Operating multi-family housing is a huge logistical challenge, and smart, forward-thinking building managers look for any means of making their facilities more efficient. Spray foam insulation offers an opportunity to boost energy efficiency across the complex with a single upgrade.
The consistent R-value* and gap-sealing characteristics of spray foam insulation make the material a great fit for apartment complexes and condos. Landlords and building managers can also raise the "green" profile of their building among sustainability-minded tenants with energy efficient upgrades like spray foam insulation.

* R means resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Compare insulation R-values before you buy. There are other factors to consider. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Also, your fuel savings from insulation will depend upon the climate, the type and size of your house, the amount of insulation already in your house, and your fuel use patterns and family size. If you buy too much insulation, it will cost you more than what you'll save on fuel. To get the marked R-value, it is essential that this insulation be installed properly.
