SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

 

Save Money!

Spray Foam is a great investment in your financial future. While you spend lots of money on your heating bills now, Spray Foam will help you save in the future. Up to 50% savings compared with traditional insulation. Higher savings are achieved in many retrofit situations. Significantly improve the BER (Building Energy Rating) of your home.

 

Save the planet, too!

When you save 50% on energy, you cut your C02 emissions by 50%. Do the right thing with Spray Foam, Save money and the planet too!
Insulation foam is the most effective way to battle global warming.

 

 

Enjoy a quiet home!
Sound travels easily through most wall assemblies because they are not perfectly airtight. Air-tightness is difficult to achieve unless you install an Eizero spray foam insulation system. Spray Foam is easily applied perfectly in a variety of wall designs, providing excellent ratings.

 

IAQ- Indoor Air Quality
From mould growth to mildew, from allergies to the sick building syndrome, Spray Foam helps by eliminating drafts and controlling air leakage and condensation. Even damage from driving rain may be sharply reduced.

CAVITY WALL INSULATION

22mm holes are bored into the external walls

 

From the 1950’s onwards most dwellings were of cavity wall construction. This means there is an inner and an outer wall with a cavity in between. This type of dwelling is suitable for cavity wall insulation.
We are National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) approved to install the Warmfill Silver Bonded Bead product. Cavity Wall Insulation with Silver Bonded Bead is an expanded Polystyrene Bead which is injected into existing or newly built cavity walls with a bonding agent.

 

Adhesive are pumped under pressure

 

 

 

 

 

Silver Bead along with an adhesive are pumped under pressure into the cavity. 22mm holes are bored into the external walls of the building, they can also be drilled internally if required this method is commonly carried out on new builds. The walls are warmer after insulation which in most cases results in the elimination of condensation. Government figures state that for the majority of houses 35% of heat is lost through the walls. It is estimated that 66% of this can be saved by insulating the walls. This is an overall saving of 25%

 

ATTIC INSULATION

 

Fibreglass insulation is rolled into the attic space between & across the joists, difficult to reach areas can be insulated with blown mineral wool.

Cold water pipes and cold water tanks are lagged and sealed.

 

Insulated walkways are installed for safe access from your attic hatch to your water tanks. 300mm fibreglass insulation is the required amount to be installed in your attic area to be eligible for the grant

 

 

 

 

As part of our attic insulation service we will install tank jackets on your water storage tanks, insulate all cold water pipes in your attic area. If you have an attic pull down stairs we can provide an insulated hood that will greatly reduce heat loss in this area.

 

AIRTIGHTNESS

 

Air leakage is a major cause of energy loss, typically around 20% in older houses, from space heating. In modern houses, where heat loss is less through other means, ventilation counts for a higher proportion - estimated at between 35 - 40%.

 

 

Older houses tend to be more airtight than more modern houses - this might be because of the less precise nature of modern workmanship and materials assembly.

 

 

 

 

Air leakage is the uncontrolled movement of air in to and out of a building which is not for the specific and planned purpose of exhausting stale air or bringing in fresh air.

 

 

ATTIC FLOORING
