Your home’s insulation helps regulate temperatures throughout its rooms and ensures that your family doesn’t waste any of the energy it uses for its comfort. Sadly, insulation doesn’t last forever, and eventually, you’ll need to replace it

Spray foam insulation is a popular choice of insulation replacement amongst homeowners. However, while some people may try to save money by installing spray foam insulation themselves, DIY efforts rarely produce the efficient results they need.

Here are our top 4 reasons to always work with a professional installation company when placing new spray foam insulation throughout your attic and home.

We Have High-Quality Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a product that combines isocyanate and polyol resin to create the expanding material that seals up your home. However, in order to create a quality spray foam, one has to measure out the chemical correctly.

Hiring a professional to install your insulation helps prevent insulation failure that costs a homeowner even more time and money in repairs and replacement.

We Install Your Insulation Right, the First Time

Home health companies like Advanced Home Comfort guarantee that your home is protected on the first installation attempt. We know exactly where to spray, what amounts to use, and what areas of the home may require blown-in insulation or air sealing.

We’ll bring all of the necessary equipment that guarantees our efforts will leave your home with an insulation job that protects its walls and attic for years to come.

Improper Installation Damages Your Home

Without the right installation techniques or experience with the process, a homeowner could easily do more harm than good with their insulation installation attempt.

DIY insulation can lead to insulation failure. When this happens damage to a home can occur. Some of the most common damages from insulation failure include:

  • Mildew 
  • Mold
  • New areas where drafts occur
  • Rodent infestation

Unfortunately, insulation installation is a task that’s easier said than done. Performing installation the wrong way can lead to the physical damage we pointed out, as well as high utility bills and reduction in your home’s air quality.

We Make the Process Safer

Not only is attempting to mix the chemicals for spray foam a dangerous task in itself, but so is removing the rest of a home’s old insulation.

Insulation doesn’t just give up and fail, it usually starts losing its effectiveness for a reason. Removing old insulation alone could lead to direct exposure to mold spores, mildew, and even asbestos.

A trained installation technician will have the equipment necessary to keep an installation a safe process. Not only can we help you avoid unnecessary exposure to contaminants, but we can also give an accurate estimation of a curing time.

Depending on how much insulation was installed, a family may have to stay away from the home for 24 hours or longer. For this aspect of insulation installation, guesswork is definitely something a homeowner wants to avoid.
