Why Choose Spray Foam Insulation in Manchester?
If you are living in Manchester or have a project in the city that requires insulation, then you have the option to use one of the most innovative insulation solutions on the market today. Spray foam insulation is a widely used insulant that can help homeowners and project managers meet their desired objectives. Whether that may be soundproofing, thermal resistance, mould prevention, sustainability or more, by using Icynene spray foam insulation your property can meet these targets.
Foam insulation is widely used on projects due to its versatility, thermal benefits and cost-effectiveness, which is why our industry experts would recommend its use for most, if not all, insulation projects across Manchester. With many insulation options available on the market, why should you choose spray foam?
Why Insulate with Spray Foam in Manchester?
1. To Protect your Home
Many homes in Manchester are subject to mould growth and moisture build up, which can weaken properties, devalue them and cause decay. Notably, up to 99% of moisture that enters a typical house is airborne, leaving potential to stop this issue via proper insulation.
By opting for a spray foam insulant, you will be able to reduce most of the moisture and stop it from entering your home because foam insulation creates an airtight seal due to its cell composition, therefore, creating a form of protection against moisture and mould growth.
2. Save Money & Energy
One of the key features of investing in spray foam is the return on investment your property will see. If your home is property insulated with our Icynene foam insulation, then you will be able to save up to 50% of the money you typically spend on energy bills, every month. Energy consumption used for heating and cooling will be drastically reduced from the instance that your spray foam system is installed in your Manchester property. Moreover, your property will then fall into a higher energy efficiency category, adding value to your home if you decide to sell.
3. Pest Protection
Traditional forms of insulation in Manchester have been known to act as a food supplement or for nesting materials for certain rodents. This can cause an unwanted breeding ground and acts a habitat for pests, something that homeowners and property owners would want to avoid. However, spray foam is composed of materials that are not a food source and it does not support a nesting ground for rodents due to its solid composition.
4. Air Quality
Airborne pollutants can cause irritation, illnesses, and allergies, most of which are transferred from the outside of a property. If your insulation is not sealed and airtight then you may be at risk of poor air quality. From dust to dirt, spray foam insulation can significantly reduce the amount that enters your home, leaving you with an enhanced quality of life and a more comfortable means of living.
5. Structural Integrity
Using a closed-cell form of spray foam can provide your property in Manchester with a reinforced structural integrity, which can be important for homes or properties that are subject to harsh weathers or in need of that extra support. Using closed-cell foam insulation can be highly effective on wall insulation, especially in flood risk areas because of its water impermeable features.
By opting for a spray foam insulation system, you are opening yourself up to an eco-friendlier way of living. Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint by using the insulant and reducing your reliance on energy consumption, but the product itself is composed of recycled materials. Icynene spray foam is an environmentally friendly insulant and helps you meet your desired energy efficiency goals for your Manchester property.
What Types of Spray Foam Insulation are Available?
If you wish to learn more about using spray foam in Manchester, then it is important to understand the different types of foam insulation and how they can be applied separately for maximum results. The two types we will cover are open-cell spray foam and closed-cell spray foam.
1. Open Cell Foam
Open cell foam is the more cost-effective of the two. This foam insulant variation is composed of light and airy cells and has a rate of expansion from 1mm to 100mm. Due to its expansive capabilities, this spray foam variant is great at reaching those small nooks and cracks and is able to fully cover your property in insulation. This flexibility also makes open-cell spray foam a great product for creating an airtight property, sealing off all areas whilst also reaching the U-value you would expect.
Additionally, open cell foam is prominently used in projects where the desired objective is soundproofing. If you are experiencing a noisy neighbourhood in Manchester or developing offices that require a certain level of soundproofing, then using open cell can meet those standards. The open-cell foam is great at absorbing airborne sounds, due to its cellular composition, providing an effective acoustic insulation solution.
2. Closed Cell Foam
On the other hand, there is closed-cell foam insulation that is readily available across Manchester. This form of insulation has the highest thermal conductivity at 0.036 W/mK. The rigidity of the cellular structure makes this insulant an apex thermal insulator. Because of how firm and solid this form of insulation is, it is best used in areas that you could structurally reinforce as well as create a thermally insulated area for. By reinforcing areas, it adds to the lifespan, therefore, for projects that require insulation top-ups, using closed-cell foam can extend the lifespan of your property.
Closed-cell insulation is a go-to and a favourite for commercial insulation projects in Manchester due to its weather resistant features. It is completely water impermeable, repelling large amounts of water. Experts can spray closed-cell foam on to any material apart from dirt, so it can be applied to metal or concrete surfaces, making it highly effective in your commercial projects in Manchester.
