What is Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray Foam is an insulation material that acts as an air and sound barrier, providing optimal insulation support for both summer and winter. ECO Spray-Foam Systems Ltd uses the Icynene Insulation System. Icynene produces a series of soft, flexible spray foam insulation products that deliver up to 50% greater energy savings when compared to other insulation products. Icynene spray foam solutions do not only provide financial incentives, but environmental ones too. The insulation is 100% water blown and doesn't contain any harmful gases. With this insulation you will use less energy on heating and cooling, thus, reducing your carbon footprint. Importantly, Icynene products have helped define a European standard for foam insulations. There's a reason why in the past 30 years more than 3 billion board feet of insulation has been installed.

Financial Savings

With spray foam insulation, you can save up to 50% in monthly heating and cooling costs.

Eco-friendly

By using less energy you are, in turn, reducing your carbon emission output, benefiting the ecosystem.

Sustainability

Spray foam solutions are highly durable, it doesn't degrade from humidity and prevents mould growth.

Air Quality

It acts an effective barrier against pollutants that may enter your house such as pollen and dust.

Open Cell vs Closed Cell

Before deciding which insulation service is best for you, it is important to understand the differences between Open Cell insulation and Closed Cell insulation. Although they both provide quality insulation, it is our duty to acknowledge that different areas a building require different types of foam insulations.

Open Cell: This foam insulation is a less dense solution, and it is full of cells that are not completely encapsulated. This allows the foam to be softer and more flexible. The benefits of open cell is that due to its ability to expand up to 400mm of thickness, it can insulate harder areas to reach. The ability to fit into every nook and cranny provides the perfect platform to breathe and soundproof rooms.

Closed Cell: On the other hand, there is a more dense and solid type of foam insulations, perfect for resisting against extreme temperatures. This robust form of insulation acts as a strong water vapour barrier, preventing the likes of water and moisture. This type of insulation is favourable for areas that require a better thermal value and can be applied to all areas such as not breathable surfaces and asbestos.

You wouldn't leave your window open in winter,
so why leave your roof open?

Financial Benefits

Stage 1

First and foremost, once insulation is implemented we can then begin to start saving on energy costs.
But how how can we do this?

Stage 2

Secondly, you will be able to reduce the usage of fans and air-con units throughout the ever-increasing summer periods.

Stage 3

Alternatively, throughout winter, the foam insulation will allow you to reduce the usage of central heating.

Stage 4

After, you will start to realise that your bills will be up to 50% cheaper on ever-rising energy costs. Through minimised usage of heating and cooling, you will, in turn, save money.

Stage 5

Last, but not least, you can potentially see a complete return on your investment in as little as 3 years. After you reach break-even on your investment, you will start to save money with the lifespan of the spray foam insulation - which generally lasts as long as a house.

Environmental Benefits

Spray foam insulation goes further than just saving you money. With the correct implementation from a team of professionals, spray foam insulation can provide an array of healthy, sustainable and eco-friendly benefits. Not to mention that the product is 100% water-based, odourless and contains no harmful gases.

Low Carbon Emissions: Due to the fact that you will be using less energy consumption, from heating and cooling, because of what spray foam has to offer, you will be reducing your carbon output. This will benefit the environment around you on a local scale and provide benefits for the global ecological system.

Enhanced Air Quality: In addition to benefiting to the environment, the air quality of your internal building will be improved. Spray foam insulation prevents the passing of pollutants, dust, pollens, dirt and other unwarranted toxins. This, in turn, will provide the area insulated with better living or working conditions.

High Standards: Icynene spray foam insulation complies with international standards and even helped form the European standard for insulation. It contains no gases, fibres or asbestos.

Spray Foam Assessment Guide

Stage 1: Inspect

To begin any project we perform a thorough inspection. This allows EcoSpray-Foam Systems to understand what type of spray foam you will need, whether that is open cell or closed cell. Also it helps us size up the project and plan accordingly.

Stage 2: Assess

Assessing your current situation is the next step. We can determine what current insulation you have in place and perform a series of tests, such as moisture and eat tests. These tests are helpful to let us know how we can approach the project in question, in which we then go on to provide a full report for.

Stage 3: Report

At this stage we will then produce a detailed and comprehensive report of our clients current situation. We will have a noted assessment of the current conditions and we will provide our recommendations.

Stage 4: Install

At the installation stage, we begin the process of implementing your chosen, brand-new and eco-friendly, insulation. We would have pre-agreed on a date to arrive and perform the services in a professional and expert manner.

Stage 5: Follow Up

Finally, we perform a follow-up to ensure you are satisfied with the results. We want to make sure that this state-of-the-art spray foam insulation is to your liking and expectations.
