Why is insulation my first step in energy efficiency?
A high performing insulation system will minimize heat loss
and air leakage throughout the buildings thermal boundary. Reduced heat loss = less work for your heating system. The benefits of a properly insulated home include, lowered heating bills, increased occupant comfort and peace of mind. Greenfoot energy advisors are trained in building science, we take great pride in recommending effective insulation systems.
What is difference between open cell & closed cell foam?
With a more compact structure, closed-cell foam is a higher-density spray foam insulation and has many advantages in high moisture content areas such as basements, crawlspaces, exposed floors, sloped ceilings and more. It is water- resistant, while also serving as a vapour barrier and high performance air barrier. With R-values tested @ R-6 per inch, no wonder this is the preferred choice for insulating your home or business.
Open cell spray foam (AKA ½ lbs foam) would be mostly installed in typical above grade wall applications since moisture can flow through the foam. It will require a vapour barrier and its R-value has been tested @ R-4 per inch. This system would not be recommended in basements unless installed in a dry environment along with a moisture barrier on the concrete wall up to the grade level and then foam installed between framing studs with a vapour barier sealed with acoustic sealant. Not following these steps could lead to possible mold & mildue issues.
Bottom line, in most cases where foam is needed, the most common solution is closed cell polyurethane foam (AKA 2lbs foam)
