Homesulate™ foam insulation was developed by a leading chemical company in 1966 for use as a fire resistant thermal and acoustical insulation product to be utilized in commercial and residential structures. In 1975, Homesulate™ foam products and their characteristics were expanded and refined. The Department of Energy chose Homesulate™ spray foam as one of three products from a total of 7,000 to assist in further development. After three years of intense research and testing, Homesulate™ wall foam greatly surpassed all of the D.O.E. expectations, and was made available for commerce.
Enertek uses Homesulate spray foam for government applications and does residential and commercial jobs also. Our experience with spray foam insulatioon is unsurpassed and Enertek guarantees all its work. A little about our spray foam; Spray Foam Insulation Saves You Money and Pays for Itself, residential spray foam insulation saves you money on energy costs and lowers utility bills. Spray Polyurethane Foam is used to seal the entire “building envelope” of your home to prevent air and moisture infiltration. The US Department of Energy (DOE) studies show that 40% of your home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration. This air infiltrates the home in the form of drafts through leaky wall, windows and door.
High R-Value Closed Cell Polyurethane spray foam insulation has an aged R-value of approximately 6.0 per 1 inch thickness (depending on the particular formulation and application, higher values have been achieved), enabling it to provide more thermal resistance with less material than any other type of commercial insulation material. 1 inch of closed cell spray foam is great for metal building insulation. SPF systems are frequently used to insulate and protect a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
Many homeowners are experiencing savings of 30% or greater while utilizing spray foam compared to the alternative roofing and insulation systems. In some areas the cost of a polyurethane spray foam roof or insulation system can often be recovered in less than 5.5 years, simply through utility savings alone. --snip--
