New Generation Spray Foam Insulation

athens ga is the unsung hero of Central Wisconsin homes, providing winter energy savings and reducing heating costs. It also offers superior airtightness, which can prevent drafts and keep moisture out. However, like any technology, it can have problems when not properly installed or used.

One of the most common mistakes is not protecting spray foam with a thermal or ignition barrier. This is a requirement by code, and many spray foam contractors fail to follow the instructions. The good news is that the latest spray foams have low GWP blowing agents that are much less toxic to the environment. One of these is Demilec’s closed-cell Heatlok XT HFO. It entered the market three years ahead of a federal ban on HFC 245fa, and it is now available nationwide.

The new blowing agent has a GWP of 1 – 3. This is about 100 times lower than carbon dioxide, which has a GWP of over 3,400. It’s a huge step forward, and it makes sense to upgrade to this new technology when it’s available.

The new spray foams are also more pliable and more durable than their predecessors. They can be sprayed into any attic, rim joist or wall in a home, and they can also be applied to the walls of new construction or pole barns. They also offer design flexibility because they can be sprayed into nooks and crannies that are impossible to insulate with other products.
