Why Spray Foam is Our Go-To for Energy Efficiency
Why Spray Foam is Our Go-To for Energy Efficiency

Would you like to pay up to 40% more than you have to for utility bills? Of course not! But many homeowners pay more than they should without energy-saving spray foam insulation. Let’s look at the benefits of this cost-cutting element of a Hagood home.

Spray Foam Lowers Energy Costs

That energy-saving claim doesn’t come from us; the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that homes with spray foam insulation enjoy a 40% reduction in energy costs. According to the DOE, homes with spray foam insulation have around 35% to 40% better energy efficiency than average homes in the U.S. That directly translates to lower utility bills and reduced carbon footprints.

Hagood’s designs maximize the energy-saving properties of spray foam. How? By using advanced framing techniques and placing HVAC systems in attics. When not well insulated, attics may have temperatures that climb as high as 130 degrees. However, an attic in a Hagood home stays about 85 degrees during summer and winter. Not battling heat and humidity as they would in a poorly insulated attic, HVAC systems work less and cost less. Plus, that regulated attic temperature makes it perfect for our accessible attic storage!

The MPI Spray Foam Difference

Equally as important as effectiveness, spray foam is non-toxic and GreenGuard certified. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses this criterion for hospitals and schools, where children and older adults often spend considerable time.

Benefits Beyond Energy Savings

  • Keeps out moisture. Folks in the Coastal Carolinas know tropical storms can blow in with substantial wind-driven rain, which can enter homes through soffit, ridge, or gable vents, often causing mold. But the thermal seal created by spray foam eliminates the need for these vents.
  • Reduces noise. Outside sounds like the buzz of lawnmowers can disrupt even the most peaceful neighborhoods. And nobody wants to hear water running through plumbing pipes. Spray foam considerably reduces and even eliminates, many of these unwanted sounds.
  • Improves air quality. A spray-foam thermal envelope guards against dust, allergens, and airborne pollutants that might otherwise enter a home. This creates significantly improved interior air.
  • Keeps out pests. With spray foam, there are no vents that might allow bugs and critters to enter your home. And spray foam fills up every nook and cranny that these uninvited guests might try to use as intrusion points.
