High R-Value

6. Spray Foam Insulation has High R-Value

What is R-Value?

R stands for Resistance. R-Value is used to quantify insulation’s effectiveness by measuring the Resistance to the passage of heat through the walls and ceilings of a house or building.

Spray foam insulation has an R-value of about 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the specific formulation and application, higher values have been obtained), allowing it to supply more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulations. Spray foam insulation is frequently used to insulate and protect a wide array of residential, industrial, and commercial buildings.

Utility and monthly energy savings of 30% or greater can be achieved as compared to other roofing and insulation systems. The cost of an SPF roof or can often be recovered in less than 5 years, simply through energy savings alone.

Spray Foam insulation will provide you with the highest R-Value and air sealing capabilities. Fiberglass batts have an R-Value of about 3.5 per inch, but they do not air seal. Spray foam provides a permanent barrier to air flow and heat loss. Spray Foam products, depending on the open or closed cell composition, range from about 4.0 per inch to over 6.0 per inch.

It is a fact that one of the most sought after benefits of spray foam insulation is energy savings. However, with the diversity and efficiency of this insulating material, it’s got more to offer rather than just the cost effective benefits it provides. The advantages of foam insulation extend further from the common function it performs which is sealing to keeping a home healthy and comfortable to live in.

Testimonials

  • I found Jake enormously detail oriented in purchasing his equipment for AT-Foam. A tough sale to say the least but one that understood the importance of getting what he paid for and making sure what he got was what he paid for. That in itself should warrant a recommendation as most entrepreneurs these days are “instant gratification” oriented and focused exclusively on the cheap price. Good luck Jake & if I can help-you know where/how to reach me.

  • We are finishing our basement and decided that spray foam would be a great way to both insulate and also create the vapor barrier for the exterior walls. Jake responded quickly with a quote. He recommended spraying the rim joists which I decided was a good idea. He then sprayed the walls with the “closed cell” foam and then we had him spray the HVAC ducts with open cell foam for noise attenuation. We were also building one room as a music room for our son who is playing the drumset. We had AT spray the open cell foam on the walls in this room to create a sound proof room.

  • Older house poorly insulated, problem of freezing pipes and mice, they drilled holes in drywall and spray foam insulation inside walls. Sprays as liquid, fills areas, cracks and expands. They were knowledgeable about product and procedure. This company gave excellent service. It was snowing that day. They protected the carpet and entire area. Were considerate and completed in a timely manner. Excellent work performed.
