Improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home with spray foam insulation

Spray foam insulation in Conway

A versatile energy-saver. 2-part spray foam expands after it's applied, creating an effective thermal and moisture barrier. Thanks to its unique properties, it can be used to solve comfort & energy problems in many parts of the house.

The insulation "team" that's supposed to make our homes comfortable and energy efficient is truly a motley crew. In the old days, sawdust was sometimes dumped inside walls to slow heat loss. Then came vermiculite - porous lightweight pebbles with the look and feel of kitty litter.

Today we still rely on an old-timer, fiberglass batt insulation that's made from spun glass fibers. But if you're looking for a star player on the insulation team, a standout with qualities that other types of insulation can't touch, it's got to be spray foam. More specifically, we're talking about closed-cell polyurethane spray foam.

    After

    This Little River customer had concerns about the temperature within their storage units and wished to regulate the temperature to make them more comfortable while staying energy efficient. To address this issue and prevent heat from seeping into the units, Carolina Energy Conservation installed closed-cell spray foam. This type of insulation is an excellent choice due to its high R-value of about 6.0 per inch. It acts as a great insulator, preventing heat seepage and regulating internal temperature by sealing any gaps and leaks within the walls and ceilings, effectively locking out hot air. With the spray foam in place, the units are now well-insulated and will have better energy efficiency and temperature regulation.

    The homeowner in North Myrtle Beach wanted to prevent water seepage and heat transfer in their home. Since there was no prior insulation, these issues were a concern. The best solution was to add closed-cell spray foam. This type of foam expands to fill gaps and crevices, creating a barrier against water infiltration. It also repels water and has a high R-value, about 6.0 per inch of thickness, indicating excellent insulating properties. This helps prevent heat transfer, making it an effective solution for improving energy efficiency and maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures. Now, their home is insulated and protected from water and heat.

    After

    This Georgetown home had the typical fiberglass bats of insulation. The homeowner called Carolina Energy Conservation for a free home energy evaluation. The attic space had home air conditioned air seeping through into the hot attic. This caused the homeowner's air conditioner to run longer trying to keep the home comfortable. The homeowner chose to have Carolina Energy Conservation remove the leaky rolls of insulation, air seal and spray foam their attic space to keep the leaks from happening. The homeowner can now be confident that the sprayfoam does not settle or shift and they are on their way to saving energy!

Spray foam advantages:

R value: Poly spray foam has a higher R-value per inch than any other commonly used insulation -R-6.2 or higher, depending on the formulation.

Air barrier: Spray foam air-seals and insulates in one step. Its ability to expand and fill gaps and cracks make it an ideal air-sealing material, and it stays in place because of its super-adhesive qualities. Spray foam is often spot-applied as an air-sealing treatment prior to filling an attic with blow-in insulation. But when applied in more generous amounts, it can eliminate the need for other types of insulation.

Waterproof: Moisture will soak its way through fiberglass and cellulose insulation, but polyurethane spray foam stops it cold. Its closed cell structure means that water can't migrate from one tiny cell or bubble to a neighboring one.

Foolproof: Did you know that a void (missing insulation) of just 5% of an insulated area can diminish overall insulation performance by as much as 50%? It's very difficult to install fiberglass insulation perfectly, so voids are not uncommon. But spray foam's expanding, super-sticky characteristics just about eliminate the possibility of voids. And once the foam cures, it's not going to settle or shift like fiberglass or cellulose can.

There are two basic types of spray foam insulation:

1-part foam: You've seen and probably used this type of spray foam, which comes in pressurized cans that are sold at home centers and hardware stores under brand names like GREAT STUFF™. This single-component foam is super-sticky, and expands at different rates (depending on the type you buy) immediately after application. Since it seals gaps as well as insulates, this product is often referred to as an "insulating foam sealant."

2-part foam: To insulate an entire basement or attic with spray foam, contractors use 2-part polyurethane foam that comes in a pair of pressurized metal containers. When both components (resin and a catalyst) are mixed together at the nozzle, a foaming chemical reaction takes place that causes the material to expand.

Spray foam can be troublesome to apply by yourself

Tricky: It takes experience to get the feel of applying spray foam, especially two-part foams. With their different expansion rates and other qualities, they prove difficult for someone without experience to get the most of this material. For example, a high-expanding foam will damage a door or window jamb, but our training and experience can prevent this from happening.

Oftentimes, spray foam can also be wasted and get messy -- but our fully trained specialists know how to get the job done well the first time! 

Temperature sensitive: Cold temperatures affect the chemistry that causes the foaming action. It's critical to keep spray foam cans or two-part foam canisters within a specific temperature range for successful application.
