Spray Foam Insulation has High R-Value

6. Spray Foam Insulation has High R-Value

What is R-Value?

R stands for Resistance. R-Value is used to quantify insulation’s effectiveness by measuring the Resistance to the passage of heat through the walls and ceilings of a house or building.

Spray foam insulation has an R-value of about 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the specific formulation and application, higher values have been obtained), allowing it to supply more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulations. Spray foam insulation is frequently used to insulate and protect a wide array of residential, industrial, and commercial buildings.

Utility and monthly energy savings of 30% or greater can be achieved as compared to other roofing and insulation systems. The cost of an SPF roof or can often be recovered in less than 5 years, simply through energy savings alone.

Spray Foam insulation will provide you with the highest R-Value and air sealing capabilities. Fiberglass batts have an R-Value of about 3.5 per inch, but they do not air seal. Spray foam provides a permanent barrier to air flow and heat loss. Spray Foam products, depending on the open or closed cell composition, range from about 4.0 per inch to over 6.0 per inch.

It is a fact that one of the most sought after benefits of spray foam insulation is energy savings. However, with the diversity and efficiency of this insulating material, it’s got more to offer rather than just the cost effective benefits it provides. The advantages of foam insulation extend further from the common function it performs which is sealing to keeping a home healthy and comfortable to live in.

  • My tenants always complained about the noise and their inconvenience during winter. So, during the summer, in order to address their concern, I went out and search the internet for reliable people who will carry out the task -This was where I found Spray Foam Insulators. I cross-referenced them in order to be sure that they are for real. So, I hired them and they worked on 4-door apartment and true enough – these people are really committed. Now I know that all the good reviews I have read on them are real!

  • Spray Foam Insulators delivered an outstanding service. I had my house’s wall cavities foam-sprayed in preparation for the winter. On top of delivering a very clean job without leaving a single mess, the staff was courteous and educated me enough on the product that they used. Now, I know that the products doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals like CFCs and all. Kudos for a job well done!

  • In an attempt to be able to save more, I tried DIY spray foaming and simply followed some videos on how to do it online since they are (as I thought it was) very easy to follow. Problem was, I wasn’t so sure about the correct mixture so it left me with brittle texture foam which in the end, I had to remove. Luckily, my brother told me to try Spray Foam Insulators. I gave them a shot and was astonished at how my basement turned out. Had I known them first, I would have not thrown away my money trying to do it on my own. Thanks!

  • I had the entire house insulated by Spray Foam Insulators and I am so happy about the decision as well as choosing them. It is my first time working with them and I am really impressed about the output. It has been 3 months since they insulated the whole place and I can really say that the savings I get from my electric bill is really something that other people should know. Aside from the convenience that you get, you’ll have savings on top of that. I don’t really have a single hesitation in my mind recommending this company.

  • What I really like best about Spray Foam Insulators is their use of environment friendly products that does not compromise our health. Being an advocate of green products, I am really pleased that these people does not only work on delivering an excellent job on carrying insulation projects but more so, on being aware of the environment impact that their product may cause. Had my small basement insulated and I can’t say anything except that it is better now during winter. On top of that, sound proofing is superb!
