Insulation is your best defense for keeping your home warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. When you think of insulation, many people think of fiberglass insulation that comes in rolls.
Therm-Con offers fiberglass insulation and cellulose, but we also offer spray foam insulation — a newer type of insulation that’s been around since 1986. It’s often used for insulating newer homes but can also be used in existing homes that need an insulation upgrade.

What Is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam insulation is an insulating and air barrier material that can seal walls, ceiling cavities and spaces under flooring to prevent air from seeping through. Most types of spray foam insulation are made by combining two liquids to cause a chemical reaction that forms spray polyurethane foam.
There are two types of spray foam: open cell and closed cell. Open-cell can expand up to 100 times its size and fills every nook and cranny in the area it’s sprayed into. Closed-cell spray foam is denser and makes a continuous air cell. The type used will depend on the spaces to be sealed.

Areas Where Spray Foam Insulation Can Be Used
What makes spray foam insulation so great for new home builds is that it can fill the home’s open cavities. Besides filling inside walls, ceiling cavities and spaces under flooring, it can be used to seal openings for light fixtures, electrical outlets and in areas where walls meet doors and windows.

Benefits of Using Spray Foam To Insulate Chattanooga Homes
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, we lose up to 40% of our heating and cooling costs due to air leakage. That’s basically the same amount of energy you would waste if you left a window open 24 hours a day for the entire year, including during Chattanooga’s cold, wet winters and hot, muggy summers.
Is your goal for insulating your home to have superior protection against air leakage to prevent energy loss? Then spray foam insulation is your best choice because it forms an effective air barrier and seals the space it’s sprayed into as it expands to fill all gaps.
Traditional insulation like fiberglass and cellulose can’t do that. If you want a draft-free and energy-efficient home, spray foam is for you.
Spray foam insulation offers the following benefits for your Chattanooga home:
- It makes your home quieter because noises from the outside are dampened.
- It’s moisture- and fire-resistant.
- It keeps out pests, allergens and pollutants.
- Your floors will be warmer in the winter, and your home will no longer be drafty.
- You could see a reduction in heating and cooling costs.
- It helps reduce wear and tear on your heating and cooling equipment.
