It's the only retrofit non-expanding foam that fills every nook and cranny in your walls and air seals while it insulates. Air Krete cementitious foam is installed from the exterior of your home so there is minimal inconvenience to you. It has a shaving cream consistency so as it's pumped into your wall it flows around receptacles, wires, pipes and other obstructions to fill the cavity. It does not settle, shrink or lose R-value over time. It stops air infiltration, as does every foam. This makes the biggest difference because without drafts your home will fell more comfortable.
Air Krete is the only 100% fireproof residential insulation. It is 100% non-toxic and environmentally safe. It does not contain carcinogenic fibers, asbestos, fiberglass, formaldehyde or chlorinated fluorocarbons. Air Krete is odor free and non-corrosive. Due to its cementitious nature it is 100% insect, rodent and mold resistant. Air Krete is a 100% green product. In fact, for their model 21st century green building the Audubon Society chose Air Krete to insulate their corporate headquarters in New York City.
Air Krete has been on the market since 1983. It is roughly the consistency of shaving cream when it is put in place, then it quickly becomes more rigid. It is typically installed in an existing wall by injecting it into holes drilled in the building exterior. Unlike other synthetic foam products, Air Krete is a cementitious material. This means that it is more closely related to concrete than to plastic. As a result it is almost completely odor free and contains no formaldehyde or any other known toxic substances. Air Krete must be installed by licensed applicators.
Air Krete is 100% non-toxic, free of CFC's and formaldehyde, free of asbestos and all other carcinogenic fibers. It is odor-free, has a high R-value, has no loss of R-value over time (non-shrink, non-settling), fireproof, with no by-products of combustion.
Air Krete cementitious foam is a magnesium-based product that is derived from seawater. Foam is the most effective product for retrofitting into existing walls because of its consistency. Foam will work its way around any obstacle, providing a near-100 percent wall fill (cellulose, for example, may not fill completely around bundles of wires or pipe runs and leave random voids). Unlike bottled foam insulation used to seal small gaps around pipes and wiring, Air Krete does not shrink or expand. In new construction, Air Krete can be installed after drywall is hung, but taping and texturing drywall joints should be completed after the foam has completely dried (usually about 48 hours). Cementitious foam is the most benign in regards to indoor air quality; when it is being applied into a wall there is no dust. It sounds like the perfect insulation. With an insulating value of 3.9 per inch, it would exceed R-21 in a 2x6 wall.
It completely seals the cavity preventing air leaks. It doesn't shrink. It won't burn or attract pests. It's non-toxic and excellent for people who are sensitive to chemicals.
All foam products stops drafts and has excellent R-values. This means you'll experience greater comfort control and see substantial heating and cooling cost savings. Spray foam's energy qualities are what make it most desirable but you'll also notice decreased outside noise and much less dust in your home.
Excellent for use where there is air leakage, such as:
Dry cellulose is used in retrofitting old homes by blowing the cellulose into holes drilled into the tops of the walls. It can also be blown into a new wall construction by using temporary retainers or netting that is clamped in place then removed once the cellulose has reached the appropriate density. This form of application does settle as much as 20% but the stated R-value of the cellulose is accurate after settling occurs. In addition, a dense-pack option can be used to reduce settling and further minimize air gaps. Dense-pack places pressure on the cavity, and should be done by an experienced installer.
Isn’t new insulation really expensive?
Not if you know how to insulate properly...
It costs money to remodel, maintain and improve your home. The same applies to insulating your house. By delaying insulation improvements you can end up paying more money each month to heat and cool your home. More troubling is each time utility rates rise you’ll be losing even more money for less and less comfort.
New home insulation is an investment. It increases the value of your home and provides comfort to you family. Research the benefits for yourself by clicking here.
