Heating and cooling accounts for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American household. Adequate insulation can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 20%. Our Viking Insulation team installs both Owens Corning AttiCat Expanding Blown-In Insulation and JM Corbond III Closed-Cell Polyurethane Foam (SPF). They are ready to work with you to help you decide what works best for your project, lifestyle, and budget. Good insulation can help you be more comfortable in your home or business during harsh Maine weather while using less energy and saving you money.
ATTICAT EXPANDING BLOWN-IN INSULATION
Our team uses an insulation blowing machine that breaks up and fluffs the AttiCat Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas Insulation, adding millions of little air pockets. This conditioning is what gives the AttiCat its insulating power. The Fiberglas insulation does not settle giving it a long-lasting, energy-saving R-value.
JM CORBOND III
Our team of experts spray JM Corbond III closed-cell polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation, which outperforms competing closed-cell spray foam systems under many conditions. JM Corbond III SPF has an extremely high R-value acting as a barrier to keep the indoors from the outside climate, creating thermal, air and moisture isolation. With an R-value of over R-7 per inch of insulation, it attains an R-21 when sprayed at a thickness of 3-inches and an R-42 at 6-inches.
Unlike other types of insulation that work by using air to insulate, JM Corbond III SPF is a solid cellular plastic that creates a dense barrier between the indoor and outdoor climates. In addition to eliminating air infiltration and leakage, it is a vapor barrier and is not subject to mold growth. Moisture condensation and accumulation can seriously reduce the longevity of a building and can be a threat to occupant health. When tested in accordance with ASTM E96, JM Corbond III SPF, is a class I vapor retarder when installed at 1.5 inches within the isolation system; this dramatically reduces moisture damage and does not support mold growth in accordance with ASTM E1338.
JM Corbond III SPF will last the life of a structure because it expands and adheres to everything it touches. Unlike other types of insulation it will not shrink, settle or crack. The thermal performance will not degrade over time. In fact, according to studies done by the National Association of Home Builders, closed-cell spray insulation in wall cavities, such as JM Corbond III SPF, can increase the racking strength of a wall from 75 to 200% when installed correctly.
MEET OUR VIKING INSULATION INSTALLATION TEAM
All of the members of our Corbond spray team have completed spray polyurethane foam health and safety courses in order to ensure that all insulation will be applied effectively and efficiently while adhering to all safety precautions. BJ Moore, our team expert has received his SPF insulation master installer certification to make certain that you’ll receive the best installation around. Additionally, both BJ Moore and Brian Cross have received The Building Performance Institute’s Building Analyst Energy Auditor Certification. Providing them with a broad knowledge on energy consumption and how proper insulation may increase your comfort and efficiency while decreasing your energy bills. We are proud to have BJ Moore and Brian Cross as part of the Viking Team for Viking Insulation installation!
