Superior Protection & Comfort with USA Premium Foam® Insulation
The USA Premium Foam® Insulation used at USA Insulation is superior to any other insulation product on the market. Learn more about the benefits of USA Premium Foam® Insulation. One of the top reasons why USA Premium Foam® is the best insulation product for homes and businesses is our R-Value.
What Is R-Value?
R-Value is the rating system used to grade insulation products or a material’s insulating properties. “R” stands for “resistance.” This means the resistance the product has against temperature conduction. When a product or home has a high R-value, this means it is well insulated.
USA Premium Foam® Has the Highest R-Value in Its Class
USA Premium Foam® Insulation has an R-value of 5.1 per inch. That constitutes the highest R-value of any Retrofit stud wall application. We also use Johns Manville insulation products for insulation installations in attics.
Our product’s R-value is higher than:
- Rigid panels
- Other spray foam insulation
- Blown-in insulation
Is My Home’s R-Value High Enough?
Many homes in the United States don’t have proper insulation. The United States Department of Energy warns homeowners that just 1 in 5 homes constructed prior to 1980 are sufficiently insulated. This means that approximately 80% of homes built before this time are in need of better insulation. Some homes don’t have insulation at all! While homes constructed today are required to meet R-value standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy, this requirement was not included in building codes prior to the mid-1970s. Better insulation can keep you comfortable and save you a lot of money in energy costs.
