Foam Insulation pays for itself!
Regardless of how you may feel about global warming, conservation through effective building insulation is a concept that just makes common sense. Keeping the outside air out and the inside air in means less energy is required to maintain a comfortable air temperature for occupants. And that means a lower overall energy cost that will literally pay back the cost of improved insulation in just a few years even as it reduces overall CO2 emissions.
Let Tillotson Enterprises show you how a fully insulated building, including both walls and roof, can improve indoor air quality, reduce energy costs and help contribute to an improved environment.
Closed-cell spray insulation for interior applications
By letting Tillotson Enterprises install a closed-cell spray foam insulation instead of cellulose, you’ll get a seamless air barrier that eliminates air leakage in the building envelope. This, in turn will allow the use of smaller HVAC equipment, reduce sound transmission, and help prevent outdoor air infiltration and the penetration of dust, pollen and other allergens.
Higher energy efficiency – Exceptional air sealing and R-values result in heating and cooling cost savings. Drafts are virtually eliminated and a more constant and comfortable indoor environment and temperature is maintained.
Better moisture and condensation control – Closed-cell spray foam offers superior performance in resisting moisture transmission and condensation.
Increases structural strength – Research has shown 2x4 stud walls with closed-cell spray foam can support significantly greater loads than other insulation materials.
Improved indoor air quality – Helps prevent the introduction of dust, pollen and other allergens into the living environment. An excellent choice for people with allergy problems.
Helps control insects and rodents – Closed-cell foam helps control insects and rodents from entering the building because it acts as a continuous and seamless building envelope barrier.
Can be used in wide range of applications – Can be used in both wood and metal framed structures, including walls, floors, ceilings, under roof decks, on attic floors, crawl spaces, basements and foundations.
Spray foam for exterior roofing
During warmer summer months, temperatures can reach 170 degrees F on a low-slope black asphalt roof, and they can drop to -20° degrees F during the winter. Much of the heat generated by absorbing the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation transfers to the building interior, and can have significant adverse effects on energy consumption.
Among the benefits of spray foam as a roofing material is that it provides vastly superior insulation to many roofing systems. As is discussed more fully in our Roof System Comparison, spray foam roofs are designed to help reflect the sun’s energy and provide an R-factor of 6.50 for every inch of material. That means spray foam can provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of roofing insulation. Spray foam roofs produce energy savings of 30% or greater when compared to the alternative roofing systems. The cost of the roof can be easily recovered in just a few years, simply through energy savings.
