Spray Foam Insulation For Quality Insulation

spray foam insulation is an expensive option, but it can save homeowners money year-round by improving their home’s energy efficiency. It has a high R-Value per inch and can effectively seal nooks, crannies, and other areas that other types of insulation cannot. It is also a superior air-sealing insulation, preventing air leaks in and out of the house. It also helps prevent drafts and creates a healthier environment with less allergens. Additionally, it can increase a home’s resale value, especially when installed by an experienced professional.

How Spray Foam Insulation Can Improve Energy Efficiency

What Is Spray Foam Insulation Made Of?

Spray Foam is made of polyurethane foam, which is a type of plastic. The process to make this plastic begins when two liquid chemical components undergo a reaction in a spray container, causing them to expand into a foam. The resulting foam has many applications in construction, and it is commonly used as an insulation for residential and commercial buildings. This insulation is sprayed into wall cavities and the seams and joints of attics, basements, and crawl spaces.

Depending on the type of spray foam used, it can have either an open or closed cell structure. Open cell spray foam is full of tiny bubbles that aren’t completely encapsulated, making it a softer and more flexible material. Closed cell spray foam is a harder and more rigid material. Whether you choose open or closed cell, it is important to have professional technicians install this insulation. They will use a spray gun to apply the foam to the walls of a home and should be fully protected with respiratory protection during this process. While the foam is curing, it can off-gas a large amount of volatile organic compounds. Fortunately, the foam can be made nontoxic by using an eco-friendly blowing agent, which is free of Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and Hydrofluorocarbons.
