While spray foam insulation generally costs more to install than other insulation, it often makes up for it in the long term in energy efficiency. Spray foam attic insulation energy savings range between 15% to 50% on energy bills. You’ll also notice a distinct difference in comfort levels inside your home. Because spray foam seals up spaces when properly installed, it keeps more of your conditioned air inside the home. This also causes your air conditioner or heater to run less, while still keeping your home comfortable.
The biggest difference between spray foam insulation and traditional forms of insulation like fiberglass and cellulose is that spray foam insulation is an air barrier and thermal barrier all in one (with closed cell spray foam even offering a moisture barrier as well). This means that spray foam insulation accomplishes the job of providing insulation and air sealing with one product. In contrast, traditional forms of insulation do not provide any barrier to air flow. This is important for establishing a continuous and complete thermal/air barrier with the building envelope.
Marks and devious Semikoli but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
There are two different types of spray foam insulation: open and closed cells. Closed-cell spray foam cures into a hard, rigid state, whereas open cell cures with a spongy, softer feel. In terms of R-values, closed-cell spray foam is close to R-7 per inch and open cell around R-4 per inch. Also, closed-cell becomes an air barrier at only 1” of application, while it takes on average 3” of open-cell foam to achieve an air barrier. Another big difference is that open-cell is water permeable and closed-cell is not. Open-cell also has soundproofing qualities that can help in dampening outside noise.
Are you trying to determine what kind of Foam to use for your projects? It's a bit more complicated than you think. No worries, we are here to help you the whole way! Even though closed-cell foam and open-cell foam provide insulation to homes, they do this in different methods.
The reaction that creates spray foam insulation is irreversible, preventing the breakdown into its constituent parts. Therefore spray foam is stable and will not shrink or sag.
There is no special requirement needed to encapsulate electrical wires other than what is required with all types of insulation. As with other types of insulation, when the properly rated size and type of electrical wires are used, there is no overheating of those electrical wires.
Open-Cell and Closed-Cell spray foam insulation offers no organic food value. Therefore it cannot support bacteria or fungal growth. The effective air-sealing characteristic prevents the movement of hot air to the cold parts of the walls, preventing condensation from taking place within the wall cavities. The elimination of condensation within the wall assemblies prevents the growth of molds and mildew.
Spray foam insulation has excellent sound absorption properties and sound transmission properties. When comparing spray foam insulation to other insulations, there is a very noteworthy difference. As an effective air seal, they eliminate the air gaps through which sound travels easiest. In addition to controlling all frequencies, they are superior in controlling mid-range frequencies that include the most common sounds – the human voice and stereo music.
