DID YOU KNOW?
Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes.
Up to 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air leaks. Gaps, holes and other leaks—which can all be prevented—can make energy bills unnecessarily high and let valuable resources go to waste. Spray Foam fills gaps, thus preventing air leaks.
Spray foam insulation can help reduce the workload on your HVAC system thanks to its high R-value and effectiveness. With spray foam, HVAC sizing can be reduced as much as 35% without the loss of efficiency and comfort.
SPRAY FOAM ADVANTAGE
SPRAY FOAM contributes significantly to moisture management by not allowing the moisture to enter the space. Spray foam insulation minimizes moisture-related problems caused by random air leakage because it expands to fill all the cracks and crevices where airborne moisture would otherwise enter.
SPRAY FOAM acts as both insulation and an effective air barrier that seals out outdoor pollutants. Through the elimination of air leakage, spray foam insulation prevents outdoor pollutants and allergens from infiltrating the building.
Spray foam insulation provides a higher R-Value, increasing energy efficiency to reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 50 percent. Remember, up to 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air leaks. Spray Foam fills cracks and crevices reducing the loss of air.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has shown walls installed with closed-cell spray foam have a racking strength up to 300% greater than walls without it. With the installation of spray foam, an exterior wall becomes more rigid and thereby more resistant to compression and shearing.
