Air passes through every hole, fissure and crevice in a home. Around 33% of air infiltration passes through ceiling, floors and walls. It is only by installing a high performance insulation system that you can reach optimal building performance. SWIS can supply you with that system.
An effective foam insulation solution can help homeowners get the most out of their investment.
By sealing a building envelope, you can prevent conditioned interior air escaping and unconditioned exterior air taking its place. This is a leading factor in unnecessarily high energy bills. Central heating and air conditioning systems are in operation all the time; by avoiding extreme temperature variations, you can reduce the burden placed on your heating and cooling systems, resulting in lower energy bills.
The key to achieving greater energy efficiency lies in creating an effective air seal throughout a structure. Wall insulation has a significant effect, but there are various other factors that can have adverse effects on your home energy efficiency.
Doors and Windows
Water and moisture retained within the structural envelope is easily the biggest threat to durability for residential buildings. Not only do these effects damage building durability, moisture present in your home can also create the ideal conditions for the development of mold, which can dramatically impact the health of a building’s occupants.
Ceilings, Outer Walls Floors and Crawlspaces
When left unsealed, these result in about a third of the average home’s air leakage. Air infiltration can cause as much as 40% of a structure’s energy loss. Foam insulation is an optimal way of sealing your structure to increase comfort and provide greater energy efficiency.
What are the benefits of spray foam?
The benefits of an environmentally friendly home are far reaching. Both builders and occupants can enjoy greater comfort, while an active role in reducing greenhouse gases helps protect the environment. A properly sealed home greatly reduces both carbon emissions and the amount of oil consumed to produce electricity, resulting in a more green friendly structure.
Spray polyurethane foam insulation offers unparalleled waterproofing and air sealing properties, making it a potential key component in a home durability management system. Its high R-value per inch and valuable performance characteristics can contribute to high levels of energy efficiency for a structure.
Sustainable structures offer a number of benefits to both the owners and the occupants. An environmentally friendly building lets you play an active part in reducing greenhouse gases, and counteracting global warming.

Spray Polyurethane Roofing:
● Lowers your energy costs more than alternative insulation systems
● Provides protection against hail damage and wind uplift
● Creates a seamless monolithic roof system with effective waterproofing
● Provides the highest R-values per inch
Spray foam insulation will reduce your annual energy costs. The air-tight seal helps keep conditioned air inside the structure to reduce heat loss. As a result, you’ll spend less on heating in winter and make overall savings. An insulated home provides a more attractive choice for buyers, if you plan on selling in the future. Savings start as soon as the insulation is applied.
Protective Speciality Coatings
An application of an elastomeric protective lining to a surface can reduce UV degradation. The solution is effective on surfaces in food processing plants, storage containers, and various other containment units.
Racking strength and wall shear can be strengthened by up to three times when closed-cell foam is used, as opposed to more conventional materials in framed walls.
