Considering spray foam insulation? Excellent!
There are numerous resources available discussing spray foam insulation that can be overwhelming and sometimes contradictory. The information we have provided at Premium Spray is designed to bring into focus the key advantages for using spray polyurethane foam as your home insulation solution.
Be sure to visit our Resource Center. We have assembled many of the most common FAQ’s and third party documentation available today.
When evaluating the use of spray foam as an insulation solution – some of the most important items to consider are:
Spray Foam Insulation R-Value
Typical R-value tests will measure only one component of the heat transfer process – Conduction (transfer of heat by direct contact). R-value alone does not properly reflect the insulating power of spray foam. When you combine the high R-value per inch of Foamsulate along with it’s ability to stop air infiltration you can achieve a thermal envelope that is superior to more traditional forms of insulation.
Control the Air
To create an energy efficient structure you need to control the air movement within. A significant amount of the air inside a structure infiltrates through the walls, ceilings and floors. A structure that leaks is not energy efficient. Adding an advanced insulation system like Foamsulate will help you control the air leakage. When properly installed by a trained contractor Foamsulate quickly expands to fill the cracks, crevices, gaps and voids that exist in every structure. In addition Foamsulate will conform to the curves, irregular surfaces and spaces to form a superior thermal envelope around your entire structure.
Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs
What is the major reason you invest in a superior insulation system like Foamsulate? TO REDUCE HEATING AND COOLING COSTS! Now that the air leakage has been controlled along with the highly effective R-value of Foamsulate you can expect long term savings of 40% or more on your heating and cooling costs.
Types of spray foam used for insulation:
Open Cell Spray Foam Insulation
Foamsulate™ 50 is our 0.5 LB density open cell spray foam designed to provide significant control of air infiltration along with a high R-value per inch.
Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation
Our 2.0 LB density closed spray foam, Foamsulate™ 210, is designed for use where insulation systems require superior air barrier characteristics along with the ability to minimize moisture infiltration.
