Icynene helps homeowners increase home value

There are a lot of upgrades that can help homeowners increase the value of their homes, but few are as effective at this as Icynene spray foam insulation. This insulation product is known for adding more resale value to a house for a number of reasons, including insulation R-value*, improved air quality and an air seal around a home. Reviewing each of these qualities shows exactly why it's best to add spray foam insulation to your home today.

Heating and cooling savings
One of the most dramatic effects of adding Icynene insulation to a home is how quickly and dramatically home heating and cooling costs are reduced. This is due to generating a continuous air seal throughout a building, preventing conditioned air from leaking to the outside and keeping external conditions from having an impact on interior air quality. Different parts of the country experience various temperature and climate changes, so it's important that homeowners take considerations to add the right kind of insulation products with sufficient R-values* to protect their investments.

Imagine never having to turn your thermostat too high and still enjoying a comfortable home environment all throughout the year. This can be achieved with Icynene, as the spray foam insulation creates a solid air barrier.

The allergen barrier
The sealing of the building envelope is also a reason why people with Icynene insulation in their homes are less likely to get asthma or express allergic tendencies. People spend about 90 percent of their lives indoors, so when they're constantly bombarded with dust, mold and mildew, it's likely that these triggers will create health problems in residents of all ages.

Icynene spray foam insulation is able to stop bad air particles passing into a home. It also blocks out mold and mildew, cuts the ability for allergens to pass into a house and makes deters pests from wanting to nest in a building. By blocking out all the negative factors the outside world has to offer, indoor conditions can increase dramatically.

Preventative moisture methods
There are few parts of the country that can claim they receive negligible moisture accumulation throughout the year. Those who experience average rainfall, snow showers and other water-based elements know that good quality insulation can act as a major deterrent of moisture buildup in a house, protecting everything from the basement to the attic from floods, snowfall and everything else the great outdoors can throw at a house.

With Icynene, risk of floods and moisture accumulation is not an issue. Medium density spray foam insulation doesn't allow water to permeate the indoor-outdoor barrier, meaning water can't pass through the dense insulation. This negates the threat of mold and mildew growing in a home, as well as protecting the building's infrastructure from deterioration due to liquid accretion. Older insulation materials lmay absorb water and grow mold.

Talk to a certified Icynene insulation contractor and building specialist for more information about how you can dramatically increase the value of your home. Not only will you feel more comfortable and lower your heating and cooling bills, but come resale time, the investment will really pay off when green innovation and overall effectiveness of insulation helps boost the bottom line on your home sale.

* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
