The Best Insulation for Existing Homes
RetroFoam is a tripolymer based resin that creates an odor-free, non-toxic foam insulation.
This injection foam doesn’t off-gas, is Class One Fire Rated, and safe to have in your home.
It comes down to how both are installed.
Spray foam is sprayed into open cavities like attics, crawl spaces, and rim joists, while injection foam, like RetroFoam insulation, is injected into enclosed cavities like walls.
The amount you save on monthly energy bills can vary depending on your home's age and construction.
Your lifestyle can also play a role, depending on your thermostat settings and your electrical usage.
Sound deadening is an added bonus of RetroFoam insulation.
While injection foam won’t completely soundproof your home, it will help make it a little quieter.
