Spray Foam Insulation by Lx5 Insulators of TulsaSpray Foam Insulation by Lx5 Insulators of Tulsa

When it comes to insulating a home, there are many different options on the market. One that is becoming increasingly popular is spray foam insulation. This type of insulation is sprayed on to the area that needs insulated and then expands to fill any cracks or voids. This allows for a completely sealed thermal envelope, which helps keep conditioned air in your home and prevents unwanted outside air from entering.

This type of insulation is available in two forms: open- and closed-cell. Closed-cell foam uses polyurethane, which is an environmentally friendly material. Open-cell foam uses a blowing agent that is lower in Global Warming Potential (GWP) than other alternatives. Some of the most common brand names of closed-cell foam include HandiFoam High Density and Gaco spray foam insulation. Both of these brands use a low GWP blowing agent that contains post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled plastics, as well as other natural sources.

The advantages of spray foam insulation are numerous. It helps to reduce your energy bills by sealing the building envelope, preventing hot or cold air from escaping and allowing conditioned air to stay in your home longer. This can lead to substantial savings on your energy bills each year. Foam insulation also provides a barrier against pests and noise, helping to keep your home clean and comfortable.

Before the spraying process can begin, the crew will typically have to clear out the space in which the foam will be applied. This may involve removing old insulation, if necessary. The crew will then run a hose to the area that needs sprayed, whether this is an attic or a crawl space in an existing home or a rim joist in new construction or a pole barn. The foam is sprayed using a special rig that is designed to mix and spray the perfect amount of foam.
