The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

When used as part of the building envelope in a home or business, spray foam insulation expands and fills crevices in the wall, floor, and ceiling – areas that can be difficult to reach with traditional fiberglass batts. Spray foam also seals gaps around pipes, electrical wiring and windows and doors, making it a good choice for new construction projects.

Quality Insulation is available in open and closed-cell varieties, with the latter being more rigid and hard-wearing. Both are highly effective, but the open-cell variety has a higher R-value due to its cells being deliberately left unencapsulated. It is sprayed onto the substrate and then dries to form an airtight, durable barrier that resists both moisture and heat flow.

Understanding the Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

A quality insulation system helps keep energy costs down and makes your home more comfortable, whether you live in an urban area or a rural setting. It also protects your home from mold and mildew and wards off pollutants that can make people sick. Insulation absorbs noise, too, creating a quiet and peaceful environment for the occupants.

The high global warming potential of the blowing agents used in spray foam insulation is a concern, but the industry has been working to reduce this impact. Many spray foam products now use blowing agents with lower global warming potential, and some green building programs require the use of these low-GWP spray foams. The industry is also making strides toward using renewable resources for the blowing agents in spray insulation.
