How Spray Foam Insulation Can Lower Your Energy Bills and Keep You More Comfortable

attic insulation is a high-performance home insulation material that can significantly lower your energy bills and keep you more comfortable. It can reduce moisture intrusion that leads to mold and mildew, and it helps block contaminants like allergens, VOCs, and dust mites. Quality spray insulation also creates an effective vapor barrier that prevents condensation.

Key Factors to Consider When Choosing Spray Foam Insulation

Unlike fiberglass, cellulose, and mineral wool insulation, spray foam is not an off-the-shelf product. It’s typically stored as two separate chemicals and mixed onsite as it’s applied, which is why it’s only available through professional installers. The two ingredients combine to form a polyurethane foam that expands when sprayed, filling and sealing tight spaces where other materials can’t reach.

The foam then hardens to form a durable, airtight seal, which can save you as much as 50 percent on your heating and cooling costs. Our spray insulation can be used in walls, attics, and basement rim joist in new construction or existing homes, as well as uncovered walls in pole barns.

When properly installed, spray insulation is non-toxic, but it does off-gas while curing. To avoid this, choose a spray insulation that uses low-GWP blowing agents such as BASF Walltite CM01 and Genyk Boreal Nature. These products are free of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and other blowing agents that may be linked to the ozone depletion and global warming. This will also minimize the risk of health issues, such as respiratory problems and eye, nose, and skin irritation.
