You wouldn’t guess that almost 40% of the energy used in Tampa homes and businesses for heating and cooling is wasted by air infiltration. And that’s not just from the small holes, gaps and fissures in your home’s envelope – it’s because traditional wall and attic insulation, well, sucks. But there’s a superb solution.
Cool drafts and hot gusts of air from uninsulated or poorly insulated areas not only make your living area unpleasant, they can drive up heating and cooling costs. Plus, no matter how much you run the heater or air conditioner, there will always be areas that aren’t quite comfortable, and the temperature will vary throughout your home.
But you don’t have to keep tolerating those drafts and sacrificing indoor air quality and comfort. You can invest in your home in a way that will increase its livability and its value and put those pesky drafts behind you! Insulation makes a significant difference in your home’s environment, and spray foam insulation makes a huge difference.
Spray Foam Insulation Tampa serves homes and businesses throughout the entire Hillsborough and Pinellas County area, including all of these great communities:
Sometimes it’s really not the heat; it’s the humidity, especially here along the coast of Florida. Unwanted air flow isn’t the only threat to your home – moisture can also enter gaps and crevices and cause problems such as mold, mildew, and deterioration of building materials. Since foam insulation provides a tight seal, it acts as a moisture barrier, and that helps prevent the damage and indoor allergens that moisture can cause in a poorly insulated home. This is especially true for closed-cell foam, which resists moisture even more than open-cell. This can benefit your health as well as your property. And again, if you do experience flooding, spray foam can often survive that moisture without deteriorating. All this makes spray foam insulation yet another way to invest in your home that increases both its life expectancy and its living value, providing a great return on your investment.
Hard to believe that one product, which was designed to insulate from outside air, could serve so many purposes, but it does. While you are relaxing in your comfortable, quiet home, spray foam gives you one more reason to rest easy with a little more security than before: spray foam insulation can also increase the strength of your building.
Structural strength is increases when spray foam is applied, especially in attics. It may even make the roof less likely to lift in the case of a storm. This is one more way that foam insulation increases your peace of mind and improves your home value.
Spray foam is also more versatile than other types of insulation, since it can be applied in such a wide variety of spaces. It can be applied to new construction or most existing structures. It can be applied to the underside of roof decking or under flooring in a basement; it can be applied directly to masonry, and it can be sprayed around unusual shapes, such as around an arch or inside other curved areas.
It can also be sprayed around obstructions or gaps caused by pipes and other objects. This flexibility in application protects your home in hard to reach areas and areas that might be impossible for other types of insulation. It also provides tighter seals, since it can fill in small gaps that other forms of insulation leave exposed.
