Interview With FoamE
Meet Our Spunky Injection Foam Insulation Spokesperson!
FoamE burst on the scene in the spring of 2011 with a starring role in USA Insulation's TV commercial, "High Winter Bills." He has since gone on to star in numerous USA Insulation TV commercials, as well as brochures, newspapers, and mailers. We caught up with FoamE and asked him to take time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions.

FoamE, why did you start working for USA Insulation?
The company wanted someone on the "inside" to talk about their great injection foam insulation product. Naturally, since I am injected into the inside of walls, I was the obvious choice.
How did you get the name “FoamE?”
Well, the "Foam" refers to USA Insulation's superior product that goes into insulating your walls. It is the consistency of foam until it hardens to form a solid, protective barrier against air leaking out of your home or getting inside your house from the outdoors. The "E" refers to the fact that I am environmentally friendly. I am completely non-toxic, won't pollute the air of your home, and I also prevent mold, mildew, and bacteria from forming in your home.
Q: What do people like most about you?
I save them a lot of money on their energy bills! That’s because as injection foam insulation, I have a 35% higher R-value than other types of insulation. In other words, I have superior insulating properties.
Q: Does it help to be amorphic?
Q: You can change shapes?
Yeah! You don’t find Rockwool or cellulose or other types of insulation squeezing into tight spaces like I can. I easily get behind wires and pipes, between the wall and electrical outlets-leaving no space unfilled. So in the summertime, I do a better job of keeping the hot air outside and the cool air inside. And in winter, I keep the cold air out and the warm air in.
Q: Describe what you do.
It’s simple. I am injected into the walls of a home from outside. I go between the exterior surface of the home and the inside drywall. I fill up the area between every stud. It goes real quickly. Then I harden into a solid insulating material that won’t deteriorate or settle over time like other types of insulation.
Q: What kind of exterior surfaces can you go into?
Just about any type of home building material. Vinyl siding, aluminum siding, wood, brick, stucco-you name it.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
I make people more comfortable so they can live healthier, happier lives. No more fans or comforters for them! No more working overtime for the furnace or air conditioner motors. And I help keep room temperatures even and balanced throughout the house. What could be a better gig?
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be?
Hmmm, let me think...oh yeah! ET! He had that line, “Phone home.” Well, I like to say, “Foam home!” We’d have a lot to talk about, obviously.
Q: When you're not working, what do you do for fun?
I never stop working. I’m insulating homes day and night, all year round. That, to me, is the most fun anyone can have! I also like to start shaving cream fights.
