When you purchase a home, you're probably thinking about price, location, and the number of bedrooms. Spray foam insulation is probably the last thing on your mind. However, new and existing homeowners alike often don't realize just how many benefits spray foam insulation can bring to their Kittitas County homes. From helping keep pests at bay to reducing your electric bills, the benefits of this type of insulation are endless.

Spray Foam Insulation Is The Most Energy Efficient

Spray foam insulation combines the chemicals isocyanate and polyol resin. These two chemicals react on contact with each other, expanding to anywhere from 30 to 60 times their liquid volume by the time they become solid.

This solid barrier forms itself to whatever mold it's inside as it expands. This means the liquid foam expands into cracks and holes that standard insulation can only lay on top of or cover. Spray foam insulation fills these small air leaks to create an airtight seal.

This is much better for your heating and cooling system because it isn't constantly working to cool or heat air that leaks in from outside. Not only can spray foam insulation reduce your monthly energy bills, but it can also extend the life of your climate control system by helping it work less.

Keeps Noise Out And Comfortable Air In

Along those same lines, you'll also notice the temperature in your home is more constant. Spray foam insulation can help reduce temperature inconsistencies from room to room and floor to floor. It can also help reduce the temperature fluctuations inside your home by keeping the cooled or heated air where it belongs for longer. This means fewer temperature drops or rises before your HVAC kicks on.

Spray foam insulation also helps block noise from the outside. Because it fills in gaps in a way that standard insulation does not, it can block street and neighborhood noise in a way that standard insulation cannot.

Blocks Problematic Pests And Moisture

Moisture control is another area where homeowners in Kittitas County can see a lot of benefits from spray foam insulation. This is especially true for those who have to use moisture control devices to deal with issues like condensation or excessive humidity.

Spray foam insulation is water resistant, so it won't need to be replaced just because it gets wet. It also fills all the nooks and crannies where water loves to seep in – like the tiny gaps between pipes and walls or cracks in foundations. Spray foam insulation expands itself into these gaps and pushes water out.

Not to mention what this insulation can do for your pest control needs. Spray foam insulation seals cracks and holes in your home's walls in a way that almost nothing else can. It makes it harder for all kinds of pests – from rodents to cockroaches to spiders and more – to enter your home. Not only does it expand into just about every conceivable entry point for pests, but it's also a tougher and much more solid barrier than traditional fiberglass insulation. This makes it much more difficult for rats to chew through or use as nesting material.
