When thinking about foam insulation in your home, it is important to know the two different options. Closed-cell and open-cell foam have very distinct characteristics. J. Anderson Insulation is your expert for both types and can help you navigate through the process to decide which is better for your home.
Closed cell foam is comprised of tiny cells that are packed together tightly. Those cells are then filled with gas so they can expand and fill any area, no matter the size or the shape. Closed-cell foam is much denser than open-cell, and it can be a great insulator from the outside elements. It has a high R-value, which means it is a great option for any Missouri or Illinois homeowner looking to save money on heating and cooling costs.
Because of its density, closed-cell foam requires more material and is, therefore, a little bit more expensive. It makes up for the price difference with its capability to seal out the outside world and create a cozy and comfortable environment for the homeowner.
Open-cell foam differs in its properties because air fills in the empty space between the cells. It has a much softer feeling than closed cell and can be beneficial in many situations. Even without the dense properties, open-cell foam is a great insulator and is used in many different environments.
