Spray foam is a superior insulation material. Here’s why…
Better Indoor Air Quality
Closed-cell foam prevents air, water, dust and other pollutants from entering. At the same time, it inhibits mold growth. Inhalation of toxic mold is an age-old problem for homeowners. By eliminating the breeding ground for mold, spray foam ensures better indoor air quality.
Spray foam reduces unwanted noise inside and outside the home (footsteps on upper floors, vibration from appliances etc), also called impact noise.
Improved Structural Strength
Spray foam strengthens the structure of your home. When the foam expands, it fills the gaps between each wall, floor or roof. We can consider the spray test conducted by the Civil Engineering Department of Clemson University. The test showed that roofs with spray foam can withstand 2-3.5 times more that roofs held alone. Without spray foam, the uplift resistance per square foot was 87 pounds. On the other hand, spray foam increased it to 314 when added.
Incredible Energy Savings
Families & businesses have been able to save 50% or more energy expenses using spray foam. On the other hand, other types of insulation have an average energy saving rate of about 30%.

But doesn’t spray foam cost more?
The average cost for traditional batt insulation (you know, the stuff that looks like cotton candy?) is around $1552. On the other hand, spray foam insulation costs anywhere from that price to multiple thousands. Spray foam insulation is clearly costlier here. However, we cannot judge spray foam on the initial investment only. Those who are interested in spray foam insulation, know the long-term benefits of it. The initial cost versus the advantages, energy savings and ROI play a significant role in the purchase decision.
Here are some variables that can influence the initial investment of spray foam insulation:
- Project location
- Quantity of material required
- Project size
- Building code requirements
- Type of spray foam (open-cell or closed-cell)
Saving Energy with Spray Foam Insulation
A big portion of a homeowner’s energy expenses includes heating and cooling costs. In fact, heating and cooling costs alone are as much as other costs such as lighting, electronics, water heating and refrigeration combined. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), an average home spends $1,300 annually on heating and cooling costs alone. It makes good sense to homeowners to do something that will make their homes more energy efficient. One of the best ways to do that is to use spray foam insulation.
Air leaks can waste energy and drive up your utility bills. Using spray foam, you can fill these gaps and stop the leaks in many areas of a home or building. Some common spots for air leaks that you can seal with spray foam include:
- Behind knee walls
- Wiring holes
- Open soffits
- Attic hatches
- Basement rim joists, windows and doors
- Plumbing vents
- Recessed Light, furnace flue or duct chaseways
The good thing about spray foam insulation is that it makes your home warmer in wintertime and cooler in summertime by reducing energy consumption, improving indoor comfort and enhancing air circulation. At the same time, it controls the movement of air moisture. The better-controlled moisture levels make a healthier and happier indoor living environment.
Spray foam insulation is a powerful insulation technology. It’s expansive in nature and tightly seals all nooks and crannies. Spray foam’s resistance value is the highest on the market today (ranked at R-6).
Spray foam is an eco-friendly insulation choice. It creates a ‘green’ household by reducing energy consumption, protects against moisture and mold growth, and reduces the overall amount of consumed materials, since it lasts so long.
Air leaks are one of the biggest reasons for high-energy bills. Spray foam insulation does a great job in this case, as it is highly capable of thoroughly sealing cracks or holes in your attic, walls and crawl space.
Spray foam insulation ensures a long lifespan. It allows homeowners to enjoy its benefits for decades and save money over the course of 20 years or more.
Spray foam is comprised of an inert polymer that works strongly against mold and bacteria. Now you’re better protected against mold and mildew.
