Spray Foam Benefits

Spray Foam Benefits

Traditional batt and ‘blown-in’ insulations don’t compare to the many benefits of spray foam, including performance, energy efficiency and long-term savings.

At a time when energy costs are rising in this province, spray foam insulation is your first, best step toward optimal energy efficiency. It may be the only one-time investment you can make during the entire lifespan of your home that becomes more valuable over time.

The top 3 reasons to choose spray foam insulation:

1. Save money. And keep on saving.

Save Money

Spray foam insulation finds all the small spaces, cracks, holes and framing imperfections that traditional insulation just won’t fill. Consider the fact that heating costs normally account for over 50% of the electricity used in electrically heated homes. If your home isn’t properly insulated, with every day that passes you continue to waste energy and the money that pays for it. An investment today in spray foam will provide a solution that other forms of insulation just can’t match – and it will save you thousands of dollars over the lifespan of your home.

2. Create a healthier home for your family.

The superior properties of spray foam insulation give you all the benefits of an air-tight, continuous seal. Indoor air-quality is improved by reducing the presence of dust, allergens and other pollutants from the outside and the water-resistant features of spray foam provide exceptional protection against moisture, mildew and mold. Less energy consumption also means a smaller carbon footprint – which benefits everyone.

3. Live in greater comfort and quiet.

Your home

Spray foam is the best insulation to prevent drafts and regulate temperature – helping to maintain a home that’s warm and cozy in the winter and cool in the summer. The seal provided by spray foam is proven to help to keep out pests and its sound dampening properties reduce the disturbance of outside noise.
Spray foam insulation is a one-time upgrade with long-term results.

The process from start to finish was great, from the speedy and accurate quote to the level of tidiness when installing the foam to the clean up. Island insulation was a great company to deal with, and had all the information on insulation rebates offered by NL Power to make the decision on installing spray foam easier.

Nice job done and very professional!

I had my crawl space done and it made a huge difference to the comfort in my home. last winter my floors were always cold, which in turn, have to turn up the heat to compensate. The floors are warmer now, so it should cut down on the light bill. These guys are very professional and do very tidy work. I highly recommend them for the job.
