ROI of Spray Foam Insulation
When compared to other insulation types like fibreglass or cellulose, the leading advantage is how well spray foam controls air leakage. As much as 40% of the energy lost in homes is the result of air leakage.

Most of air movement takes place through the floors, walls and ceilings. With spray foam insulation this air movement is drastically reduced, and because of spray foam’s excellent air sealing properties, it will also prevent significant air loss from plumbing penetrations, ducts, electrical outlets, basements and many more drafty areas.
Spray foam is a modern alternative that insulates and air-seals. In doing so, you can reap the multi-faceted ROI of spray foam insulation for builders that results in:
- Choosing the right insulation that will have a big impact on energy savings
- Helping speed up the construction schedule since less materials are needed
- Avoid delays
Here is an example of the cost and savings/ROI your homeowners will see with spray foam insulation (of pretty well any brand):
