FL Master Foam Techs LLC creates a tight seal between the walls, ceiling and floor of your home. It also helps block air movement and keeps moisture out. The airtight barrier it provides can help reduce the workload on your HVAC system, lowering your energy bills in both summer and winter.

This type of insulation is composed of a mixture of two liquids that, when combined and sprayed on a surface, expand to fill every crack and crevice. It is a versatile material that can be used in basements, attics, crawl spaces, knee walls, overhangs and bonus rooms. Spray foam insulation is commonly used during the rough-in stage in new construction projects to fill voids and gaps where electrical wiring, plumbing and HVAC are installed.

Exploring the Different Types of Spray Foam Insulation

It is an eco-friendly material that has become much more “green” in recent years, thanks to advancements in blowing agents (the gasses used to help the foam take shape). The polyurethane that spray foam insulation is made from has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1, while the blowing agent used in the majority of products on the market today has a GWP of over 3,400 times higher than carbon dioxide.

Additionally, the airtight seal that sprays foam provides makes it less likely for moisture to penetrate into your house, helping prevent places like your attic and crawl space from becoming damp, humid environments where mildew and mold can grow. This can save you money on costly repairs and maintenance, as well as reduce your need for dehumidifiers to keep the indoor air in your home dry and healthy.
