Do you know that almost 40% of the energy spent in homes for cooling and heating is wasted due to air infiltration?
The traditional materials used for insulation such as fiberglass and cellulose cannot prevent the flow of air through gaps. Gaps are created as these material are either stapled or simple placed in the wall cavities and do not create an air seal.

TRADITIONAL INSULATION CANNOT PREVENT FLOW OF MOISTURE
Consequently, the heating and cooling system needs to spend more energy to keep the temperature at comfortable levels inside the home in winter and summer months.
Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) is the best insulating material available today. It can bring down the utility bills, save your home from moisture and air intrusion, strengthen your home and keep airborne pollutants, allergens and mold away from your home.
Spray Foam Insulation Highlights
It creates air seal that prevents air and moisture leakage.
It makes your Austin home more comfortable by reducing air draft.
It offers huge savings on your monthly utility bills.
It keeps allergens and mold out.
Open cell SPF creates highly effective noise barrier.
It does not sag with time.
Closed cell SPF adds strength to the structure.
OTHER AWESOME BENEFITS OF SPRAY FOAM INSULATON
Close cell spray foam insulation has R-value of 6.0 per inch thickness though it can also go to 7.0 depending on particular formulation as well as application. On the other hand, fiberglass has R-value of 3.0.
R-value refers to heat flow resistance. In simple terms, higher number means more insulating power.
Lower Utility Bills
It is estimated that 30 to 40% of total energy loss in a building is due to air infiltration. Since spray foam insulation covers the stud and wall cavities from end to end, there are no air gaps and it creates a perfect air seals which means there is no air leakage. You can expect significant savings on your utility bills with spray foam insulation.
Prevents Moisture Infiltration
Mold spores can enter a home from outside air that flows into your home through the air gaps. When these mold spores settle on moist spots inside, they start growing. These can grow on food, carpet, paper as well as wood.
Spray form prevents moisture in the air from entering your home and helps in maintaining a healthy indoor environment.
Adds to Building Strength
Closed cell SPF has a density of 1.7 to 3.0 pounds per cubic feet and this density can go higher depending on the formulation. Due to its high density, it also adds to the structural strength of your home when installed in the correct manner.
It does not degrade, settle, sag or shrink with time. It is also an insect and fire resistant.
Creates Effective Noise Barrier
Open cell SPF is highly effective in reducing ambient noise and creating a low noise living environment inside your home.
Whether you are renovating your home or building a new home, spray foam insulation can be conveniently installed and it takes much less time to install as compared to fiberglass or other common insulation materials.
