Energy Assault Solutions has been using spray foam to insulate homes and businesses for over 35 years. We are experts when it comes to insulation and will help you get the proper type for all your insulation needs. Here’s an overview of spray foam insulation and how it works.
Spray foam insulation is made up of polyurethane, and when sprayed out of a specialized spray gun, forms an expanding dry foam substance. The special spray gun combines a two component mixture under pressure. When the two components are mixed together at the tip of the gun, they react very quickly, expanding on contact and creating a dry foam. Because of the initial liquid state and the way the foam expands, it can reach down into the tiniest crevices and seal them air- and liquid-tight.
There are two basic types of spray foam insulation (or spray polyurethane foam – SPF for short). The first is called “open cell” and is used for air insulation and also provides an excellent sound barrier. The second type is “closed cell” and does a better job of controlling temperatures, is water resistant, and is more rigid than open cell, but does not absorb sound as well. The experts at Energy Assault Solutions can help you choose the best kind of insulation to meet your specific needs.
When Energy Assault Solutions comes to your home or business to apply spray foam insulation, we work in a safe manner and use all appropriate safety equipment. We wear safety clothing and use a respirator when applying the insulation. You will not be permitted on site while we are performing the work. We ventilate the area to minimize exposure to the chemicals used in SPF and ensure that no health hazards remain before letting you know that it is safe to return.
