It’s never too early to start planning for summer. And when it comes to your home, one of the best ways to prepare is by installing spray foam insulation. Spray foam is versatile insulation that can be installed in any season, but there are some reasons why you should get it done before the summer months set in. Here are just a few: Install Spray Foam Insulation Before Summer
Prevent Mold and Mildew
Spray foam insulation is highly resistant to water and other moisture, which means it will not absorb any moisture. This prevents mold spores from settling in your attic or crawl space and reduces the risk of dangerous mold growth. The use of spray foam insulation also makes it easier to keep moisture out of your home by preventing water from coming through the walls or ceiling. If you have an attic that tends to get wet during heavy rainfall, then installing spray foam insulation will help prevent water damage in your home. Spray foam insulation is also resistant to rot and decay, making it a good choice for protecting framing members (such as rafters) that are exposed in attics and crawl spaces.
Less Worry About Air Leaks in Summer
Spray foam insulation is an excellent way to seal and insulate your home, as it can prevent air leaks, mold and mildew, and pests, and can even make your home more comfortable. When you install spray foam insulation before summer comes around, you won’t have to worry about hot or cold spots in your home. Spray foam insulation will save you money on energy bills by keeping the temperature consistent throughout the entire year. You will not have to worry about paying higher electricity costs during the warmer months or turning up the heat for winter bills — just enjoy using less energy!
Protect Against Heat and Humidity
Spray foam insulation is the best way to protect your home against the heat and humidity during the summer months. Spray foam insulation reduces air infiltration, which can help keep a house cooler in the summer. By reducing the amount of energy required for cooling, spray foam insulation is also an effective energy-saving strategy that can help reduce monthly utility bills. Spray polyurethane foam is highly insulative because it contains trapped air pockets within its structure. Also, spray foam insulation keeps moisture out of your home. When it keeps the moisture out, it helps the humidity stay down inside of your house.
