Spray Foam Insulation Saves You Money and Energy

Friday, November 19th, 2010 by Samantha Walton


Home installations can become intrusive, messy and frustrating. There's nothing worse than paying for something and expecting big changes, but seeing such a little return on investment. If you've had the pink and fluffy fiberglass insulation in your home then you might be able to relate with the distress of a faulty installation.

So, what's the other option for home insulation? Let's talk about spray foam insulation.

Spray Foam Basics

Many homeowners are looking for ways to go green and use less energy. When they pay for insulation thinking it'll reduce their energy usage and provide a more comfortable home, they may find their expectations unmet.

However, spray foam is a form of insulation that is less visible than the fluffy pink fiberglass insulation. This insulation is also capable of meeting multiple needs including sealing, lowering utility bills and protecting against pollutants in the air.

This insulation is ideal for use in a basement or a crawl space! Can you imagine the benefits of finishing a basement and having it completely sealed without any mold growth?! Now that's a bonus.

In addition, this spray foam insulation may even qualify you for a Federal Tax Credit. Make sure you cash in for your reward.

The Debate

Maybe you need more than just "spray foam is better than fiberglass" to be encouraged to buy spray foam for your home. Let's compare the fiberglass and spray foam insulations.

Spray foam insulation is a multifaceted polyurethane insulation that serves as a vapor barrier and an air barrier, which means you save more energy and money. In addition, spray foam is practically waterproof and doesn't fall apart and out of place. Unfortunately, fiberglass is only a thermal barrier and moist air can quickly flow through creating condensation leading to mold and mildew, and unfortunately, it frequently detaches and falls out of place.

As for lessening the job of the heating and cooling system? Spray foam does an excellent job because of its high R-value per inch. This means that it has a higher resistance to heat flow and a greater insulating value. It also provides more efficient sealing capabilities whereas fiberglass leaves gaps and open space.

Spray foam is durable, so much that critters and insects can't chew through its fibers, unlike fiberglass which is a constant nesting ground for animals and insects.
