Spray Foam Insulation Kits

By Edited Sep 24, 2016 0 0

People, today, want to save on the burgeoning costs of energy and so are being forced to look for spray foam insulation kits as a way out.

Such kits are able to provide better insulation and in this way can help affect major savings in terms of cost of energy consumed and so is a good option that everyone should consider using for their homes.

In order to pick the right spray foam insulation kits, you must do a few things. First of all, you need to measure the square footage that you wish to cover with the spray foam.

Next, you have to decide on the amount of thickness of the foam spray. In a majority of instances, people chose to use maximum closed cell foam, but in doing so, end up spending a lot of money.

It is therefore better to use an inch or maximum two inches of closed cell spray foam which is sufficient to seal out all moisture and air.

Even better, why not make use of fiberglass that will not allow any air to leak out? In any case, you need to decide on the number of inches of thickness you need and then note down this figure.

Next, take the figures arrived at in regard to square footage and then multiply that number by the number of inches required which will give you the total amount of board required.

Once this is done, you will then need to calculate how many spray foam insulation kits will be needed.

Having done this, you will need to take the amount of board feet requires and divide this by six hundred, because six hundred is the usual kit size that you will find in the market.

Once you get the figure you can then choose the numbers of kits required to complete your home insulation.

You must also ensure using the correct amount of spray foam as this will help you affect cost savings. If you try and skimp and choose to use two hundred board foot kits you instead of the six hundred board foot kits you will end up purchasing about two or three additional two hundred board foot kits and in this way overspend.

In addition, you must also ensure purchasing e-84 class 1 foam for the project, which is ideally suited for those who are doing a home insulation project.

Finally, do not subtract area of the doors and windows and instead simply round up the figures so that you get the calculations of the area correct. The only exception to this rule is when your wall is mostly covered by a window.
