3 Reasons to Winterize Your Home With Spray Foam
With winter on its way, is your home properly winterized? To winterize your home is to seal and insulate it so that your family can stay comfortable throughout the winter. This can include roof maintenance and window precautions that we’ve already covered in previous blogs, but your in-wall insulation also plays a role. If your home still tends to feel chilly in the winter, you might not have the right insulation. Here’s why we recommend winterizing your home with the help of spray foam insulation:
Better Heating Performance
Winters in eastern Massachusetts and Vermont can be quite chilly, and if you think it’s bad now, wait until January or February. If your home isn’t properly insulated, even a great HVAC system won’t be able to keep you comfortable this winter. Spray foam insulation is the most comprehensive, best performing insulation available, which means you’ll be able to stay comfortable indoors no matter what the weather is like outside. It also means you may be able to save money on your heating bills this winter, as your heating unit won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable.
Keeps Pests Out
As the temperatures drop outside, bugs, rodents, and other pests may try to take shelter within your home to stay warm. Want to keep them out? You need stronger insulation. Spray foam insulation expands once it’s sprayed in place, so it can fit into even the tightest corners that pests often use as their entrance into your home. It’s also far more difficult to chew through than fiberglass fluff. Thus spray foam insulation will help to keep your home pest free throughout the winter and throughout the rest of the year.
Reduced Noise Permeation
As much as we all love the holidays, admittedly not everyone wants to hear their neighbors’ holiday parties or the carolers wandering around outside. Even in winter, it’s nice to have some peace and quiet while you’re indoors enjoying your own celebrations. Spray foam insulation is thicker than fiberglass insulation, and thus helps to cut down on some of the outside noise that reaches into your home.
