Spray Foam Insulation

ENERGY SAVINGS

The number one reason people invest in spray foam insulation is to save money on heating and cooling. The US Department of Energy states that 40% of the energy in a home can be saved by sealing air infiltration. With energy costs skyrocketing, this makes it more and more important to plug the holes in your pocket. SFDR Eco+ products provide a tight air seal and it retains the conditioned air that you set on your thermostat.

So, your thermostat no longer says 70 in the winter as you shiver with drafts and wear long johns because actually it's 55 degrees in your home. The savings will be even greater if natural gas, propane, heating oil, and electricity costs continue to increase as predicted. Furthermore, the extra cost of SPF insulation can often be recovered in less than 5 years through energy savings alone.

AIR QUALITY, HEALTH & ECO-FRIENDLY

SPF provides an airtight seal, creating a more comfortable home. If your home is breathing as most do, you're letting in outside air, moisture, and dust. This can lead to allergies or the very least prevents your home from providing a nice retreat from allergies outside. Mold and mildew posses a significant health risk and can force people to move out of the homes during expensive remediation while still paying their mortgage. Thankfully, insulating your home with the same SPF air barrier that saves you money, also makes the home healthier and more comfortable for you and your family to live in. SFDR eco-friendly ECO+ products use zero ozone-depleting blowing agents that contain zero HFAs, HCFCs, or HFCs along with zero formaldehyde, so there are no harmful emissions while minimizing carbon emissions and footprint.

HIGHER R-VALUES & BARRIERS

An ideal insulation system provides resistance to heat flow (R-Value), controls air movement, and limits moisture migration. Spray foam insulation is an air and vapor barrier, and a high R-value insulator, all in one. SPF has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1-inch thickness (SFDR ECO+ closed-cell SPF product has an R-value of 6.6 per 1-inch thickness), enabling SPF to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of insulation. Mold destroys a home's value and can be very expensive to remediate. A properly sealed and insulated home resists mold because moist air doesn't infiltrate. Closed-cell foam doesn't allow moisture to be trapped within it or pass through it, so it provides the best guard against mold and mildew. Most insulation doesn't offer a barrier to insects or rodents. The fact is insects and rodents want inside your home for a very good reason, survival. Having dense, rigid closed-cell SPF provides a solid barrier to entry that makes entry harder than its worth. They'll look for an easier port of entry, perhaps the home next door.

INCREASED RESALE VALUE

The days of uneducated homebuyers purchasing energy-inefficient homes are coming to a close very quickly. Not only will people pay more for an energy-efficient home, but they also want to pay more. That means your dollar saving home is more attractive to buyers, and the competition the buyers will create for your home will lead to a higher sales price. 2008 research shows that 80% of Americans are willing to pay more for a green home. That means SFDR Eco+ energy-efficient SPF products not only save you money month after month, it also puts more money in your pocket when it comes time to sell. That is like owning a stock that puts dividends in your pocket each month while increasing your overall value. When your energy costs are lower, you don't feel drafts, and your void of mold, moisture, and pests, you're just going to be more comfortable. It's easy to take for granted however, peace of mind is truly a wonderful thing and also carries a price tag. Now that's a real value-add!

INCREASED RESALE VALUE

One of the many advantages of spray foam insulation is its incredible diversity. Whether you are building a new home, commercial building, barn, or other structure both open and closed cell spray foam works perfectly. The most common applications of spray foam are:

  • Attics
  • Basements
  • New Construction Walls
  • Under Floors
  • Between Metal and Wood Studs
