Why insulate with foam?

It's a good question. And in these days of soaring energy costs and uncertain supplies, there is an obvious answer. We believe you should harness the insulating power of foam insulation for use in your home. Not only is it a wise decision, but it is also practical to accomplish with a 21st Century state-of-the-art sprayed foam insulation called Spray Foam Insulation.

Stopping Air Infiltration.

This is an extremely important question. Let's say, for example, that you put in the sodas and the ice in the foam picnic chest above, but didn't put the lid down tight. The ice would only last a few hours at best, and your drinks would probably be lukewarm (or hot) by mid-day on Saturday. What happened? The R-value didn't changeā€¦it's still an R-2! So why did the ice melt? Because you allowed air to leak into the picnic chest.

Closed cell vs. open cell

This may be one of the most important pages on the website if your interest is in spray foam insulation. When it comes time to actually put the foam product in your home or commercial building structure, you must identify whether you will use .05 lb./cu. ft., open cell foam, or 2.0 lb./cu. ft. closed cell foam. This makes a big difference in cost, application methods, and performance.

Preventing Dangerous Mold & Respiratory Problems

Recent reports of mold remediation projects shutting down schools or office buildings have raised awareness regarding the potential hazards of interior mold contamination. While scientists still have much to learn regarding the danger molds may present, some basic knowledge about interior mold prevention and remediation has been established. There are also an increasing number of resources available for additional information on the topic.

It's All About Air Tightness

One of the major factors in achieving top energy efficiency is airtightness. "Consider an airplane," says Richard Rue CEO of Energy Wise Structures. "When flying at 35,000 feet, the plane is exposed to outside air temperatures of -50 F, with wind chills as low as -150 F. The shell of a plane is typically just 2 inches thick, but passengers don't freeze because its airtight. Once a structure is airtight, it takes very little energy to keep it at a certain temperature.

SprayFoam in the Building Envelope

The building envelope is a total system of construction materials and design components that control the temperature, movement of air, and moisture both into and out of the building. A building's insulation, air barrier and vapor barrier all need to work together to achieve a more stable, comfortable and healthier indoor environment. Many new materials and design practices are being implemeted to extend the sustainable service life of buildings and homes.

Energy Efficient Homes Are More Valuable

Builders of energy-efficient homes are wise to promote and market the value of energy efficiency features to consumers, because, as energy costs climb, new home buyers are increasingly looking for houses with superior energy efficiency. These homes typically offer significant payback in lower utility costs, greater comfort for homeowners, less maintenance and increased resale value down the road.
