Jacksonville, Florida (PressExposure) June 26, 2009 -- We wondered what the number ONE question was about SoyThane Spray in Place Urethane Foam. Tom Hay Technical Advisor for SprayMax Industrial Coatings Inc was quick to answer.
Tom said âHow much money will it save me?â Letâs face facts all insulation is applied to do two things, 1. Save you money. 2. Make you and your family more comfortable. Insulation is not a full wall TV screen with surround sound speakers, it is something you pay for and rarely if any get to see or show off. SoyThane is now prepared to let you figure out very simply how much you can save.
To accomplish this we will use an age old example. A person in the household wants to turn the AC to 72 Degrees from 74 degrees, they want to be cooler. Another person in the house wants to turn the AC up to 76 degrees to save money on the electric bill. The California Energy Commission did a study that showed you can save about 3% of your cooling costs for every degree above 72 degrees. That simple 4 degree swing equals 12% in savings, Now to the other side of the equator, Heat. One person wants the thermostat set at 78 degrees to be warm. Another household member wants it set at 72 degrees to save money. When contacting the American Council for an Energy-efficient economy the numbers all but came back the same, 3% for every degree on the thermostat or in this case an 18% saving.
Tom continued to say â12%,- 18%, those sound like big numbers, especially over but a few degrees. This is where the fun begins. Letâs go up to your vented attic. The vents allow heat to come in the attic during the summer and cold to come in during the winter. You have a fibrous insulation on the floor of the attic. Itâs saving you a fortune (the guy that sold the product said it would). I will save my comments on fibrous insulation for another Press Release. Most times your AC and Heat are pushed through duct work in your attic space with an R-4 fibrous insulation surrounded by an aluminum foil type covering. Have you ever been in your attic in the summer? There is a good chance it is 200 degrees upward. In the winter time it will be the coldest place in the house, next to maybe your basement.
This is where the new Do It Yourself MaxiFoam comes in. SprayMax has developed a 70% closed cell .6 pound density to help create an envelope in your attic closing off all vents. This Pre Cart ridged material sprays out of the SprayMax inexpensive FastKick Spray Gun/Proportioner. The MaxiFoam expands 110 times its volume and creates an airtight seal setting up instantly. When sprayed in between your attic trusses and closing off your attic vents you now have your AC and Heat traveling through duct work at ambient temperature. This means simply instead of your AC traveling through a 200 Plus degree room it is traveling through an 80 degree room, a savings of 120 degrees. You were arguing over 4 degrees before but ignoring 120 degrees where both parties could have comfort and savings.
As a test we sprayed the underside of a metal building roof on SprayMax Property. Using an infra red thermometer we got a reading of 160 degrees on the side of the metal at 10:00 AM. We then entered the crawl space and took a reading of the underside of the MaxiFoam, 75 degrees.
MaxiFoam require no electricity to apply it and anyone with good eye arm co ordination can be spraying flawless foam right from the first cartridge.
I have over 40 yearâs practical experience in Urethane Foam insulation. The new MaxiFoam out performs anything I have seen in the market place to date MaxiFoam also qualifies for the Government stimulus plan with a return of 30% up to $1,500.00â
