Bio-Foam Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation has many advantages over alternative insulation products such as fiberglass and cellulose. If foam insulation is used throughout the entire home, it seals-off all air infiltration by sealing the voids throughout the insulated area. This helps to create a thermal envelope controlling the air inside the building allowing for the downsizing of the buildings HVAC systems lowering building costs.

Green Insulation Technologies manufactures two product lines a water blown Soy based foam and a water blown Castor based foam.

Since we use water as a blowing agent and not 245fa (liquid hydrofluorocarbon) which is what many manufacturers use in their foams, our foam has NO VOCs or ozone depleting CFCs or HFCs.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Saves energy operating costs. 30-50% per year
  • Reduces air and moisture infiltration-resulting in a more consistent temperature
  • Reduces dust and pollen infiltration
  • Adds structural strength to the building
  • Reduces the likelihood of mold
  • Reduces noise
  • Reduces ice damages
  • Reduces HVAC capacity requirements
  • R-values remain stable over time
  • It has the highest performance of all insulation
  • It is permanent and will not sag or settle

DISADVANTAGES:

  • The upfront cost is higher than conventional insulation
  • Payback period is 2-4 years
  • It is not generally a Do-it-Yourself project
