Spray Foam Insulation – Why It’s Better Than Fiberglass and Cellulose

Spread the love

Investing in spray foam insulation is one of the best investments you can make for your home. It insulates better than fiberglass and cellulose, saving you on heating and cooling costs. In addition, it reduces outside noise pollution, creating a quieter and more comfortable living space in your Gonzalez home.

Energy Efficiency with Spray Foam Insulation

Unlike fiberglass or cellulose, which can settle over time, spray foam insulation is designed to conform to the structure of your house. It is sprayed on site and expands to fill the gaps and nooks and crannies in your home’s walls and ceilings, sealing them completely. It also creates an air barrier that prevents unwanted heat or cold from leaking into your home, and it can even seal drafts from around windows and doors.

Spray foam insulation is available in open or closed cell, and each type has its advantages. Open cell spray foam contains little pockets of air (cells) that aren’t completely encapsulated, making it a softer and more flexible material. Closed cell spray foam is physically stronger, and it provides a better air barrier, so you don’t have to apply a separate vapor barrier when you install it.

Both types of spray foam offer great energy efficiency, but close-cell is generally the preferred choice of homeowners because it is more cost effective and does a better job of insulating your home than open-cell. Before deciding on a particular type of spray foam, it’s important to consider the R value, which is a measure of how well an insulation resists conduction and convection. The higher the R value, the more insulated your home will be.
