Open Cell Foam Insulation

Benefits of Open Cell Insulation

The most noteworthy advantages of insulating with open cell foam include:

Large Expansion Rate

Open cell spray foam greatly expands after its applied. This means it can effectively fill small cracks and other areas that are difficult to reach. It creates a better airtight seal than other forms of insulation, leaving no area exposed.

Lower Utility Bills

If you invest in open cell insulation, you’re sure to save money on your energy costs. While the savings might not seem substantial at first, they will add up over time.

Long Lasting

Unlike fiberglass insulation, foam insulation will hold its structure for a while. You can expect it to last and won’t have to worry about a replacement.

Thermal and Air Barrier

Since open cell insulation acts as a seamless thermal barrier and air barrier, it allows for optimal efficiency and effectiveness. You may think of it as a winter jacket for your home or business.

Noise Reduction

Open cell insulation is a type of foam with tiny cells that are not completely closed. As soon as it’s applied to any surface, it expands and hardens, acting as an exceptional insulator. Compared to closed cells, open cells are a lower density material made with polyurethane.

This type of insulation can be applied in a variety of places that you don’t have direct access to, including walls, ceilings, roofs, and other hard-to-reach spaces. Plus, it's specifically formulated with anti-microbial ingredients to stop mildew, and bacterial growth.
