What is spray foam?
Spray foam insulation, also known as polyurethane foam insulation, is a superior form of
insulation that provides a higher thermal insulating value (also known as R or RSI
value) than conventional batt insulation. The application ensures that any gaps are
sealed, providing a vapour barrier, moisture barrier, air barrier and even a radon
barrier, thus stopping any thermal loss due to drafts or leaks. This makes spray foam up
to 50% more energy efficient that other insulation solutions, resulting in cost savings
on energy and gas bills.
It is important to understand that a lot of the heat or cold air loss happens due to the
air leaks on your walls or roofs, and that the cheaper batt insulation installation is
quite susceptible to leaks if the vapour barrier (that layer of poly plastic applied
just before the drywall) is not properly installed or if it becomes damaged. Further,
unlike batt insulation, spray foam insulation does not shift, sag or become wet or
moldy. Rather it adds to the structural integrity of the house, with the added benefit
of keeping out pests or vermin.
offers home and business owners a simple and convenient means of energy saving. Spray
foam insulation can be up to 50% more energy efficient than other forms of insulation,
helping your energy bill remain low during peak seasons. The liquid foam can be sprayed
into the smallest nook and crevice to create a long lasting sealant. After all, air
leakage is the most common reason your energy bills could spike! Foam insulation is also
easier to shape or mold into tight corners, and unlike other forms of insulation, can
maintain its shape and be more successful insulating oddly shaped or nonconforming
areas. In drafty areas like attics and basements, spray foam offers the most efficient
long-term heating and cooling loss prevention while increasing the value and integrity
of your structure.
As lumber prices continue to rise, you can minimize costs on your new home build by
using spray foam insulation instead of batts, achieving the same R value for less money.
For example, instead of using 2x6 studs to accommodate R22 batt insulation, you can use
2x4 studs and achieve the same R22 value with spray foam insulation. Cheap lumber is a
thing of the past, and spray foam insulation on your walls will not only save you money
on lumber, but it will also bring those additional benefits.
