Sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam is a proven performer for new construction that forms a continuous monolithic insulation and air barrier on the wall in a single step.
Enerliv Insulation uses Demilec, our installers are CUFCA (Canadian Urethane Foam Contractors Association) certified and fully trained, we adhere to product specifications on every project.
Offering the highest R-value per inch of any insulation material available, spray foam insulation maintains economic competitiveness with rigid insulation and sheet good or mastic air/vapour barriers. When specified as the primary air barrier for the building, it can form a monolithic envelope around the structure, sealing angles and corners as it flows into gaps and cracks ensuring a tight seal around all penetrations. Spray foam insulation often eliminates the need for an additional vapour barrier since it controls the diffusion of moisture through the walls. By blocking air, dirt, allergens and vapour from entering in the building envelope, polyurethane foam stops mould, mildew and wall damage due to condensation and/or ex-filtration air movement.
For Architects closed cell polyurethane spray foam insulation is the number 1 choice, it offers superior performance, versatility and value to architects who are addressing today's environmental challenges through innovative products and designs. It allows architects greater design options and they are able to create energy-efficient, superior-quality institutional, commercial, industrial and residential buildings.
For Builders seeking to improve the cost, quality and environmental friendliness of their commercial and residential projects choosing polyurethane spray foam insulation is the way to go. It’s rigid, closed cell polyurethane formula ranks amongst the best in the industry for operating efficiency, value, cost-control, durability and environmental benefits. Polyurethane allows builders to create energy-efficient, superior-quality buildings by forming a durable air barrier envelope that prevents dirt, allergens and vapour from entering the assembly. As a result, there is less opportunity for mold, mildew and wall damage due to condensation, and the building's interior is cleaner, healthier and more comfortable.
Remarkable Energy Savings and Product Durability
A few of the benefits of spray foam insulation include the following items:
- A dramatic reduction in energy costs.
- Creates both air and moisture barriers, sealing all areas where installed.
- A decrease in outside pollutants such as dust, pollen and allergens.
- Maximizes the reduction of outside noise and disturbances.
- Recognized as an Environmentally Green Product.
Homeowners are constantly searching for ways to offset rising energy costs. Architects, builders and contractors are aware of this and continue to work tirelessly to help homeowners achieve this goal. Why Choose Spray Foam Insulation.
Why Choose Spray Foam Insulation
Fiberglass is no longer considered to be the most cost-effective insulation material available. Spray polyurethane foam insulation, is a more energy efficient, eco-friendly, and innovative industry technology.
Spray polyurethane foam can form a continuous insulation and air barrier on walls, roofs, around corners and other surfaces. Spray Polyurethane Foam insulation is known to resist heat transfer and offers a highly effective solution for reducing unwanted air leaks and heat loss.
Spray Polyurethane Foam is fully self-adhered to the substrate which makes buildings much stronger and much stiffer. SPF allows for no air space between the insulating material and the substrate, no joints, no glue, no mechanical fasteners and no convection air.
As much as 40% of a building’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. Gaps, holes and air leaks can make energy bills unnecessarily high. SPF acts as both insulation and an air barrier, closing gaps that let air escape and increasing your monthly energy costs.Some common spots for air leaks that can be sealed with spray foam include the area behind knee walls, plumbing vents, recessed lights, furnace flute or ducts, basement rim joists and around windows and doors.
The professionals at Enerliv Insulation install spray foam in virtually any unenclosed cavity: walls and ceilings; attics and flat roofs; cathedral ceilings and floors; even garages. At the end of the day, a home is better insulated, with improved energy efficiency, and with measurably reduced heating and cooling costs. In fact, homes insulated with spray foam are known to have higher resale values than homes without.
