Spray foam insulation offers the best insulating properties of all insulation materials. The product is a perfect fit to any cavity design, won't sag, doesn't leave voids or gaps and doesn't break down over time. Spray foam can offer strength to any structure, it can help eliminate air infiltration into a home or building. By eliminating the air infiltration it also cuts the dust and pollen that enters a building or home therefore making a more healthy and comfortable home or building.
Spray foam insulation also reduces the capacity needs, maintenance and wear on heating and cooling units in a home or building. Also by adding spray foam insulation to present heating and cooling systems it can increase the efficiency and comfort levels in a home or building.
Stops Air and Moisture Infiltration
Department of Energy studies have shown that upwards of 40% of a building's total energy loss is due to air infiltration. Spray foam is applied to buildings forming a perfect fit to any design. With this perfect fit any voids, gaps or areas of infiltration are eliminated.
Along with the elimination of air infiltration, moisture infiltration is also eliminated. Almost 90% of moisture moving into or out of a building is due to air movement, therefore eliminating one helps the other. By doing this the potential of mold and mildew in the building materials is also eliminated.
Saves on Energy Costs
With the application of spray foam insulation you will be saving on energy costs by increasing your energy efficiency. With the use of spray foam insulation you are sealing the entire building envelope which will decrease and eliminate heat loss due to air movement.
Spray foam insulation can offer savings of between 30% to 50% of your monthly energy bills by providing a more air tight and sealed building envelope. Also by increasing the efficiency of the building envelope your heating and cooling equipments longevity is increased by not having unnecessary stress or strain on the systems.
Permanent and Won't Sag
One of the biggest problems with traditional insulation methods such as batt or blown insulation is that they tend to sag or fall over time, leaving voids and gaps in the building envelope.
Since foam insulation is mixed onsite, applied directly and adheres to the wall or frame, foam insulation is a perfect fit everytime. No voids, no gaps, therefore a better air seal and insulation overall.
Another benefit with the use of spray foam insulation is that architects and builders are not limited to traditional designs in order to accommodate traditional insulation. This allows them to be more creative or unique in their design.
The only limitation is your imagination. From residential to commercial to industrial construction and design, closed-cell spray foam is quickly becoming the industry standard, especially for hard to insulate areas. It can be applied to rim joists, sills, walls, catherdral ceilings, cantilevers, domes, turrets, attics, quonsets, pools, roofs, basement floors, foundation walls, and underground footings. As a spray-applied foam, Polar foam offers tenacious adhesion to almost any substrate and almost any shape.
Warm N Cozy Offers Spray foam services in the following foams...
Medium Density 2lb closed cell Foam
Often reffered to as "2 pound foam", it is a closed cell, non-porous spray foam insulation. It resists moisture penetration, therby making it particularily suitable for all applications. Medium density spray foam insulation is harder, more rigid and maintains the higher R - value than low density spray foam insulation. The R - value of medium density spray foam insulation is greater than 6 per inch.
Polar Foam soya 7300 is an environmentally responsible medium-density spray foam insulation that is sprayed on as a liquid and expands into a foam filling every single nook, cranny, and gap to create a perfect continuous air-tight seal. It is a thermal insulation, air barrier, and vapor barrier all in one and it actually exceeds the requirements for the National Building Code of Canada. It has an RValue of 6 per inch which is far superior to traditional insulation, and, more importantly, its closed-cell structure stops convection (aka airflow) currents.
