Spray Foam Insulation from Toler Insulating
Spray foam insulation is a two-in-one home insulation and air sealing solution that can help homes and businesses increase comfort and reduce energy consumption. This type of foam insulation expands when applied, creating an air barrier and insulating the building all in one step. Toler Insulating, your insulation installation expert, installs spray foam in homes and businesses around the Lynchburg, VA area.
What Are the Benefits of Spray Foam?
Spray foam insulation has many benefits for homes and businesses:
- Increased comfort – Insulation foam seals penetration points which helps reduce drafts, improve air quality and enhance acoustics.
- Energy and cost savings – Spray foam can help reduce monthly energy costs by preventing conditioned air from leaving your home, allowing your HVAC system to run less frequently.
- Healthier indoor air – Spray insulation seals penetration points that allow pollen and other allergens to enter.
- Durability to last a lifetime – Once applied, foam insulation will not shrink, sag or settle — even if it comes into contact with water. Foam insulation sticks to various materials including masonry, cement, metal studs, wood studs and rooflines.
What Are My Choices of Spray Foam?
There are several types of spray foam insulation to choose from for our expert spray foam installers to use.
Open Cell Spray Insulation
It is less dense, as the cells in the foam are not completely closed and air fills all the “open” space inside the material. We install Sealection 500 open cell insulation foam from Demilec which has an R-value of 3.81 at one inch. It is environmentally conscious and free of ozone-depleting chemicals, gases, fibers or asbestos and contains no CFCs, HCFCs, or blowing agents that potentially contribute to global warming. Open cell insulation foam is vapor permeable, dampens sounds, and eliminates air infiltration.
Closed Cell Insulation
It is denser than open cell insulation foam because the cells in the foam are closed, packed tightly together and filled with gas that helps the foam rise and expand. This increases the product’s thermal resistance value (or R-value).
We install Heatlok HFO Pro closed cell insulation from Demilec. Heatlok HFO Pro helps protect against air, thermal, water, and vapor. It has an R-value of 7.4 at one inch and has superior adhesion and compressive strength. It uses Honeywell’s Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent technology, which boasts a GWP of 1 (99.9% lower than traditional blowing agents). Certified for commercial use, Heatlok HFO Pro is NFPA 285 certified with brick, stone, and masonry exterior, it is a Class II vapor retarder at one inch, and it exceeds ASHRAE 90.1 insulation requirements.
Sealection Pour-in-Place foam is a quality insulation solution for sealed spaces including block walls, underground tanks, and more. Sealection Pour-in-Place foam from Demilec is slow-rising with a one-half pound density and an R-value of 3.43 at one inch. It is specially formulated to be injected through a series of drilled holes, without causing damage to the surface anchoring system. It can also be used to insulate ceiling and floor components.
