While keeping your Opelika, Alabama home comfortable is one of the most essential things during the warmer and colder months of the year, your second largest concern may be the costs of your energy bills. You may have tried numerous tips to help reduce your overall energy costs, but what might truly be the culprit, is a lack of proper insulation. If this is the case in your home, spray foam can be the perfect solution to improve your energy bills.
It Can Create a Barrier Against Moisture
Cracks, crevices around windows and doors, and small holes in the walls and roof of your home can allow moisture to come in, ruining the air quality and comfort of your home. With spray insulation, you will be filling holes and sealing cracks, forming a barrier that is impenetrable to water.
It Has a Longer Lifespan
Typical insulation will break down over time and loose efficiency. Spray foam can last for many years, often the life of the building. Additionally, the foam does not break down over time, giving you efficient insulation without having to upgrade or reinstall.
It Can Save You Money
The initial cost of spray foam can be an investment if you need to fill the walls or coat the walls and ceiling of an attic or crawl space. The good news is that you will see a dramatic reduction in the cost of your energy bills which will offset the cost of installing it. The Department of Energy estimates 50% less energy use when spray foam insulation is in a home.
It Is Environmentally Friendly
If you are interested in doing your part to reduce the carbon footprint of your household, you will be excited to know that spray foam insulation not only reduces energy use in your home, but it also can last indefinitely. This means the foam will never end up in a landfill.
Whether you are looking for an environmentally friendly insulation option, one that is more energy efficient, or one that will last forever, spray foam insulation fits the bill.
