Spray foam is an effective insulation because it forms an air-tight barrier around your structure-reducing leaks while it insulates. A seal is created that reduces air movement-keeping conditioned air inside and undesirable air outside-which results in increased energy efficiency. This barrier also makes your home more comfortable by reducing drafts and blocking pollen and other allergens.
When spray foam insulation is used with our other green energy technologies, you can typically save 30-50% on heating and cooling costs. That means you use less energy, reducing your CO2 emissions and saving you money.

What make Spray Foam Insulation so effective?
SF is so effective because it is applied as a liquid and expands multiple times its original liquid size in seconds. As it expands, it conforms and fills cavities, crevasses and voids to create a sealed thermal envelope. SF creates a highly-efficient seal against air filtration, the number one source of energy loss in a structure.
How does Spray Foam Insulation save the consumer money?
While the initial cost of installation may be higher than traditional insulation, the savings in the monthly utility bills outweigh the extra cost and results in a positive cash flow. When paired with other responsible building components, Spray Foam can reduce monthly heating and cooling bills by 30 to 50% when compared to traditionally insulated foam.
As an example Spray Foam may increase your monthly mortgage by $15, but decrease your monthly utility bills by $65, providing a net savings of $50 each month.
