Spray Foam Insulation
Why is now the right time to consider spray foam insulation?
The Best Spray Foam Insulation With Highest R-Value You Can Find!
There are multiple types of insulations that can be used to keep our homes warm, cozy, and cool. In the old days, our ancestors would use sawdusts or straws to keep their homes warm and to slow down heat loss. Today, we rely on fiberglass batts, cellulose, and other insulations that usually break easily and require heavy maintenance. If you’re looking for a unique, high quality insulation that helps you save money and energy for a long-term cause, then a spray foam is what you need.
With all it’s pros and energy-saving benefits, Thermal Guard Foam can help you install the proper spray foam your house needs! We offer professional consultations and we ensure that you get the best quality spray foam with the highest R-value(a term given to thermal resistance to heat flow). Thermal Guard Foam is here to make sure that you are living your best life in the comfort of your homes while spending less on your energy resources.
What is Spray Foam Insulation?
Spray foam is a combination of two chemicals: isocyanate and polyol resin. When these two chemicals are combined and sprayed, its foam expands up to 30-60 times its liquid volume. Since the 1940’s, spray foam has been used for different applications such as shoe soles, cushions, and aircrafts. Its great benefits are now being used to make our homes comfortable and energy efficient.
Spray foam insulation is a versatile product with an R-value of 3.5 – 6.5 that can be used to insulate roofs, lofts, walls, and floors. It is an effective insulator that stops air leakage and retains warmth, therefore reducing energy consumption. Spray foam insulation controls heat transfer which keeps your house warm and cozy during winter, and it also affects the air flow which keeps your house cool and fresh during summer.
Why Should I Get Spray Foam Insulation?
You may have heard that spray foam insulation is more expensive than traditional insulators. However, you must also take into consideration that this is a great long term investment for your home. Compared to traditional insulators, spray foam not only helps you save more money on electricity bills, but also helps you build a better environment for your family.
Spray foam has the following benefits and advantages that will surely make you interested in getting one:
- Helps you save money on cooling and heating systems.
- Increases the sturdiness of the house structure.
- Fills cracks gaps and crevices
- Reduces noise significantly.
- Prevents pests, insects, and parasites from entering your home.
- Prevents the formation of mold and fungus.
- Never loses shape and lasts longer than traditional insulators.
- Enhances process performance
- Prevents moisture condensation
Once your insulation is installed, you can enjoy all these benefits. We, at Thermal Guard Foam, can help you get a comfortable and energy-efficient home in no time!
What is the Best Spray Foam Insulation for My Home?
There are two types of spray foam insulation: Open-cell insulation and closed-cell insulation. Before choosing the spray foam you want to install in your house, you must know your house’s current condition. Remember that the higher the R-value, the more effective and efficient their insulation properties are. Usually, both are made from the same material, but they have different properties when they set.
Closed Cell Spray Foam is best if your house or property is not in its best shape or condition. It is a rigid, medium-density insulating material with an R-value of 6.5. This type of spray foam insulation serves as a moisture and air barrier and it can be used in both exterior and internal applications. FEMA has recognized closed-cell spray foam as a flood-resistant material as it rejects large flows of water from entering the home. So, if you’re living in a flood prone area, closed-cell spray foam is definitely a great choice.
Open-Cell Spray Foam is best if you want to have a quieter and a more peaceful home. It is a less dense spray foam – dense enough to be compressed using your hand, that can be used for interior applications and reduces noise significantly. Unlike closed-cell spray foam insulation, it has an R-value of 3.5 and it can’t be used as structural support. Open-cell spray foam insulation allows moisture to enter, but is not considered as “mold food”.
