Energy Conservation Insulation is proud to announce that our closed cell spray foam has the new HFO blowing agent!
Why are we excited about this:
Hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) molecules contain at least one carbon-carbon double bond that makes them highly reactive in the atmosphere, giving them a very short life - which is why they have such a small impact as a greenhouse gas.
The global warming potential (GWP) of hydroflurocarbons (HFC) blowing agents was as high as 1,430, the GWP of the new HFO blowing agents is 1. You don't need to be a mathematician to know that's a pretty impressive improvement, and unlike its predecessors it doesn't solve one planetary emergency by exacerbating another.

Spray foam insulation is an investment that offers homeowners the opportunity to achieve a return on investment through heating and cooling savings every month. Sprayed foam insulation does have a greater initial investment than more traditional insulation options such as fiberglass insulation, mineral wool insulation and cellulose insulation. The cost of spray foam insulation is influenced by several factors including quantity, labor, building code requirements and spray foam insulation type.
Some of the many benefits of spray foam are:
By air sealing attic spaces, walls and sub-flooring, spray foam insulation prevents conditioned air from escaping and extreme exterior temperatures from infiltrating a home. Energy waste can result in unwanted costly utility bills!
As soon as spray foam has been applied in your structure, whether it is installed while the home is being built, or as a retro application, homeowners see an immediate improvement in the overall comfort of their home. The air sealing means that heated and cooled air stays where it’s needed: in the home. HVAC units, therefore, do not have to cycle on and off all day to maintain comfortable temperatures, adding to the savings on your heating and cooling costs. In addition to lower monthly operating bills, you will find that the life of your mechanical systems will be drastically lengthened!
By reducing the strain on your HVAC unit, spray foam insulation actually extends the life of this hard-working appliance. Allowing your heating and cooling system to work smarter, not harder, means a lot less wear and tear and less money spent on repairs and replacements
Homes that have spray foam insulation installed have increased their structures shear strength considerably. Many of our clients who have had spray foam applied in their existing homes have stated that the creaks and squeaks of their aging homes have gone away! The increased strength in the structure also allows for homes to have a better chance of withstanding big weather events such as the wind storms we get in Central Oregon!
Homeowners who have had their homes insulated with spray foam typically have to look outside to see what the weather is doing because their homes are so quiet! Besides having an efficient home, homeowners also get to experience a quiet home as well!
