What is Green Earth Spray Foam Insulation?What is Green Earth Spray Foam Insulation?

Green Earth Spray Foam is a popular solution that South Central Services uses in many projects. However, many people have questions about what spray foam insulation is made of and how it insulates.

Spray foam is a type of polyurethane plastic. Two liquid chemical components undergo a chemical reaction to form the spray foam, which is then sprayed from a special gun that allows it to expand and fill a space. The chemical composition of the foam varies between different manufacturers, but they all share some basic properties. Most contain Class One fire rated materials and have low environmental impact. The two chemicals are commonly referred to as the A and B side, although each manufacturer will have their own unique blend of the ingredients.

How Spray Foam Insulation Improves Energy Efficiency

When sprayed, the liquid spray foam forms small pockets or cells that create air gaps and barriers, which makes it a superior insulator. These air pockets make it difficult for heat energy to pass through them, and they also help prevent sound from traveling between rooms or walls.

Before spraying, the crew will prepare the area by cleaning and ensuring that it’s free of dust and debris. They may remove any existing insulation from the area to be sprayed. If the project is new construction, they will incorporate spray foam into the wall framing. Otherwise, they can use a technology called Wall Injection to retrofit existing walls.

Closed-cell spray foam is the most versatile, and it can be used in both new and existing buildings. This insulation is moisture and vapor resistant, which means that homeowners don’t need to install a separate vapor barrier. It also conforms to the unique design of a home or building, meaning it can fit in hard-to-reach spaces and complicated structures.
