insulation company is applied on-site and conforms to the space being insulated. It creates a tight building envelope, which improves energy efficiency and comfort. It also reduces drafts and cold spots, making it a great choice for older homes and new construction.

How HD Spray Foam Insulation Improves Indoor Air Quality

During the installation process, a crew sprays a mixture of two chemicals from an aerosol can over the area that needs to be insulated. The chemicals react with each other to expand and harden into place. The sprayer can cover areas such as attics, crawl spaces and rim joists in existing homes; and walls, ceilings and studs in new construction or pole barns.

It’s recommended that home occupants vacate the house during this process, because spray foam insulation off-gases high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) while it’s being sprayed and after it cures. This can cause respiratory irritation if you’re breathing them directly during the process, but they will dissipate as soon as the foam is allowed to dry.

There are two types of spray foam: open cell and closed cell. Open cell foam consists of cells that aren’t completely enclosed, so it tends to be softer and more flexible than closed-cell spray foam. It usually uses water or carbon dioxide as a blowing agent, which makes it less harmful to the environment than its closed-cell counterparts. But it still absorbs moisture and vapor and may require the use of a vapor barrier in certain applications.
