The spray foam industry is on its way up, with Accufoam leading the way. Whether you’re a seasoned user of spray polyurethane foam or still unsure of what your clients need, starting at Accufoam is your best option.

 

Trends in the industry

From 2019 to 2024, the North American spray foam insulation market is expected to grow at a rate of 6% year over year.

This is largely due to the fact that spray polyurethane foam proves to be more efficient, dependable, and promising than traditional insulation methods.

Closed cell vs. open-cell, what is being sprayed the most?

Actually, it’s both! The type of foam used in a project is influenced by the regional climate and local R-value requirements. Closed-cell spray foams are popular because they create an air and water vapor barrier, and generally provide a higher R-value per inch than open-cell foams.

This means that closed-cell spray foams are most useful in extreme temperatures, keeping heat inside or outside of a building.

Due to their flexibility and softness, open-cell spray foams are helpful for reaching nooks and crannies. Open-cell foams are also ideal for sound-proofing due to the way they expand, and, in the hands of a skilled professional, can be applied in one pass!

Open-cell foams are great for more temperate climates with less-extreme temperatures, and they slow air filtration better than traditional fiberglass insulation meaning healthier air inside the building.

 

Is spray polyurethane foam (SPF) cost-effective?

All of the financial benefits of installing spray polyurethane foam become apparent not long after installation. Besides the comfort of insulation, which is especially important in unprecedented winters like this one, many benefits for the future come from spray foam application. 

Across the board, SPF application is cost-effective because if it goes undamaged, it should last a lifetime. This means that your work as a contractor will be reputable for being long-lasting, safe, and dependable, the most important qualities for contracting. 

The process also reduces HVAC equipment needs in the future, which leads to low equipment costs. Resale value on homes with spray polyurethane foam installed is higher, due to many states giving a Home Energy Ratings Score (HERS) to houses on the market. 

For the customer, application will save money on their energy bills and since it minimizes air filtration, the customer will enjoy breathing air with fewer contaminants like dust and microbes.
