Benefits Of Spray Foam Insulation Part 1
As you might know, there are two versions of spray foam insulation available today: closed cell and open cell. Open-cell is usually the cheaper, and it’s better at blocking noises inside your Minnesota home. On the other hand, a closed cell is dense and it’s better at preventing air and water from seeping through the walls. Open cell insulation tends to be more spongy, due to the air that gets inside the cells whereas closed cell insulation is more rigid and solid. Regardless of these differences, there are benefits that are common to both these types. We’ll briefly mention some in this blog and others in the next part of this series.

Spray foams is excellent at getting into small cracks and crevices. Once the foam is applied directly into the cracks, it expands and dries quickly; this further blocks air and water. But this expansion also has more benefit up its sleeve: it is a blockade for heat and cold as well. This translates to a significant reduction in your utilities bills and big savings in the long run.
Although fiberglass insulation is a common choice, many users later realize that it isn’t so durable. Fiberglass insulation breaks over the years. The same is the case with styrofoam insulation. Therefore, you’ll need to replace them roughly every ten years. But here comes spray foam. Spray foam insulation is virtually immune to sagging or breaking even over long periods of time. Thus, even though its initial investment is relatively more, spray foam saves you money in long-term.
A Green Choice
Insulation inherently is an eco-friendly move. Why? Once you get insulation, there is drastically less load on your Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems. When they work less, you consume less electricity. Moreover, because spray foam is so durable, you don’t need to replace it as frequently as you would have to for other insulation. Thus, it consumes less materials. And the best part is that, when professionally handled, it is recyclable!
