What benefit can polyurethane foam retrofitting provide for an existing home?

Most existing residential housing throughout the world are insulated in the traditional manner with a air-use insulator (fiberglass, cellulose). They are expected to insulate our homes and buildings based on the assumption of dead air and only the principles of advection and convection (R-factor). A flaw with this system is that there are so many forces working against the envelope of the building and they are much more diverse and powerful than traditional air use insulators are able to handle. For example, consider the R-30 loose fill used commonly in attics; it only takes just a few hours for the radiant heat from the attic to build to 140 degrees and go completely through the R-30.  This starts pushing the temperature up in your home and increases your power bill, especially if your HVAC system and ducts are housed in the attic. When the sun sets and your house should be cooling off, air-use insulation is holding the heat in and not allowing the house to cool off as quickly as it otherwise would.

Winter time is when traditional insulation really becomes a negative in the energy efficiency plan. The air in the structure is heated the home becomes like a hot air balloon, even though it can not lift off the ground, all the same physics of lift are present. When the air is heated; it naturally rises and then passes through the batt insulation in the attic. When this occurs it takes the temperature and moisture that have developed in the living envelope and rises upward to the attic. Due to the air mass expanding (static pressure) in the summer months, vents are necessary in the attic to lower the pressure outside rather than pushing it into the living space. The vents that are so necessary to allow the pressure, temperature, and moisture out which, you have also just paid to have brought into your home, to escape. When air escapes the roof vents, replacement air must come in, bringing in cold air to be re-heated (Air Loss/Air Gain).

Saving Money by Retrofitting

When retro fitting an existing residence you should first consider where your money will be best spent. As much as 50% of the energy loss in a home is in the roof area. Crawl space areas consume up to 30% of a house’s energy and the walls, windows and doors the remainder. By using spray-in closed cell polyurethane foam along the roof deck of the structure you will stop all the radiant energy from entering the structure. By stopping the radiant energy there will be no expanding air mass. With no expanding air mass there is no need for vents. Doing away with the vents, stops the heat loss due to rising hot air during the winter.

The most important area and therefore the one that should be the first sprayed, because it is the largest energy consumer of the envelope, is the roof area. The second area should be the floor or crawl space. We do not advise trying to re-insulate walls because the benefit on an 18% loss would be cost prohibitive and therefore, not practical.

We cool and heat the air inside structures because we do not want the outdoor environment inside our homes. Heating and cooling the building envelope is in direct opposition to the most powerful force on earth, the atmosphere. The prime example of this is the old refrigerators of the past that frosted up and had to be defrosted on a regular basis. Due to the moisture (in the form of a gas) went through the polyethylene wrapped fiberglass (4”) we were quite aware it was an invisible force (vapor drive) that was not only making the freezer frost over, but also dramatically reduced the efficiency of the entire unit. During the early sixties, we began putting 1½ inches of closed cell polyurethane foam in refrigerators and they not only became more efficient, but frost free as well. This force goes back and forth between hot and cold seasons not only infiltrating your walls and attic with moisture, but mold colonies as well.
