposure to these chemicals, spray foam is formed on-site by combining two liquids. When mixed and sprayed onto surfaces, the chemicals react and expand to form the insulation.

The insulation industry is working with lenders and valuers to help them understand the benefits of spray foam insulation. The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommends checking with your local spray foam installer to make sure they are fully qualified and certified. This will prevent problems in the future, and a potential dispute with a valuer or lender. If you do find yourself in a disagreement with a valuer or lender, there are specialist independent reports available that will help resolve the issue.
