The Benefits: Polyurethane Spray Foam Insulation
- It Reduces Energy Consumption. Up to 40% of a buildings heat is lost due to a poor building envelope. Spray foam insulation seals tighter to surfaces like wood, doors, concrete and vents; and also seals in difficult little nooks.
- It Is Air Tight. Spray foam insulation offers a very low air permeability, and provides a sealed application process, insuring a much tighter building envelope.
- It Offers Vapor Permeance. Spray foam insulation (closed-cell, 2lb) is shown to provide sufficient vapor diffusion (@ 2″) to adhere to the standards set out in the National Building Code of Canada. This means that spray foam insulation is capable of replacing both fiberglass insulation and the polyethylene vapor barrier.
- It Improves Air Quality. With the building envelope sealed tighter, less pollution and water can leak into the building. This means that air is filtered through intake / outtake points; and walls are less susceptible to mold and mildew growth.
- It Offers Thermal Effectiveness, Quality Assurance, Noise Reduction & Is Durable
- In addition, it is environmentally friendly.
