Spray Foam Insulation

Insulation Installers in Maryland

The hype about spray foam insulation is real. It’s the best insulation for the money, especially in homes that currently have high heating and cooling bills. Spray foam increases comfort levels and saves energy by sealing up walls, attics, and basements more effectively and permanently than fiberglass or denim insulation. Potomac View Energy installs spray foam insulation in Maryland and Northern Virginia by highly trained professionals who can do the job right.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation:

    • Won’t settle over time – Unlike fiberglass and cellulose products, spray foam won’t settle. Experienced installers can fill cracks and cavities that would otherwise leak air. Spray foam simply insulates better for the long haul.
    • High efficiency and air quality – While it costs more than some other options, it provides an excellent R-value per inch (so you can use less and save more energy). Open-cell and closed-cell varieties give you options for spray foam insulation in different parts of the home for improved performance and moisture barriers, too.
    • Installation anywhere – Existing homes with mediocre insulation can get foam sprayed wherever it needs to go, with minimal disruption to the walls. Your old insulation can even be left right where it is, with the spray foam added on and around it!

Open-Cell vs. Closed-Cell Spray Foam

Most of the time when people talk about spray foam, they’re referring to closed-cell foam. This is a dense material that blocks moisture, making it excellent for use as basement insulation or attic insulation. Many areas of the home can add closed-cell spray foam without having to install an additional vapor barrier.

Open-cell foam weighs less, costs less, and can be installed more easily in tight spaces because it expands after spraying. With a lower R-value, it may not produce the same energy savings as closed-cell, but it’s a great option for adding insulation in leaky areas.
