Is Spray Foam Energy-Efficient?
Yes, spray foam is energy-efficient. In fact, it’s one of the most energy-efficient methods there are for insulating your office.
When the expert insulation techs from Spray On Foam & Coatings install our product in your office or workspace, the foam expands and fills all voids. This creates an airtight and watertight seal that contributes to the overall energy-efficiency of your business. Truly, it is more than just a contributing factor; it is the main factor in energy savings and efficiencies.
With no unwanted air infiltration, spray-foam insulation earns its high R-Values. These are measurements that account for am insulating material’s ability to resist conductive heat flow.
“The R-value depends on the type of insulation, its thickness, and its density,” explains the U.S. Department of Energy. “The R-value of some insulations also depends on temperature, aging, and moisture accumulation. When calculating the R-value of a multilayered installation, add the R-values of the individual layers.”
At Spray On Foam & Coatings, we install both open-cell insulation products and closed-cell insulation products. The R-values of open-cell are between 3.75 to 4 per inch. The R-values of our closed-cell insulation products range from 6.7 to 7 per inch.
In addition to the energy efficiency inherent in the product itself, it’s also important to keep something else in mind: This is lifetime insulation. That in and of itself can be considered a facet of energy efficiency. Spray foam insulation not only insulates your business; it saves energy and helps lower your energy bills for many years.
Spray On Foam insulation installers are trained and certified by the Air Barrier Association of America. We’re experts at installing our energy-efficient insulation in Oregon and Washington. That’s because we’ve been at it for more than 45 years!
Heating and cooling your office spaces, warehouses, and other business properties can cause energy bills to skyrocket. Traditional insulation doesn’t do as good a job as spray cell foam. Buildings enveloped in our products have much tighter air seals and, thus, much less air leakage than fiberglass insulation.
