Spray Foam Insulation Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

2. Spray Foam Insulation Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

A huge part of the air you breathe inside your home comes from crawl spaces. This air generally has a temperature that molds actually thrive in. Molds create a musty smell and release toxins that can be harmful for your family’s health. In order to prevent moisture and molds from thriving inside your home, you need to contain moisture and keep your house dry. Sealing crawl spaces, nooks, cracks and crevices with a high quality insulation material can protect your home from airborne allergens, pollution and molds making its indoor quality better.

Spray foam insulation prevents mold growth as it keeps the area dry and free from moisture. When there is no moisture, molds are unlikely to form as they need moisture in order to survive. Also, the components of spray foam insulation don’t become a source of food for molds so it’s very unlikely that they can thrive in a well insulated environment.

Your home’s “envelope” or shell protects you from outdoor environmental elements. Air can escape through cracks and gaps making your house feel uncomfortable and your energy bills expensive. Unfortunately, a typical residential home has large amounts of envelope air leakage through the windows, doors, and walls, as well as through attics and crawl spaces.

Because of this, the comfort and safety of dwellers are sacrificed not to mention the need to pay high electric bills because air-conditioning and heating systems need to work more in order to maintain the comfort level inside. In order to secure the safety of your family and maintain good air quality inside your home, experts suggest that you insulate it.

Spray foam insulation is the number one choice of homeowners today as it provides long lasting results and can successfully contain good air quality inside residential spaces.

Spray foam insulation provides a thermal envelope for homes. It is an excellent sealing agent that not only bars air from coming in and out but also bars dust, pollens and harmful household mold and mildew.

Because of this, you and your family are given a cleaner environment, free from harmful emissions that can cause allergies and diseases.
Spray foam insulation can provide life saving benefits by providing a cleaner air quality in your home by creating an air tight barrier that reduces moisture infiltration, mold and mildew growth, pollutants and indoor allergens.

To effectively reduce moisture, spray foam insulation can be applied to exterior foundation walls, and under slabs. This provides a thermal protection as well as a moisture barrier to your building without taking up useable space.

Testimonials

  • I found Jake enormously detail oriented in purchasing his equipment for AT-Foam. A tough sale to say the least but one that understood the importance of getting what he paid for and making sure what he got was what he paid for. That in itself should warrant a recommendation as most entrepreneurs these days are “instant gratification” oriented and focused exclusively on the cheap price. Good luck Jake & if I can help-you know where/how to reach me.

  • We are finishing our basement and decided that spray foam would be a great way to both insulate and also create the vapor barrier for the exterior walls. Jake responded quickly with a quote. He recommended spraying the rim joists which I decided was a good idea. He then sprayed the walls with the “closed cell” foam and then we had him spray the HVAC ducts with open cell foam for noise attenuation. We were also building one room as a music room for our son who is playing the drumset. We had AT spray the open cell foam on the walls in this room to create a sound proof room.

  • Older house poorly insulated, problem of freezing pipes and mice, they drilled holes in drywall and spray foam insulation inside walls. Sprays as liquid, fills areas, cracks and expands. They were knowledgeable about product and procedure. This company gave excellent service. It was snowing that day. They protected the carpet and entire area. Were considerate and completed in a timely manner. Excellent work performed.
