IOWA FOAM INSULATORS
Iowa Foam Insulators is a spray foam company. Our foam insulation is great for the environment and even better for the consumer. Iowa Foam Insulators can provide an environmentally friendly insulation that uses soybeans — a renewable resource — yet can save the end user up to 50% on their heating and cooling cost over standard fiberglass insulation.
Iowa Foam Insulation’s goal is to stop household air infiltration by expanding foam to fill cracks and gaps where the more standard insulation is ineffective. The foam insulation will form a weather-resistant, airtight bond that seals drafts and also boosts the efficiency of air conditioners and furnaces. To put it simply, foam insulation is here to give you a more comfortable, energy-efficient home.
This company offers residential, commercial, and agricultural foam insulation sales and installation. We do it all from big too small.
WHY INSULATE WITH FOAM INSULATION?+
Wondering why you should use foam insulation? First consider the rising energy costs and uncertainty in supplies. Taking advantage of the insulating power of foam insulation in your home can not only save you money, it can also easily be accomplished with the most up-to-date Spray Foam Insulation. We are sure that you already know how well foam insulates, just think about some of the everyday foam products we use!
THE FOAM COFFEE CUP+
Just 1/8" of Foam With An R-value Of Less Than One.
Think about when you’re at your favorite fast food restaurant or the local convenience store and you buy a cup of coffee. When you are handed the coffee or go to pour the piping hot coffee into the foam cup, you know you won’t burn your hand. The foam cup will simply just be warm to the touch! And, if the foam was just a little bit thicker, you probably would not even be able to feel if the coffee was hot or cold. Just 1/8" of foam was a pretty effective insulator, don’t you agree?
THE FOAM PICNIC CHEST+
Just 1/2" of Foam With An R-value Of Only About Two.
Here is an example of the insulating power of foam and how important air sealing an area is when you want to heat or cool it. Think about a foam picnic chest, because you’ll be able to learn a lot about foam insulation in your home thanks to this example. You buy one for an affordable price, relying on it to keep your drinks cold throughout the weekend. You throw the drinks and a bag of ice in it on Saturday morning, you ensure the lid is put on tight, and you’ll likely still have ice left that Sunday evening. This is the insulating power of about a half inch of foam with a relatively low R-value of only about an R-2.
REFRIGERATORS AND FREEZERS+
Just 2" of Foam With An R-value Of 13.
Spray foam insulation has been used over the last 50 years. If you look at your freezer and refrigerator walls, they are only an average of 2 inches thick. It is not fiberglass; it is high density foam insulation. The 2 inches of high-density foam is only R-13. A freezer with three-inch thick walls is only R-20. With R-20 you have stopped almost all of the thermal conduction of temperature (your hand doesn't feel cold when you touch the refrigerator, not to mention there is no air or humidity loss. You lose energy only by opening and closing the doors and exchanging the products inside, thus allowing cold air to escape or warm air to enter the environment.
