In reference to exterior continuous insulation applications, with its greater thermal resistance, the use of spray foam insulation can lead to reductions in overall wall thickness over foam board insulation designs.
Even in the middle of winter, spray foam insulation allows commercial projects to continue without schedule delays. Understand how to effectively insulate exterior walls in commercial buildings in cold weather.
Energy codes are requiring higher thermal performance values in walls, particularly in the form of exterior continuous insulation. Icynene's new white paper focuses on comparing rigid foam board to spray foam insulation.
Hot or warm climates like the southern states of the USA can benefit equally as well as their northern counterparts from spray foam insulation. In fact, one area of the typical family home that can benefit from spray foam insulation is the unvented attic.
Work has started on the ABC (Affordable, Buildable, Certifiable) Green Home 2.0 in the Californian city of Walnut after the ceremonious groundbreaking recently. The project will feature energy efficient technologies such as Icynene spray foam insulation.
Home improvement expert and host of nationally syndicated radio show The Money Pit® embarked on a major renovation project of his historic New Jersey family home to optimize its functionality, performance and overall comfort.
Nowadays, there are an array of incentives and marketing messaging behind energy and energy conservation and how it leads to monetary savings. RESNET shows that with home improvement, the savings are a reality.
