Benefits of 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
  • Is permanent and will not sag
  • Keeps out dust and pollen
  • Reduces capacity requirements, maintenance, and wear of HVAC equipment

SPF Saves Money and Pays for Itself

SPF home insulation reduces energy costs and lowers utility bills.

U.S.A. Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of energy is lost as a result of air infiltration – air that enters your home through walls, sockets, windows and doorways. SPF seals the entire building envelope to prevent air and moisture infiltration.

SPF also eliminates the need for expensive building wrap or additional vapor protection during construction.

High R-Value

Sprayed polyurethane foam has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1-inch thickness or higher, depending on particular formulation and application, providing more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation. SPF systems are used to insulate and protect residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

SPF offers monthly energy and utility savings of 30% or more, compared to other roofing and insulation systems. The cost of an SPF roof or insulation system can often be recovered in energy savings in under 5 years.

Prevents Air, Moisture and Gas Infiltration

Up to 40% of the total energy loss of a building is caused by air infiltration. Because traditional fiberglass insulation is only stapled or placed into wall cavities, it does not seal the stud and wall cavities from end to end or from top to bottom. Air infiltration can pass through gaps, making it much less efficient than SPF.

SPF both adheres and forms to walls and floors, creating a tight seal and an insulating barrier that stops air leakage. It boasts the highest R-value per inch of all commercial materials – upwards of R-7.0, compared to Fiberglass at R-3.5 – which makes a home more comfortable and less expensive to heat in winter, and keeps it cool in summer.

Since SPF acts as an air barrier, it helps reduce moisture infiltration, which is a source for growth of dangerous mold and mildew that can cause severe health problems to occupants. Moisture infiltration can cause structural damage to a building. Protect your family and save money with SPF home insulation systems.

Reduces Moisture and Mold

Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. These spores continually circulate through indoor and outdoor air. When mold spores land on a damp spot indoors, they begin growing, digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. Molds can grow on wood, paper, carpet and food. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth occurs, especially if it’s undiscovered or not addressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores indoors. The only way to control its growth is to control moisture. SPF insulation is the answer.

Enhances Building Stability

Since SPF is seamless and monolithic, foam sprayed into the walls enhances overall building stability and reduces rack and sheer.

Deadens Sound and Noise

SPF reduces airborne sound, making a home acoustically tighter with more privacy between rooms.
