Benefits of Foam

Save Money

According to the US Department of Energy, “heating and cooling account for about 56% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest energy expense for most homes.”

So how do you reduce over half of your energy costs?  With proper insulation. Insulation helps reduce air from getting into (or escaping from) your home.  While “batt” insulation like fiberglass and denim seem like easy solutions, they can still allow air to escape and still need a barrier system to seal any crevices.

With just one application, Icynene® spray insulation can help reduce infiltration by up to 90%!  By providing an airtight barrier system, it seals all crevices and gaps that could allow air to escape.  That means you can save up to 50% on your energy bills!

Breathe Easy

We want to feel safe in our own homes, but did you know that the air you breathe inside your home could be more harmful to you than the air you breathe outside?  That’s because it could contain things like allergens, mold and volatile organic compounds – or voc’s, which are gases that could include a variety of chemicals – that can be up to ten times higher inside than outside!  These things can affect your health (especially if you already have allergies), and your energy levels.

So what can you do to keep the bad air out and the good air in? Use an insulation that doesn’t contain voc’s, like the Icynene Insulation System®.

It stops the bad air (with allergens and pollen) from getting into your home and keeps the good air in.  It also helps keep your indoor humidity between 35-55%, which minimizes the growth of mold, mildew, dust and other allergens.  It also helps reduce noise pollution by reducing noise levels both inside and outside of your home, can help extend the life of your home and can save you money on your energy costs.

Go Green

Eco-friendly and energy conservation are becoming household words, and that includes even those things we can’t see – like insulation. Icynene® contains no chemicals that destroy the ozone, it has no formaldehyde, it’s 99% air and 1% water AND it has earned the EnergyStar seal of approval and is recognized for it’s “green” properties by being a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Key Points

  • The Icynene Insulation System® creates a superior air-seal, effectively minimizing air leakage to deliver advanced moisture control, healthy air, and energy savings of up to 50%.
  • Icynene® is sprayed into walls, ceilings, attics, and floors and then it expands in seconds to create a soft foam insulation and air barrier system.
  • Icynene® outperforms other insulation materials by providing ideal R-value levels and air-sealing in one step, without the need for labor-intensive sealing materials.
  • By minimizing random air leakage (convection) – the source of up to half of a building’s energy loss – Icynene® delivers energy savings of up to 50%.
  • As an air barrier, Icynene® minimizes the intrusion of outdoor allergens, odors and pollutants and works with proper mechanical ventilation to let occupants control the quality of air they breathe.
  • Icynene® is 100% water-blown and does not produce harmful emissions that can compromise indoor air quality and diminish the insulation’s rated R-value, which is 3.7.
