The benefits of choosing spray foam insulation
Duty free energy efficient solutionLearn more
By far, spray foam insulation is the number one option for insulating your house in today's market. Being that the foam is applied as a liquid form at the beginning of its application while it is expanding into foam it seals all small gaps in your roof or walls, making your home airtight which prevents heat from entering your home and eventually into your air-conditioned space. Unlike fiberglass insulation it comes in large rolls, it has to be cut and stapled to the surface. Because fiberglass insulation can’t be cut so precisely it leaves gaps on its edges where heat and draft air can bypass. Also, In most cases, fiberglass insulation is placed on the ceiling of your house or the floor of your attic and not on the surface of your roof where 90% of the heat source is entering your home. So your attic becomes a hot box which causes tremendous stress on your air-conditioning unit and personal items that you store in the attic.
Eco House recommends Open Cell to clients with wooden roofs or walls. The reason for this is in case of a leak in your roof the water is able to drip through the open cell indicating where the leak is coming from and making it easier for your contractor to rectify the problem. It is also a much cheaper application for those on a budget, but wanting to get the same thermal barrier protection as you would with 3 inches of close cell.
Close Cell insulation has a very dense structure. It's almost like a concert when cured. It’s great for adding structural strength to your roof or walls which adds some level of comfort during hurricane encounters. The close cell also acts as a moisture barrier so it will not absorb water making it a great option for spraying in areas that are dusty and moist like concrete surfaces. Being that it has such a high R-Value per inch it is perfect for spraying in areas with very limited spaces that need a high thermal barrier. Close cell has an R-Value of 21 at 3 inches thick compared to an open cell has an R-value of 24 at 6 inches thick.
Eco House recommends close cell to its clients with concrete roofs or walls only, because it retains moisture. It is also recommended for areas with limited space but needs a high thermal barrier.

“I wanted to share some feedback on the performance from an energy efficiency point of view. We got our service done in late August, so September was the first full month. Our bill in August was $831.98..read more and our usage was 2,254 kWh, so high that we didn't qualify for the government subsidy program that is currently going on. Our September bill had a usage of 1616 kWh, which allowed us to qualify for the government subsidy program and saved us an additional $128.37. However, even without that, our bill would have been $603.50. That's a savings of about 28% when comparing apples to apples as the fuel factor barely changed over the 2 months (actually increased by 2.4%). Although September is typically slightly cooler than August, I would be very comfortable in saying that the spray foam was responsible for at least a 20% reduction in our bill. Thanks for the service and I can genuinely say that it makes a real difference.”
“Thank you for doing an amazing job! There was hardly any mess to clean up. I haven’t heard any complaints about allergies or asthma from the tenants. And you guys finished sooner than scheduled.”
“I contacted the Eco House Team to get a free quote and learn more about their product. From start to finish they have been very responsive, thorough and punctual.I was impressed how quickly..read more and efficiently the job was completed, only in two days and our single family home of 2 500 sq. ft. has changed drastically from having a hot attic to cool storage space, which created more room for storing items and has saved us at least $150 each month on our electricity. I believe we will get our money's worth within the first few years”
