While the cost of spray foam insulation may initially be higher for homeowners and businesses, because of its durability and reduction in energy costs, opting for spray foam insulation can actually save money in the future. Spray foam insulation is available in two different types: open-cell and closed-cell. Knowing which option is right for your project is essential to accurate application and longevity.
The type of spray foam insulation you chose depends on where you are applying it – interior or exterior – and the R-value you wish to achieve. The R-value is the measurement of the insulation resistance to heat flow, and the greater the number per unit thickness, the better it is at keeping air out.
Closed-cell spray foam has a higher R-value than open cell foam, averaging around R-6 and R-3.5 respectively. No matter which spray foam you use, it will always have a higher R-value than traditional fiberglass insulation or blown insulation.
