Still not convinced? Here are some other reasons why we love spray foam insulation.
Hard-to-insulate areas are a thing of the past.
When you use spray foam, homes or building designs that have creative architectural features like arches, cathedral, domed or vaulted ceilings no longer pose insulation challenges. Rim joists that support floors are notoriously hard to insulate with conventional methods, leading to cold/warm spots and higher energy bills. Spray foam insulation creates an air barrier by filling all gaps, sticks to surrounding materials and delivers ideal R-value all in one step. It’s also ideal for steel-framed homes because it expands to fill allspaces that exist between metal stud wall systems. That beats conventional insulation hands-down.
Hello insulation efficiency – goodbye leakage and high energy bills.
Up to 40% of a home’s energy is lost through uncontrolled air leakage. Openings around plumbing, vents and electrical service entries are responsible for 17% of that. Conventional insulation (fiberglass or cellulose) doesn’t do a good job of stopping air leaks because it sags and settles over time. Whether your warm air is leaking out your house, or cold air and drafts are entering your home, don’t let poor-quality insulation waste your energy and cause discomfort, moisture and air quality issues. Spray foam insulation – combined with weather stripping, plastic window film and caulking – can create powerful barriers and seal gaps for a whole-home solution that prevents your hard-earned money from leaking away.
Moisture in your house leads to damage, increased costs and reduced air quality.
Moisture moves through the walls of your home by air, so insulation that controls air movement can help manage moisture and create a healthier home. Moisture builds up inside a home through daily activities like cooking and showering. If hot, humid air is trapped in a home, your air conditioner works harder to remove humidity, increasing cooling costs. Excess moisture not adequately removed can lead to mold issues. We recommend a combination of spray foam insulation to create an air barrier to stop condensation on inside walls, along with ventilation to bring in fresh air to help get rid of excess moisture.
Older building or home? Update easily with new technology.
Over our four decades in the business, Sunny South Insulators has developed innovative ways of injecting spray foam into older buildings with hard-to-access nooks and crannies. Homeowners reap the benefit of increased insulation R-value at a much lower cost than completing a full-scale renovation. Spray foam reduces energy costs, enhances sound proofing, improves indoor air quality and won’t damage existing walls.
