Why Should I Use Spray Foam?

When professionally installed, Spray Polyurethane Foam provides the ideal energy efficiency by protecting a home against heat loss. Spray foam insulation, like other insulation, saves on energy costs and lowers utility bills, but spray foam insulates 50% better than traditional insulation products.

During warmer seasons, spray foam helps reducing air conditioning use, which means using less energy. All types of Insulation will stop a good deal of energy loss, but some types including spray foams also seal air leaks.

Spray Polyurethane foam is also good method to ensure that the moisture is under control. It creates a vapour barrier that prevents moisture accumulation and reduces heat loss.  As well benefit of reducing the chance of harmful moldmildew and rotting of wood.

At ThermalPro we have a specialised installer, who are trained and certified to welcome your next project.

 

How safe is spray foam?

Spray Polyurethane foam insulation is typically non-toxic after it has cured. At ThermalPro we work following strict guidelines, we ensure that the work area is appropriately prepared and that our installers are wearing approved protective gear. Our certified installers will make sure to protect the personal health and safety of the workers on site or the homeowners.

 

Which region do you serve?

We serve the Prescott-Russell and Ottawa-Carleton region.

 

How many inches of insulation should be in my attic?

The higher the R-Value, the better the thermal performance of the insulation. The recommended level for most attics is to insulate to R-60 or about 22-23 inches, depending on the insulation type.

 

What is R-Value?

‘’R’’ stands for resistance to heat flow. An insulating material’s resistance to conductive heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value The higher the R-value, the better the insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on the type of insulation, its thickness, and its density. A consultation with a ThermalPro associate, will help you determine which R-value, will be needed for your household, and give you the best options.

 

Where should I insulate?

For optimal energy efficiency, your home should be properly insulated from the roof down to its foundation. The most prominent are walls and attics, insulation should also be installed in ceilings with unheated spaces, basement walls, floors above vented crawl spaces, cathedral ceilings, floors over unheated garages or porches, knee walls, and in between interior walls—especially bathrooms—as well as ceilings and floors.

 

Why not do it yourself?

A good insulation installation, is the key element to any healthy and efficient household.

When not correctly installed it can lead to heat and cold air loss, causing it to lose its purpose.

Also, when not properly sealed, it can create moisture and mold within the walls, and that can cause damage to your home or lead to health problems.

If you want the job done right, professionally and worry-free, ThermalPro is the ideal solution.
