Whether you are remodeling, building new construction, or simply working to increase efficiency in your Yakima County home, chances are you could benefit from the use of spray foam insulation. While there are many options available for insulating your home, spray foam has some of the best overall advantages in terms of cost, efficiency, moisture control, pest protection, and even sound control. Here's what you need to know about the benefits of spray foam insulation in attics and basements, around pipes and utilities, applications for your total home, and services from Prosite.

In Attics, Basements, And Crawl Spaces

Spray foam can be a huge benefit in attics, basements, and crawl spaces. For one thing, spray foam acts as a vapor barrier and can block moisture from entering your home. For another, it can provide added protection against pests in areas they often use to access your home. And then there's the insulation benefit. Spray foam in these areas of your home can help maintain a more consistent temperature with minimal fluctuations, drafts, and noise. This can help make your home more comfortable as well as more efficient and safer from the elements. 

Around HVAC Units And Other Pipes And Utilities

Insulating around HVAC units and other pipes and utilities can be a challenging task, especially in existing construction. The expanding nature of spray foam allows the material to take the form of wherever it is sprayed. This makes for a much more flexible product, able to fit into tiny nooks and crannies, around corners, and inside small spaces. Additionally, spray foam is not simply insulation. It also provides protection against moisture, blocks drafts, and prevents pests from entering your home. Areas where utility lines, wires, or pipes enter a home are often a weak point in both pest management and energy efficiency, but spray foam insulation can solve both of those issues. 

The Benefits Of Total Spray Foam Insulation For Your Home

There are a variety of different types of benefits spray foam insulation offers to your home, including:

  • Temperature Regulation: As you would expect, spray foam insulation helps regulate the temperature of Yakima County homes.
  • Cost Savings: While the cost of installation can be higher than other options, many people see over a 20% reduction in monthly bills, which can add up over time, especially given that spray foam can last for decades while other types of insulation become less effective after 15 years. 
  • Comfort: Not only does spray foam keep temperatures regulated, but it can also seal gaps and cracks that lead to drafty rooms and provide noise reduction in treated areas. 
  • Moisture Control: Moisture in your home can lead to mold, mildew, and rotting materials. Spray foam can help prevent moisture by filling the spaces where water often seeps into a building. Not only that, but the foam itself is impervious to water and will not need to be replaced after getting wet.  
  • Pest Prevention: Pests often come inside through tiny openings that spray foam can seal. Additionally, pests that would typically use insulation for nesting materials will not be able to do so with spray foam. 
  • Reduced Allergens: Once cured, spray foam is a non-toxic substance that minimizes allergens such as dust and mildew by sealing all of those small holes. 

There are endless reasons to invest in a spray foam treatment for your home. For the best in the business, call on Prosite.
