Why Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation Might Be A Great Choice For Your Home

by Wade Black

If your home is not properly insulated, or if you would simply like to add additional insulation, then you might be thinking about using spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation is a budget-friendly, easy-to-install insulation choice, and it typically does a great job of insulating structures. Of course, you will need to decide if you want to use open cell or closed cell spray foam insulation. Although either one can be a good option for insulating your home, you might find that you will want to go with open cell spray foam insulation for these reasons.

It Can Help You Enjoy Your Peace and Quiet

Many people don't often think about the soundproofing qualities of insulation when installing it in their homes. However, along with providing other benefits for you and your family, insulation can also help you make your home more peaceful and quiet. This is particularly true if you choose open cell spray foam insulation since it's particularly useful for blocking out sounds.

By installing it in your exterior walls, you can help block out the noises from outside. This can be particularly handy if you live in a busy neighborhood, if your home is located near a major highway, or if you deal with noises from your neighbors. If you install open cell spray foam insulation in your interior walls, you might find that it will help with reducing the noise that travels from one room to another. This can be a good thing if you work from home and would like a nice and quiet office or if you have teenagers who often play their music just a little bit louder than you would like.

It's Cheaper

Spray foam insulation is already one of the more affordable insulation options that you can use in your home. However, if you choose closed cell spray foam insulation, you will probably find that it's a bit more expensive than open cell spray foam insulation. Therefore, if you are very budget-minded and would like to choose the insulation option that is going to be most affordable for your home, then you may want to choose open cell spray foam insulation. If you rent the equipment to install it yourself and do it on your own, then you can save even more money over hiring a professional for your spray foam insulation installation, too.
