Outside heat or cold can transfer from an exterior wall to an interior wall through six different methods of transference. Spray foam insulation blocks all six and thereby helps to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature:
R-Value is NOT the answer alone! R-value, the traditional measure of an insulation's effectiveness, measures only ONE of these six mechanisms. Spray polyurethane foam effectively prevents or blocks all six heat transfer methods.
Spray Foam Eliminates Air Leaks!
Air leakage can contribute to problems with moisture, noise, dust, pollutants, insects, and rodents.
Small voids of 1-2% at the end of fiberglass batt insulation can result in a 25-40% reduction of R-value due to air leakage. Air leakage can account for 30% of a home's annual heating and cooling costs. Spray polyurethane foam seals the building envelope to create an optimal energy-efficient environment.
Spray Foam Maintains indoor air quality by virtually eliminating mold and fungus!
The Building Science Corporation believes that insulation products capable of achieving green building standards need to control moisture, air movement and temperature in one material. SPF is the ONLY product in the industry that can control all three.
