Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation can be installed in new construction homes, renovations and in existing walls with drywall. It can also be sprayed into crawl spaces, roofs and under basement slabs. It adheres to the wall and can fill in cracks, voids and gaps that would otherwise be uninsulated. It can even be used around heating, cooling and plumbing systems.

The primary benefit of spray foam insulation is that it weatherizes your building by acting as both an insulator and air sealant, closing those nooks and crannies where so much heat escapes and drives up energy bills. A study conducted by the US Department of Energy found that up to 40% of a home’s energy is lost through infiltration. This is a totally preventable problem that can be solved by spray foam.

How Spray Foam Insulation Can Improve Energy Efficiency

A spray foam insulation professional can create a custom airtight envelope by using the proper thickness for your climate. In most places, a minimum of two inches in walls and three inches in roofs are recommended to meet the building codes for residential energy efficiency.

Closed-cell spray foam is more rigid and dense than open-cell insulation, which makes it a better choice for areas that will be exposed to constant compression. The density and rigidity of closed-cell spray foam also help increase the strength of a building’s structure.

It is an eco-friendly option as well because it reduces the need for HVAC in your home, which is a major contributor to carbon emissions. In fact, some homeowners have reported savings of up to 50% on their utility bills right away!
