Spray Foam

Maximize Your Investment

Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. The Department of Energy reports that heating and cooling (space conditioning) accounts for approximately 56% of the energy used in the typical American home. Roughly one third of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors.

Adding an advanced insulation system is necessary to achieve optimal building performance. Lapolla spray polyurethane foam is that advanced insulation system. Spray foam insulation can maximize a home buyer's investment by sealing the building envelope to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering a home. Air exchange in and out of the home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills. The mechanical systems that hear and cool buildings are continuously operating; reducing extreme temperature variations saves on the overuse of mechanical systems and leads to lower energy bills.

Compare Insulation Materials - The Differences Contribute to the Bottom Line

There are important differences to note between spray foam insulation systems and traditional insulation materials. The primary feature that spray foam does not sag, settle, or shrink over time. Spray foam insulation is spray applied to fill cavities of any shape providing a continuous air barrier and it stays in place.

Because traditional insulation does not directly adhere to the substrate, the chance of the insulation material sagging overtime is high. If traditional insulation is not properly installed around irregular framing areas or it shrinks in the wall cavity, voids of 1-2% can lower the effective R-value of traditional insulation materials by 25-40%.

Maintain Moisture Management

In addition to energy consumption, air infiltration and exfiltration, within a home, contributes to almost 99% of moisture migration.

Restricting air movement stops moisture accumulation so that the possibility of mold growth is less likely. Combined with a properly sized HVAC system, Lapolla spray foam insulation helps control the indoor humidity levels to minimize moisture and condensation. Reducing moisture and controlling humidity can also add years to the life expectancy of a home, plus contribute to a healthier indoor environment.

An environmentally friendly home is a great benefit for you, your family and the environment. Take an active role in helping reduce greenhouse gases, thus slowing the effects of global warming. By properly sealing your home you reduce the amount of aoil that is needed to produce electricity and the carbon emitted into the environment.
