Residential Uses for Sprayfoam Equipment

shutterstock_80046073Whether your customers are hoping to remodel their existing home or properly outfit a new construction, they face the question of insulation.

Different types of insulation offer different benefits that impact the environment, quality of life and their wallet. Therefore, the decision boils down to what kind of insulation to use, and how best to have it installed.

As more and more homeowners turn to Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation solutions to help seal and insulate their homes, it is important for

Here are four reasons to help you convince homeowners why they should choose this increasingly popular insulation solution:

  1. Exceptional Insulating Properties. Did you know that SPF boasts the highest R-value per inch of any other commercial material, upwards of R-7.0, compared with traditional fiberglass at R-3.5? If your customers need more convincing, explain that a higher R-value enables spray foam to provide more thermal resistance with less material, making a house more comfortable and less expensive to heat in the winter, and cooler in the summer.
  1. Puts a Stop to Air Infiltration. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), approximately 40 percent of a building’s total energy loss is due to air infiltration. In residential homes, air commonly infiltrates via cracks and gaps in walls, sockets, doorways, and windows. Fiberglass insulation enables air infiltration. However, spray foam adheres to the walls and floors, filling stud cavities to establish an insulating barrier that stops air from leaking.
  1. Reduces Mold Growth and Moisture Issues. Mold often grows as a result of extreme heat and moisture. Professionals have discovered that the most efficient way to control mold growth in residential buildings is to manage moisture levels. As such, contractors can successfully use sprayfoam equipment to apply SPF to work as a vapor and air barrier. When applied, SPF creates a tight space by minimizing air and moisture flow.
  1. Insulation Increases a Home’s Indoor Comfort Level. By using spray foam insulation equipment to apply SPF insulation, contractors can help homeowners achieve a more comfortable interior environment. Spray foam’s sealing properties help eliminate drafts and improve temperature regulation. Also, spray foam’s air and vapor barrier qualities can dramatically control the existence of moisture and allergens in the air.
