Closed Cell Foam Insulation

Benefits of Closed Cell Insulation

The greatest advantages of closed cell insulation include:

Impressive R-Value

R-value explains how well a type of insulation can keep heat from leaving or entering a property. Since closed cell spray foam can tightly seal any nooks and crannies effectively, it’s no surprise that its R-value per inch is 7, which is the highest on the market.

Unmatched Energy Savings

Closed cell insulation serves as an exceptional air barrier, allowing for extreme energy efficiency. In fact, it’s been proven to offer an average energy savings of up to 50% or even more.

Air Tight Seal

Air leaks and high energy bills go hand in hand. Closed cell spray foam has the ability to thoroughly seal holes and cracks in your attic or crawl space. It creates an airtight seal that is rarely seen with other types of insulation.

Moisture Barrier

Unless your cracks and holes are properly sealed, water and moisture can easily seep through them. Thanks to its airtight sealing capability, closed cell insulation can protect against airborne leaks

Mildew Protector

Spray foam is made of a special polymer that doesn’t provide any food for mildew or bacteria. If your home or business is insulated with closed cell spray foam, it will be well protected against mildew.

Long Life Span

The polymer in spray foam allows closed cell insulation to stand the test of time. You can enjoy it for years without having to reinsulate.

Increased House Racking Strength

Closed cell insulation can tighten your structure and in turn, improve the sturdiness of your building.

Closed cell insulation is denser than open-cell and features a smaller, more compact structure. Closed cells cover more area than open cells and are therefore more effective at keeping moisture out. Since closed cell spray foams are filled with a gas, they tend to be stronger and offer more stability.

If your home or business is located in an area with extreme weather conditions, Butcher Insulation may recommend the closed cell option as it won’t allow water to pass through. It’s a great way to reduce your energy consumption and create a “greener” space.
