Distinctive Spray Foam consists of millions of tiny air pockets that create barriers that prevent heat from moving. These little air pockets also help the foam to conform to nooks and crannies. The resulting custom air seal helps to reduce the amount of heat that escapes your home, which ultimately saves you money on heating and cooling bills.

When the sprayed foam expands, it fills the tiny gaps and cracks between studs and framing members. It also seals around electrical outlets and light fixtures. It can be applied to existing homes, new construction, commercial structures and pole barns.

Energy Efficiency: How Spray Foam Insulation Saves You Money

There are two types of spray foam: open-cell and closed-cell. The difference is in how the cells are encapsulated. Open cell spray foam has many small bubbles that are not completely closed, while closed cell has fewer and larger bubbles that are fully enclosed. Open cell spray foam is softer and more flexible than closed-cell spray foam, but both can provide excellent insulation value.

There are many brands of spray foam insulation available, and it’s important to choose a quality product. You should look for an R-value of at least R-3 in walls and R-6 in roofs, depending on your climate zone. It’s also important to select a product that is environmentally friendly. Be sure to avoid products that use high GWP blowing agents, such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Instead, look for low-GWP blowing agents such as Genyk Boreal Nature and BASF Walltite CM01. These spray foam insulation products do not release HFCs into the atmosphere.
