4 Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation During the Summer

About Icynene

It’s not uncommon for people to associate insulation with winter as a method of trapping heat inside your home to keep warm. Whilst this is certainly true, Icynene spray foam insulation has plenty of overlooked benefits for the Summer season too! Residential insulation during the summer can help to keep your home cool, reduce noise and even protect your home from unwanted bugs and insects. Choose Mass Foam Systems as your Icynene installers and discover the benefits of foam insulation in summer.

1. Reduce noise

The warmer weather and lighter evenings can mean more neighbourhood noise. With outdoor parties, socialising and BBQs more likely to create extra noise pollution, Icynene spray foam insulation is beneficial for reducing any unwanted loud sound coming from your neighbours or outside traffic. When sprayed, the Icynene foam expands on application to create a protective layer that improves soundproofing and prevents outside noise travelling inside.

2. Stay cool

Although Icynene foam is a great residential insulation solution for air sealing homes to keep in the warmth, it is also able to keep cool air circulating. The insulation layer forms a seal between heated and cooled living spaces to maintain an even temperature throughout your home. The environmentally friendly solution reduces mould and condensation and improves indoor air quality and thermal conductivity of residential buildings. Icynene foam can even reduce your energy bills by up to 50%.

3. Protect against pollutants

For those that suffer with allergies during the summer, the air tight insulation seal created by Icynene foam can protect your home from pollutants and allergens that could potentially affect yours and your family’s health. Dust, dirt, exhaust fumes and even carbon monoxide are reduced by air sealing your home, and further protects against mould growth to reduce the risk of respiratory distress. By minimising airborne moisture with spray insulation, Icynene foam prevents airborne pollutants and allergens leakage to the inside of your home so you can stay healthy in the summer months.

4. Keep bugs away

Icynene spray foam insulation offers superior performance compared to other types of insulation, and as the foam expands it fills all cavities to prevent infiltration from any insects and bugs that you want to keep out. The layer of solid foam makes it difficult for pests to go through to the inside of your home, and it doesn’t provide a source of food or a nesting place for any unwanted bugs. Residential insulation with Icynene foam will enhance the structural integrity of your residential building unlike other types of insulation.
