Why Foam? Why RetroFoam?

After years in the construction industry, it was no secret to the RetroFoam of the Carolinas team that the most energy efficient buildings were those that had incorporated foam insulation into their building components.

Cool-temperature buildings with no AC units-- In the SUMMER

Early in his construction career, Jason was privileged to build high strength, energy efficient buildings (churches, schools, auditoriums) all across the United States. One of the main components to these buildings was their two to three inches of closed cell foam insulation. In the summer, these buildings, without having HVAC units installed yet, were a cool retreat for the construction workers to duck into for a quick break.

$250 to Heat a 4200 Square-Foot House in a Frigid Northwest Winter

While crisscrossing the country with his construction projects his family stayed in a 4,200 square foot home in Idaho Falls during the winter months. The home had polyurethane spray foam in the walls. When he got the energy bill after heating the home for a month of children running in and out of the snow, Jason was shocked to see that it was only $250.

Cool Attics in Florida

Later, while building schools in Florida and going into the foamed attic spaces in July, the difference in the outside temperatures and the foam insulated attic space was startling!

He asked if the mechanical contractor had mistakenly put a supply vent in the attic. After searching around, it was clear that the temperature differential was because of the incredible thermal properties of the foam.

Air-Sealed Homes Have Less Allergens

Another issue that always puzzled the team was, how could a family go to bed at night and, with windows and doors closed, wake up the next morning with allergic reactions to the pollens from outside? What could be done to homes to better seal them up AFTER they had already been built? How could he help reduce the allergens that were slipping inside the home?

Again, homes that were air-sealed with foam insulation had a reduced number of allergens that were infiltrating the home!

Helping Home Owners Find Relief From High Energy Bills

But how could he and his team bring the benefits of foam insulation to the masses? Homes were built! Removing walls and spraying foam in the cavities was too expensive and not practical. Few people had opted to spend the money on spray foam insulation for new construction. But he also knew that once the homeowners were in their homes and they had to start paying those power bills, month after month, with energy costs rising, they felt enslaved to their power company and were searching for relief.

Joining the RetroFoam Family

That’s when Jason discovered RetroFoam. After calls to the corporate offices and visits to other RetroFoam dealers, Jason and his team were sold on the product. With RetroFoam he and his team are now able to help homeowners reduce their energy costs and keep the dust and pollens out of their homes by injecting the foam into the exterior walls, spraying in the attics, basements, and crawl spaces, and helping to seal up the home.
