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 Limerick.

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 among 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 Limerick.

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.)

4 Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

Some of the Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation

If your concerned about healthy air can breathe a little easier in buildings insulated with the spray products offered by Spray Foam Installers in Kerry, Cork and Limerick. Dangers associated with certain forms of insulation, such as long-term emissions.

Our products can actually help to improve indoor air quality. People with allergies, asthma and certain chemical sensitivities have often found that, in buildings with Spray foam Insulation, dangers of respiratory distress caused by natural airborne irritants are reduced significantly.

Pollutants and airborne allergens can penetrate even the smallest gaps in other forms of insulation. Airborne moisture can also infiltrate traditional insulation, sometimes leading to mold, which releases spores and potentially toxic substances called mycotoxins. Thanks to the superior air seal created by Spray foam, dangers of inhaling these toxins and irritants are greatly reduced.

For all these reasons, Spray foam is highly recommended for spaces occupied by people with allergies, asthma and other particular respiratory issues. In fact, Spray foam was used to improve indoor air quality as part of the American Lung Association’s “Health House” program.

More Safety Benefits of Spray foam Insulation.

Electrical Wiring
Independent third-party testing confirms that electrical wiring is not affected by Spray foam. Dangers of overheating were not found to be a concern during testing.

Prevention is better than cure.

As people become educated about insulation, more and more are discovering both building performance and peace of mind. Problems that used to be common, or even seem inevitable, can now be permanently avoided.

Prevents Energy Loss

Spray foam doesn’t just insulate, it creates a superior air barrier compared to traditional insulation like fiberglass. When it’s sprayed into the wall cavity, it expands to fill the space, regardless of the size or shape. That includes cracks and crevices that other insulation’s couldn’t easily fill. It adheres to every surface it touches, creating a sealed environment. Thanks to the science of Spray foam, problems like drafts can be a thing of the past, and energy bills can be reduced by up to 50%.

Helps Prevent Mold

Airtight levels achieved, our spray foam insulation helps block airborne moisture from infiltrating the wall cavity. In cases of roof or plumbing leaks, after the leak has been fixed, Spray foam’s light-density insulation will dry, reducing the potential for mold growth. Once dried, it continues to operate at peak performance levels. This is a significant and unique benefit offered by Spray foam; problems related to moisture management are common among other types of insulation.

Helps Prevent Air Quality Issues

By helping to reduce the risk of mold, Spray foam also helps prevent the spores and toxins that get released into the air. In addition, airborne pollutants and allergens that can pass through the gaps left by other forms of insulation are much less of a threat as a result of the air-sealing capabilities of Spray foam. Problems associated with asthma and allergies can therefore often be alleviated by using Spray foam.

Certified installation contractors in Kerry, Cork and Limerick problems solved experts

Energy efficiency is only one of the many benefits offered by Spray foam insulation. Problems with allergies? Lack of privacy? You may be surprised how much Spray foam could help.

Allergies & Asthma Relief in Ireland

Because it dramatically reduces air filtration, spray foam helps prevent airborne allergens and pollutants from entering the building.

In addition, because of its moisture management benefits, Spray foam also helps protect against the formation of mold. That means that with Spray foam insulation, problems related to mold spores or other toxins released by mold are also reduced.

Noise Reduction

Spray foam seals against the transfer of air and accompanying moisture, it also helps reduce the transfer of noise. Thanks to the sound hardening qualities, problems and annoyances related to “thin walls” can be easily turned into better privacy.

 

Selecting the Right Insulation Type

Your contractor will advise on the best type of spray foam insulation to use for your property – open cell or closed cell. Different insulation types may be suitable in different applications.

Mold Problems – How to avoid them

 

Reduce the Risk of Mold from Humid Air and Condensation

Spray foams act as air barriers. If you live in a humid climate, or have rooms with high humidity, the moisture in the air may spread through the building and condensate. This water can then lead to mold. When you protect against the movement of moist air using the air barrier formed by Spray foam, mold and condensation risks are reduced.

Allergies & Asthma Relief with Spray foam – Mold, Allergens and Pollutants Blocked

Some allergies and asthma may be triggered by mold, so using Spray foam materials can help you have a healthy home for the above reasons. Also, because it dramatically reduces air filtration, Spray foam also helps prevent airborne allergens and pollutants from entering the building.

Spray Foam Insulation installers in Kerry, Cork and Limerick

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 the boards, or through holes drilled in the boards or drywall into the wall cavity of a finished wall.

Advantages of Spray Foam Installations

  • Blocks airflow by expanding and sealing off leaks, gaps and penetrations. (This can also keep out bugs or other vermin)
  • Can serve as a semi-permeable vapor barrier with a better permeability rating than plastic sheeting vapor barriers and consequently reduce the buildup of moisture, which can cause mold growth.
  • Can fill wall cavities in finished walls without tearing the walls apart (as required with batts).
  • Works well in tight spaces (like loose-fill, but superior).
  • Provides acoustical insulation (like loose-fill, but superior).
  • Expands while curing, filling bypasses, and providing excellent resistance to air infiltration (unlike batts and blankets, which can leave bypasses and air pockets, and superior to some types of loose-fill. Wet-spray cellulose is comparable.).
  • Increases structural stability (unlike loose-fill, similar to wet-spray cellulose).
  • Can be applied in small quantities.
