The Many Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation (SPF)
- Stops air and moisture leakage
- Reduces drafts and makes your home more comfortable
- Saves up to 50% energy costs and monthly utility bills
- Closed-cell spray foam 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
- Open-cell spray foam can significantly reduce noise
Sprayed closed cell polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 to 7.0 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. SPF systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial
Monthly energy and utility savings of 50% or greater have been reported by consumers.
Prevents Air, Moisture & 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. SPF not only adheres to, but forms to the walls and floors to create a tight seal and insulating barrier that stops this air leakage. SPF 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 SPF home insulation systems.
