Why Spray Foam Insulation is the Best Choice

The benefits of spray foam insulation in the home are often overlooked. Unfortunately, many homeowners aren’t aware of the importance of spray foam insulation, and they decide the cost and commitment aren’t worth it.

But Canadian homes need quality insulation, and there is just no better choice than spray foam insulation! Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) performs better than all other types of insulation, and whether you judge it for its efficiency, mold deterrence, sound-proofing, or other qualities, it’s the best choice every time.

Here’s why.

1) It’s Efficient

Spray foam is made from two materials (isocyanate and polyol resin), and when they’re combined, they expand to fill the space they’re in and then harden. In fact, when these materials are mixed, they grow to 30-60 times their liquid capacity, which is much higher than other types of insulation. Spray foam’s resistance value (R-value) is R-6, and that’s the highest rank available! This means that spray foam seals nooks and crannies much more efficiently than other types of insulation.

2) It’s Eco-Friendly

Because spray foam is so efficient, it reduces energy consumption in the home that would otherwise be used to heat or cool the home. It is also designed to last longer than other types of insulation, which means fewer materials need to be utilized. Lastly, it helps prevent moisture and mold growth making a healthier home environment! Spray foam is water-resistant and the polymer it is made of offers no sustenance for mold or bacteria to grow.

3) It Will Save You Money

While spray foam may be more expensive up front than other types of insulation, over time it can save families money in a several ways. Because spray foam needs to be replaced less often than other types of insulation, you won’t have to invest in installation fees as often. Secondly, because spray foam is energy-efficient, you will save money on your energy bills. Spray foam has been proven to be 24 times less porous and vulnerable to air than other types of insulation. Thanks to its efficient nature, SPF may provide energy savings of up to 50% compared to other insulations providing a savings rate of up to 30%.
