Many homeowners avoid covering their garage with insulation because they think it won’t affect the living conditions inside the home, but this isn’t the case. Barring a few exceptions, the garage does affect the living conditions in your home. If you have a room above the garage or your garage connects to your home, an uninsulated garage can cause an increase in energy bills and cause drafts to come through the connecting walls and doors. Spray foam for your garage insulation is your best option to combat these issues.
Why Choose Spray Foam Insulation
1. It’s Resistant to Mold and Mildew
Spray foam is resistant to mould and mildew because the foam is made not to retain moisture. While some insulation materials may be able to deal with a small amount of moisture, they aren’t made to handle moisture over time. If mould and mildew are allowed to build up in your insulation, they’ll become a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause allergies and other respiratory ailments.
2. It’s Environmentally-Friendly
Spray foam insulation is 100 percent recyclable and is made from a renewable resource. Other insulation materials are made from materials that can’t be recycled, and if you try to recycle them, it’s not feasible. Spray foam insulation is an environmentally-friendly option, especially when using spray foam.
3. It Regulates Heating and Cooling
Spray foam absorbs heat, using less energy to keep your home at the desired temperature. Spray foam is also a barrier that prevents heat from escaping. Spray foam can also help to regulate the temperature in the summer. Unlike other insulations, which don’t insulate against heat in the summer, spray foam can be used to block the heat coming into your home.
4. It Protects Your Garage and HVAC Ducts Against Pests
Spray foam insulation can seal up your garage and HVAC ducts against pests, which can otherwise come into your garage and infest the rest of your house. The spray foam can be placed around the edges of your garage, which can then be covered with a wall facing to create a proper seal. This will keep pests and insects out of your garage and protect your HVAC ducts.
5. It Reduces Outdoor Noise
Another advantage of using spray foam to insulate your garage is that it can help to reduce the amount of noise coming into the garage. Sound, such as traffic and lawnmowers, can be loud enough to be annoying and disruptive, especially if you spend a lot of time in your garage. If you insulate your garage with spray foam, it’s going to help reduce the amount of noise coming in so you can work undisturbed.
Spray foam for your garage is a great option, mainly because it has so many benefits. Spray foam also makes your garage look nicer by coating your walls and ceiling. Spray foam is easy to install, as it’s sprayed directly onto your garage walls, which means you won’t have to spend hours cutting or placing insulation sheets on the walls. Spray foam is also an excellent choice because you can use different spray foam application methods, including a professional sprayer or doing the spray foam yourself.
