If you’re wondering what injection foam insulation is and why you might need it, you’ve come to the right place.
What is injection foam insulation?
Unlike other methods of upgrading insulation, injection foam is quickly and easily installed without causing a huge disturbance to your life. With our process, there is no need to tear off drywall/plaster or open up large holes inside. Injection foam insulation is installed through small holes in the exterior of the home, generally underneath the existing siding. Our foam insulation is a mixture of aqueous resin and foaming agent that turn from liquids to foam when combined. The consistency of the foam is thick and looks just like white shaving cream. Using pressure from compressed air, the foam can be injected into nearly any wall cavity, where it fills the wall and seals cracks and crevices. The foam sets into a solid very quickly, enhancing the home’s thermal envelope and defending against air infiltration.
Why would anyone need to install foam insulation?
Our type of injection foam insulation can be used in many different applications. One of the most common uses is retrofitting older homes that need upgraded insulation. According to an article on Builder Online, approximately 90% of US homes are under-insulated (Goodman, 2015). This is especially true if you consider today’s modern heating and cooling systems and how they differ from the methods of the past. In 2023, we like to keep our homes at a consistent temperature year-round regardless of outside temperatures. Insulation is so important for maintaining the comfortable homeostasis that you crave in your home. It is common for homeowners to spend thousands on improving HVAC, but never think twice about how much heat or cold is escaping through their walls.

One drawback of injection foam? It is not a DIY project. We love to do things ourselves whenever possible, but this is just one of those times where you’ll have to hire a professional. We have a lot of specialized equipment that is just not available or reasonable for the general public to acquire or learn how to use (Larusso, 2022).
