Roughly 33% of the air in your home is escaping through the tiny holes, cracks, and crevices in your ceiling, walls, and floors. This means that your heating and cooling systems are continuously running in an attempt to keep your home at the set temperature…and you’re paying for it!

Adding spray foam insulation with Spray it Green and Certainteed CertaSpray spray foam insulation system can maximize your investments and keep the conditioned air indoors where it belongs. Not only will this reduce your energy bills, it will also cause your heating and cooling systems to run less, last longer, and operate more efficiently!

Spray Foam Types

There are two types of spray foam: closed-cell insulation and open-cell insulation. Both are very similar in that they provide numerous benefits compared to traditional insulation and have slight differences when compared to each other.

Primarily, Spray it Green uses Lapolla FOAM-LOK insulation. To learn about Lapolla FOAM-LOK, please visit Lapolla’s website.
