Spray Foam Insulation Fort Smith AR
Welcome to AR Spray Foam Insulation Fort Smith. Here we help homeowners create a more comfortable home environment while saving them money on energy costs.
Who doesn’t want a comfortable home, or to reduce energy bills? If that’s you then spray foam insulation is what you need. Spray foam is the best and fastest growing method of insulating walls, attics, crawl spaces and even roofs.
Does your house get very cold during winter? Does it get unbearably hot in the summer? Can sound travel easily from one room to another? If these problems sound familiar, spray foam can easily be your solution.
At Arkansas Spray Foam Insulation, our insulation contractors can improve the overall quality of your home with spray foam insulation.
What is spray foam insulation?
Spray foam is made from a mixture of chemical, which when combined, the resulting reaction expands up to 30-60 times its liquid volume. This expansion makes spray foam a good insulator as it expands to fill the available space by forming an airtight barrier that is not only moisture resistant but temperature resistant and soundproof.
There are two types of spray foam insulation we use in Fort Smith homes and commercial buildings.
Open-cell Spray Foam
Just as the name suggests, this type of spray foam is where the cells are purposely not completely closed. This kind expands much more and makes for good soundproofing.
Closed-cell Spray Foam
In closed-cell spray foam, the cells are uniform and completely closed. This results in a rigid foam that is perfect for moisture control and air trapping.
Why is spray foam insulation better than other insulating materials?
You’ve probably heard of different methods of insulation like cellulose and fiberglass insulation. But what makes spray foam stand out?
Spray polyurethane foam stops air leakage and helps maintain a steady temperature throughout the home. This helps to reduce the amount of energy your HVAC equipment consumes.
Moisture and Sound Control
Closed-cell spray foam not only forms an airtight barrier, it is also impermeable. Open-cell spray foam is great to use in walls and floors as it significantly reduces the transfer of noise.
Spray foam may seem expensive upfront and we understand that. However, it will last for the lifetime of your home or commercial building. Coupled with this no need for replacement and the reduced energy usage equals less money being spent after your initial investment.
Long Term Thermal Resistance
The Long Term Thermal Resistance (LTTR), which is measured in R-value, of spray foam is approximately 3.2 to 6.5 per inch. By comparison, the R-value of fiberglass insulation is 3 to 4 per inch.
