Spray Foam Insulation

Posted by ARC Insulation April 4th, 2024

When it comes to adding insulation to your Chicagoland home, it’s important to know that your investment is going to adequately achieve your goal of improved home comfort and energy efficiency. 

At ARC Insulation, we often see homeowners in the Naperville area who have fiberglass insulation but still struggle to maintain affordable utility bills and temperature control throughout the year. If this sounds like you, then we can help determine if spray foam insulation would be a good option for your home.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation 

Spray foam insulation is made from a combination of two chemicals, polyurethane and isocyanate, that when combined, form a foam solution that expands and hardens when it dries. Spray foam provides exceptional coverage of a home’s walls, joints, and hard-to-reach spaces, making it a great insulation option for attics, basements, and more. 

Spray foam insulation is a superior choice for insulation because it air seals as well as insulates, providing several whole-home benefits that include:

  • High R-value & insulating capabilities 
  • Long-lasting 
  • Improves home structure
  • Promotes healthy indoor air
  • Moisture protection

Types of Spray Foam Insulation 

Spray foam insulation is filled with air bubbles called cells. There are two types that are used for insulation, open cell and closed cell. Both types of spray foam have slightly different qualities and our team of Chicago spray foam contractors can help determine which option is best for your home’s specific needs. 

Open cell spray foam insulation has cells that are partially exposed and have some space between them. This results in a final product that’s more malleable, making it a great solution for interior applications like walls. 

Closed cell spray foam insulation contains cells that are fully enclosed with no space in between them. The end result is a product that is rigid and provides protection from moisture. Closed cell foam is a great choice for attics, basements, and crawl spaces.  

Why Professional Spray Foam Insulation Matters

Installing spray foam insulation is a complicated process that requires attention to detail, which is why spray foam should always be installed by a professional. Using an incorrect ratio of chemicals or poor installation methods can end in damage to your home or a health risk for you and your family. With spray foam insulation installed by the professionals at ARC Insulation, you can be sure that your home will be safe and protected.
