A new application for an existing technology
To quickly understand how spray foam insulation works, you can do this simple test with your kitchen freezer or home hot water heater. Place your hand on the side of either one of these items. The inside temperature of your freezer is most likely set to zero degrees, while hot water heaters have an internal temperature range of between 120 and 160 degrees. In either case, you can safely place your hand on the outside of both items without fear of injury. Additionally, there is no condensation on the outside of the freezer or hot water heater, signifying no loss of temperature from the inside out – frozen items stay frozen, and the hot water remains hot.
This is all because of closed cell polyurethane foam insulation. The average freezer has one inch of closed cell polyurethane foam insulation between the inside freezer wall and appliance housing. The same holds true for hot water heaters. Based on these applications, imagine the benefits, comfort and cost savings you would see immediately by using spray foam insulation in your home or business.
