What exactly is ‘Spray Foam Insulation’?
As we previously mentioned, Spray Foam Insulation is a pretty new innovation. Eco Insulation of Sudbury Ontario, make use of a special type of polyurethane, or as it’s otherwise referred to, ‘PU Foam Insulation. This type of insulation is applied by spray foam companies like Eco Insulation by using two different components pulled through into a mixing chamber and applied via a special nozzle. Once the components are mixed and ejected from the hose, on to the area to be insulated, they expand up to twenty times their original volume. This is why Spray Foam makes such an excellent choice – spray it into a small gap, and it will completely fill the void. It adheres instantly to the surface upon which it is sprayed, so when it’s done properly, there is very little (if any) waste, making it extremely efficient. Once the product is dried, or cured as we say in the trade, it becomes non-toxic, and unlike fiberglass based products, there are no itchy or irritating particles in the area.
Why should I choose Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray Foam Insulation in Sudbury Ontario, when applied by professionals like Eco Insulation, can bring a whole host of benefits to your home or place of business, especially when compared to more traditional insulation products like batt insulation, or cellulose fibre. Whilst there is nothing wrong with the older technology, we are strong believers in the effectiveness of Spray Foam Insulation products. When you choose Spray Foam, you’ll be getting a higher R-Value. If you’re not familiar with the concept of R-Value, it is a measure of an insulation’s effectiveness measured against a given thickness of material; the higher the number, the better. Your geographical location has a recommended range of R Values that a building should be insulated to, for example, in Sudbury Ontario, an R-Value between R 38 and R 60 is ideal. So, to help you better visualize R-Value, Eco insulation’s spray foam insulation has an R-Value of 6 per inch of material; compare this to fibreglass sheets, which have an R-Value of around 2 per inch of material. So, if you choose fiberglass sheets, you’re going to need 3 times the thickness of Spray Foam insulation to gain the same R-Value.
Is Spray Foam Insulation Cheap?
The short answer is no. But you really need to look at it in terms of being a long term investment! You’ll reap so many benefits from properly applied spray foam insulation – which over time add up to real ROI, or return on investment. Some examples of the things you’ll benefit from are:
- Reduced need for replacement; in fact, you may never need to replace spray foam insulation on your home if it’s properly installed! Expected life is in fact 80 plus years – compared with 10 to 25 years on other types of insulation, Spray Foam is the clear winner
- Your home will literally be stronger; that’s right, stronger! Properly applied closed cell spray foam insulation is so dense that it increases roof racking strength by up to 250%, a truly incredible statistic
- Closed cell PU spray foam insulation is completely waterproof, so, in the event of a leak you won’t have the added expense of replacing your insulation too, something that cellulose and fibreglass insulations can’t boast
- Allergy relief; properly applied spray foam insulation creates an additional barrier against irritants and allergens such as pollen from entering your home
- You’ll even benefit from a quieter home; spray foam is so effective as an insulator, it even insulates against ambient noise from outside.
Can’t I just apply spray foam myself?
As professional spray foam contractors in Sudbury Ontario, we’d have say no to this one. The application of spray foam insulation may look simple, but it’s a task that requires training and skilled labor to accomplish properly. We already mentioned that spray foam isn’t exactly the cheapest product on the market, we also mentioned that it adheres immediately to any surface on which it’s sprayed, you see where we’re going with this? You mis-spray, and you’re left with a huge mess! PU Spray foam, while still wet, can produce toxic vapors (don’t worry, once cured it’s completely inert!), so, without the proper personal protective equipment, you could be putting your health at risk. On top of all this, even if you had the right equipment, both protective and tools, and you knew what you were doing, unless you’re licensed and have photo ID from your organizations quality assurance program, the Canadian National building code says you can’t apply spray foam yourself. You can rest assured, that when you choose Eco Insulation of Sudbury Ontario, you’ll always get trained, certified and licensed spray foam insulation contractors.
