Why Install Spray Foam Insulation?
Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. Roughly one-third of air infiltrates through walls, ceilings and floors. Adding an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance. Spray Foam is that advanced insulation system.
Spray foam insulation can maximize a homeowner's investment by sealing the building envelope to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering a home. Additionally, proper insulation can increase home value.
Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills. The mechanical systems that heat and cool buildings are continuously operating; reducing extreme temperature variations saves on the overuse of mechanical systems and leads to lower energy bills.
The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Reduces utility costs
Prevents energy waste
Eliminates Air Loss
Improves Air Loss
Improves Indoor Air Quality
Maintains Consistency Over Time
Closed-cell foam has the highest spray foam R-value of any insulation material available, at up to R6.8 per inch (the higher the R-value of a material, the greater its resistance to the movement of heat). Open-cell spray foam has an R-value average of R-3.7. Using thermal imaging cameras with a blower door, it’s not uncommon to see missing pieces of fiberglass insulation or a two-inch gap between batts where heat can be lost. With a monolithic seal of spray foam that is not going to happen.
Spray foam takes up much less space than fiberglass or blown-in cellulose. Its thickness depends on where it’s applied, but it averages about 5”-6” deep once installed for open cell spray foam. Closed cell spray foam is 2”-3” thick depending on your requirements.
With an energy-efficient HVAC system, you can see savings of up to 40 percent or more if your house is re-insulated with spray foam properly. This means that the initial spray foam insulation cost can be more than offset by the savings on your energy bills.

What room is right for spray foam?
Closed cell spray foam is used for your wooden substrate under your home. (Subfloor/Crawlspace). Closed cell spray foam is an effective air barrier, thermal barrier, and moisture barrier, and provides the best insulation and soundproof qualities for under the home, and in the walls.
Open cell spray foam is mainly for the attic. It seals off the cracks and leaks from the inside and provides a thermal barrier and air barrier. It will likely bring down the humidity and condensation in your home, and not be affected by the outside air making your home a conditioned space.
