Many homeowners, building owners and government agencies are concerned about how their decisions on energy conservation will have a lasting effect on the environment. Energy conservation is a national priority and a personal priority for many Americans, along with “Green Building” and the conservation of other precious natural resources such as lumber from our forests. The use of recycled materials and protection of the ozone layer are additional environmental concerns. Polyurethane spray foam insulation provides a valuable tool to the homeowner, designer and contractor in helping to protect the environment.
Conserve Fossil Fuels:
Polyurethane sprayed foam insulation can reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and lower utility bills.
Reduce Lumber Usage:
The high R values of Polyurethane sprayed foam insulation allow the designer and builder to reduce the thickness of wood frame walls and ceilings to reduce the size of wood structural beams.
Zero Ozone Depletion:
Polyurethane sprayed foam insulation uses a new generation of blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion.
Polyurethane sprayed foam insulation can be used as an integral component in Green Built construction and LEED-Homes.
