Benefits of Spray Foam
Spray foam is the most environmentally responsible insulation on the planet!
Spray foam is the only type of insulation that can dramatically contribute to reducing your home's carbon footprint. Conserving energy in your home is conserving our earth.
Demilec offers two lines of spray foam made from renewable materials, Heatlok Soy is soy based product and Agribalance is a vegetable based product.
Spray foam insulation reduces energy costs by reducing the flow of air through the walls, ceiling and floor of the home. By reaching every crack and crevice spray foam creates an air barrier drastically reducing the costs of heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. According to the US Department of Energy studies show 40% of energy loss is a result of air ebb and flow through your structure (for more information on home energy loss click here).
Spray foam insulation conserves energy and saves you money!
You can expect a 30% to 50% energy savings by insulating your home with spray foam; no other insulation product can offer this savings.
Due to the effective air barrier, spray foam allows for complete control of interior air quality. It locks out the infiltration of harmful air pollutants, rodents, noise, insects, and prevents dangerous mold growth providing a healthy environment for your family.
Spray foam has no food value for mold to grow and will not support mold spores. The air barrier that spray foam creates stops moisture from penetrating into the wall cavities, therefore it prevents moisture from building up in the wall spaces where mold usually grows.
By sealing your home with spray foam you will also seal out those unwanted pests like insects and rodents.
Spray foam drastically reduces noise irritants in your home! From the outside it will help block out noise caused by traffic, neighbors, pets, and airplanes. From the interior of your home it creates a noise barrier between floors, stair wells, utility rooms, and bathrooms.
Spray foam is a perfect solution for controlling the noise output from home theaters or music studios.
Strong and Durable
Spray foam will not settle or lose its R-value like other insulation options. Spray foam is a permanent application, it will not deteriorate over time.
High density, rigid, close cell foam will increase the sheer strength of a remodeled or new construction building because it adheres fully to the exterior sub structure and stud cavities.
The added strength of your home will reduce wall movement due to powerful winds and vibrations—ultimately protecting your home’s value and the well-being of your family.
