Seamless Spray Insulation Systems

Insulation is the most critical component of building performance. Unseen, it surrounds us every day affecting our comfort, savings, structural durability and health. Our seamless insulation system combines the performance of our eco-friendly water blown spray foam with the unmatched bio-content and low embodied energy of natural cellulose insulation. These natural, recycled, and renewable products allow us to deliver high performance without sacrificing environmental friendliness. Our spray-applied systems create a seamless and airtight seal in every cavity regardless of complex framing and penetrations, this translates to a building that is quieter, healthier, more durable, comfortable and energy-efficient. Best of all, the reduced energy bills will pay for these benefits over and over, while reducing your building's impact on the environment. And since there are no moving parts, the system will last a lifetime. Our hybrid insulation system is the best way to save money and reduce your building's environmental footprint.

Seamless Hybrid Insulation System

 





Why EnergySeal Is Better

It's simple: no other insulation compares to our seamless, spray applied, eco-friendly hybrid insulation system. Two decades of lab and field-testing has led us to the best combination of products to cost-effectively achieve the highest level of building performance and environmental sustainability. EnergySeal's highly trained crews and attention to detail allow for our insulation systems to succeed under conditions that others fail. All of our systems maintain consistent Real World R-Value that is unaffected by external forces like temperature and wind. Our hybrid system is proven to deliver reliable performance down to -40°F. In contrast, fiberglass can let you down right when performance matters most, losing up to 50% of its insulating capacity to convection and air movement when the temperature dips below freezing. By eliminating convection currents and air leakage, our systems eliminate internal condensation, moisture, and mold in wall and ceiling cavities. Protect your building investment and avoid the severe liability of inexperienced insulation firms by choosing the experts at EnergySeal. 


Why use EnergySeal's breathable and flexible spraycore versus closed cell rigid sprayfoams in cathedral roof cavities?

We have been applying urethane technologies for over twenty years and we offer both breathable cavity foams and rigid structural foam. Over the last two decades we have seen these technologies misused in the building industry over and over. Some of the most horrendous structural damage we have witnessed is from the improper application of "closed-cell sprayfoams". Similar to foamcore panels, rigid foams encapsulate the underside of roof sheathings making it impossible to detect potential roofing flaws that can occur during the construction process. In an extreme climate undetected leaks can lead to large scale structural damage. A even a minor roof defect can turn into a serious problem if it goes unnoticed for years. Gravity and capillary action can spread moisture throughout the roof system, eventually leading to dry rot and severe structural damage.


Problems with loose-fill fiberglass:

Loose-fill fiberglass attic insulation loses half of its R-value below freezing due to air movement within the product. The BIBS or blow in blanket system relies on loose-fill fiberglass with added adhesive to resist settling and internal cavity air movement. In ideal conditions, such as a laboratory, the BIBS system is impressive. But in the real world, this dense packed fiber systems is unable to perform as marketed. To achieve the R-values claimed and to resist settling, loose-fill fiberglass must be dense packed tightly. The normal blown densities for loose-fill fiberglass are approximately .75 lbs per cubic foot. The BIBS system relies on densities over 2.5 lbs per cubic foot to achieve the R-values claimed. When loose-fill fiberglass is packed at the density required for it to resist air movement it is difficult to prevent the bellying of the plastic or netting that is holding the material in the roof or wall cavity. This makes hanging drywall difficult. These super densities are intensely installer dependent and are not typically achieved. Lower than recommended densities in the BIBS system will not resist air movement or internal convective loops. Inadequate cavity densities due to operator error and the resultant building performance failures have been documented extensively throughout Valley County and the Intermountain West.


Problems with loose-fill cellulose:

In a cathedral ceiling, cellulose fibers must be dense packed tightly exceeding 3 pounds per cubic foot to resist settling. This is an extremely operator reliant process that is difficult to achieve consistently. In practice, it is very difficult to achieve proper installed densities without bellying the netting, especially with 24 inch on center rafter spacing. The steeper the pitch the higher the risk of settling at the ridge line. There is virtually zero surface adhesion of the cellulose to framing or substrate. This is a risky design that offers no consistent assurance of success.


Problems with FoamCore Panels or Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs):

Closed cell polystyrene is sandwiched between OSB sheathing creating a structural diaphragm. Potential roof leaks due to roof damage or wear and tear are virtually undetectable except between the seams of the panels. Roof leaks can damage or soften the OSB waferboard over time. The closed cell polystyrene will block the exterior surface water leak from detection at the interior ceiling line. Long term undetected structural damage is possible. This is a major concern and potential liability in regards to snow country extreme climate roof loads.
