OPEN-CELL SPRAY FOAM INCREASES COMFORT WHILE REDUCING COSTS
Open-cell spray foam insulation’s unique texture – a property of its tiny, interconnected bubbles – provides an insulation value between R-3.5 and R-4 per inch. That means that your home will experience improved temperature consistency after spray foam has been installed, reducing the cost of heating and even cooling your home.
In addition to insulating, open-cell spray foam insulation also seals cracks and crevices that allow the passage of air through your home. This makes it especially valuable in attic encapsulation where high temperatures in the summer force hot air through gaps around light fixtures, joints, and air ducts. That hot air doesn’t just affect your comfort, it also distributes dust, mold, and other allergens from the attic throughout the rest of your home.
WHERE SHOULD I USE OPEN-CELL SPRAY FOAM INSULATION?
Because open-cell spray foam has a spongy consistency, it allows moisture to pass through it. That quality and its lower cost make open-cell superior to closed cell for attic encapsulation and wall insulation, where it can be sprayed between rafters or studs. If your attic or a wall develops a leak, water will pass through the insulation, alerting you to the problem. This ensures water doesn’t sit beneath your roof, creating rot.
