Spray Foam

What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray Foam is a spray-applied plastic that forms an insulated, air sealed barrier. Our mobile spray foam rig is stocked with liquid components that are mixed together on the jobsite. The mixed liquids create a reaction that produces a foam product applied directly to walls, roofs and floor joists. Spray Foam has the highest "R-value" of any type of insulation. R-Value measures insulation's ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value, the better the insulation. Spray Foam insulation resists heat transfer extremely well, and reduces unwanted air infiltration through cracks, seams, and joints.

Energy Efficiency for Your Home
As much as 40% of a building's energy is lost due to air infiltration. Poor insulation and air leakage leads to high energy bills and makes your HVAC system work harder than it needs to. Over 50% of the energy used in a home goes to heating and cooling, so your HVAC system has a big effect on utility bills and energy consumption. Insulation and HVAC systems go hand-in-hand. Spray foam insulation can help reduce the workload on your HVAC system thanks to its high R-value and effectiveness. The end result is a comfortable, energy-efficient home. By choosing Spray Foam over traditional fiberglass batting or cellulose insulation, you can save up to 40% on home heating and cooling costs.

Spray Foam for New Construction Projects
Spray Foam is a superior choice for anyone building a new home. Because of its high R-value, Spray Foam actually allows us to install smaller HVAC systems, offsetting the initial cost of your insulation. With spray foam, HVAC sizing can be reduced as much as 35% without the loss of efficiency or comfort. Another benefit? Strength. Spray foam adheres to the surface on which it is sprayed, forming a strong bond. This bond improves a new structure's strength and durability. Spray foam also has natural sound-absorbing properties which helps soundproof a structure.
Spray Foam provides a vapor barrier that isn't available with traditional fiberglass or cellulose insulation. Fiberglass and cellulose products are permeable, allowing air and moisture into your home. Spray Foam is non-permeable, creating an air-tight seal. It also prevents moisture and condensation throughout the building envelope, helping to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Spray Foam Air Sealing for Existing Homes
Air leaks waste energy and increase utility bills. Spray foam can be used to fill in gaps and stop air leakage throughout a home in areas like knee walls, attic hatches, wiring holes, open soffits, recessed lights, furnace flues, basement floor joists, crawl spaces, and around windows and doors.

Cellulose

RSP provides blown-in cellulose insulation services. Our product line, GreenFiber, is a natural fiber cellulose insulation that reduces energy loss and air infiltration in attics and walls. For existing homes that need insulation improvement, we provide drill-and-fill options. Cellulose is ideally suited to provide additional R-value over existing attic insulation because it fills voids and gaps left open by other forms of insulation.

Fiberglass

For a budget-friendly insulation project, we provide a full line of traditional fiberglass batting insulation. Proper installation of fiberglass batting is crucial for maximizing the efficiency of your insulation. Our Home Energy Services crews are trained to install batting properly, neatly and effectively which increases your efficiency level and moves your home improvement project along in a timely manner.

Crawl Space Encapsulations

Crawl space encapsulation can have a tremendous impact on your home. Here are some of the many benefits of crawl space encapsulation:

1. Breathe Easier: Vented crawl spaces have a huge negative impact on indoor air quality. When there is better air quality in the crawl space, there will be better air quality in your living space.

2. Enhance comfort: Once you crawl space is encapsulated, your floors won't be cold in the winter and your home will not be a muggy in the summer.

3. HVAC system longevity: A furnace, air handler or duct work in a vented crawl space does not last as long as a system that is in a conditioned crawl space.

4. Reduce chances of floor repairs: Moisture rots wood and can cause hardwood flooring to buckle. Crawl space encapsulation provides protection from moisture and temperature fluctuations that cause flooring issues.

5. Lower energy bills: Crawl space encapsulation can reduce energy bills by up to 20%.

6. Pest control: A sealed crawl space provides protection against insects, snakes and other pests.
