Spray Foam Insulation Advantages

Cost and cleanliness aside, there are clear benefits to using spray foam insulation. As a spray, it can get into and fill tiny nooks and crannies, providing better insulation. This can eliminate drafts and keep the building warmer when it’s cold. No cold air can escape in the summer, either. These advantages can help lower the building’s utility bills. By filling cracks and crevices, foam insulation also helps keep bugs and vermin from getting into the building, which can help save on extermination bills.
Spray foam insulation also adheres well to surfaces, so it can stick to the inside of walls or can be applied to the underside of floors and insulate from underneath. Homes that are insulated with spray foam have a higher resale value than those that use fiberglass insulation or other types of insulation. There are environmental advantages as well; most notably, there aren’t any fiberglass particles floating around in the air. Spray foam insulation also does not cause itching when it is touched, and it inhibits mold growth because it does not adsorb water.

There are several reasons to use spray foam. Quick installation, best energy savings, environmental friendliness, health, and durability are primary benefits. Spray foam insulation systems add sustainability, durability, energy efficiency and improved occupant comfort to residential construction projects. Spray foam PAYS FOR ITSELF with minimal environmental impact. Profoam systems are spray-applied and offer design flexibility, which make them a “perfect fit” for any residential construction project.

The Many Benefits Of Spray Foam

  • Spray foams cut monthly air conditioning/heating costs up to 60%
  • Foams improve indoor air quality (reducing allergy & asthma attacks)
  • Spray foams help homes & businesses become much quieter
  • Foam insulation will not support or spread flame
  • Spray foam kills mold on contact and reduces future mold growth
  • Foam insulation is not a food source for mold, roaches, or termites
  • Foam insulation is not damaged by water or floods
  • Spray foam does not settle or pack down over time
  • Foam insulation will not sag or split as it ages
  • Spray foam does not allow air loss or air infiltration into your home

Keeping the heat in and the cold out

Applying our residential and commercial polyurethane foam insulation has many benefits and is the preferred way to insulate against winter cold and summer heat. Our foam insulation can save up to 60% each year in heating and cooling costs and can pay for itself in just a few years.

Spray foam is the premium choice for residential and commercial insulation applications. The US has strict guidelines and testing to ensure that all spray foam products meet material and application UL specifications.

There is nothing better than spray foam to protect your home and save money.

Cathedral Ceilings

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for cathedral ceiling insulation. It does not allow air movement and causes moisture and mold. The full cavity can be used eliminating the need for both ridge vent and soffit vents. Ceilings insulated to R-38 are recommended in New York either an OPEN CELL or CLOSED CELL foam.
Fiberglass insulation in a 8” thick cavity would yield a stated R-25 but the actual installed r-value would be closer to an R-18 (30% LOSS). Fiberglass loses 11% of it’s R-value when installed “perfectly” in a lab with access to both sides to verify the insulation is square, in contact with all six sides of the cavity, and without compression.In real life that number drops to a 28% loss. Add in air flow and that number drops to nearly a 50% loss by using fiberglass.

Waterproofing

Waterproofing an old stone foundation from the exterior with “Closed Cell” spray polyurethane foam provides a water tight seal from the outside.
Closed cell spray polyurethane foam provides more than 3x the waterproofing and 4x the impressive strength of Extruded Polystyrene (EPS) which are the pink boards sold at Home Depot, Menards, Lowes, etc. These pink boards allow water to permeate through them reducing their thermal efficiency and letting water through. Closed Cell when applied to a crawlspace or basement wall sprayed seamless so no water is able to penetrate. Sought is this important? Like clothing when wet, it does not insulate nearly as well. In applications below grade, there is nothing but moisture and ground water saturated in the soil. Closed cell spray polyurethane is the only logical answer for a seamless waterproof insulation.

Under Slab

Spray Foam under abasement slab provides both a thermal an vapor barrier from the cold moist ground. That means warmer feet all year round while in the basement.

Attics

The roof/ceiing of a typical building accounts for 30% of heating loss in the winter and solar gain in the hot summer. Many homes have duct work in the attic space which greatly diminishes their efficiency through air leakage and conduction to the unconditioned space.
By adding spray foam insulation in the attic under the roof line, you create a conditioned space in the attic. This spray foam insulated attic stays within +/- 5° of the 2nd floor temperature all year round causing less less load on the HVAC system and lowering utility bills overall.

Basement

Are you tired of your basement smelling musty? Encapsulate it with “Closed Cell” Spray Polyurethane Foam and get rid of the damp, moldy, musty smells.

Foam Insulation VS Fiberglass

For the past 5 decades it didn’t matter where you bought fiberglass of cellulose it was all the same quality and same R-Values. Heck, many homeowners just went down to Home Depot or Lowes, grabbed a truck load and insulated their homes themselves. Again, there were no real decisions to evaluate when it came to insulating your home or business.
We;ve learned in the foam industry that we can’t trust R-Values either. Because the old out dated thermal resistance tests are inaccurate. They aren’t even close to being correct. Those old R-Value tests only measure one type of heat – Conduction Heat. What we use in our foam industry are Performance Value Tests. These tests measure all 3 types of heats: conduction heat, convection heat, and radiant heat from the Sun. These performance tests have proved that the real thermal resistance value (R-value) of standard insulation is very inaccurate. As much as a 60% decrease in their true R-values.

Retrofit Injection Foam Insulation for Existing Homes

Seal Every Crack and Crevice in Existing Walls

Retrofit injection is a slow rising, open-cell foam insulation product used for insulating existing walls, ceilings, and floor components. Homeowners benefit from this specifically designed chemical formulation injected through a series of holes drilled in walls and ceiling surfaces, without causing damage to the surface anchoring system.

Selection PIP is injected as a liquid which flows through the cavity and slowly expands in place; there it can be a very effective option for existing wall applications.

The ability to seal every crack and crevice makes Selection PIP the product of choice for homeowners who chose high-performance wall insulation with having to remove interior or exterior surfaces.
