Spray Foam Insulation

Spray Foam Insulation

Why Using Spray Foam Insulation is Environmentally Friendly Way to Insulate Your Home or Building.

Spray foam insulation installed by EcoFoam OKC delivers high-performance solutions for efficient building envelopes, thermal comfort and a healthy living environment – all of which are integral components of green building and design.

There are many important factors to consider when choosing an insulation product. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live in. Fuel savings from insulation can vary per household, based upon the climate, the type and size of your structure, the amount of insulation already installed, energy use patterns and family/occupant size.

Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation:

  • Energy efficient homes and buildings: Heating and cooling costs can be reduced by as much as 50 percent. Additional Tax Credits may be available for installing spray foam insulation.
  • Total reduction of heating and air conditioning tonnage by as much as 40 percent without the loss of efficiency or comfort.
  • Draft-free homes and buildings: Seal cracks, joints, crawl spaces, ceilings, wall, and attics will prevent the movement of air through the home or building.
  • Quiet homes and buildings: The open cells and the semi-rigid polyurethane mass absorb and reduce the transmission of sound.
  • Dust-free homes and buildings: Structures using spray in foam insulation show remarkable reduction of dust accumulation
  • Better air quality: Overall reduction of symptoms caused by allergies.
  • Stable rigid or simi-rigid foam insulation that will not degrade over time.
  • Comfort and peace of mind

Spray Foam Insulation

Commercial Spray Foam Insulation Services for:

  • Hospitals
  • Colleges
  • Airports
  • Arenas
  • Restaurants
  • Warehouses
  • Laboratories
  • Hotels/Motels
  • Sleep Centers
  • Business Centers

Choosing Spray Foam Insulation will save your business, school, church, or organization a substantial amount of money as well as being the best choice for our environment.

Spray polyurethane foam will eliminate heat transfer unlike standard insulation which acts as a filter.

Commercial buildings that have been insulated by Premiere Spray Foam Insulation typically have 50%-70% savings over standard insulation.


Commercial Wall Insulation

Spray foam insulation could be the best insulation system yet invented.

  • On the inside of the wall panel of a building it has an extremely high R value, it has been shown to dramatically increase the racking strength in steel and timber frame buildings, in some instances has been specified to prevent wind uplift in commercial roofing systems.
  • On the outside of the building it can be used as a combined vapor and air barrier system. It can also be used below grade for the insulation of basements and foundation.
  • It does not emit VOCs or hydrocarbons and has a proven track record over the last 20 years.

Residential Spray Foam Insulation Services for:

  • New Construction
  • Remodel
  • Additions
  • Bonus Rooms
  • Attics (Vented or Unvented)
  • Crawlspaces

As shown through an energy audit, a large percentage of heat escapes through the attic and the walls of a home. However, a new approach to insulation can make a big difference.

In order to build a better thermal envelope, we need to look at the second law of thermodynamics. This law states that heat flows in one direction, from a warm space to a cold one. For example, warm air inside a home will flow to the cooler air outside during winter months.

Fiberglass batt insulation helps prevent this from happening, but there’s a better method for preventing heat loss, one that is easy to install and is environmentally friendly.

The best practice for insulating is to use spray foam insulation to fill the spaces between the framing studs in the walls and attic. It expands to about 100 times its original volume, so it perfectly fills in gaps unlike standard fiberglass insulation. Over time, as the house expands and contracts, so will the foam insulation. This eliminates cracks and spaces for conditioned air to escape.

By using a “Best Practice” application like spray foam insulation in walls and attics, you can create a better air-tight envelope. This gives an advantage over traditional insulation in both efficiency, comfort and return on investment.

Each year in the United States nearly $13 billion worth of energy in the form of heated or cooled air escapes through holes and cracks in residential buildings according to, History Channel’s Modern Marvels. The documentary calls spray foam insulation the secret weapon on the war against energy consumption.

Metal Building Spray Foam Insulation Services for:

  • Warehouses
  • Military Buildings
  • Garages or Shops
  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Grocery/Department Stores
  • Any building needing climate control

Metal buildings are becoming more and more prevalent these days. They are being manufactured for a variety of purposes: garages, RV shelters, workshops, warehouses, gymnasiums, stores, and even homes.

Insulation for metal buildings is extremely crucial because the metal takes on the outside ambient temperature making it susceptible to condensation. This can lead to numerous issues such as corrosion and mold growth.

Having the right insulation is also important when it comes to controlling temperature, sound transmission, dust and conserving energy.

Energy Efficient Buildings – The Role of Air Infiltration

One of the most significant aspects of the new approach is a push to reduce unwanted air and moisture intrusion into structures by measurably improving the building envelope. According the U.S. Department of Energy, air infiltration accounts for a loss of 30 percent or more of heating and cooling costs. Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation, more than any other insulating and air-sealing product, successfully addresses the three main challenges to improving the building envelope

These challenges include:

  • Uncontrolled air movement through the building’s shell
  • Moisture management
  • Indoor air quality

Specifically, SPF is being used by the DoD in multiple applications both domestically and in overseas operations to increase insulation values in buildings, reduce air and moisture infiltration, improve indoor air quality, and create healthy and more energy-efficient structures for our service members.
