At IEC we install a spray foam insulation product perfect for insulating roofs. As we all know heat rises and in a house with no roof insulation as much as 25% heat escapes through this, which can have a massive impact on a person’s energy bills.
By using spray foam insulation, you drastically reduce the amount of heat that can escape the property, meaning that a property will remain warmer for longer and energy bills will be reduced.
So why chose Spray Foam?
There are many reasons to choose spray foam over other alternatives such as:
- – Greater thermal efficiency – At equivalent depths polyurethane insulation offers greater thermal efficiency, this is particularly great in room in roof projects as the reduced build-up of the ceiling means there is more head space in the room.
- – No Wastage – You may be thinking that it would be quicker and easier to buy board insulation from your local hardware shop and insert the insulation yourself. What isn’t normally considered in that buying and cutting down board insulation you wave not only wasted a lot of material in off cuts but also a lot of time. By using an in-situ application there is no wasted material and the coverage rates are much higher!
- – Eliminated Air Leakage – Unlike with other insulation methods where you will get air escaping either through the material or in gaps between the insulation and the rafters, the in-situ application of spray foam means you can completely fill the gap between rafters meaning there is no air leakage.
