Spray Foam Insulation

Living in Central New York means hot summers and freezing winters, and local homeowners need high quality insulation to keep their houses comfortable and affordable to heat and cool year-round. Energy Savers installs spray foam insulation because it offers a number of benefits, including:

  • One of the highest R-values of any insulation material
  • All-in-one insulation and air sealing
  • Vapor and moisture barrier (closed cell spray foam)

How Is Spray Foam Installed?

Spray foam insulation, or spray polyurethane foam (SPF), is created by mixing isocyanate and polyol resin. Like the name suggests, spray foam is sprayed out of a hose. The chemicals are mixed in the spraying process, and when combined they expand before hardening in place and creating a long-lasting protective barrier.

There are two main types of spray foam insulation—closed cell and open cell. Open cell is lighter but can expand as much 100x its original size to fill hard-to-reach nooks and crannies in a home. Closed cell is dense but provides an ultra-high layer of protection and also acts as a vapor and moisture barrier.

Where is Spray Foam Used in a Home?

Spray foam insulation is incredibly versatile and can be used throughout Central New York homes, including:

Spray foam as attic insulation

Unlike other insulation materials, spray foam is typically applied to your attic rafters (the underside of your roof), where it blocks heat and air from moving in and out of your home. Installing spray foam in your attic can help prevent ice dams in the winter.

Spray foam as exterior wall insulation

The exterior walls of your home are the part of your house often most exposed to the elements, which is why upgrading to spray foam insulation can help:

  • Lower heating and cooling costs
  • Reduce energy waste
  • Prevent indoor drafts
  • Improve indoor air quality by keeping outdoor air pollutants out of your home

Spray foam insulation in your basement or crawlspace

Basements and crawlspaces in Central New York can be areas where moisture and humidity are most likely to enter a home, leading to unhealthy indoor air, mold growth, comfort issues, and high energy bills. Damp basements can also reduce the effectiveness of certain insulation materials.

Closed cell spray foam insulation is particularly well-suited to basements and crawlspaces because it can help keep water, moisture, and humidity out.
