How Spray Foam Insulation Is Installed

When properly installed by an expert, spray foam insulation can be a great investment in your home. It can significantly lower your energy bills and reduce the need for costly repairs. Additionally, it helps to protect your home from rodents and insects, and some types of urethane foam can also help block moisture, which can prevent mold growth.

During a spray foam installation, contractors run a hose from a large tank to the attic or rim joist of an existing building. The hose then mixes 2 composite materials, polyurethane and isocyanate, together and they react to expand and harden into a protective insulation. The result is a dense, airtight seal that can be applied to any cavity in your home or business.

A professional installer will use a high-end rig that ensures the foam is mixed and sprayed evenly throughout the entire project area. The rigs also monitor the temperature of the foam to make sure it is the correct consistency.

One of the reasons spray foam is considered green is because it can be made from recycled products. Moreover, it does not contain any asbestos or formaldehyde and does not off-gas like fiberglass and cellulose. It is important to note that the blowing agents used in the manufacture of some spray foam insulation are hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, which have a global warming potential over 3,400 times greater than CO2.
