Spray foam insulation highly-effective product for insulating new and existing homes. It’s sprayed on-site as a liquid, expands to fill cracks and crevices, and conforms to the unique design of your home or structure. It’s often used in new construction but can be applied in attics, crawl spaces, and rim joists of old homes. It can also be sprayed around electrical outlets and light fixtures, or on the top of walls where they meet windows or doors.
The air-sealing properties of spray foam are what really set it apart. It can block out a significant amount of air leakage, which is the single largest cause of energy waste in the average American home. By reducing this leakage, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard in winter or summer, and that saves on your utility bills every month.
From Air Leaks to Air-Tight: The Transformative Effects of Advanced Seal Spray Foam Insulation
One of the downsides to traditional spray foam, however, is that it’s very toxic during the application process and while it’s curing. The blowing agents that make the spray foam swell and expand have a very high global warming potential (GWP), which is why many companies are now transitioning to low-GWP foam products.
The higher-end closed-cell spray foam is more expensive than open cell, but it’s a much better insulator per board foot, and it creates an effective vapor barrier that prevents attics, crawl spaces, and other areas from developing mold or mildew. In addition to reducing your energy costs, the moisture-resistant qualities of spray foam insulation can reduce the need for a dehumidifier in your crawl space or basement.
