Why Insulate a Building?

The main purpose of insulation is to separate two different temperatures. When we use insulation materials in buildings, the main goal is to keep the air generated in the building warm during the winter to save energy. Even in the summer, good insulation material can ensure that warm air does not get into the building, and the cold air produced stays inside. Regardless of why we insulate, the type of insulation and the quality of the insulation material determine the profitability of our goal. Good insulation material with good insulation quality (R-U-k values) is required to achieve good results. The better the insulation quality, the better the profitability.

Spray Foam Insulation Construction Principles

Practice in building science means considering how all components interact with each other (systems approach), including foundation, walls, roof, floor, doors, windows, insulation and mechanical systems. 

Spray foam engineering is critical to optimising building performance and user comfort while avoiding problems for the lifetime of commercial buildings.

The building rules include: 

  • Creation of a continuous air barrier and connection to adequate mechanical ventilation 
  • Sufficient heat resistance 
  • Effective moisture management to avoid problems with building durability 
  • Improving air quality in passenger rooms 
  • The use of appropriate heating and air conditioning systems to optimise energy consumption

The Science of Spray Foam Insulation

Construction scientists highlight the importance of air barriers, such as icynene spray foam, in the planning and construction of commercial buildings. This is partly due to the fact that many buildings that have been built without an air barrier in recent decades have already suffered significant damage from moisture and mould due to condensation, which is often caused by air leakage. Studies have shown that thermal insulation without an air barrier does not provide optimal energy efficiency for the building and user comfort. For this reason, air barriers are an important part of industry regulations and standards, such as ASHRAE 90.1 and the International Energy Saving Code for Energy Efficiency in Commerce, and requirements for airtightness testing in commercial buildings.
