Lets get to the debate - Icynene spray foam vs fibreglass
Icynene is one of the most innovative spray foam materials on the market, find out why Icynene comes out more economically and cost effective compared to traditional insulates such as Fibreglass.
Spray Foam Insulation will save you money.
By not insulating your home properly you can lose up to 50% of heat through your roof (See below image). With it’s ability to create an air barrier wherever it is applied, Icynene can help reduce your home’s air loss, contribute to lower heating and cooling bills, and help dampen airborne sound transmission.
Icynene Spray Foam Isn’t Easily Damaged.
Spray Foam, although when initially it is dispersed as a liquid, expands to up to 80x it’s size before hardening and once it solidifies it is not easily moved again. Problems with traditional insulates such as Fibreglass are that they can be easily disturbed by household pets, children or moving items around the house.
Fibreglass, once disturbed can cause airborne irritants to disperse which affects respiratory systems and can be extremely itchy for the skin.
Icynene Spray Foam is a Modern Material.
Icynene has been around for over 25 years, this renders it modern in terms of insulation materials. Fiberglass is an outdated technology, it’s itchy and an irritant to breathing.
Icynene offers a modern solution which has rapidly grown in popularity since it’s arrival to the UK from Cananda.
Icynene Spray Foam Protects Your Home from Water.
Many open cell spray foams (Such as Icynene) drain water rather than holding or storing it. Holding or storing water can be a prime breeding ground for damp and bacteria.
Fibreglass insulation is made from shredded newspaper and drinks up water. They do not repel water at all which can severely affect the way your insulation performs. Water intrusion also can contribute towards decreasing your EPC certificate rating meaning you spend more on energy.
Icynene Spray Foam Insulation Doesn’t Attract Pests.
Icynene does not provide a source of food or nesting for rodents, termites or even birds. Fibreglass can be ripped apart by rodents and also easily navigable by them.
Once fibreglass has been ripped open then it leaves room for cold air to pass through and damage insulating qualities.
