Enjoy more privacy and quiet using open-cell spray foam, a low density foam meant for use in interior walls and between floors that allows enough absorption to provide sound attenuation in a variety of applications. Low density, open-cell foam is the ideal solution for home theater and media rooms, playrooms and home offices or to block sound from plumbing. It is also an excellent choice for any buildings that feature shared walls such as apartments, condos and commercial spaces. A specially designed spray applied foam, combines a sound barrier with spray foam insulation that features an approximate R-value of 4.45 per inch, achieves a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating of 35 at three inches thickness and conforms to ASTM E-8 as a Class 2 material for flame and smoke.
Unlike Fiberglass batts, cellulous or and other conventional insulation, the use of closed-cell Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) provides a complete air barrier plus up to R-7.4 per inch. The closed-cell SPF is a Class 2 vapor retarder and does not absorb water. This feature prevents mold and mildew from taking hold in the assemblies. As well as repelling moisture, SPF is not a food source for insects of vermin. For the additional cost of using spray foam insulation you achieve a tight, draft-free structure that is much more efficient and costs less to heat and cool. In new construction, you can build with smaller lumber, thus saving even more money.
Creating an air barrier with Spray Polyurethane Foam is the smart choice for those concerned about energy efficiency and saving money. By controlling air leakage, your home or building will perform 30-50% better than with traditional insulation methods. Indoor temperatures stay constant allowing for decreased used of heating or air conditioning. This translates to savings on utility bills and extends the life of your heating and cooling equipment by up to four times. An added avenue to savings - when building a new home using SPF you can downsize your HVAC system and potentially use smaller framing lumber. Make sure to discuss this with your builder.
If your job specifications call for the tightest, most efficient and comfortable structure possible then applying Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation is the answer. Let Smart Choice Insulation & Roofing, Inc. assist you in the details.
Considering the costs of energy to either heat or cool a structure the extra costs of adding Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) to any new project becomes insignificant as the ROI pays you back, typically in less than five years.
