When it comes to insulating your home, there are many options available. Fiberglass, cellulose, and even blown-in foam are all good choices that can help keep your house comfortable and energy efficient. But one insulation option that is becoming more popular is spray foam insulation. This type of spray foam insulation can be sprayed into spaces that are hard to reach with other types of insulation, including the attic and roof cavities, exterior foundation walls, and basements and crawl spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions About Spray Foam Insulation

When spray foam is sprayed, it expands to fill the space and create air gaps and barriers that make it difficult for heat energy to pass through. The foam also creates a tight seal in the building envelope that prevents air leaks, which can save you money on your utility bills year-round.

During the application process, it is important to wear protective gear. This includes gloves, goggles, and a breathing apparatus. This is because the chemicals in spray foam can be irritative to the skin and respiratory system. The type of spray foam used will also impact the toxicity. For example, some manufacturers use a blowing agent that is derived from hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). However, there are now spray foam insulation products that are free of HCFCs and HFCs called Ecomate and BASF Walltite CM01.

While spray foam can be sprayed by capable DIY enthusiasts, it’s best to have a professional install it. The professionals have access to specialized rigs that can ensure the spray foam is mixed and sprayed correctly. They can also monitor the temperature of the spray foam as it dries to ensure it is at a safe working temperature.
