Spray foam is useful in a variety of conditions. Roofs, attics, windows, underfloor heating systems, and interior and exterior walls will all benefit from it.
Agricultural farm houses, commercial and industrial buildings, sheds, shipping containers, vessels, and the refrigeration industry are some of the other applications.
Spray foam insulation is, without a doubt, the most effective insulating material available today. In contrast to conventional insulating materials like rock wool, fiberglass, cellulose, and polystyrene boards, it has a higher U-Value.
It’s easy to use and doesn’t create a lot of mess or disruption to everyday activities.
A traditional Irish home can be insulated in a single day.
Spray foam insulation will not only keep your home warm in the winter, but it will also keep it cool in the summer. It helps the house to breathe by allowing moisture-laden air to escape due to its composition and “Cell” structure.
It also creates an airtight shield around your house, preventing cold wind and rain from entering. All other insulating products on the market today fall well short in this regard, allowing the heat in your home to escape.
Spray foam insulation works well as a sound barrier as well. It significantly decreases the amount of noise that enters the home from the outside world. When a home or company is located in a densely populated or developed city, or when a home is near an airport, this is advantageous.
It’s often used to deaden sound that travels from room to room or across floors inside the interior walls. It works particularly well on bathroom walls, where noises from showers and flushing toilets can be a nuisance.
It also reduces noise from in-wall or under-floor piping by encasing and insulating the pipes.
Upgrading your insulation is a very cost-effective and practical way to increase your home’s energy efficiency. Did you realize that most homes in Ireland spend over half of their monthly energy bill on heating or cooling? This is because most homes have inadequate insulation, which leads to unnecessary heat transfer and higher utility bills. During the winter, heat moves from your heated rooms to the colder spaces in your unheated attic or basement, and eventually seeps outdoors. In the summer, the opposite occurs, with the hot air moving in towards your cool, air-conditioned rooms. The primary purpose of insulation is to create a barrier that reduces the movement of heat in and out of your home, thus conserving energy.
Your home and family will be more comfortable and you will save money if you have the right insulation products professionally installed. The effectiveness of insulation is measured in R-values, which indicates the material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation provided. Homes in the Meath benefit from higher R-value products because of the cold winters and variable climate.
