The insulation you choose for your home can be an overwhelming terrain to stumble through, particularly if you are unsure what is the best insulation for your home. Your friends and family may tell you one thing, while a contractor tells you another, and what you’ve seen recommended on home renovation programs on TV may contradict the others, leaving you with all kinds of questions. For instance, is spray in insulation the same as spray foam insulation?
It’s confusing, but the answer is no, spray in insulation is not necessarily the same thing as spray foam insulation. You see, spray foam insulation like Icynene is sprayed in by their licensed contractors, to create an effective air seal where it is applied, however cellulose insulation can also be “sprayed in” by a contractor.
But what is the difference? Cellulose insulation doesn’t have the ability to effectively air seal a home, the way that Icynene spray foam insulation can. That air seal can help to lower monthly heating and cooling bills, due to increased energy efficiency that can come as a result of installing Icynene spray foam insulation.
