Home/Roof Insulation

Roof insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to make your home more energy-efficient.

Why Spray Roof Insulation?

Choosing the right home roof insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to make your home more energy-efficient. Icynene is the world leader in spray foam products having developed the first 100% water-blown spray foam. We also provide roof insulation primarily in manchester.

When applied between rafters, it seals the home creating an airtight warm roof structure, expanding 100x its sprayed depth to fill every corner of a buildings envelope. Icynene open-cell water-blown foam is fully breathable at 0.0049lsm2 allowing all timbers to breathe and helps prevent condensation.

In laboratory conditions, the diffusion of moisture through the gypsum board was measured by natural diffusion. When a small hole is made in the wall, the amount of moisture that passes through it is multiplied by almost 100! Therefore, it is essential to limit air leaks in buildings. Studies by the Canadian Government have shown that the consumption of energy (and thus, heating) is directly related to the airtightness of a building.

Effective Home Roof Insulation

A balanced construction system is like a chain of elements (links) assembled to optimise energy consumption. If one of these elements is defective, then it can be enough to break the balance. For instance, poor airtightness may cancel out the benefits of quality home insulation and oversized heating equipment will not necessarily help create a more efficient or 'better' building system.

Effective home insulation is often overlooked, even in new build properties, and as a result, cold draughts push up through gaps in the floorboards,, around skirting boards and any holes made for central heating pipes or electrics, causing higher heating bills, uncomfortable draughts and can also be responsible for excessive noise penetrating the property.

What are the key benefits of Spray Foam Insulation?

Cost saving

Due to the nature of Icynene products, the foam, once applied, creates an air seal within a property, helping to prevent heat loss. This will reduce the amount of heat needed to fill the building, in turn saving money year after year.

Healthier environment

Airborne pollutants, including dirt and dust, are often the trigger of allergies and can contribute to lower air quality. Icynene will help to shield property from such aggravators, as the foam will expand to create an internal seal, improving the quality of the air in the property, helping to alleviate common causes of irritation.

25 year manufacturer's warranty

Green Horizon Energy Solutions is one of only a handful of fully accredited, official contractors of Icynene in the UK, meaning all of our technicians are fully licensed installers. As such, we are able to offer as standard a 25-year warranty on the product for all installs.

Protection from damp, mould and pests

Icynene open cell spray foam is engineered in such a way that it does not retain water; instead it allows water vapour to diffuse through the insulation and dissipate from the building’s envelope, keeping out moisture from the internal structure which is a big cause of damp and mould. It is also breathable, which helps to prevent condensation. It also helps to deter pests such as mice, rats, termites, mites from entering a property, as once the product solidifies, these pests will find it difficult to gain entry or make nests.

Speed and accuracy of insulation

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation offer a variety of products for different applications, depending on the project’s needs. Each has its own unique characteristics, but can all be installed quickly and effectively, more so than traditional insulation methods, meaning minimum downtime for any business.

Reduced noise

Icynene products deliver high levels of sound insulation from inside and outside a property by virtually eliminating airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise. It is especially effective for those properties situated on a busy road to help eliminate traffic noise and can make huge positive differences to living spaces prone to external noise.

No draughts

Air leakage can be responsible for up to half of a property’s energy loss. The air-seal created by applying Icynene to the internal structure of a building means no gaps exist from which a draught can appear; this helps maintain a more consistent internal temperature, minimises heat loss and reduces waste, creating an efficient and comfortable living or working space.

Lower carbon footprint

As Icynene helps to reduce heat loss from a property, much less energy is needed to help keep a comfortable temperature throughout, thereby reducing a property’s carbon footprint on the environment.

Safe and certified

Icynene is non-toxic and is certified by the BBA, ETA and IAB.
