MARIETTA, GA – October 16, 2012 – Premium Spray Products, Inc. was featured in a video produced by Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative, Inc. (CEMC). The ‘edu-tainment’ video, called “Co-Op Crashers,” provides viewers with information about how to save money on their energy bills.
Both Premium Spray Products and Advanced Energy Insulation (AEI) were invited to participate in the video to highlight the energy-saving benefits of spray foam insulation.
The host of “Co-Op Crashers,” Jack Walker, begins the program by visiting a member’s home and conducting a walk-through to point out what changes need to take place in order to make the residence more energy efficient. One major problem they discover is that the existing insulation in the attic and crawlspace is insufficient and desperately requires and upgrade.
Premium and AEI had quite a job on their hands since the improperly insulated attic was losing heat in the winter, while heat would barrel into the house during the summer. A thermal imaging gun showed that when the outside air temperature was less than 75 degrees, the temperature on the roof deck reached over 120 degrees. Spray foam was applied to the roof decking to provide both robust insulation and a tightly sealed barrier preventing outside air from penetrating the attic. Spray foam was also used to seal the band joist in the basement in order to prevent additional air infiltration.
After all upgrades were completed, the overall energy leakage in the home was reduced from 76 to 36 percent, significantly lowering energy costs, coming as welcome news to the homeowner and perhaps others looking to reduce energy costs in their own homes.
