Spray Foam and Noise Control

You already knew that an application of spray foam insulation can increase the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your utility bills substantially, but did you also realize that it can help control noise?

The creation of an air barrier in your home can prevent noise transmission, adding yet another layer of comfort to your surroundings. Airborne sound transmission is minimized. If you experience a high level of noise spillover from your family room, for example, and your television or other entertainment equipment, spray foam can seal the cracks and crevices that allow sound and vibrations to escape, containing the noise and improving the comfort of surrounding rooms. An application of spray foam insulation can actually increase the value of your home simply by creating independent living spaces that accommodate the kind of noisy lifestyle today’s families experience every day.

Spray foam is often used in commercial properties like office buildings and even schools to mitigate noise problems. If you have sound concerns and would like to find out if spray foam insulation can help, contact Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc. today and schedule a free estimate. We look forward to hearing from you!

Dehumidification: End Health Concerns and Property Damage by Conditioning Your Home Environment

Many people experience harmful or annoying effects of moisture in the air of their homes and don’t even know it is happening. You can easily see evidence of excess moisture, however, when warm air hits the coldest spot on your walls – usually, your windows. Condensation is the product of these conditions and can be one of the first warning signs indicating that you need to increase air circulation and decrease moisture in your home environment.

Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc. now offers the E-Z Breathe Ventilation System to help fix this problem and save your family the discomfort and damage that excess moisture, as well as contaminants and stale can cause. The system draws air throughout the home and expels stale, contaminated and moist air so what remains is healthier and less damaging to your house and family.

E-Z Breathe also helps regulate temperatures in your home. It works in conjunction with optimized spaces such as encapsulated crawl spaces and conditioned attics to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of your home. All you need is E-Z breathe and an operating HVAC system and you’ll soon enjoy some of the purest home air available.
