Spray Foam Insulation Benefits

There is no better home insulating material that can seal your home from air and moisture intrusion, save on costly bills and protect your family’s health from dangerous mold, airborne pollutants, and allergens than Spray Foam insulation.Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

  • Stops air and moisture infiltration
  • Makes your home more comfortable
  • Saves on energy costs
  • Adds strength to the building structure
  • It is permanent and will not sag
  • Keeps dust and pollen out
  • Reduces capacity requirements, maintenance and
    wear of HVAC equipment
Spray Foam Insulation Redefines Traditonal Construction Methods and Benefits Modern Building Sciences and Energy Efficient Green Building Initiatives
Read all about how spray foam used in the Building Envelope outperforms fiberglass insulation, becomes a superior air barrier, and defies traditional, and perhaps, outdated building practices of attic and crawl space ventilation.
High R-Value
Sprayed polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. Spray Foam Insulation systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

Prevents Air, Moisture and Gas Infiltration
Studies have shown that as much as 40% of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled, or placed into the wall cavities and does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end, or top to bottom. Air infiltration can pass through these gaps, making it far less efficient than Spray Foam Insulation. Spray Foam Insulation not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops this air leakage. Spray Foam Insulation also boasts the highest R-value per inch than any other commercial material, (upwards of R-7.0, compared with Fiberglass at R-3.5) making your home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cool in the summer.

Since Spray Foam Insulation acts as an air barrier, it also helps to reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source of dangerous mold and mildew growth in the home, and can cause severe health problems to its occupants. So save your family and save money at the same time with Spray Foam Insulation home insulation systems. Moisture infiltration can also cause structural damage to your home or building.

Prevents Moisture and Mold 
Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture. Spray Foam Insulation insulation is the key.

Enhances Overall Building Stability
Since Spray Foam Insulation is seamless and monolithic, foam sprayed into the walls enhances overall building stability and reduces “rack and sheer.”

Reduces Sound Travel and Noise
Spray Foam also reduces airborne sound making the home acoustically tighter and more private from room to room.

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.
