What is foam insulation?
Spray foam insulation is a material that creates an airtight barrier. It can be used in walls, ceilings, or floors to stop air movement. Spray foam is a perfect insulation solution for attics, crawlspaces, light fixtures, electrical outlets, and much more. One of the best aspects of spray foam is that it never loses its shape. Unlike other traditional insulation materials, it won’t compress or sag over the years.
What are the types of spray foam?

There are multiple types, and each is formulated for specific buildings or areas of your home or business. Spray foam options include open and closed cell.

Open cell

Open cell foam insulation is soft, pliable, and sponge-like. Not only does it outperform traditional insulation materials, but it can also reduce sound noise. Therefore, open cell spray foam makes a great choice if your home or business is located on a busy street with plenty of traffic noise.

This type of spray insulation can expand up to 100 times its original size. That makes it a perfect option for awkward crevices that can’t easily be filled with traditional insulation materials. The material is also light, so it won’t put stress on areas of your building that aren’t built to bear a significant amount of weight.

Open cell spray foam is often a good option for new construction because as your building settles, the insulation moves with the building and won’t crack, bend, or warp.

In many cases, open cell spray foam is cheaper than closed cell, but several factors go into the price. Our 5C Energy, Inc. team will provide an accurate cost estimate before beginning any insulation services.

Closed cell
Closed cell spray foam is perfect for sealing out airflow. Use it in new construction or remodeling projects. This style of foam also reduces noises and is mildew resistant, making it a great option for areas that might get wet.  Closed cell is rigid and deemed flood-resistant by FEMA, making it a great option if you live near a creek, stream, or river that is prone to overflowing its banks. Because this type of foam is built tough, it rejects water flow during floods or heavy rainfalls. Closed cell foam makes a great choice for both interior and exterior applications.  The 5C Energy team can help you determine which foam insulation is best for your property and educate you regarding the differences.

Why select spray foam over other insulation materials?

Spray foam is a top-quality product for sealing drafts in any type of building. And because it does such a good job, you’ll see your utility bills drop in both the winter and summer. After installing, you’ll notice that your home or business is less drafty.

Do you ever notice condensation on your walls?

In houses with poor insulation, condensation can form on your walls when there are significant temperatures between the outside and inside. Foam insulation stops condensation from forming because it totally blocks the airflow between the outside and inside. Therefore, foam insulation is a great choice to reduce mold growth in your home.

Foam can also limit the risks of water pooling on your roof during the winter. That is especially important because of the amount of snow we get every year in the Northeast. Ice dams on your roof form when the heat from a poorly insulated attic radiates through the roof, melting the snow on top. Then, the melting snow runs down the roof and dams at the gutters, putting your roof at risk of significant damage.

By utilizing spray foam to insulate your attic, it reduces the risk of costly ice dams on your roof during the winter months.

In short, traditional insulation materials don’t provide the number of benefits that spray foam can. As traditional insulation ages, it allows more and more air through, making it inefficient and costly in terms of increased utility bills.
