Spray Foam Insulation Springfield, MO
How Insulation Works
Insulation, whether it be for a commercial property or home, works in pretty much the same way. It reduces the flow of heat either from the inside or outside of the house that usually happens either by convection, radiation or conduction.
- Radiation: the loss of heat through electromagnetic waves in the air
- Convection: the loss of heat through the transmission to liquids and gases
- Conduction: the loss of heat from one solid object to another

What is Spray Foam Insulation and How Does it Work?
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is a chemical product made by mixing polyol resin and isocyanate. When the two mix as they come into contact with a surface the combination expands to make a foam that air seals, insulates and provides a moisture barrier. Once it is installed, it makes a continuous barrier on contoured surfaces, around corners and inside walls. The continuous barrier makes it an effective solution for keeping unwanted air and moisture out of joints, seams, and cracks. It usually comes in either closed cell or open cell foam and the type you should have installed depends on the use you have for it.
Open-Cell Foam Insulation
Open-cell is made of tiny interconnected bubbles which give it a low R-value of between R-3.5 and R-4. The open-cell foam has lower R-values and is more permeable than its closed cell counterpart. It is also highly flexible and can be applied to a variety of structures.
Its high permeability means that it is not great for damp spaces such as basements or crawlspaces. However, if you are looking for a cheap spray foam it would be your best bet though it is not the best for confined spaces. Moreover, since it absorbs moisture it loses R-Value during installation thus reducing its insulation properties.
Closed-Cell Foam Insulation
This has high R-Value of between R-6 and R-7.1 and hence is great for most insulation projects.
It is effective at air sealing and blocking moisture transmission which makes it very effective for both commercial and residential spaces.
If you have been having issues with places that are prone to moisture such as basements and crawlspaces, then this foam is the best option given its moisture resistant properties.
Benefits of Using Spray Foam in Springfield
1. Reduces Utility Bills
You save money on heating and cooling needs as spray foam insulation has higher R-values that will save you up to 30% more on energy costs as compared to other materials.
2. Provides Airtight Seals
The foam spreads into cracks and joints in your attics, crawlspaces, and walls to keep out the weather. Spray foam insulation provides an airtight seal that is difficult to break.
3. It is Impermeable to Water
It can be installed in places that are prone to moisture and flooding such as crawlspaces and basements, unlike other materials which get wet and lose their insulation qualities.
4. Prevents the Buildup of Mold and Mildew
Since it is made of an inert polymer, mold, and mildew will not grow on it even after years of being installation
5. It lasts for Years
Once installed, the product does not rot and will not even attract rodents or pests and hence it can last for years without needing repairs, replacement or maintenance. It also keeps its R-value over time as compared to other materials such as fiberglass.
6. Strengthen Your Walls and Roof
The product fills up your walls and roofs strengthening them in a way that no other insulation material can.
7. Keeps out contaminants
The airtight seal provided by the foam means you or your family do not have to deal with contaminants such as dust and pollen which means you spend less on HVAC systems thus keeping your costs down.
