Is Spray Foam Insulation Worth the Money?

You probably are already familiar with fiberglass insulation, and maybe even the cost to add it to your home.  But if you've been hearing good things about spray foam, you may also wonder if it's worth the investment.

 

How Much does Spray Foam Insulation Cost?

The cost of spray foam insulation is usually roughly twice that of normal insulation.  But what you may not know yet is that spray foam insulation will save you more money in the long run. Spray foam Insulation admittedly comes with a higher start-up cost, but the long term benefits make it a cost effective investment.

 

Habitat For Humanity's Study on Spray Foam

I'm sure you've heard of Habitat For Humanity.  That's the non-profit group that builds affordable housing for people.  Well, Habitat for Humanity decided to conduct a little experiment on two identical houses that they built.

 

In one house, Habitat for Humanity used fiberglass insulation.  In the other house, they used spray foam insulation.  They monitored the electricity use of each home, and guess what they discovered after five months?  The house with fiberglass insulation owed $547 more in electricity bills than the home with spray foam. Click Here to read their actual case study.

 

I don't know about you, but I can think of plenty of fun things I'd rather spend $500 on than electricity bills.  And that was just five months, imagine how much cash you could save over the next 20 or 30 years.

 

So how does Spray Foam Insulation actually save you money?

When foam insulation is sprayed into your home, it creates an airtight seal.  Because of that seal, and the material it is made from, it keeps the heat out of your home much better than fiberglass insulation ever could.

 

Here are some of its benefits, including how it saves you money:

  • It can reduce your home electricity costs up to 50%

  • It can prevent mold growth (no expensive removal needed)

  • It can make the walls of your home much stronger

  • A home insulated with spray foam usually has a higher resale value.

So not only are you saving plenty of cash on your electric bills, you actually increase the resale value of your home.  Since spray foam insulation usually lasts the entire lifetime of your house, you don't have to worry about replacing it every 10 years.

 

Spray Foam Insulation is Obviously Worth the Money

So now you know some of the money-saving benefits of having your home treated with spray foam.  As most people know, it simply makes sense to do what will save you serious cash in the long run.
