Spray Foam Insulation
Reduce Energy Bills
What is Foam Spray?
Chemicals mixed together, expands in volume when sprayed which keeps the air sealed and produces insulating value. This mechanism has been used by Skean Homes to keep the homes of the UK thermally insulated during the freezing weather and cooler in the summers as well as make the houses soundproof for over many years. Skean Homes brings the evolution of insulation through the new product, the Icynene Spray Foam Insulation.
Spray foam insulation can be installed in both new and existing homes, creating a warmer home in the winter and a cooler home in the summer, drastically reducing your overall energy bills.
Why Foam Insulation?
Often the open crack or spaces between the walls and windows, attic and in the basement cause the air to escape. This causes slow or reduced insulation. After sealing the air leaks in the attic, basement or crawl spaces, your house will remain insulated and free from extra cooling and heating costs. Spray foam insulation involves two liquids that come in two separate drums. The two liquids travel upwards through a heated hose to the spray gun where they combine to form a foam. The foam expands as soon as it comes out of the gun and fills up the void place. Spray foam insulation provides long-term benefits. They can seal the gaps in existing walls and corners and can fill up the spaces that are otherwise hard to reach.
Spray foam is helpful in sealing the air and putting a check on moisture. This reduces the risk of mould and mildew growth. It also reduces the load on the heating and cooling systems. This home improvement product also reduces the formation of ice dams. Foam insulation also is a good air barrier that mitigates air leakage. It minimizes air infiltration and provides sound dampening qualities and has a lower installation cost per square meter.
Benefits of Foam Insulation
Though the upfront installation cost is high, but it allows to save on the monthly heating and cooling bills. Thus the return on investment makes up for the upfront cost.
This is also due to the fact that spray foam fills the gaps and limits air leakage where the heating and cooling apparatus do not overload themselves for the lost air.
Spray foam stops any chance of snow melting and refreezing at the eaves. Thus it reduces the risk of ice damage in the freezing months on the attic or roofs.
Spray foam does not let the accumulation of water or moisture thus reducing the risk of mould and mildew formation. This also ensures that you stay safe from mould or mildew infection.
Open-cell foam has a sound dampening quality which helps to create a soundproof place.
The environment of the indoor living area can be improved because the foam has the ability to reduce the infiltration of allergens and pollutants.
Once installed, the spray foam remains for a long period of time without sagging or settling over time.
It helps in keeping the house at a constant temperature creating a comfortable atmosphere within the house all over the year.
It gives sturdiness and strength to the structure of the building. Every building is built with the walls given enough strength to hold the building together but often strong winds, storms, heavy snow and earthquake eat away the strength of the structure making the building not very strong.
Closed-cell insulation strengthens the structure of the walls.
Spray foam acts as a blockage for heat, cold, air and water. So one foam insulation saves the building from all kind of natural hazards.
Spray foam is eco-friendly because it reduces energy consumption and reduces carbon footprint. Since it has a longer lifespan than other kinds of insulation, it consumes less material.
