Efficiency Spray Foam Insulation Ltd.

Efficiency Spray foam Insulation Ltd is a highly effective energy-efficient home improvement option. It is sprayed into place, and then immediately expands to form an airtight thermal and vapor barrier that dramatically increases your home’s comfort while significantly decreasing heating and cooling costs. Often, the initial cost of spray foam is offset by the lower energy bills and reduced repair and pest control expenses that will be saved over time.

While the benefits of spray foam are undeniable, there are some issues homeowners should be aware of before deciding on this type of insulation for their home. First, professional installation is strongly recommended. This is because the process of spraying and curing emits a large quantity of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These can cause respiratory problems if inhaled and can also lead to stains on furniture, walls and floors. As such, occupants should vacate the home during the spraying and curing processes.

Maximizing Energy Efficiency: The Role of Spray Foam Insulation

It is also important to note that spray foam insulation requires special application equipment. This equipment includes a specialized spray gun that combines two chemical components—isocyanate and polyurethane—to create a foam that expands. These chemicals are irritants to the eyes and skin, and they can cause respiratory problems if inhaled. As such, it is important to wear protective clothing, gloves, a mask and respirator when applying spray foam.

Finally, it’s worth noting that spray foam insulation is non-toxic after it dries. However, during the spraying and curing process it emits a gas that can blur vision and make breathing difficult. It is also recommended that occupants of the house stay away from the area until it has cured, which usually takes about 1-3 days.
