It would benefit you by saving cost on energy for sure. If you look at your annual spend and the percent this insulation will save you, you can calculate your return on investment for foam installation. You should also consider spray-in cellulose. If you are putting spray foam in an existing wall...be careful the expansion doesn't damage the wall board.
