and PVC Installation in Clare.

Spray foam is a type of insulation that is sprayed in place through a gun. Polyurethane and Isocyanate foams are applied as a two-component mixture that comes together at the tip of a gun, and forms an expanding foam. Cementitious foam is applied in a similar manner but does not expand. Spray foam insulation is sprayed onto concrete slabs, into wall cavities of an unfinished wall, against the interior side of sheathing, or through holes drilled in sheathing or drywall into the wall cavity of a finished wall

Over 95% of Irish householders, apartment occupants use heating for more than 335 days of the year. The figure in the UK is similar and there is no trend to suggest that habits in this regard will reduce. Our climate has become the most common social greeting with more and more satire on when we will eventually have a period of warm, dry weather in Clare.

Because of higher humidity and wet conditions, our houses have become home to many sources of fungal and mould attack. There are many adverse and negative health problems arising from such conditions especially the release of fungal spores into the breathable living air space.

Regardless of the climate debate, the reality is that Irish and UK weather conditions have deteriorated with lower temperatures and higher precipitation and humidity. Another sad reality is that the price of energy has increased and continues to do at alarming levels. Predictions in early 2013 suggest that energy costs are likely to double by 2018.

We are all aware of the negative environmental impact of using fossil fuels but look at these more of a global issue rather than an urgent door step problem. Every unit of heat from oil, gas and coal has a rapidly growing carbon cost / tax. In addition, the raw material cost is also increasing due to depleting resources.

If you own an A rated passive house using only renewable energy or fully insulated house we cannot help you. However, if you amongst those without proper insulation then, you are losing money every minute of the day. If you decide to do nothing your bills will more than double within five years.

Spray Foam Insulation is an important step to reducing your heat losses. By investing now you save significantly in the future, increase the capital value of your property and utilise heat for the purpose intended. Spray foam also has great Soundproof Qualities which allows for greater privacy in domestic houses, offices and commercial buildings in Clare.

Spray Foam: Closed-Cell vs. Open-Cell

 

What’s the Difference – Open Cell and Closed Cell Foams

The importance of distinguishing between the two types of spray polyurethane foam cannot be understated. When it comes time to insulate a home or commercial building, you must opt for open-cell foam or closed-cell foam, or a specific combination thereof. Each type of foam distinctly impacts project costs, application methods, and building performance. There are two major factors distinguishing closed-cell and open-cell foams: structure and density.

Cell Structure

The structure of open-cell foam consists of tiny bubbles or cells that aren’t fully encapsulated–they are broken, torn, ripped, etc. Because they’re broken, air fills the open space inside the bubble, which results in a soft, spongy material.

Closed-cell foam differs in that every bubble or cell that makes up the foam is completely encapsulated and packed tightly together. The bubbles aren’t filled with air, but rather a gas that aids foam expansion and insulation properties. This results in an altogether harder, stronger material than open-cell foam.

The blowing agent, which aids in forming the bubbles or cells that make up SPF’s foam structure, is usually water for open-cell and high-R-value chemicals for closed-cell.

Closed-Cell vs. Open-Cell Material Density

Closed-cell foam is roughly four times as dense as open-cell for insulation applications. To ascertain foam density, one cubic foot (cu. ft.) of foam material is weighed. Open-cell tends to be roughly 0.5 lb./cu. ft. in density, whereas closed-cell ranges from 1.7 to 3.0 lb./cu. ft. in density, or even higher for certain applications. (Note: these density figures are rough averages. Every SPF product will differ based on its formulation.)

Insulation Values

R-value is a way to denote a material’s insulating properties, and the higher the number per unit thickness, the better the insulation value. Closed-cell spray foam has an R-value of about 6.0 per inch (R-6), while open-cell SPF comes in at roughly R-3.5. (Note: these R-values are rough averages. Every SPF product will differ based on its formulation.)

Spray Foam Home Insulation

Our Home Insulation Spray Foam offer a huge savings in heating bills and reduces the carbon footprint for any household.

Home insulation The Benefits

Spray foam insulation contains no harmful and irritating micro fibres or organic dust particulates like traditional insulation. The continuous air barrier that spray insulation creates around your home or structure allows you to block harmful outside irritants such as mould, pollen, and other allergens from entering your indoor environment.

Healthy indoor environment

When insulation is sprayed into the floors, walls or ceilings; it quickly expands to 100 times its size to fill in every crack, crevice, and void.

Non-particle based

The seamless air barrier spray insulation creates combined with its non-particle based properties make spray insulation an ideal choice for creating a healthy indoor environment.

Why home insulation?

Recent research shows that poorly insulated homes and workplaces could be losing 25% of their heating through the roof of the property. Roofs insulated with our spray foam insulation will defiantly reduce monthly utility bills. Save money in the long run and will end up paying for itself in the long run.
