Closed Cell Foam Insulation
Rising energy costs are fueling a demand among educated clients for energy-efficient, sustainable, comfortable homes. Every homeowner should know about and ask for closed-cell spray foam insulation for its exceptional performance and energy efficiency. Closed-cell foam insulation:
- Offers a High Insulation R-value
- Reduces the Requirements for Mold Growth
- Provides a Seamless Air Barrier
- Restricts Moisture Transmission
- Adds Structural Strength
- Minimizes Sound Transmission
- Does Not Shrink or Settle
Closed-cell foam insulation forms an air seal that prevents leaks, utilizing the same technology that is used in your refrigerator. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that up to 40% of the energy cost of heating and cooling a building is wasted by uncontrolled air leakage. In cold weather, heated, moist air inside the home escapes through cracks, gaps, and holes in the building shell to join the colder, dryer outside air, causing your furnace to work harder to maintain indoor comfort. In warm weather, hot humid air enters the home through those same pathways, increasing the burden on the air conditioning system. Because drafts are virtually eliminated with closed-cell foam insulation, it is easier to maintain a consistently comfortable temperature without hot and cold spots. Additionally, closed-cell foam insulation also helps prevent uncontrolled outdoor air infiltration and the penetration of dust, pollen, and other allergens.
With energy savings, consistent indoor ambient temperatures, structural stability, and improved indoor air quality, closed-cell foam insulation is a must for every new home.
We also use fiberglass insulation exclusively from Johns Manville, which is the only complete line of pure white, formaldehyde-free fiber glass insulation. So you can reduce concerns over indoor air-quality while still maintaining a comfortable home. The removal of formaldehyde means that there are no binder-related emissions of formaldehyde during the insulation manufacturing process, either to the outdoor environment or to the indoor working areas
