If you’re looking for your home to be eco friendly, then insulation should be high on your list of priorities. Insulation and ventilation are critical components of sustainable building design.Having eco friendly insulation in your home makes it more energy efficient, being able to keep your house cooler in the Summer, and warmer in the Winter without having to resort to turning the boiler up.
This has a knock on effect as cutting your energy consumption will cut carbon emission, and will help combat climate change as well.
Spray Foam: An Eco Friendly Insulation Solution
Spray foam offers superior insulation qualities, when compared to other insulates, such as Polyurethane or Fibreglass insulation.
Ranging from R-4.9 to R-7 per inch* of thickness, spray foam typically meets or exceeds the thermal performance compared to rigid foam board insulation products of comparable thickness. Its insulating qualities allow a thinner layer of insulation to be applied; this allows for more loft space in your home.
Even if you already have insulated your home with material such as fibreglass insulation such as spray foam, can offer a much more practical and energy efficient solution
What Are R Values and Why Do they Matter?
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.
Can Eco Friendly Insulation Improve My EPC Rating?
Heat is one of the biggest expenses in your energy bill, so keeping heat from escaping is one of the best ways to save money every month.
Eco friendly insulation can definitely benefit your home if you are looking to make it more energy efficient.
Even if you already have insulated your home with material such as fibreglass insulation such as spray foam, can offer a much more practical and energy efficient solution.
If your home is not adequately insulated, your home will be losing the following percentages of heat through various places:
Infiltration/ Air Leakage: 35%
Windows and doors: 18%-20%
Floors and below grades space: 15%-18%
Does Spray Foam Stop Air Leakage?
Air leakage can account for up to half of your home’s energy loss. Without properly sealing your home, the gaps left throughout your home’s building envelope can equate to the size of a basketball leaking out enough air to fill two blimps every day!
An insulation and air barrier system ensures that your home doesn’t lose lots of heated or cooled air and provides an effective R-Value*.
By insulating and air sealing your home, you can reduce your heating and cooling bills!
Spray foam insulation can provide a high, code-compliant R-value* plus air sealing to maximise comfort and minimise your heating and cooling bills.
