SES Spray Foam Insulation Benefits
SES Spray Foam Insulation is widely considered to be the optimum solution to a myriad of potential issues that can occur in home construction. From unwanted pests to high energy bills to reducing your carbon footprint and more, spray foam really is much more than just insulation. The following list represents some of the most beneficial uses of foam insulation.
This is probably the most well known and most popular reason for upgrading to spray foam. Who doesn’t want lower energy bills? Energy rates are rising every year in most of the country. Unlike fiberglass, blown in cellulose, and spyder, SES spray foam seals every crack and corner, eliminating potential air leaks while keeping conditioned air inside and unconditioned air outside. Customers have reported savings of 25% – 60% after upgrading to spray foam.
Spiders, Snakes, and Rodents
Traditional insulation creates cozy homes for unwanted pests, complete with a soft bed to sleep on. SES 2.0 spray foam cures to a very hard and tough state, making it difficult to penetrate. Because spray foam also creates an air barrier, rodents and critters can’t smell potential food on the other side and won’t try to get through.
Extend HVAC System Life
With SES spray foam, your HVAC system will run less because your conditioned air will stay in the home. This in turn extends the life of your system, saving you even more money over your lower energy bills.
Dust and Allergies
Another huge benefit to sealing your home with spray foam is the elimination of air infiltration. This means less dust, pollen, mold spores and other airborne contaminants, giving new relief to allergy sufferers. Plus, any time spent not dusting your home is good time saved!
Added Home Strength
SES 2.0 closed cell spray foam can strengthen your roof up to 300%, reducing damage from high winds and severe weather. In some hurricane zones, closed cell foam has been the difference between losing or keeping the roof for many homeowners.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
According to The Nature Conservancy, spray foam can reduce the carbon footprint of one home by 5 tons per year. That’s a pretty big chunk of carbon and definitely worth bragging about! If every home in the US upgraded to spray foam insulation, the US would cut its carbon emissions by 12.5%!
