Closed-cell spray foam insulation maximizes your investment in your home. Investing in closed-cell foam insulation is an important choice in building a sustainable home. Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most advanced insulating materials available to the construction industry. The insulation is spray-applied and, when properly installed, forms an air seal that prevents leaks, minimizes noise, and improves building performance. Closed-cell spray foam is the perfect thermal and moisture management system for your new home.
Why be concerned about moisture?
Mold is an increasing concern with its evident health risks in the Gulf Coast Region and other areas with high levels of rain, flooding, and/or humidity.
Most homebuyers assume that mold does not grow on conventional insulation material; this is a fairly true statement. However, it grows on the organic debris that becomes trapped in these products.
There are four critical requirements for mold growth—available mold spores, available mold food, appropriate temperatures and considerable moisture. Of the four basic requirements for mold growth, moisture availability is by far the easiest mold growth requirement to control.
Bayseal™ insulation is an important component in a moisture management system. Air infiltration and exfiltration, within a structure, contributes to approximately 99% of moisture migration. Reducing air movement deters moisture accumulation so that mold growth is less likely to occur. Closed-cell spray foam insulation helps keep the indoor humidity at a level for which the growth of mildew and allergens can be minimized. Reducing moisture and controlling humidity can also add years to the life expectancy of a home.
Reduce Energy Consumption Through Air Control
Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack and seam. Approximately one third of air infiltrates through ceiling, walls and floor openings. The Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling (space conditioning) account for about 56% of the energy used in the typical American home.
Bayseal™ CC closed-cell insulation helps to maintain a comfortable indoor climate while reducing energy consumption. The application eliminates unwanted air and heat exchange and decreases the amount of moist air that leaks through the house, reducing the adverse effects of mold and mildew growth on or inside walls and ceilings.
