Remember when a pink panther held the monopoly on home insulation? Those days are gone. Today homeowners, contractors and building scientists (the experts who study home energy performance) spend a lot of time talking about foam insulation. But this newly popular insulation can come in many forms. Right now, let's consider the differences between the spray foam and rigid foam. More specifically, we can compare the closed-cell spray foam that requires two components to be mixed at the application nozzle, and the rigid foam insulation boards that come in different thicknesses.
Both two-component spray foam and rigid foam are useful for improving home energy performance. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide whether spray foam or rigid foam is best for a particular application.
